After the IWE, phaser, and plug issues on my '06 I swore I wasn't going to own another Ford. But their pricing at the end of the year got me. I won't say I resent it, since a comparable Ram or GM...

We have an FCA dealer in town that puts those pulse lights on all their new vehicles, then charges buyers something like $300 for it. I guess that's their replacement for the etched glass thing they...

I got $3000 conquest cash last November, that program ran 6-8 weeks I believe. The dealer that brought it up knew the ending date. Didn't have to trade it in, just needed to submit a copy of the...

I'm not sure this could have been done worse. Wow, what a hack job.

That's ridiculous. Pretty much all of their products overlap.

And those Chevy wheel wells aren't round. They are round-ish. Which is why they still look so awkward.

Some of the ads for these systems really bother me. I think it is a Toyota one where these women are out on the town highly distracted (likely drunk if it were real life) and the system keeps them...

Not being alarmist, but if you are really having that many close calls you should consider not driving.

Mine has gone up now that it's warmer out. In the winter I struggled to hit 20 on the interstate at 75 MPH. In town I'm now getting 19 which I'm happy with. Almost 5 MPG better than my old 5.4. ...

Sure seems to be that way. You can buy an early model before the bugs are out, or a later model that's had cost cut out of it.

Or you can be like me and get a first year drivetrain and cost...

Serious question: If carbon buildup was never an issue, why did Ford add the cost and complication of dual injection in 2018?

Going by the attitude you have displayed in your posts, complete with calling them out by name, it's not very surprising to me that they do not want your business. I could have the wrong impression,...

Easy. Pricing $30K trucks at $50K by throwing options on them is how Ford makes their profits. That's driven by consumer behavior, not regulation.

Mine is one of those $50K XLT Crews, by the way,...

Truck prices are not any higher if you account for inflation and compare apples to apples (not decked out crew cabs).

Here's a brand new regular cab by me for $20K. That would be about $13K in...

I have to wonder if some of the people so upset with government interference were around in the '70s when our major cities were as smoggy as Bejing is today. Or if they have noticed what diesel...

TFL drag races with a trailer

Another silly but entertaining video from TFL Truck. I was surprised the stock 2.7 outran a tuned 5.0. It also outran the stock 3.5, however it looks like they didn't brake torque the 3.5. ...

Utter nonsense. Yes the Ecoboosts were made because of CAFE standards. But guess what, Ford was the only manufacturer to put gas turbos in trucks until a few months ago. It's no coincidence that they...

Huh, this is my first set of Wranglers and I didn't realize that. Turns out mine are Fortitude HT. Which would be "Highway Tire". My window sticker says they should be A/T tires and I assumed they...

I have not been impressed with the ride or traction of the Wranglers. I've liked Firestone Destination A/Ts in the past. Good combination of price, ride, traction, and quiet.

I think this gets lost sometimes. The last time I bought a truck I had a choice between the anemic 4.6 and the decent performing but unremarkable 5.4. The little 2.7 performs way better than the 5.4...
