    It Was An Ok People Mover. — A pretty good truck unless you wanted to haul something in the box. It was made to haul people, not sheets of plywood. Box too short for a fifth wheel hitch unless you buy one of those fancy self moving hitches ($4000).

    Pros: Nice interior

    Cons: Poor mileage, box too short.

    Couldn't Have Made A Better Choice For A First Truck — I bought this truck in the summer of 07 and so far I have no major complaints. It ha met and exceeded my expectations.

    Pros: Capable truck to handle my needs.  Decent gas mileage for a V8

    Cons: underpowered for hauling or towing much

    A Pleasure To Drive.... — My first 5.4L V8 truck. I find it has lots of towing power and plenty enough power to pass when you need to. The ride is firm but not overly so, with responsive steering. Paint job was well done by Ford. Heated leather seats sure are nice in the winter, most newer leather has heating and cooling now but I still get a kick out of mine. All and all a good buy for someone that may want a truck for off road and on.

    Pros: Looks great, feels great, good visablity '04 style has bigger pillers, Cheaper 17" tires way more choice then 18", Its a Ford FX4.

    Cons: Door trim keeps comeing loose, no electronic shift but floor shift works great, and hard to reach the oil filter for shade tree mechanics.

    Vehicle For The Family That Isn't Afraid To Get Dirty — Obviously a very pretty truck, but also very capable in all weather and driving conditions. XLT trim package means it has most of the modern day amenities we are all spoiled by.

    Pros: Go anywhere, anytime with the whole family and all your gear

    Cons: the price of gas

    Great Commuter/work Truck — This truck has been pretty awesome to me. I just past 100k miles in 2013 and it is still hard to beat this truck. It has all the room you can ask in a truck. There are only a few downfalls which include bed length and some electronics that tend to fail (I had a relay for remote lock/unlock fail, but no big deal - $20 bucks)

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

    Pros: Great Truck..  I've done everything from daily commute to haul dirt/junk with this truck.  I've even used it to pull up roots.

    Cons: Fuel economy could do better on the road.  So could the handling in the snow/rain.

    Awesome Truck, Looking For An F-250 Now! — Great truck! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a dependable vehicle! If you want a reliable truck, you can't go wrong with a 2003 Ford F-150, mine had 33,000 miles when I bought it and its almost 150,000 miles with only a bearing in an alternator going bad and only changing tires, oil, and brakes!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: My truck has not let me down in 120,000 miles and I'm taking it from Az. To San Fran and back without hesitation!

    Cons: None, other than gas mileage when I run the a/c, it drops 3-4 mpg!

    I see all these positive reviews for the Ford F150 and I wonder if Ford hires people to do the reviews. At 120K my transmission took a dump and at 148K my timing chain and possible other phase controllers blew out. Done with Ford. Period
