Old Truck — It had a 300 inline 6 motor with a 3-speed manual. It was lethargic, but dependable.

Pros: Dependable

Cons: Fuel Mileage

Very Strong Reliable Truck, Versatile And Large. — The 1986 F150 xlt Lariat is a very solid and dependable truck. Fun to drive, just enough body roll to make driving interesting. When driven aggresively in traffic other cars will move out the way of this work/cruisin truck left over from the eighties

Pros: big, powerful, impressive, versatile, stops good, decent take off

Cons: decent handleing, poor fuel economy, top end speed is only 115-125 mph.

It Has 4 Wheels, That's About It. — Well, I was gonna just skip this part, but it says "Plese enter a longer review, so I will see if this works.

Pros: It runs, it's got a torquey V-8, it looks decent for it's age, and after 103,000+ miles, it's still tickin' like brand new.

Cons: The AC and Heat don't work, but the worst thing is the driver's side power window won't work either. Makes it kinda hard to drive through for food, lol!

Good Cheap Strong Ox-like Truck. — We actually bought this truck used. It however had a V8 that pulled like an ox, and was a very reliable truck. You could find yourself speeding if you weren't careful.

Pros: Fast, strong, reliable, roomy, white, not a bad truck overall.

Cons: Paint sucked, mirror backing was falling off, the seat had been burnt, and the mileage was a bit high.

Considering — I bought this truck from a friend of mine for 800$ and it has caused me a bankload of trouble. First the rearend went, then the timing chain, then the rearend again. Now when you want to excellerate to pass someone it doesn't have the guts (i think it's a plugged filter or a bad pump)and the coil went once and the shocks needed to be redone. All I have is trouble with the calipers, it has a short circuit somewhere it keeps shorting out the driverside headlight and there's no reverse lights. The rear gas tank is mia and the heatercore and fan had to be redone...... considering it's an old truck and has all that wrong with it, it only has 208 thou kms on it ( and no oil pressure gauge for some unknown reason)

Pros: I love for pickup trucks when you got a good one the world is yours, when you got one like mine you're in the banks back pocket.

Cons: with old second hand vehicles you don't know who has drove it when and how, so you buy and keep trying... maybe someday i'll sell her or just send her to the wreckers cuz i'm never gonna fix all the problems.

Awesome Truck I Wish I Still Had It — dad bought this brand new in '86 and gave it to me when i was 16, but it was all beat up and it only lasted me a couple years. but it was the toughest truck i ever owned, it served its life in full.

Pros: everything. tons of power from the 302, awesome off-road, and awesome peelability.

Cons: none

Review By Guru95L478

I wanted heated seats, low miles (35K>), reasonably priced (~35K). It met those criteria. I compared it to a F150 Lariat - 1 year older, 37K miles and $42K - could not justify the increased price. Read More
