I purchased a used, 2008 F-150 and came from Idaho to pick up the vehicle. The salesperson assured me that this vehicle was in great condition and worth the $20K they were asking for it. When I test drove the pickup, the battery was dead. Then after driving it and pulling into the parking lot, there was a chattering noise. I asked the sales person (Gary F) to have the mechanic check into the idling issue which smoothed out if I rev'd the engine to 1300 RPM. He said he would take care of it. I drove the pickup back to Idaho still having the problem. I took it into a Ford dealership to have it checked out. I was informed that a bearing and pushed into a seal and closed off the ability for the oil to get to the timing chains and rear of the head. Heads were scarred and a new engine was required. This was within the first 5K miles I had it. I called and called to finally get in touch with Gary (the salesmen) who told me he was no longer working there and to get in touch with Ryan Morrison "and he would take good care of me". Ryan didn't return any emails or phone calls. I would take back everything I reported here if someone would just call to say "we're sorry this took place and we'll repay your costs for the new engine which is only $500 because I was smart enough to purchase a warranty. But no one seems to want to call or email me. I will not be going back to this dealership.
