Truck Month, I hate Truck Month!

It's that time of the year again in Texas, it's Truck Month. Not the fake Chevy Truck Month but the real Ford Truck Month with its stampede of savings. Truck Month actually seems to cover the last part of February and all of March, they must have had those accountants at Anderson work that one out.

I used to own a truck, but I still hate Truck Month. Constant repetition of the advertisment and its stampede of savings just drives me batty. The stampede really is illustrated in the TV ad by a line for Ford trucks racing towards the camera.

Also, while I'm ranting ,I don't like those ads that illustrate how tough a truck is by having it turn a perfectly reasonable piece of grassland into a muddy mess by driving over it and skidding round and round. And furthermore... (that's enough for now, time for medication)

I simply despise all modern fords. i like the ones from 1900 to 1940/50 and thats it. The rest are crap-heaps. In my opinion FORD stands for Fuel Oil Repair Daily or Ferral Obnoxious Rotten Drivers or First On Rubbish Dump or Found on Rats Driveway Posted by: MattyDienhoff on January 10, 2004 06:03 PM

I hate everything about fords and their quiet steel! THEY EVEN SHOWED THAT YOU CANT HEAR A FIRETRUCK FROM THE INSIDE! Seems like they want to make people crash so they have to buy another ford! Quiet steel should be outlawed! Posted by: Zane on August 23, 2004 09:50 PM

I've had a Ford for years, it well over 100,000 miles and never had a problem. Posted by: me on January 10, 2007 03:18 PM
Gee, and I thought I was alone out here. I just bought a 2007 F350 King Ranch Dually (14 November, 2006). The first day I got it, the entire instrument cluster died. They ordered a new one and installed it. Then, the idler pully on the front of the engine siezed and smoked the serpentine belt. They know about this problem, but alas NO RECALL. Then the turbine started making a LOUD SQUEAL. Amazingly they can't find the problem. The tires bounced so bad that at 30-34 mph you better not have a cup of coffee or it would be all over the truck (I showed them that I have to keep a towel under the cup holder just to catch spills). They said that under pressure did this. Now at 50mph, the howl is so loud you can't talk or hear the radio. Oh yeah, the CD player will intermitteltly reset to track "0" and freeze up. They say that they will look into that. They were also supposed to install a Rhino liner in the bed. Well, they have had it for the past "3" weeks, and still no bed liner. Gee, I love to make payments on a BRAND NEW FORD that has been in the shop for 1/2 of the time that I have owned it, and oh yes, I still get to make the payments on it. Am I alone out there?

To Shiner Boch: There is a Ford recall on your cruise control problem. All they need is your VIN and they will fix it at no charge to you. Posted by: Steve on January 31, 2007 01:28 PM
Can I say I love my Titan? Awesome, tough, reliable truck. Nissan did a great job with it. I felt like a bit of a traitor buying an import. But, I've owned FORD. No need to explain why I jumped ship. And I owned a Chevy. Granted it was a certified lemon. But, I was not risking that again. So I reluctantly tried the Nissan. I was so impressed, I bought it right there. Would love to hear your thoughts on the Titan. I love mine. Posted by: Ronn Pearson on February 20, 2007 11:28 AM
