      @cristian dl cruz My Tundra is probably the best truck I ever had. It has the 4.6 and if I keep my foot out of it, I get about17 mpg.

      Hey scotty, is it worth $4800 for a 2004 Dodge Stratus R/T with 36k miles or a 2002 Ford Taurus SE withh 22k miles for 4k? Or is it just going to be an endless money pit? Thanks Scotty love the channel!

    Pound for pound, dollar for dollar Fords Triton motor doesn't stand a chance to Chevys 350. I can go Ford or Chevy, I'm actually a fan of both but will Not drive a Dodge!! Ford really needs to reengineer the Winsdor and bring it back!!

          Those f150s with the 5.4L 3v were plagued with Cam phaser issues . It is a very well known issue in the f150 community.. other than that it is a great truck

                200k on 02 Silverado, never an issue.....ever.......with tranny. Pretty much everything else Scotty said about the F150 I can say about my Silverado. Not saying the Silverado is better but it's right on par. Not to mention, easy to do regular maintenance and parts are dirt cheap. Don't know about modern Silverados but the ol' Chevy 350 is about the most reliable, upgradable, repairable and affordable engine ever made.

                    I like Fords myself. I wish they were still made with manual transmissions.

                    If so, I would definitely buy one.

                        Scotty, I bought a brand new 2019 Ford F150 Platinum with a 3.5 ecoboost. It was great for ONE DAY, then it started to miss. I took it back and they said the ambient air temp sensor was loose. I took it back home and it started again after 9 miles. i called them and dropped off the truck about a week later. I took them for a test drive and pointed out the miss. Kick in the turbos and it really missed. They agreed and gave me a rental. The rental did it too. So they call me and ask me to pick up the truck. The service manager meets me with a red face and says "we can't fix it". They then tell me that Ford has a problem that they can't fix. They won't admit it but they have a major problem. Then the service manager tells me "that's why every mechanic here drives a Ram". I asked about the Coyote V8. Response: "Don't do it, after a while they sound like the engines are falling apart and Ford says it's acceptable". The sales manager then helped me buy a Ram. I traded in the Ford and got a Ram with a Hemi V8. I loved that F150 but the engine is garbage.

                          My 2001 chevy went 375000 before a blown trans cooler line cost me 3rd and 4th gear clutches. I still drive it today and 4.8l that I put a 20ft trailer with my 5600lbs tractor. Oh that 10 speed is a gm transmission lol

                                        My 5.4l triton has been crap. Have put thousands into the motor. Notorious cam phaser issues/ coil packs.

                                          I believe Scotty forgot to mention the spark plugs the break, the exhaust manifolds that leak, and the cam phasers on those 5.4’s. And I don’t think Ford is always improving they seem to make the same stupid mistakes over and over again. The Timing chain driven water pump on a 3.5 and 3.7 is just one example. Not even worth talking about the diesels

                                            I don't think you'll find any large Toyota consumer trucks in Japan. Those are primarily for the NA market.

                                              The 3v cam phaser issues ate such a huge problem I've avoided these trucks like a plague. It's such an expensive repair, it makes these not worth it.

                                                          From Russia with love, but with a bit of wondering why you keep saying that Rams are awful, especially when they're not new.
                                                          We don't have any official dealers of full size pickups. But we have alot of fans\owners of them and mainly used once from EU\USA. Mainly Ram 1500 (mainly 4th gen, less 3rd, and few of 5th), little less of F150, and Tundras.
                                                          We have decent Dodge Ram club. And even services who are specialized on them, they know everything about Rams and F's (weak spots, regular issues and so on). And at least half of owners have 100k+ miles. I have 4th gen 1500 5.7 hemi regular cab, ~110k miles. I never heard that F150 much better, more reilabel and with less issues than Rams.

Can’t wait to check out the new mustang EV crossover and the new wait for it, 400HP and 420lbft torque in a turbo v6 navigator! How long do these turbo engines last btw? What about the batteries in an EV? They key differentiator is the fault tolerant and secure embedded systems btw in the new smart connected cars.

Telling me a ford is better knowing I'm going to need a new transmission after 200,000 miles isn't better. Toyota go 500,000 miles all day long and don't require anything major to be changed.
