They've all gotten so absurdly large.....glad Maverick is bringing back a dose of reality. Granted, some require that size of a truck - but a large number do not, however "bigger is better" sells. Have no need for that size of a truck, nor do I have the want for it. Most of my trucks have been small trucks....and now have had a pretty much bulletproof Silverado for the last 15 years - but was so ready to get back to a smaller truck. Timing was perfect for Maverick as I was considering a small SUV (ie Bronco Sport) - Maverick was just right.The size comparison photos always make me laugh.
The F-250 is absurd how large it is. The Mav roof is barely above the bed sides. Hahaha.
That would be illegal for a factory warranty, yes absolutely. But not this lifetime warranty. Like any "service contracts", it has far more conditions than a manufacturer's new car warranty. One of these is that it must be serviced by them and at their schedule. I assume that is because they will be replacing the engine or transmission on their dime should they fail while under this "warranty".That is illegal. As long as you have it service per the recommended intervals they must honor warranty.
The F250 is a great work truck designed for many such purposes. It is great to tow large RVs, construction equipment, etc. It does this very well. It's ride and comfort is such that it can also be used as a daily driver so you see a lot of them on the road. Yes it is very much larger than the Maverick for good reason. That doesn't change the Maverick fills a niche for a small pickup with great looks that will be good for many personal uses.To add -- how's this for a stark size and scale difference!
I saw my 1st Maverick in person Saturday and I must say it's quite impressive. It's what a small truck should be. I'm only 5'9" but it has lots of room both front and back. I'm also 76 and it's very easy to get in and out of. It's harder for me to sit way down and then try to get back up again. In the past I've had a Ford Courier, a small Datsun truck, a small Toyota truck, and I must say the Maverick is not "small" in any sense, except up next to the gargantuan regular trucks they have today!My first reaction seeing one in person was how small it seemed, but really when getting in and around it it felt roomy.
Those warranties are a joke, there are so many loop holes that they use to "not cover" things. Don't be fooled by that crap.Not meaning to hijack this post, but looking at the sign behind those trucks, how come most major dealerships don't do a Lifetime Limited Warranty? I keep my vehicles up to date on all services, is there a catch?
