Default Enough with the Ford bashing

Enough with the Ford bashing. My F150 has never left me stranded in 13 years except for the 1 flat tire two years ago. Still even has all the original sensors. Never cleaned the TB, MAF, or IAC. All i do is regular oil changes, a tuneup every few years, and fluids every 5. Its honestly been the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. maybe I'm lucky, since its also my only Ford, but then I meet others who feel the same way about their Ford pickups too.

I've sunk more money into my wifes OLDS in the last year than I have in 13 years on the F150, and now the OLDS ac doesn't work. You know what, my Ford will freeze you out in 100 degree weather even though its 2 years older and its never even been recharged.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Olds too, Its a great car too, just not as great as my Ford.

I've pushed a ford tempo 2 miles because the engine blew up at 40,000 miles without warning.


I've had to hike about 3 miles after we were offroading in an explorer and it broke and axle.


However a friend of mine has a taurus with 210,000 miles on it I belive
