No. We use Classic Granite & Marble.

I'm telling you, that thing was nice. I'm in an 02 Dakota with no support of any kind really. That seat was loads better than mine.

They drove it down to OBX to install for us. I asked the installer how it was. He said they offered him a newer Silverado but he thought the F150 was more comfortable.

The f150 is much more comfortable. Was not that long ago I was truck shopping with my mate. He was set on a Chevy as he heard they were better than ford. He had a ford already an older one. I went for test drive with him and was not impressed at all.

My 5 year old f150 rode nicer and was much more comfortable and Quieter too. I told him to drive my truck when he left. Hardly even got out the Chevy lot and he was sold. He now has a 2014 fx4 loaded. One of the black out ones.

There's one of 4 reason people ain't driving ford.

1. They didn't test them
2. They are brand loyal
3. They can't afford them
4. They just don't know better

Have another mate who had a older ford and wanted a 2010 f150. He couldn't afford it so he bought the equivalent Chevy and he's been happy with it. He still would have preferred the ford though

Since 1992, I've owned two ford diesels, and four dodge diesels.
Both Ford's cost more in repairs than I initially paid for them.
The 92 F250 was comfy though.
Will never buy a Ford Diesel again.
Would consider the F 150 though, if I was in the market for a little truck.

Ford diesel's have come a long way the last couple years. Dodge had the lead since late 80's through to 06-10'ish but I'd be torn between a dodge and ford now. Drive a dodge now prob try a ford next.

That's exactly why Toyota got that massive fine. They hide the issue and coveted it up for ages and wouldn't send out any recall documents. Even dealers were not notifying customers that parts needed to be changed. Off the top of my head it affected mainly 3 model years of vehicles. 2010 was the main year as it was all over the news and it was the year after I bought mine the forums were full of people taking the piss out of tundras for all their recalls and problems.

Like Toyota them Self Toyota owners do like to admit there's problems with their vehicles. $1.2b sure made them swing on their heels though.

Just because the tundra has more recalls than any other truck don't be made. Just buy a ford lol

How is knowing the differences between each vehicle dumb. That's called an educated buyer. Its like iPhones. There's people out there who think an iPhone is the best and will argue it until their death and theirs people out there who own the iPhone and know full well it's not the best. The first people are the ones who think that everything they own is the best. These people need to get of their high horse and get the real facts not made up facts.

Re: Mid Sized F150 Barri?


I am in a Jeep Wrangler now but I had Fords for over 38 years and they are way better that a Toyota. I had a 09 Tacoma and it was ok but the tailgate must be made of old tin cans because it almost folded up when I tried to put my Harley in the bed. No thanks I'll take a Ford.

My iPhone still is the best!

Re: Mid Sized F150 Barri?


Say what you want to say. The resale value on the Tacomas and Tundra are always way better than any of the Big 3. I got almost $3k more for my 2007 tundra than my dad got for his 2007 F150 and they were both similarly equipped and priced when they went out the door. Trucks aren't my dream vehicle, so from a business investment perspective, I'll stick with the tundra.

And the gas pedal thing was a complete load of crap. Once again the media blew it up, any car could have a mat that makes the pedal stick. Lets be clear on it, the fix was they shaved the pedal and put a warning label on the mat.

Let's stick to facts. Our friends Toyota had the recall and they had to reinforce the pedal assembly because it was too weak. After Toyota done that they still had a bunch of people paranoid about the issue and they sent out another TSB that was making sure the pedal did not get caught up on anything. The original fix though was the big fix on all the models affected.

Here's all the info about what vehicles are affected and what the fix was. http://pressroom.toyota.com/article_...rticle_id=1861

A Jeep Wrangler has one of the best resale values.

Re: Mid Sized F150 Barri?


If I were going to get a 1/2 ton truck, I'd probably go with an F150 ecoboost. 3/4 Ton, any of the big 3 would be the same for me, I'd probably just see which one I could get the best deal on. 1 ton, Diesel would be the Ram, no question. No single manufacturer has the market cornered.

For full size SUVs, I will still choose GM over Ford all day any day.

I never really paid much attention to 3/4+ tons so im up in the air what i would go for on that. I do like the GM ones but that is nothing more than looks. I have not liked the interior of any of the 3/4 tons but i hear Ford are gonna start making their interiors in the 3/4+ tons more like the f150 which would be nice.

Re: Mid Sized F150 Barri?


Everyone has recalls, part of life with a rolling computer these days:

http://www.lemonauto.com/complaints/ford/ford_f150.htm

Some worse than others:

The recall, announced Monday, covers 1.1 million F-150, F-250 and Lincoln Blackwood pickups. The models involved were sold in cold-weather states where road salt can cause straps metal straps holding up the tanks to rust. If the straps break, the tanks can hit the ground, rupture and catch fire.

Ford also recalled more than 10.4 million vehicles in several increments from 1999 to 2007 because a faulty cruise-control switch could cause fires. The recalls covered more than a dozen vehicles built from 1992 to 2004, including some F-Series models.

That recall was not on Monday. That was around 2010.

Of course they all get recalls. Just the nature of the beast though. they all have them but some Jess than others.

Re: Mid Sized F150 Barri?


Looked at the new F150s up close today. 4x4 with cloth crew cab $42,000. Same configuration Platinum $61,000.

Crewmax Tundra cloth $42,000 Plattinum $49,000.

My trade in 86,000 miles Crewmax Limited $37,000 I paid $46,000. That works out to .10 a mile depreciation.

I give it to Ford it's a huge step over the previous model let's hear a rebutted from the Fanboy comparatively speaking the dealership is searching for a red crewmax- with black leather.

Oh yeah- back seat is still much bigger in the Toyota. Fact Jack.
