Really Good Looking — this is a good truck. i enjoy it and so does my family. i have pulled everything i needed to. i like the heated seats and the sunroof. the gas milage is only like 24 miles a gal. i wish it had a back up camera. i insalled a hard lid on the bed and have mixed feelings. it ok for travel but if i go to lumber yard its difficult to haul long lumber because i used to have a tool box they would slide under.

Dependable, tough, best P/U on the market for a reason.

Cons

No agility; mileage tepid, at best; few creature comforts.

233,000 Miles Plus And Still Strong. Nuff Said. — I can personally attest to the various positives that make the F-150 the best-selling pickup on the market for lo these many years. This thing does it all, from hauling to heavy weather, and looks pretty good doing it.

It's Great! Buy A Ford! — I really like this truck. It has great handling and I don't have to worry about it giving out on me. I am so glad that I found this truck. I wouldn't have anything else. I love it. If you ever buy anything make sure that it is indeed a ford.

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

Pros

Strong troublefree engine, cold start up, comfortable, heat/ac awesome, quiet interior, lotsa leg room for leggy family, looks sharp, handles very easily on turns, higher speeds and stop and go traffic, mpg costs better than fair for a truck & beats our Marquis,

Cons

Left view for passing clearance blind spot (cab frame), step side steps small, caution on outside body trim (noted trouble areas by dealer on warranty maintenance appts) easy fix tho, minor to even note but that's all I got for cons!

Rob's F-150 — Great Ride, this was the first truck that Ford revised after years, the 2004 Model Lariat Crew Cab 2x4 the most room in it's class. I have done a few modifications, but just for cosmetic reasons, and performance. Overall a great vehicle!

Love It! — You can't argue with the history and reputation of the F-Series trucks by Ford. I love the way the Fords look and I love they way they drive. My truck is easy to handle, has good power, and rides extremely smooth.

Reliable Truck — Good value truck for work or home. Rides high so you get a good view of things around you. Mileage is what you would expect from a full size truck. Only problem i have had with the truck is that the both power window motors went out and had to be replaced

Very Impresive Drive,i Take It Every Where — This is the 1st brand new truck i've ever owned,Iaverage 600000km.per year.It'will be 3 years old next month.I drive almost 100km one way to go to work every day. The only issue I've got is that when It's really cold(-10or so)i get a sick whistle from under the hood when on the highway. Been unable to figure it out, Had it at the dealer and of course they are unable to get it? I 'm Really Impressed with the gas milage (average 27; somtimes as high as 30mpg canadian in the summer). Fords cab desighn is great with all the extra space behind the seats,I can get a lot of stuff back there when I go to the city.I only have possitive things to sayabout this truck,style,ride,comfort, power,ect. The one thing negative is that I wish I didn't Buy the Expensive none refundable extended Warranty,$2300.00.Pretty expensive pease of mind I guess. As I said "This was the 1st new truck i've bought.I'm new to this computer thing so i'll post a few pictures of my FORD RULES truck at a later date.

Owner for 2 years, 11 months

Miles Driven per Year:33,000
