1985 Ford F-150Review

Good Truck To Keep On A Farm. — I bought the truck cheap. And overall it hasn't been bad. However it seems to have a problem with overheating and cutting out. I was not really made aware of this when I bought it. I have tried to fix it but have been unsuccessful. I have more than got my use of it though. I let my father use it as a farm truck.

Pros: Dependable if you don't need to go far.

Cons: Not reliable enough to let a friend borrow or even sell for a profit.

Maintenance Cost:

I Really Liked It — I like the price,but hat the fact the previous owner put the tranny in the shop and left it there.also those fog lights and the way it's got bolts or something I canfigure out on the roof then there's the windshield leaks.and 1more thing the bed liner 've got to take it out to check for rust,bed installation done wrong

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

Pros: it's a beautiful truck bed fair running boards tool box, factory mags brush guard

Cons: it needs carpet ,door and window switches.it needs a CD player,and like I said ,I bought it without a tranny

Overall The Best Truck I Have Owned And Driven. By SJ6863

The ecoboost engine is fantastic, lots of low end grunt, very smooth and effortless but, they should have come with a manual mode selection (different mapping) for better fuel economy. The 3.73 rear e... Read More

Good Allround Pickup By golfnut_bill
