Default Ford manual transmission 2012

My new employer gave me an allowance to purchase a truck. I wanted a manual since I have an F150 4.2 5 speed and love it. Since Ford no longer makes a manual, I had to look elsewhere. I had several choices but chose the Colorado 2.9 with the manual. What a great truck. Has lots of power and is built really well. I love it. Just a strong work truck for a man. I doubt it will have all those stupid problems that the Fords have. Looks like I am a GMC man from now on.
Thanks Ford!
I will keep my F150 (until the engine blows from the gasket problem), but I will leave the new autos to girls.
No more Fords for me.
LOL

Sorry your new employer gave you such a small allowance for a truck. I'm sure you did the best you could with what you had to work with. Half a truck is better than none. I hope he doesn't get too mad at you for not buying a whole truck.

Do real people make these posts or is it some kind of bot?
