Overall I Like The Truck But Its Costing A Lot Of Money. However I Did Get It Used. — I like my truck but the motor it has in it is known to leak oil out of the passenger head gasket. I just fixed mine. I got my truck out of the woods. It was stripped pretty good and the windows were busted out. I'm getting it back to normal. One day it will be the way it should be. It's costing quite a bit of money. however I'm fixing it myself so I'm saving a lot of money.

Solid engine, smooth ride, gas mileage not bad for a truck

Excellent, Reliable Truck — Always started, smooth ride, got about 17 mpg in town if I drove it gently. Never had a leak or knock. Passenger window would stick using driver control, but worked fine on the passenger side. I just had to push extra hard on the button on the drivers side and it still worked fine. Radio occasionally would turn up really loud on its own. Figured out if I just hit the mute, then hit it again, it stopped it. Not sure what's up with that. Love the 4 door model instead of the 3 with the extended cab. This one didn't have much rust, but Fords are notorious for rusting out everywhere. Ran like a top and easy to work on yourself, which was my favorite part), although I ended up not needing to. Sold my last 1998 Ford F150 XLT with 367,000 miles on it and never had a stitch of trouble with that engine either. Bought the 2001 and no trouble with that one. Wanted to replace with a Ford F150 XLT 4WD but couldn't find any so I settled for a Chevy ;-(.

Good Truck — This is a truck that doesn't try to be anything that it isn't, it has decent power for a V6, and can haul people and cargo well. No unnecessary equipment, and handles like a luxury car. If you need a truck that works hard and isn't flashy or overpowered, this is a good option. Good truck overall especially for work.

Great Work Vehicle With Plenty Of Power And Stylish Look. — This truck is solid and very dependable. I have not have any problems w/ the truck and I have ~148K miles on it. It has a fairly new bed liner. The dealer service is great and the maintenance costs are very reasonable. This truck has very good build quality and has very good performance. I would highly recommend this truck to anyone.

Reliable, Powerfull Truck. — I really loved this truck, and even though it was a V8 it was actually not that bad on gas. it was powerful and it had great acceleration I really have nothing bad to say about this truck, if gas prices go down again by some miracle, I will buy another one.

Pros

its a great standard work truck but unless you have a truck box its not good as an everyday use vehicle due to limited space unless you get a 4/6 seater

Cons

as I said about limited space DONT GO MUDDING UNLESS YOU HAVE MONEY

Love It Its A Powerful And Strong But Useful Vehicle — I loved the car in general it worked for cities and country because it wasn't a huge truck but it was big enough and strong enough to kick up the speed or haul a lot of stuff in the bed seats keep your back extremely straight due to very limited reclining from no space but it was ok gas mileage sucked for a 1500 version pick up was great in sense of blind spots and maneuverability repairs weren't bad till I went mudding acceleration was fast braking was ok normal for a truck and I felt safe cause I was bigger and higher then everyone else.

Ford F150 - Well Built And Long Lasting Work Truck — I have 10 F150 XL V6 models from years 1998-2004 with mileage ranging from 100k - 275k. I have gotten to know the trucks very well. They are reliable and well built. The problems that have been common to them all is the ball joints, sway bar bushing, intake manifold gaskets leaking(keeps engine light on) and the odometer read out randomly goes on and off. Other than that the regular maintenance is fairly low cost. I've never lost and engine, transmission or rear end. I continue to purchase the same make/model of F150 because I have not found a better alternative for the quality and price. I would recommend the Ford F150 XL V6 to anyone looking for a reliable light duty truck.

Pros

Great ride for being low profile, as well as lowered. Amazing pick up power for being stock, other than the intake. It stands out from every vehicle around town, and I've always wanted one for years. It has every option, except the sun roof, and it has a multy thousand dollar competition series sound system, and a PlayStation 2 custom mounted in the back center consule.

Cons

You hear every single rattle going down the road, and things have been shaken loose from all of the bass the sound system has.

Sunken Harley — I really enjoy the whole truck. There is nothing done to it that I would do differently, other than the headlights. I will be fixing up what little imperfections it has, and it will be my show truck. It is a real head turner!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
