You forgot "Found On Road Dead".FixOnRoadDaily
I've owned a Oldsmobile, seven Chevy's, five Fords, a GMC, a Datsun, and a Dodge.
Had a problem with one of the chevy's and MAJOR problems all-the-time with the Dodge.
To me, a car is a car is a car is a car. Substitute the word truck if you like. but i'll never ever buy another dodge if it's the last vehicle ever made.
I STILL have nightmares about that p.o.s. and it was in 1977.
When it comes to cars, who cares. Ford only makes the great Mustang now. When it comes to 4x4 trucks & sport utitilty Ford rocks the USA.
Go back to old V8's bull. My wifes turbo V6 F150 eats V8's of any brand for breakfast lunch or dinner. Its so fun to suck a Hemi v8 up the exhaust pipes. As far as 20 year old toyotas, big deal. I have a 20 year old F250 V10 engine, the truck has been beat to death on job sites, elk hunting trips & is now the heavy duty plow truck. I'll hook it up to any light weight toyota pickup out there rip the toyota junk in half & then pull it up red mtn pass. Ford USA #1! Ford F150 #1 seller 36 years in a row. Not toyota, not govenrment motors, not dodge. Just Ford. And the new Bronco will coming out will blow Chrysler's Jeep sales right off the charts. By the way old original Bronco's restored are worth $150,000, if you can even find one. Other words this has been Paul Harvey with the rest of the story. Have a nice day.
Yep, the wifes gets 21.3 right now on her F150 4x4 short trips & around town. Now if this truck was powered back in the good old days with a great 460 V8 it would have half the horse power & a 3rd less torque. And deliver a good old days a 8mpg doing it. I know I had several back in the 80's & 90's. And as far as this BS chains & gears on these new motors there are rated to 200 to 250,000 miles before replacing the chain drive units. Back in the good old days V8's the timing chain between crank shaft & the cam shaft was a weak link. At 50,000 miles the timing chains were stretched & worn. Engines would not fire on top dead center. The after market fixed this problem with quality timing chains & metal gears. Some good old days V8's had plastic toothed timing chain gears which wore fast & sometimes even broke. Resulting in a sucked valve going through a piston. Plus these good old carburated V8's stunk. Exhaust stunk too. Hope that this helps.Well said Russ. My turbo V6 F150 gets me 21 MPG without even trying.
