I'm Back!

Well , just couldnt take it anymore..

Got out of an 09 F150 Fx4 with the 5.4 due to near pathetic fuel economy.
got into a 2013 Focus ST ( F'N awesome car) But being 6'2 and 260 LBS it was tight..( didn't start out that way..lol)
Traded the focus in march of this year for a 2015 fusion titanium, 2.0 AWD with 19's and all the bells and whistles.
Nice car, really is , but thats just it- it's just a car. Being a guy who always likes to be wrenching on something it got boring pretty fast.

So I have been looking for a few months and at a couple differnt dealers, and the majority were low-balling me on th fusion trade ( i knew I was going to take a loss, But jesus christ, some of these dealers are straight-up asshole's)
Went to northway in brantford ( ontario)the other day an they offered me 2k above what anyone else has- and it was on.

due to the loss being re-financed into the new loan, an lariat was out of the question- But overall I'm happy.
2015 f150 XLT sport S/C- Silver ingot metallic ( really sharp colour!)
20" wheels, Nav, 302a package, 5.0L, and a few other addded options.
I wanted the 3.5 eco, but they offered this at 10k below sticker, with the trade they gave me I couldnt say no.
They also threw in front and rear weather-tech's as well as tint!

F"N PUMPED!

On a side note, I talked my 21 year old brother into buying a 2015 F150 4 months ago ( He works at the same place I do) and have hated him ever since..lol and since then 3 other new 2105 f150's have been added to the parking lot.. have succesfully convered most of my workplace to ford's - i should get some sort of prize for this?..lol

I wouldn't be too upset about the 5.0, it's a great engine, and probably better mileage than an EB anyway. lol

(Sorry, can't resist giving the EB guys a jab, especially when their posted real world mileage isn't much different than mine.)

Good deal with the tint and Weathertech's thrown in, congrats and welcome back!

Congrats on the 15. They are great Trucks.

I have had mine for just about 11 month now. Truck is awesome and the 5.0 ROCKS.

Congrats on the new ride.

You'd think that the dealer where you bought the Fusion (& possibly the Focus) would have been the one to give you best trade-in value...their loss.

Yes, i was always satisfied with my local dealer, but to be honest I never shopped around. This time around I had about 10 dealers quote me and northway was by far the best. Bought the truck home last night- From Brantford to woodstock with the cruise set at 118 i was seeing 11.2/l100km . Very good considering it has no Km on it and to Tonnaeu cover. Its so F'n nice to be back in a truck! The weathertech's are amazing, and the tint matched perfectly. heading to london today for work , And cant wait to drive it..lol
My buddy and I went to wack wing's last night- He has just bought a 2015 Tundra the "1768 edition" or whatever it is. although mine does not have leather, When he parked beside me and got out to compare you could see the look of regret in his face..lol . Althought they share some similarities, the F150 is by far the better looking truck- and oh yeah, the 110v front and back plugs and the factory box light, and the tailgate step are not available in the tundra- He was impressed to say the least!

The Tundra's "face" is certainly an acquired taste unlike the handsome F150.
