Pros

Looks like a great vehicle and has the power you need to move and tow things around.

Cons

I cant think of a single circuit or part which has not went out in this truck. If you love spending your weekends working on your truck then i guess its the perfect vehicle for you.

I Should Have Never Bought This Truck, Waste Of Money, Time And Energy. — 6 months after i purchased this truck i came across the strangest loose play in the steering column i had ever felt, almost seemed like the rack was destroyed. Turns out i slipped a belt in my brand new tires, so i replaced them and it happened again, and again, and again. After 6 months of owning this truck i have probably invested half the cost of the truck in tires. Think its a chamber or alignment issue? Nope, its just a Ford Truck that loves to shake :-) I wont get into my other details, lets just add this. **Ford engineering** "Hey, Lets put that fuel pump module in a plastic case up underneath the bed of the truck by the rear tires" Dont even get me started...lol

Black Beauty — This is the most inviting interior cabin for a truck I have seem, Ford motors really put their work in stepping up their game on this one. All the luscious fell of a luxury automobile, the four doors and entertainment center make it a joy on either short or long trips. What a family vehicle.

Head Turner Of A 2005 Fx4 — I love my truck. great looks and very dependable. Averages 15MPG... up to 18-20 MPG on the highway. Front leveling kit really sets this truck apart... looks aggressive, but not way out there! 20" rims and wide multi-surface tires also set it apart. Tires are NOT noisy.

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

Great Truck! — We have had this truck for 5 years and have had very few problems with it. I think in the 5 years we've had it, it's only been in the shop once or twice. My husband loves this truck and in the future will definitely purchase another for...most likely an F250

Pros

Love the sturdy feel of this truck. Runs strong.  I think its the toughest truck on the market.  

Cons

Changing the plugs on these trucks is a chore,  but it doesn't have to be done that often, so I can deal with it.

Workin' Mans Truck. — I just like the feel of this truck on the road. Seems to be tight and strong. The 4.6 is a little underpowered, but it does the work I need it for. Like the looks too with oversize tires, it sits up high and rides good. Also like the fact that Ford didn't need a government (taxpayer) bailout to stay in business. That says a lot about the company.

Good Price For What You Get — I love the full 4 doors. Has been a godsend w 2 kids in car seats. Big enough for 4 adults and 2 kids. Tows a 19 ft camper adequately but needs more power. 4.8L engine struggles up grades that others fly by us. Cloth seats easily stained with young children and showing wear on seats.

Pros

#1 pro of the 150 FX4 is the interior. The FX4 model has a very luxurious interior that rivals any other truck I've sat in. Its quiet, comfortable, and rides like an expensive Sedan. Perfect for family. Yet this truck still has the power to do any work you need it to do. Its a win win truck. You can use it for work, travel, and anything with the family. Back seats have a lot of space also.

Cons

Gas mileage is a little less then estimated MPGs.

Love This Truck, But Mpg Is Not Practical For A Student. — I loved this Fx4 truck very much. You can do everything with this truck from work, to basic offroad use, and anything family related like long trips. The Fx4 model has a very luxurious and spacious interior. Only con is the gas mileage.

Pros

Large vehicle that has plenty of room for road trips, storage, and leg space.

Cons

being a larger vehicle it doesn get nearly as good of gas mileage as a smaller car

Overall I'd Say This Vehicle Was A 4 Out Of 5 Star Option — Very comfortable vehicle with a stylish outer and appearance and interior that matches. Little to no blind spots due to large windows that make it very easy to see 360 degrees around you. Although the gas mileage isn't the greatest, the vehicle is very reliable and easy to maintain. Very safe, fun to drive on and off the road.

F-150 Fx4 Is The Way To Go — Built Ford Tough... Think about the phrase, and picture this truck. Plenty of power when needed, looks great, cheaper than heck to work on and get parts for. Loved driving this truck, never got stuck anywhere. This truck is missed dearly!
