You can get a good used small truck for under $10,000. Just get it checked by a real mahecnic first to be sure it's ok. Something like a Ford Ranger or Chevy Colorado. Good luck.

Do you drive a 2005 FORD F-250?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.

Tell us what you think.
