G​ood evening, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Ford technician and would be happy to give you some insight.

​50,000 on an '05 is not bad at all. How does it run? Does the seller have any of the service/maintenance records available?

Im purchasing from a dealership, that’s supposedly consigning the vehicle. It’s seems to run well, but after reading reviews it’s got me a little gun shy
Ford Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 2 months ago

What is that has you holding back? Motor reviews?

Gotcha, that is what makes most people double think the earlier models. The 6.0 is a hit or miss motor, some require a lot of work, while others do just fine and never need much repair, it all depends on previous maintenance as well as driving history usually

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
