Have not had any problems with my truck at all. The F-150 offers the industry-first modular overhead rail system that allows owners to customize interior storage options to suit their individual needs. Good maintenance records from 1st owner. Four-wheel, vented-disc, anti-lock brakes are standard. The gas mileage is around 15-19.
The bold front end conveys strength with quad-circle-styled headlamps, designed in clusters, and incorporates a wrap-around fascia treatment that communicates refined sophistication and precision. Last redesigned for 2004, the F-150 has been tailored for today's pickup buyer who's as likely to use his truck for daily commutes and family errands as he is for serious towing and hauling tasks. With it, occupants may easily snap in additional modules, such as first-aid kits, toolboxes, flashlights and two-way radio holders. A rack- and-pinion steering system — the largest and strongest ever used on a Ford vehicle — was engineered to provide excellent steering response. The truck rides like a caddy with the power of a sports car. Then shortly after was pulling away from a stop light.
An optional overhead console uses interchangeable modules so owners can add whatever features they find most useful. It delivers 300 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 365 pound-feet of torque at 3,750 rpm. A flex-fuel version that can use up to 85 percent ethanol is also available. The technology produces a seamless and consistent engine response, improved fuel economy and enhanced integration of vehicle systems, such as the transmission, variable camshaft timing, vehicle speed control and idle speed control. Lariat buyers can opt for power-folding mirrors with an auto-dimming feature on the driver side. Safety and Security The strong hydroformed front frame rails are built to help manage crash forces.
Carrying passengers in the backseat is still a viable option if you get an extended cab known as a SuperCab , and even regular cabs offer reverse-opening access doors for easy access to the storage area behind the seats. Lariat buyers can opt for power-folding mirrors with an auto-dimming feature on the driver side. Ford has refused to acknowledge they have had any problems. Properly equipped, an F-150 with the 5. It is built in Norfolk, Va.
Buyers have a choice between two- and four-wheel drive on all versions of the F-150; all 4x4 trucks offer shift-on-the-fly convenience and an electronic, push-button transfer case is available on higher-line trims. Following parts just replaced in past week. The bed inside the truck was beat up by dry- wallers, so I put a liner in and it looks new now, and a Toneau cover. The fully boxed frame with hydroformed front rails is the strongest in its class and reduces shake and shudder on rough roads. On the engine side, the 4.
The starter motor went bad. I ordered a new driver side mirror and might order a new front grill because it's missing a couple pieces. Regular and SuperCabs come with reverse-opening rear doors for easier cab access, while SuperCrews have four full-size doors. The instrument panel cluster has gone bad, which I have not had fixed because of the cost. This truck is extremely smooth running at 75mph. If there's a downside to the Ford F-150, it's the truck's lackluster engine offerings.
Without this console, though, the F-150 is a little short on storage space. They made a garbage truck and refused to stand behind it. The suspension reduces unsprung weight to help provide better ride and stability on choppy, broken surfaces. Both upper control arms and upper ball joints. High-line F-150 Lariat models cater to buyers looking for an upscale ambiance with interior features like brushed aluminum and wood highlights, leather upholstery, a power driver seat, automatic climate control and a trip computer. I took it to the dealers for the 2 part spark plug problem of which 3 of the 8 broke off. The V6 gets a standard five-speed manual, with the automatic available as an option.
Another issue is that Ford's pickup truck still uses a four-speed automatic transmission, while most other automakers have switched to five-speed automatics for improved acceleration and fuel economy. Although this line of full-size pickups includes the larger Super Duty trucks and even commercial-use chassis cabs, most consumers end up with the entry-level F-Series truck, the half-ton Ford F-150. The interior is falling apart. Both V8 engines are matched to four-speed automatic transmissions. Plus, the front seats in all F-150s have additional lateral bolstering this year.
I can't believe people have honestly rated it this high I suspect Ford had a hand in this. I'll be looking for a Toyota or Honda next. Luckily I got this used after the spark plug problem. All 8 spark plugs and all new brake pads and oil change. Sense I bought this truck I have had to have the intake manifold replaced it cracked and leaked water all over the engine,shorting out the spark plugs. In an impact, these areas of the frame are designed to collapse in an accordion fashion, dissipating energy before it reaches the passenger compartment. It is comfortable, smooth, and has tremendous amounts of power.
