I Bought Used Vehicle From The Bo’s Autorama On 6/2004 And Used It Once Or Twice In The First Year. I Started To Use It Regularly In April 2005. First I Had To Replace The Spark Plugs/wires Because Of Water Getting Into Them, And Causing A Miss In The Engine On 4/2005. Then I Had Them Sealed On 9/2005, Then, Replaced On 12/2005 , And The Problem To This Day, Has Never Been Fixed, But I Spent Over $900 Trying. The Transmission And Rear Differential Has Had To Be Replaced 3 Times On 5/2005, 6/2005, And 7/2005. The Muffler Was Replaced In 8/2005, The Battery Died In 10/2005, The Front Brakes Went Out In 11/2005. So Less Than 14,000 Miles From Purchase I Had Spent Over $5ooo In Repairs, And Still Could Not Drive It. I Took The Truck To Bo’s Beuckman ford And Will Never Deal With Them Again. They Over Charged Me For Lousy Work. Also, ford Would Not Pay For The First Faulty Rear Differential Because I Did Not Have ford Install It. Why Would I? They Could Not Fix The Engine Miss After 2 Tries, And Charged Me Both Times, And It Took Them 3 Times To Fix The Transmission. *ak
