At Ziems Ford Corners, it’s no secret that Farmington loves its F-150s. But the news is in, it’s not just New Mexico that loves its Ford trucks. We can officially confirm it. With full-year sales totaling out at 896,526 trucks, the Ford F-Series has once again received the accolade of America’s best-selling pickup for an amazing 43rd year in a row! What’s more, the Built Ford Tough F-series is the best-selling vehicle of any kind in the U.S. for 38 consecutive years. With overall vehicle sales ringing in at 2,310,494 the Ford brand also scored its 10th straight year as the best-selling brand in America. 

What is it That Makes the F-series Stand out Among Trucks?

When an icon gets to a certain age, automakers usually begin to rely on a certain level of nostalgia to help sell them. What images come to mind when you think of the Camaro, Challenger or Mustang? These three modern muscle cars will forever be compared to the legacies of their vintage ancestors. But the Ford F-Series puts all these cars to shame. In fact, for decades now, it has put everything to shame in the sales department. 

Almost since the beginning, the F-Series has been the leader in the truck market. With dependability and reliability under its hood, vintage models still work alongside today’s cutting-edge trucks. There’s no need for nostalgic self-reflection on Ford’s part; the F-Series is just as it always was, and just as it will always be.

Unique Body

Before the F-Series, the vast majority of pickups on America’s roads were car-based, but in 1949 Ford debuted a new pickup line with a unique platform. The new trucks were simple, modern, and forward-thinking with utilitarian styling. From the half-ton F-1 to the three-ton F-8, these trucks were unlike anything else on the road. Add in the fact that Ford offered V8 power under the hood long before its competitors could and Ford was nicely placed to take over the market. 

In 1952 the venerable Flathead V8 was replaced with the more modern Y-Block and the simple F-1, F-2, F-3, etc. designation was dropped for the names we largely know today. The F-1 became the F-100, the F-2 and F-3 were merged into the F-250 and the F-4 became the F-350.

Steel Construction

Through various styling and generational feature updates, including a few years that saw an unfavorable unibody construction the F-series powered on. Then, as it entered its sixth generation in 1973 it reached what was arguably the most important generation in the truck’s history. Ford began a new emphasis on rustproofing and the use of galvanized steel. Thus giving their trucks the ability to work harder longer. In 1975, the F-150 was introduced to replace the F-100, and a year later, it overtook the marketplace as America’s best-selling truck. Then, in 1982 the F-Series became America’s best-selling vehicle. Since then, no other vehicle has outsold it in America.

Motor Trend Truck of The Year

In 1997, the F-Series entered its 10th generation and won Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year. Then, in 2004 and 2005 the 11th generation of F-Series picked up back-to-back wins of Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year. 

In 2015, entering its lucky 13th generation, the F-Series transformed again. Switching its iconic truck to an aluminum body, a first in the pickup segment. The change resulted in the current truck weighing in at 700 pounds lighter than its predecessor, which in turn, dramatically increased the truck’s fuel economy and hauling capacity. 

Time Tested

Today, there are more F-Series trucks on the road with odometer readings above 250,000 miles than any other brand. Reliability and innovation are key attributes in this truck’s longevity at the top. But to millions of Ford owners out there, none of that matters. What matters to them is that their old workhorse is the most important truck to ever wear a Ford badge.

At Ziems Ford Corners, we know Farmington residents are eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring. But in addition to longer days and warmer hours, few things herald the return of spring like potholes. In the Four Corners, the winter season is ready to give way to spring and our roads will once again be affected. 

It only takes one jolt from a pothole to affect a vehicle’s overall handling. Whether you hit it head-on, or you react in time to partially avoid it, an encounter with a pothole can damage your vehicle. Some forms of damage will immediately be apparent, a flat tire for instance. Other times you may not realize any harm was done. But over time, you might start to notice that your vehicle rides a little rougher, or that the handling has become a little sloppier. The initial damage caused by potholes can indeed be significant but unseen damage can lead to long-term problems. Here are some things to be on the lookout for: 

Tires and Wheels

Tires are the first thing to hit a pothole, so it should come as no surprise they could experience deterioration. Even if your tire doesn’t show immediate signs of damage the impact of hitting a pothole can weaken or stretch a tire’s belts and cords. This often leads to uneven wear, tire deterioration and can leave you facing a blowout or flat tire down the road. After a significant encounter with a pothole, take the time to inspect your tires for damage. Run your hand along the sidewall, feeling for bulges. If you find any evidence of bulging tires or bent rims, be sure to have them inspected immediately.

Rims

Since your rims are attached to the tires, they are the second impact location when you hit a pothole. Most modern rims are aluminum, so they can easily be warped. There are a few signs to look for with regard to rim damage. Drivers may experience vibration in the steering wheel or the car may not handle like it normally does. While these can also be symptoms of other issues, it can point to a bent rim. The sure-fire way to know is to do a physical inspection of the rim. A normal rim will appear flush with the tire but a damaged rim will appear visibly bent.

Shocks and Suspension

The shocks and suspension system are responsible for keeping your vehicle stable, absorbing impact and keeping tires on the road. Repeatedly hitting potholes can have a detrimental effect on a vehicle’s suspension system. You may notice that your vehicle doesn’t ride as well as it once did, things like excessive bounce and poor handling over bumps. Jolts caused by potholes can accelerate wear and tear of your suspension while decreasing its performance. Address any suspension issues with your mechanic right away. The longer you put it off, the more risk you face for additional damage the next time you hit a pothole.

Alignment

Pothole damage can take a toll on a car’s alignment. Vehicles without proper alignment won’t drive straight, instead, pulling to the left or right. Alignment problems caused by potholes can lead to potentially unsafe complications. Besides making a vehicle harder to handle, alignment issues can cause vibrations and uneven tire wear. If you notice your vehicle pulling to one side or the other while driving, it’s usually an indication of misalignment. This condition affects passenger safety, contributes to driver fatigue and reduces the lifespan of your tires. If you notice any of these signs, your Ziems Ford Quick Lane technician can help. 

Undercarriage

If the pothole you hit is deep enough, it is possible to bottom out, putting your undercarriage at risk. Hoses and lines can be punctured or torn, resulting in fluid leakage. The same goes for the exhaust system. Since it is located underneath your vehicle, the exhaust system can sustain damage from potholes. If your exhaust system begins to sound different, or you see fluids leaking under your car, have it checked by a mechanic.

What Should You Do?

The first line of pothole defense is defensive driving. Before you make an evasive maneuver, always be aware of traffic around you. Don’t have an accident just to avoid a pothole. If a pothole can’t be avoided, keep your steering wheel straight, reduce speed as much as possible and drive carefully through. Before you hit the road, always make sure you have proper tire inflation. Low tire pressure can cause bulges or blisters on the sidewalls and even dent the wheel. 

Unfortunately, potholes are a fact of life for most of us in the Four Corners. If you think your vehicle may have suffered the wrath of a pothole, call our Quick Lane Service Center today!
