Reliable truck for a good price.

by from Eagles Mere,Pa on July 15, 2017

Very reliable truck that made it to 180k miles. Would still have it, if not for the rust that put a hole in the frame.

I owned this truck from 2003-2017. Over 14 years I had to replace a number of odd ball parts. This includes a few PVC valves, tons of spark plugs, plug wires, headlight switch, passenger door lock switch, passenger window motor, under dash computer system, reverse switch on the transmission, radiator, clutch, brake calipers, and a blinker switch. This does not include normal things like brakes, tires, etc.. it had 180K miles when I sold it. I loved the truck overall. Took me across the country a few times and rarely left me on the side of the road. Being a popular model I was always able to find cheap parts. I had to sell as things just kept breaking.. and besides a commuter car I used the truck to go way out in the national forests, so I needed reliability.

It's been a great truck for me. I've owned it for 18 years. I've used it for towing, 4-wheeling in the snow, commuting to work, and traveling. I have gotten my money's worth for sure. There have been a few repairs to be sure but it's been 18 years. It was my first Ford truck and I now prefer Ford trucks.

Very practical

by from Ballwin, MO on June 5, 2017

Great to have and it can do so many things from towing to hauling. You also have a lot of friends who come up with good uses for a truck

I bought my 1997 Ford F150 in 1999. It has been my daily driver ever since. I have put 250,000 miles on the motor and it still runs like the day I brought it home. It's comfortable, and been reliable since purchase. After 18 years of moving the only real problem I have had is the paint is beginning to fade and wear. I will keep this truck til it retires itself.
