So how do you plan on using your truck sir?
Well, I'm mostly going to drive it 20 minutes down the highway to school/work and back, then park it in my driveway.
Oh, and your only looking at the regular F150 model?
Umm, ya. Why?
Well to be honest, I've sold 5 of these to woman this week, and they really seem to love them. You sure you just want the F150?
Umm, uhh, I think so?
Tell ya what sir. Let me go get the keys to that Raptor edition over there, and we can talk some more about what your needs really are. Sound good?
lol Yep. F150's and Silverados are everywhere.
I've always had a Silverado or Sierra. Growing up on a farm, had to have trucks. Still do now even though I really don't need one. Other than the just ok fuel economy, I don't know if I would ever buy anything other than a truck/suv. The fact that I never have to worry since it can pretty much do and/or get me out of anything is worth it as far as I'm concerned, especially in the winter. I've never bought new, and won't. I never buy the HD or luxury model. I always buy something that clearly has been taken care of and is actually worth it's condition, and it's worked out just fine over the years and ends up cheaper even with the cost of fuel over a new car. My 06 still runs and looks great and has plenty of life in it.
Adding aftermarket goodies to the interior is also quite easy nowadays, and not that expensive, so paying for a new ride just to be able to have some of those electronic options is just a waste of money. General maintenance, and general repairs aren't difficult or costly either. If teens/adults spent a little more time learning about vehicle basics, it would make their lives so much easier and would save them a tonne of money. I can understand the new vehicle thing as a teen though. If I had or could get the money, I would have been tempted to buy new back then, just for status. Thankfully, that wasn't the case, and I'm happy it wasn't.
