FWIW, let me offer congrats to you and your daughter on her graduating med school! She's put in years of hard work most folks wouldn't have the backbone for even if they were lucky enough to have the brainpower. Five more years and she will have the key to the treasure chest![emoticon]


Exactly. She will be a general surgeon and her husband will be an orthopedic surgeon. At that point they will have a lot more money than I do and the truck will be their problem. But so far they have only received 2 or three paychecks and those are not very impressive. She had to have a vehicle for her 35 mile commute (her husband goes the opposite direction for his residency so they bought in the middle) so they bought a much more efficient vehicle. With fuel prices going up the pickup many not get many miles on it before they graduate. All the same, there are things that economy cars just can't do so they really need the truck at times.

But, they will be working 80+ hour weeks for those 5 years so I want whatever they have to be reliable instead of another problem.

I just talked with the dealer parts department and he said that Ford is not even trying provide parts for vehicles not under warrantee. However, he thinks that he has one from a big rebuilder (not Jasper) lined up and is trying to finalize the details.

The dealer is very put out with Ford in that they were billed for my engine in August and paid the bill. Over two months have gone by since they paid the bill and they just now found out that no motor is coming, no refund has been offered and Ford was happy letting all of that slide.

He also told me that he is having trouble getting parts for Chrysler products as well. He carries Chrysler products too.

After reading this, replacing the batteries in an EV F150 after 200-300K miles doesn't seem like that big of deal.

Best of luck to you in this situation.

but I am pretty sure that automakers are required by law to have spare parts available for vehicles up to 10 years old and Ford may be in violation of that law. Since Ford told me that 83 people have been waiting longer than me this could be a ready made class action suit.


That says it all....
Running around with your hand out for anyone that will feed you, regardless of their responsibility to do so....
Ok, then, next topic...have a nice day!


Not too worried:

- Ford could simply point back to the govt which shut down the economy and claim Force Majeure.
- Would an entire engine qualify as "spare parts".
- Then there is always the option...Ford could offer him an engine tomorrow from one of those 30,000 trucks sitting waiting for chips. The new engine price is $70k and as a bonus comes packaged in nifty truck shaped box on wheels.

I wonder if the dealer is put out enough with Ford to drop his franchise agreement with them?

FWIW I highly doubt the dealer paid up front for something they never recieved. Some parts department guy telling you that is most likely BS. As soon as you walked out the door the parts guy forgot all about you when he said "next".

When those ecopukes puke, all you're doing with a 10 yr old truck is throwing good money after bad. They're great engines for about the first 100K miles. After that it's a crapshoot.

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a awhile.

Having a little experience with them (@23 at present) in a business setting, sitting in one as I type this that leaks oil like a sieve that would cost @ 4K to repair, I see the maintenance and repair costs on them skyrocket when they pass 100K miles. But by all means go with YouTubers as gospel if you wish.
