Hi everyone,
I went to the dealer and I found out that I was not the only lucky one. In a nut
shell, they gave me $5 and asked me what kind of vehicle I drive, year, model, payment,
how much left on it, etc. Then I asked what about the %. 9 and he said you can get
any Ford vehicle with %.9 and we will take your trade. Then when we got to the paper
work, he told me that I couldn't get the full size trucks with the %. 9. I said it
didn't say anything about that in the paper. He said, that this is the deal. So I got
really upset and walked a way.

I really think it was a scam, Now I'm really upset, so I'll do all I could to post
this letter I got so you guys will see it.

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Roof

Only places are in the two channels that run from the rear of the cab to the front, not smooth
finish but textured. Speaking of roofs, I haven't seen a pickup that had a roof without some
light scratches or scuff marks. It's almost as if during manufacture the roof of the truck is used
by the workers as a work bench to place objects on (tools, clip-boards, accessories). Just
an observation.

This is false advertising IMHO. The guy just got done saying
you could choose from any Ford vehicle and get the %.9 financing.

Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Rubbing noise

Thanks to everyone who has offered suggestions. The truck is a 4x2, so
there are no front leaf springs. The noise comes from the front right wheel
well and only occurs on hard left turns. I think it's the tire rubbing on
the frame member. I'll confirm that this weekend. If that is the case, I
guess I'll just spray some silicon lubricant on the inside wall of the tire
to reduce wear and tell my wife to ease off a little when making lefts. I
can have the tie rods adjusted when I go in for my 5000-mile service.

Same thing on my new truck.

Do these "prep guys" have instructions for each vehicle type as to what
to prep or check for?

After they installed a Ford bug deflector it was almost impossible to close
my hood - really took a hard slam. Upon inspection in my garage I found
the problem: they had left the original hood gasket in place and mounted on
top of it the Ford bug deflector which has its own gasket. The combined
thickness of all put the hood latch out of reach unless they were compressed
by a really hard slam. Fortunately, the hood latch is adjustable, so I
loosened
the two 5/16" bolts and moved it up until I got the latch to grab. The
correct
fix,
I believe, would have been to remove the original hood gasket to begin with.

You would think the "prep guys" would have know to do this.

The Ford splash guards were no different. The front guards have a bottom
mounting hole flange molded into the plastic, that is meant to attach to the
underside
of the rocker panel just in front of the cab step. It re-uses a plastic
"xmas
tree"
type fastener already in place. Well, these were left un-attached. I had to
go
back and have the body shop guy attach them. And he commented to me that
he had just done the same for another truck. (I had him use new fasteners.)

Sorry to complain so much,

Charles.

I have a '99 F250SD 4x2 and when I first got the truck it had an unusual
metallic rubbing noise when making a right-hand turn. It was the left front
brake dust shield rubbing against the wheel. The clearance is very tight.
I reached under and pulled the shield away about 1/8 inch and it hasn't
happened again.

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - RE: transmission question

Hi Bud,

I know a little about the Dodge tow ratings. I believe I remember that you
have a PSD truck? So you were probably looking at the diesel tow ratings? If
so, here's the deal on the diesel ratings. Dodge offers a derated engine with
the automatic, 215 hp & 420 lb/ft vs. 235 hp & 460 lb/ft for the manual,
hence the lower rating for the auto, also, the 4.10 axle ratio is rated to
tow more weight than the 3.54 with the auto.

Heavy duty transmissions in the Dodges? ah...uh...not really. The NV 4500
(five speed) manual is OK, but they continue to have problems with the fifth
gear nut falling off, not a big deal, but an annoying two hour repair that
doesn't really solve the problem, it may well recur. The new NV5600 (six
speed) is finally out after a 16 month delay (yes really, I saw two of them
in Wabash, In. when I was broken down there last week, had lots of troubles
lately, all tranny related) the NV5600 is much beefier, larger and heavier
than the NV4500, it may be a good trans, too early to tell. Despite the
beefier trans, rated for 550 lb/ft, Dodge is NOT offering a more powerful
Cummins with the NV5600. Automatic transmissions in the Dodge? Gee I wish I
had a 4L80E in my truck, or failing in that, a 4R100.

Dodge trucks like a Big Rig? snicker, laugh, guffaw. After a short period of
using mine as a hot-shot rig, I'll say this, never again with a pickup truck,
anybody's' pickup, despite tow ratings that indicate they will work as hard
as a Freightliner FL50, the pickups just aren't suited for that duty. I given
up on the F-450 and F-550 as well, too much like a pickup and overpriced (as
are all the 1 tons when

Here's a rumor for you (Despite years of unsubstantiated rumors, this one is
strong and credible, or else I wouldn't help spread it), Allison has
developed a new line of transmissions, the 1000, 2000 and 2400 series, one of
them is rated for GVW's of about 19,000 lbs. and has a parking sprag, may be
a five or six speed, just right for a 1 ton, gee...which one of the big three
has a known big problem with autos, particularly with diesels? Rumor has it
that it will begin shipping in time for the 2000 model year, if Chrysler does
this like they do everything else, that should translate into about a 2002
release date.

Robert

yeah if you've ever noticed Dodge ad's, often times they'll offer huge
rebates on stuff and then in fine print it'll say something like 'this offer
does not apply to quad cab pickups'. In other words, their hottest selling
item is not included in the deal because they know the vehicles are selling
themselves. I did the same thing, walked out and now I'm pretty happy I
did, with a little more research and some checking, found out I really
wanted the 'more options' Ford SuperDuty anyway...

Why do some people worry about the things they

I used to own and run a high end stereo store..
and amplifiers will amplify the noise and static as well...
I would get a CD player and forget about fm enitrely.


baring that, SONY uses a diversity antenna on some of thier high end units
that uses two antennas on your car... the factory one and a second unit
mounter somewhere on the opposite end of the vehicle... it uses the
strongest of the two signals, and in weak station situation it will
interpolate lost data and works real good. I had that with my mobile ES
system a few years ago.

This one really "bugs" me (sorry). Who, in their right mind, would believe
that a car/truck computer knows what day it is???? Put me down for a very
strong #1.

By the way, my credentials: I am a mechanical engineer with 15 years
experience in the auto industry, plus a strong grasp of electrical and
computer fundamentals. I might be a #3 regarding the power grid and
airline travel, but motor vehicles... no way. They just simply don't know
what day it is, period. Want proof? The last time your battery died, did
you have to reset a day/time function on your car/truck?

I'd love to hear some rational (yeah right) debate from any #4's out there!

The last time I asked by 97 F150 what day it was, it had no idea it will

I would also expect that a lot of folks will make a lot of money off of the

6201 S. Pierce
Littleton, CO 80123
