might as well give you a fiesta coming from a f350. I think they want real world trucks to test rather than ones will little miles and have only been test driven. either way, I wouldn't do it. like [MENTION=95892]MPETE[/MENTION] said, if something happened down the road they would be first to blame. who knows what they're doing. are they going to be driving the heck out of this thing for those 2 weeks?

I wouldn't consider it without an insurance waiver either. That way if they wreck it, they are responsible to fix it.

I wouldn't do it. $100 and a tank of gas isn't worth it in my opinion. Plus of you are always concerned about dent and chips in your paint what if the truck comes back with new damage? They should really target fleet customers for this. They put tons of miles on these trucks And would be more willing to participate if they have any back-up vehicles.

I got one similar yesterday from Jacobs, a company that procures vehicles for the EPA wanting to test my 2011 XLT for 1-4 weeks. $200 and a rental or $500 with no rental.

Well now that is consensus. LOL

I also got information from 2 others that did actually participate in the past. They mentioned scratched exterior and interior when getting their trucks back. Even if they ultimately pay to fix it, why would I want to bother with that.

There is a space where they ask to tell them why I refuse. Just going to mention what has happened to others.

Thanks for the input guys.

I'd do it if they let me use Carl Edward's #99 Fusion for 2 weeks.
