Except Fords are super dependable and awesome trucks.
Edit: I also like GM and Toyota trucks, and have no need to hate others for what they like. Weird tribalism for no reason at all.
@big freedom, how much are they paying you?
@JewishXenu, lol. I am totally willing to be bought!
@big freedom, love the trucks hate the cars
@big freedom, something we have in common.
@big freedom, f150 is the number one selling truck by a massive margin
@MetalHeadTony, the mustang is a badass car.
@big freedom, I was referring to the basic fiesta/focus/fusion types.
@MetalHeadTony, oh yeah. Those are terrible. But all car makers make cheap mass production cars like that.
@big freedom, absolutely. That’s why I bought a little Nissan Sentra. Not the greatest car, but at least my crappy transmission was $7,000 instead of $17,000.
@big freedom, cars are vehicle master race!
@MetalHeadTony, I have a 2008 fusion, and even after a wreck (that my brother caused) that broke the front right axle. It still runs as well if not better than my friends cars. it has also out lasted a couple.
@big freedom, the general rule ive heard is dont buy dodge or ford for anything and my dad had a dodge truck and it was nothing but nightmares but i know a lot of people with fords and havent actually heard anything negative from them and ford is suppose to be known for trucks. Im guessing they had a few bad years but have straightened out their game again and overall are good trucks
@PunnyBaker, it’s mostly people that just need to belong to a tribe. They’ve been raised to believe that “Chevy good” or “Ford good”. Their dad drove a Chevy and mocked fords or vice-versa and now they parrot that without really even knowing why, other than it makes them feel superior and that they belong to the “right tribe”
It’s the exact same thing with political parties.
@PunnyBaker, it comes from a time not all that long ago when Ford really did have poor quality, but that has changed a lot. Primarily, competition in the market after the vehicle tariffs were lifted made them have to compete in quality and price more. They made a lot of ground in the US market after a successful “built without your tax dollars” marketing campaign. Currently, Ford builds great quality vehicles and they are working on innovation in the market, but are admittedly behind in tech compared to some of the competition. They are also backing out of the Sedan market to focus on trucks, SUVs, crossovers, and scooters.
@big freedom, and they've been the #1 selling truck for over 35 years. I've never had an issue with an F-Series. These stupid jabs are tiring and petty. You're fine with any brand of truck.
@big freedom, but, but, the patriarchy!!!
Pretty sure that’s a Chevy
@shocking60, that’s what I thought too.
@shocking60, it is, but the one behind it is definitely an f250
1. This is a chevy (can tell by tail lights)
2. Old ass repost
Boomers on Facebook: *pounds table and wheezes*
I used to work installing aftermarket stuff on trucks. Fords were some of the best to work on. Dodge Rams were the most poorly thought out, obnoxious things to work on.
I'm still driving my 2007 Ford focus... I've had to replace the battery... Never broken down.
Thank you Facebook, very cool.
The best part is that truck is a Chevy/GMC. You can tell by the square wheel openings.
You guys realize what Ford stands for right?
Fix It Again Tony! Hehehe
@CaptianMcKenderson, dammit Bobby, if you’re weren’t my son, I’d give you a hug.
He cut off the last line.
It's supposed to read.
"While you wait for the tow truck to pick up your friends chevy"
Everybody in here pointing at Ford and Chevy for this abomination but don't realize the tailgates have a clasp like Chinese pickups fo.
The Ford Triton V8 from 1997 to mid 2000’s sucked ass. The spark plug design was absolutely ridiculous. When you change the spark plugs, they always break off and remains stuck in the cylinder head. Ford’s fix? Offer a tool to remove the broken spark plugs. They still use this modular design today, but Ford learned from their errors. The Coyote modular variant is a hands down winner platform used in high power late model Mustangs.
There’s not one perfect manufacturer. Even the Germans fück up once in a while. BMW and their VANOS pumps and SMG transmission issues. Not to mention phaser issues. Mercedes and their infamous Balance Shaft issue in their 3.5 liter V6’s. That’s the facts of life. Whatever car manufacturer you’re in love with and defend to the end of time, they’re fückups too.
Why the fück would you ever need that. It’s not like you’re in danger of falling off.
