We service several of these in the shop I'm currently at. They eat tires, and even with a decent alignment can't seem to keep tires on them for very long. Funky vehicles, very functional, some shortcomings and poor build quality in some areas.

This probably belongs in the CL thread, but I figured anyone looking for a tow rig would be following this one.

This thing popped up on another forum this morning and is a pretty good deal if you're in the SW and looking... price would probably be double if it were a truck. Not mine, and no affiliation.

Yeah that whole vehicle just creeps me out. I can't put my finger on it exactly, but overall it just seems wrong.

Thanks for the heads up. It started off funky immediately when the tow package installed from the factory came with no brake controller and a ground issue on the 7-pin...

"Funky, functional, some shortcomings and poor build quality in some areas" describes every Ford I've owned hah
