Ford Vans vs Chevy Vans: Round 2

Car Maintenance

0  comments

So the debate about which van is better just took another turn, in Chevy’s favour.

Had a 2007 Ford E150 van in the shop today for a maintenance service and front brakes.

While doing a routine “shaking of the wheels,” I found excessive play coming from the front right wheel: the culprit, a loose upper ball joint. Ball joints commonly wear out on these Fords, often at very low mileages. This van has about 50,000 kilometers on it: not old by any means.

Sure Chevy ball joints wear out, just not this soon. So there¹s a plus for the Chev Van!
