    got my truck inspected yesterday .,and on the rack (lift bay ) in the garage was a 2005 f-250 auto tranny.... getting new tranny lines put on. truck only had 15,000 miles on it looked clean.. but the lines bit the big one. so i guess not only the oil pan we need to worry about it's almost everything under the body we need to be washing.just thought give ya heads up on this one..why not stainless lines on something like that..wow it's a 2005 almost 3 years old, who would think.. yes this was and still is a plow truck.and salt ..still you can never keep them too clean.

    I drive an E-350 ambulance at work with 20 K on it. The truck already had the heat blower fan go out. One of the rotors on the brakes is warped. It has a rear end noise when it's in a left hand curve. The window button on the drivers door is starting to fail. You would not think a new truck would have this many issues so quickly.
