I whole heartedly agree. Tundra's speak to me all the time. Not sure why the voice sounds like a mouse though...quite odd...

My new tow vehicle gets better mileage than all the Fords, Dodges and Chevys and eliminates having to stop at rest areas. So, as my grandpappy said "put that in your pipe and smoke it!"

Would it be a 4th wheel hitch on that one?

Nice to have a little fun on here from time to time. I've been a Mopar man since 1950. (family owned a dealership) Have owned and raced a many of them. You just can't beat a Hemi, unless it's a turbo cahrged Cummings. Tundra is what a Hemi drives over, without much resistance I might add. Anyway you discuss it they are way better than my older 77 Dodge Power Wagon, even though it would almost climb a tree. As long as it pulls my trailer I'm happy.

The engine in my dad's '38 is out of an old Power Wagon. The ol' 360 has had a bit of work done to her before installing though, lol. 375bhp on 87 octane with a Holley 750 and .015" overbore. Beast of an engine.

I had a Chevy truck, but I grew up and bought a Ford. :-) I'm not partial though, in fact I have a Dodge Caliber, a Chevy Equinox, and my F350 in the driveway right now. And as to the comment about chipping an Eco... Magnesun Moss probably wouldn't apply to chips like it does to oil and filters, and Ford could easily have an argument that a ring could fail if the blowoff on the turbo was overridden to allow more boost. Either way, I wouldn't want the hassle, the lawyers needed to fight it, and having my truck down and not be able to go camping.

For a more thorough discussion of this law known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, see ourVehicle Warranty Section of our Air Filter Facts page, and our Letter Regarding Vehicle Warranty and K&N Replacement Filters.

Since I had to pay for my maintenance agreement for 5 years that makes it not free.
A tranny warranty cannot be cancelled because I put on a different exhaust either since it has nothing concerning the operation of the transmission. a Chip would not effect a defective ring int eh engine block and therefore if there was a malfunction in that area Ford (Dodge and all aother) have to prove that the mod done directly caused the part failure in order to negate responsibility

Dodge Don't over do Good Excuses
Your definition of FORD is not correct - It really stands for FixOrRepairDaily.
