It's Dependable And Easy To Work On. — There's not that much room in the back for kids to ride in on long trips camping. While pulling a camper I've had to add air bag suspension on it to level the truck out. But it's paid for and easy to work on.

1998 F150 — Well this is the simplest vehicle i own. no blind spots comfortable for two and so versatile that it can be used for anything at all ( except Dinner with the wife ). Needs to be upgraded though to a more creature comfort version like the SVT.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

Like the look and fairly comfortable for (four) adults.

Don't like where muffler comes out the side of truck by door (Stinks like exhaust) when you get in while truck is running.

Good! — The apperance is good and comfortable ride. Nice having back seat and the bed for storage. The V8 motor runs great and gets fairly good gas mileage. The braking system is fairly good, though in the rain it tends to want to hydroplane at times? Its a good truck for what our family uses it for, back and fourth to shop and traveling(fishing) etc...

1998 F150 — Outstanding truck. Lasts forever tons of fun to drive. A little slow at the top end but a tune up is all that's necessary. Fair price for plates. Awesome 4x4 for tons of fun when the road is too boring

Pros

It is an overall great truck and no matter what happens to it, it will always be with me even when the wheels fall off.

Cons

The only draw backs to my truck is the gas milage and some body damage.

My Truck. — my truck is 13 years old and the only problem i have had out of it is a slight coolant leak fixed it 45 minutes. It drives great and sounds great with the straights on it. Performance is pretty good for a small V8 it has great torque and handles pretty good too.

1998 Ford F150 — Great truck I love to drive it. The truck was very well put together, have had no problems. The only thing I have had to do with the truck is change the oil. I am the second owner and I love it.

The Best Trucks In The World - Ford :-) — My truck has over 250,000 miles on it. It still runs and looks great, I would say that repair bills have been less than expected for a vehicle its age. The power and gas mileage have gone down slightly over the years, but that is expected.

Pros

Like full size trucks you will like this one. Plenty of towing power.

Cons

Gas hog.

75

F150 — Fairly dependable truck. A big gas hog! I get only about 12 miles to the gallon. It has a lot of power. It should since it uses so much gas. Pulled a uhaul trailer through the mountains of Colorado and it had no problems. Feel lucky that the previous owner took care of it. The only thing is some rust underneath due to the winters in Colorado. Definitely a truck I would recommend for heavy work.

F150 Flareside. — Great handling and visual appeal. Plenty of power, but the mileage is subpar and the seating is very limited. Overall, it is an excellent vehicle for a single person or a couple, but with children, it would be mostly a secondary vehicle.
