Starter Review — This is the best vehicle I have owned to date. Through a little upgrading of my own it lookes better than when I bought it. It's the best model for its year and series. However I still have the desire to get more out of the engine and put some more money into basic feature upgrades.

No More Fords For Me! — the performance of this truck was very disappointing. although most people tell it was because i had the 4.6 engine. I say if it was so bad why didn't ford do something about it, instead of letting it go for yrs. Gas mileage was terrible also.the good things was it was a good looking . and the inside wasn't to bad either. I won't buy another f150...

This truck is very comfortable and easy to drive.

Cons

Compared to my previous truck, a Dodge, the F-150 has a much larger turning radious, making it harder to park in small parking lots.

2004 F-150 Ext Cab — This is truck is well built and hasn't given me any trouble at all. It has the 4.6L V8 with an automatic. I have driven a 4.6L Mustang with a 5 speed. Given that this is the same engine, I'd have to say that the weight of the truck makes a HUGE difference in performance. Acceleration is just average for my truck, which is fine for what it is. Towing my trailer loaded with three dirt bikes is no trouble and hauling a half yard of dirt is no problem at all. We drove it on vacation and the kids, 9 and 13, had no complaints with the comfort of the back seat.

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.

Ford F150 Fx4 — Performance: The 5.4L is a great motor. Great torque... have pulled out many cars and trucks out of the mud/snow without even trying. Handling: This truck handles amazingly well. Sure its a beast, but it handles MUCH better than the older 150's. Very stable, little body roll... very neutral. Appearance: Has a great look. Love the leather interior. Only drawback is the center console that sacrifices and extra seat in the middle up front. Build Quality: Overall the truck is solid. I rear ended a minivan at about 50 MPH and I only scratched my tow hook. The shiftlever cap fell off though after about a year. Oh well. Cost of ownership: Gas milage is very respectable. I did my homework before I bought it and on highway it is rated at about the same MPG as V6 Tacoma's and Frontiers. On long trips I have gotten up to 25 MPG, mainly because at 75 MPH the motor is only turning 2000RPMs. In the city or in stop and go.... its not that great. The other thing is this thing will go through breaks like nothing. Its a big truck but it stops very well.. but it costs you. Overall this truck is a lot of fun. I have taken it on long road trips, to the desert, into the snow and it has performed great. The only downside to this truck is the transmission. It is a 4 speed automatic (3 speed + overdrive). There are spots in the power range that are very flat, and then the power kicks in again and it pulls very well. I believe ford started putting in 5 speed autos a few years later.

Ford F-150 Xl 4wd — Overall 5/5 - Excellent truck. Performance 4/5 - Slow to accelerate, but that's what you get with a big automatic truck. Otherwise, it's very fast with a massive 5.4L Triton V8 generating around 300hp. It will stop in a hurry, and can take a corner very very well for such a big truck (provided you have good tires). Gas mileage is what you'd expect.. it is a gas guzzler, but who cares? If you care about gas, you shouldn't even be considering trucks, go drive your stupid Prius. Build Quality 5/5 - Well it's been around for 5 years-ish, 100,000 km's (almost), and only been to the shop once to have a fuse replaced which blew and prevented it from being switched from 4x4 low high (it got stuck in 4x4 low). Otherwise, it's had routine oil changes and such and held up very well over the years. Appearance 5/5 - Who can't love the massive F-150 with the slick design, Ford Sports Performance Rims, chrome trim... Awesome.
