    Default No More Fords- New in PA

    Hello all. After four Ford Truck in a row I just bought a Chevy.
    Had a nice 2000 Ford F150 4X4 STD cab long bed with a 4.6L v-8 auto. The Mrs. & the dog didn't like the standard cab or the height off the ground. Hated the lack of power and the 13 to 15 mpg too. (not to mention a $1600 trans job. $400 to repair the exhaust manifolds and studs and two starters in the 26K I owned it) Traded the Ford in on my 2002 Silverado Extended cab LS 2 wheel drive. Indigo Blue. 4.8L V-8 auto. 85K on it, pretty clean. Drives great! 17.8 MPG on first tank of gas. Only cracked 17MPG twice in four years with the Ford.

    "the nice thing about a ford is its easy to work on, the bad thing is your always working on it."

    he also said

    "a chevy is just easy to work on"
