I bought this truck from a older gentleman who said he put well over 10,000 dollars in the truck since he purchased it in 1997 . It has always been garaged kept since he purchased it and rarely driven. Truck has a rebuilt big block 360 with a recent rebuilt automatic transmission that both run and shift great. Newer brakes , shocks, hoses etc.. Brand new complete ac system that works great and blows nice and cold . Power steering, automatic transmission , later model wheels, linex bed liner, roll in lock bed cover , am /fm radio and more . The paint on the truck looks great and is very straight. It looks black in the pictures but it is really dark green with metallic type flake . The paint is a few years old now ,so it does show some small blemishes here and there from age. Great solid body with very little rust. The only real rust is under the battery tray and underside of hood on driver side (very common for these trucks) . Perfect glass with rear slider installed ! Newer upholstered seat , good aftermarket carpet with original style floor mat. The dash pad was never reinstalled after painting. The truck does have a exhaust leak which I think is coming from the manifold on the driver side? All the lights work perfectly including brake lights. The gauges do have a mind of their own, they work most of the time then sometimes they do not ( I think it just a loose ground wire or something going to the gauges) . All the chrome is present except for one small piece which is present in the pictures . Overall the truck is a great driver and in excellent shape for the age. A perfect driver at what will be sold for a great price!!! Yes it is reliable I just drove it over a 100 miles. Low reserve so do not miss out on this awesome looking truck !
It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.
Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.
Ask the average consumer - at least, those who follow the goings-on in the automotive industry - which carmaker they'd most closely associate Microsoft, and the answer you'd most likely get would be Ford. The Blue Oval automaker, after all, was at the forefront of bringing Microsoft technology into cars with its pioneering Sync system, and, though reality didn't turn out as such, Ford's CEO was recently touted as a potential future head of the Redmond-based software giant. But that relationship, according to the latest reports, could be coming to an end.
Alan Mullaly kiboshed the idea of leaving Dearborn for Redmond, but more importantly Ford is tipped to be ditching Microsoft in developing its next-generation Sync system. In its place, Ford is expected to partner with BlackBerry's QNX division.
Now, before you go balking "BlackBerry?! But they're finished!" consider that QNX is (or at least was) an independent entity that Research In Motion (as BlackBerry's Ontario-based parent company was then known) just happened to have bought back in 2010. QNX provides control systems to everything from nuclear power plants and UAVs to automakers like Audi, BMW and Porsche.
If waiting for the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang to hit dealerships is just too tall of an order, you'll be happy to hear that there is now an alternative means of getting behind the wheel of America's favorite pony car. The Mustang is making its video game debut in Need For Speed Rivals.
"We worked closely with the development team at EA to provide them with engineering data for the new Mustang, several months before we showed it to the rest of the world," said Ford product licensing manager Mark Bentley. "Computer design models enabled the game developers to create an accurate representation of the new Mustang before it goes on sale."
Players will have access to five unique designs for the Mustang, allowing a degree of individuality beyond solid colors and decals. According to Digital Marketing Manager Andrea Zuehlk of Ford, those designs are drawn from the four most popular designs on the Mustang Customizer, an online, mobile and tablet app that allows the public to design their own custom Mustang. A fifth design, penned by drift racer Vaughn Gittin, Jr., is also available.
