The engine is strong minus the heads which spit out spark plugs if you don't keep after them. Suspension is strong and requires little attention. When we got there, they said it was out with a customer. I've even had to sleep in the back seat and believe it or not it is quite comfortable and roomy in case of have to. Another great thing about this truck is the fact that it is a 2004 and it has hardly any rust to speak of.
The salesmen were basically unhelpful. Transmission has gone 100,000 miles with no problems other than a rotted return line due to road brine again. The big negative about this vehicle is the fact that it likes to guzzle some diesel. Also, you can fit 3 full sized dirt bikes in the back of the 6. .
This is common for this size of vehicle but at around 14 mpg, the diesel sure adds up and drains the wallet in a hurry. If I were asked to buy this truck again I would. The best part about this vehicle is that it has a crew cab which makes riding inside of it very comfortable especially if you have a family. Have already been down to Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, with my F250. I think another con which really doesn't bother me any, would be the looks of the interior on the dashboard and head unit. It is replacing a 1981 F250 that is getting tired. The second time around with this purchase I would certainly do some more research into trucks first.
Also, it has a sun roof which keeps the kids occupied while going on long trips. It is replacing a 1981 F250 that is getting tired. Such as, oil changes, tires, filters, batteries, alternator, etc. I said No it was the options, but the options are not here. Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: 0 reviews I bought this as a basic utility vehicle I live out in the boondocks and so far it has been ideal for me. I've ridden in many different trucks and have owned different makes and models and this truck is the most comfortable to ride it both in the smoothness of the leaf springs working and the roominess of the cab.
Don't go here unless you want to get ripped-off. We waited and then we saw it. But in the end I always went back to Ford. All power windows, locks, chairs, sun roof still work which out lasted my 2004 Expedition. Only a year before had they introduced a turbo for the 7. We called 30 minutes b4 we got there.
Many people have told me the 6. The body and bed are of solid construction. Have already been down to Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, with my F250. When you get higher mileage some squeaks can be heard but nothing out of normal. My F150, which was totaled at 220,000 miles still was great and pulled strong.
I've even had to sleep in the back seat and believe it or not it is quite comfortable and roomy in case of have to. The horn is weak but easily fixable and needs a protective cover due to its location of mounting. My F-250 was the biggest truck I had ever driven. I think another con which really doesn't bother me any, would be the looks of the interior on. When I asked if they were firm, they said the price is what got you here. I like that this vehicle has tons of room on the inside since it is a crew cab and rides very nicely.
I've done it many times before I finally purchased myself a trailer. Transmission has gone 100,000 miles with no problems other than a rotted return line due to road brine again. This vehicle also has all the towing power you'll ever need in a truck when it comes to trailers. I can honestly say that I actually did sleep well and the back seat had more room than I expected for me and my golden retriever. Brakes are also good but the road brine in the northeast is murder on the steel brakes which can be easily upgraded to stainless or copper nickle.
