Are Ford F-150s reliable and trustworthy?
No more and no less than all of the other available trucks on the road.
Chevys are better
Well they are the greatest selling pickup of all time. That being said there are millions of parts floating around, & they're easy to work on. It does what it was designed for & has been a great work truck over a lot of years
If you buy a ford keep an extra starter and alternator in the cab and the tools to change them, you will use them
It depends upon how the previous owner maintained it.
I've had 150's, 250's and 350's all of my life and wouldn't drive anything else. I've had nothing but good luck with them. Some of my trucks had over 250,000 miles on them.
Most of American cars aren't reliable. Cars from other countries are better and reliable
