I dont understand why so many people here believe Ford sucks. Every car has good and bad point to it and some are just lemmons. I have a '93 for F250 long bed crew cab with the 460 and 270,000 miles on it. it runs great!! And let me tell you this truck will stomp on any stock Bonneville, Grand Prix, Mustang, SHO, ect. I like fords and GM'*. I have always loved Pontiacs for their style and never liked Chevy trucks.
The point is that a few bad experiances with cars of unknown history does not mean that an entire manufacturer sucks or a certain line of cars suck.
