Default How reliable and tough has your Ford been?

I was thinking the other day about the only couple problems my truck has had the last 181k miles versus my girlfriends dad's 07 dodge 3500.


Anyway, whats broken or tore up in the lifetime of your truck?

Year:
Cab:
2wd or 4wd?:
Auto or manual:
Miles:

Whats broke:

(Copy and paste this format.)

year:1999
cab:supercab
2wd or 4wd:2wd
auto or manual:auto
miles:161,xxx kms, so about 100,000 miles

whats broke: the chassis (recent, from rust, fixed by welder friend/neighbor for $100 and some welding stuff), a leaky transmission line (recent, my dad fixed it),gas tank straps had problems (last year, fixed/replaced), cap on the gearshift (glued back on)....that's about every problem we've had with her except rust (fixed).....she was repaired from a minor accident I think though (pevious owners).

that's all i know about. a great truck (of course, a ch*vy would have a list as long as your arm at a tenth of her age LOL), very great truck. no doubt she will continue to serve well for another while until a younger companion (never a replacement) relieves her of her truck duties in another while.

4 problems, 1 of which that could never affect her function, plus a little rust, in almost 14 years and 14.5 NL winters.
I'm not complainin', anyone else??

cab: Screw
2wd or 4wd:2wd
auto or manual:auto
miles:77k miles


What broke:
Spark plugs misfire on #7 @ 60k - ~$700 with Cops and labor they broke 6.
Bent Drive shaft: it got towed on a flat bed, idk what they did, and it shouldn't have towed. Warranty picked it up, the service guy told a white lie but it never should have bent.
At ~ 64k Cat converter bank 1 got clogged. Was covered under 80k exhaust warranty, they replaced both cats, if it wasn't covered I was or prepared to drop a performer header back kit on It XD, saved my pocket book though. Go figure 8k for fords cats is what was quoted to me, but u can get aftermarket performance kits for around 5-6k, SMH

So that's it so far and I may take care of her, but I also use it as a truck and dog her when I need to.
