problem #2

F-150 LX 4.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,002 miles


My 97 ford F-15 has been a horrible truck. Coolant leaked into motor & blew, engine light is always on and something stupid & minor is always breaking. I take VERY good care of my truck yet this does not help poor engineering and terrible design flaws.. It is my DUMB fault for buying a truck the 1st year they re-did the motor, body, and interior of the truck. 1st year vehicle always have lots of problems and issues. I know better now and will NEVER own any1st year anythings.!
