Amusement: Own Ford Ranger, engine from Germany. Ford failed to check head bolt torque specs before installing 4.0 engine in Ranger. No less than 7 trips to the Ford dealer with the answer of "Don't know why it leaks oil or pings". I fixed it after 6 hours playing with it.3rd light leaks. Ford doesn't sell 3rd light or gasket for it. This year rear sliding window leaks.Had 93 Nissan pickup, transformer made nosies, day one. At it's end everything leaked (head gasket, transformer, valve cover, etc). Wouldn't buy another Nissan.Previous Toyota 4x4 pickup had zero issues @ 135K, when I sold it. I miss it. Will buy another pickup (Tacoma / Tundra).
HKWolf: Still not loving the Sync system but i can get used to it
The more you eat the more you fart: It doesn't sound like much, but mine is an SX with the 2.4L engine with 173HP. It's quick enough to smoke a v-6 mustang in the 1/4 mile
SacriliciousBeerSwiller: mysticcat: Most of Ford's reliability issues have to do with the audio system- Sync/my Ford Touch. It sucks.It seems a bit disingenuous for CR to treat issues with the infotainment console the same as drive train problems for the purposes of reliability (especially when many competitors have no viable equivalent). I agree though, Touch kinda sucks, but I always found Sync to be pretty cool for the phone features alone. Once you get your cell connected to the thing, it's really hard to go back to life without it (if you're on the road a lot).
SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Tr0mBoNe: Why would I pay for this information?From non-car experts, no less.Toyotas have sucked for a decade. Reliable? For the most part. Good cars? No.
AirForceVet: Once a Zoomie, always a Zoomie.
Krymson Tyde: I thought it was Found On Road Dead.No comment re: Pontiac.
Elzar: I would rather give my money to the hardworking Japanese
