Great Buying Experience

No Longer Sharing a Car with My Daughter on 05/28/2016

Customer Service: 5.0 Buying Process: 4.0 Overall Facilities: 4.0

Went to Jackson Motor Co. this morning with my daughter. My daughter had called earlier concerning a couple of cars on the lot and Alan remembered speaking with her. He was very friendly and courteous. Instead of having us wait around in the office to see if the financing was going to go through, he suggested that he could call her when he got the answer. She received the call as we were finishing up our lunch. When we arrived back to complete the paperwork, we were able to meet Mr. Jim, the owner. By the time the paperwork was completed, I felt like part of a family. I would definitely recommend this dealer.

I have owned this truck for 11 years and have done very little other than scheduled maintenance. I have hauled trailers up mountains, gone 4 wheeling over very large boulders, driven very long stretches with no problems what- so-ever. I have 198,000 miles on the odometer and have been amazed by the continued reliability of this truck. Ford has my business for life!

i have had my ford for about 8 months and i have been shocked over and over i have hauled over 15,000 with a trailer. the most impresive was the 5100 hundred of scrap medal shavings just in the bed, no trailer. i love my truck, the only thing is i get lousy gas milege...

This truck does everything well. What's amazing today, 13 years later, is its reliability and it drives new. "Built Ford Tough" is true. This isnt a commercial, just 13 years of ownership. I bet the truck has 13 more years left. Has 120K now and should do 250k. After 1200 miles, always used Mobil1. Replaced shocks and tires normal interval. Oxygen sensor replaced once and just changed the plugs at 120K and engine sounds new and runs out perfect.

We bought this truck from a drilling company after it had 155,000 miles on it. Its a tank. The drilling company obviously did not take it easy on it and we have had minimal problems with it. The head gasket blew on it and some minor brake issues. With the 7.5L 460 and a 5 spd it has alot of power. The fuel milage is not the best because of the large v8. The truck is very solid and reliable. Suspension is very strong for hauling and towing. Lots of power and braking control with large trailers.

Bought at 62k, now at 97k. Strongest pickup I have ever owned. Trailer pulling dream. Only has the 4.6 and still pulls like a mule. 100% dependable. Moving into a Super Duty, but sure going to miss this truck.

No major problems (yet). Mine has the small v8 with tow package so it is slow going up hills with a trailer. At 100k miles transmission is starting to have rough shifts when cold. Haven't done much towing or city driving and it has a cooler as part of the tow package. Original Goodyear tires lasted 92k miles! Still on original disk brake pads at 108k miles. Best truck I have owned.

I've enjoyed this truck. It's a work truck. I've had 4 brake jobs - too often in my opinion. Other than that it's been flawless and always ready to go. Very comfortable, even on 8 hour drives.

Great truck. I've had a lot of trucks in my business, many Fords. My experience has always been a big truck with a little engine and lots of gears. Poor power to weight and constant shifting. The Navistar DIT diesel is definetly the way to go with a truck. When the turbo spools up, there's no catching it. It'll pull a house off the foundation and gets good mileage (for a truck) as well. There are plenty of chatrooms for Q & A on this setup if you have a problem, and the guys will give you lots of responses to keep it going.

I've had a little trouble with the capacitor on the diesel. However, Ford has a 3rd generation capacitor that is now reliable. I added a leaf all around to raise the truck, rather than using a lift kit.Happy with the results. This truck is extremely reliable and will do anything and get me anywhere. Put 265 tires on it right away. Plastic trim on the inside of the XLT is fragile Rear seat is ok, although we've had teenagers sit in the back across the country twice. If you get a diesel, get the manual transmission. You get the great advantage of using engine compression off-road and in poor road conditions.

This is one tough truck.

After driving this truck for snow plowing, pulling a 30 foot boat, and as a daily driver I have come to one conclusion, that this truck can perform at anytime you want. This is a great truck for doing anything.
