Drove a new Fpos150 today

Postby Jasen [OP] » July 8th 2010, 11:25pm

Rented a F150 from U haul today.
Loaded my gang box in it and all the tools out of the van plus another 150 lbs worth.
That P/U road like a box of rocks empty, no better with a decent load.
The seat is to low, I can see over the hood of my Eclipse better. Banged my knuckles on the door pocket and nearly tore off a hang nail on the side of the seat rolling the window down. I think the steering ratio is 12:1 and the steering doesn't return when your coming out of a corner, you have to steer out of the corner. The mirrors are to far back and you have to really turn your head to see them.
I think one of the hamsters under the hood died. I hammered the throttle (nothing in the truck but me) to get into traffic from 35 MPH, lite a smoke had couple beers waiting for something to happen. My Astro loaded with all my tools flat hauls butt compared to that thing empty.
If someone gave me an F150, I couldn't get to the nearest Chevy dealer quick enough to trade it in.

And whats with the fastcap gas cap. It's got some kind of no gas cap system. Any snot nose kid could pour something in the tank without having to remove a gas cap.

I couldn't agree more.
I had 2 of these POS trucks at work for a front end overhaul.
The '05 needed 2 new lower balljoints and a new right front wheel bearing the '06 the same except it needed a new left front wheel bearing.
Time came to do a test drive but even the cyclists passed me with ease! :screaming:

Ummmm



Nope :lol:


I snapped up a 89 Ranger cheap when my Toyota P'U died while I was looking for the Astro.
The only good thing I have to say about it is, it drove me to the lot where I bought my Astro, and I sold it for what I paid for it 3 months earlier.

I once rented an '06 F150 4x4. The nicest thing about it was when I went to the repair shop to load all of my tools and equipment back into my G-Series after it was fixed.

I don't think the 150s are all that bad, I like the square cabs myself. I think Rangers are pretty good little work trucks but I'd rather have an s10

The old ones were good. I'd even own a 70's 3/4 ton Furd.
That new one was like driving a bath tub, not the clear sight line I expect from a truck.
Now I drove a 07 Silverado a few years ago, nice truck, also drove a 01 Durango, not a bad truck.

I honestly did not know that Chevy would take a lower quality vehicle as a trade in. Hmmmm. Learn something new every day.

I had a '79 F-150. Loved it even though it was beat to hell and back (worse after I got hold of it). The engine motor mounts was 2 pieces of chain going over the top of the engine and bolted to the frame. The driveshaft was home made to fit the new engine tranny and rear end setup (it was a 351-2v, iirc. Not sure why the nrmal shaft wouldn't fit).

That was in '87, from what I hear, it's still driving around Michigan like that

But I won't give up Chevy for anything. I do like my wife's '94 Mercury Grand Marquis, but it's not a truck/van.

I noticed that everyone is slamming the new Furds and praising the old ones. It's all because they went from being trucks to overpriced living rooms on wheels. They need to sell inexpensive real trucks to the people that need them, trucks that can work hard. I'm sure Chevy & Dodge have gone down the same road, removing the truck and adding fluff. I just won't knock Chevy :chevy: .

That being said, I love my '91 Astro. Told my wife she can get the newer vehicles, mine will be older ones.

PERFECT! Couldnt have said it better! You start slamming all those bells and whistles onto a truck, or car for that matter, and its just one more electronic thing to go wrong. Keep it simple and they run and run and run. I have never had any major issues with any of my Astros, they were all cargos too....just one bell and no whistles! And its not just Fords either.

Not even a horn? Better get a Turfblaster installed, bells belong on tricycles!

Yeah, I like the KISS method, keeping it simple makes it reliable and fixable. Computers are good for the internet, not in a car. Power seats? Only I drive my van, once the seat is set, why does it need to be moved? Heated seats? That'll fry the little guys, no thanks. Ok, power windows are ok, but they've been around for decades, so somewhat reliable, and nice not having to reach across to turn on the air conditioning (2/50 air, if ya kno what I mean).

Dang, I'm getting old and grumpy. Better stop now before I start saying "when I was your age..."

They need to sell inexpensive real trucks to the people that need them, trucks that can work hard. I'm sure Chevy & Dodge have gone down the same road, removing the truck and adding fluff. I just won't knock Chevy :chevy: .

That being said, I love my '91 Astro. Told my wife she can get the newer vehicles, mine will be older ones.

Its the same over here in the uk, the new fords are complete crap compared to 1990 back, thing that always boggled my mind was how you can have more BHP/TQ in the newer cars and there still slower than the old ones,guess its all the crap they add though, aircon, sideimpact bars crumple zones etc etc.

Il keep my legs as crumple zones just gimme my speed back :screaming:
