      I work at a local water/sewer district and we have mostly Ford trucks 350/450's and a few Rangers, and a few GM trucks. We have two on-call trucks that crew guys take home one 5.0L 2014 f150 and...

      I know Ford and Mazda have parted ways but what about the transmission in the Mazda 2 ( I think its a conventional "skyactive" or whatever ridiculous term they use. I imagine it's a similar platform...

      They are not that durable, and over complicated components that could be simplified are not engineering prowess IMO. I'll throw in longevity as well. People buy Japanese because they know they can...
