I've been following this thread....
Everything that's been said so far .........
Makes no sense to me at all........
I've owned two Ford F-150s.
The one I have now is a 2007 model.
I bought it in 2008 with about 10,000 miles on it.
It now has a little over 100,000 miles and has not required any significant parts replacements.
If I didn't have it, I'd have a Toyota.
I hope this helps.
