Just some guy

Postby Spoone - November 14th, 2020, 4:27 pm

Hi all..
I'm new round here, though not new to Ford vehicles. (Wife's ride is an 06 Explorer XLT, and my previous was an 03 Ranger Edge with the Vulcan V-6..)

Anyway...lets see....Oh yeah! :thumb:

So, I just picked an '09 XLT with ALL the bells and whistles (seriously...Sync is kinda sweet, and my 6 year old loves playin' with it). It's packing the wee 2.5 4 banger, but it seems to move right along, so I don't have any complaints. After all, the purpose of this rig is to get me and the family out to outdoor stuff, like snowboarding, mt biking, or just out and about. Does that just fine, too :shades:

Being an 09, there *are* a few flaws.

The drivers seat bolster foam is packed out, so I slip round a bit on the drive. The fuel filler thingie...wtf, seriously. I want a proper gas cap. Any chance that it can be retro-fitted? And...the serpentine belt idler or tensioner pulley whistles. That's it.

**Edited to add**
It's at 162K on the odometer, so there's no warranty on this beasty anymore. Any work is all on me.

Hi all. Nice ta meetcha.
