Old dependable by Bill in Celina, Tx on 01/06/2012. Trim: 1997 Ford F-150 SuperCab Short Bed 2WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I bought this Ford used with 42,000 miles on it and it has been a workhorse. I currently have 265,000 miles on and have done very little as far as preventine maintenance. Changed the plugs and wires once. I had a front seal go out on the transmission once and 4 oxygen sensors. Other then that just tires, brakes and oil changes. I just took a 570 mile road trip to Houston and back an she purred like a kitten. Best truck going for it's time. Previously had a Ranger that had over 275,000. I also have a 07 Escape with 151,000. All of these vehicles have been great.
Cons: 3rd door not being on the driver side
Overall review: Can't wait for my next one.
