ford f-150s have a great history, not only being the #1 for almost 40 years, but the reliability and the handling in there trucks is immaculate to gm and dodge, not only do you get a truck that can take a beating and used as a workhorse you get a truck that might outlast you!

Incredibly reliable

I bought my F-150 Lariat King Cab new in Florida in 1999 and have spent less than $1K on repairs in almost ten years of daily driving. Except for parking lot dings on the outside and minor wear on the uppholstery and steering wheel it still looks and runs like new. I have a very expensive German car too, and the F-150 wins hands down for reliability.

very reliable truck, good value

by from meridian, ID on October 17, 2006

I would buy another one, good value and very reliable, the 4.6l has good torque and gets good gas mileage for a V8.

Mine is a V-6 five speed. She is about to roll 300,000 miles. Interior and exterior wise she looks like a 90,000 mile vehicle. I have put shocks on her and she needs stabilizer bushings. The mileage has never been as good as I would like. About 16.5 mpg on the road. But 300,000 miles is a long walk. I give her a solid five stars.

Money Pit

Good power from the 5.4L engine. Traction-Lok rear axle gave it superior traction. Constant front end problems with ball joint and tie rod end failures. Driver's door developed stress crack near window, right of door handle. Ford failed to adress it. Power locks stopped functioning at 100, 000 kms. Intermitting odometer indicator. Exhaust manifolds rusted out prematurely. Constant calliper replacement required. They were prone to sticking after only a year. Wiper arm mechanism failed twice during heavy rain and required dis-assembly to repair linkage, a real pain in snow storms/rain. AC compressor failed and truck would not turn over (stranded). Had to lift engine to replace the compressor. Under carriage plaqued with excessive rust despite yearly under coating. I always had a Ford/Mercury trucks & cars and had no issues with reliability until this truck (spent $$$ on this vehicle). Have switched to BMW and will not likely buy anymore North American vehicles from now on.

Can't wait 2 buy new ford truck

We have owned our f150 5.4 V8 for 13 years best truck we have owned by far. We have owned 2 small Toyota trucks that had small issues. This truck has towed from 2500-6500 lb trailers on our vacations (we rented). It is a work horse. If you need a great used truck don't be worried buy one of these, ours has 130,000 miles only reason we will sell is to get the new diesel or Eco boost.

155k Miles in the Rustbelt and Still Going Strong

When this generation F150 came out, it was the first truck that wasn't shaped like a brick and also had a decent interior. The V8s are great engines and the 4x4 system is good enough to drive exclusively on soft-sand beaches for two summers straight (I know b/c I did this!) Like any older vehicle, parts start to wear as the age (and to a lesser extent mileage) start to add up. However, this truck is pretty easy to work on and all of the major components (engine, transmission, etc.) work well. I would recommend an F150 to anyone who wants a good blend of performance, value and great ownership community. There are so many folks who own these that you can find videos online for replacing anything. Parts are cheap too!

Reliable workhorse of a truck

Bought this truck at 3 years old and 36,000 miles. Now is 16 years old with 200,235 miles. Very reliable during her service life with a few repairs needing a Saturday to deal with. At truck's peak got 19mpg with a flat bed cover. V6 a bit noisy when under load but strong engine. Cabin very comfortable, even after 13 years of driving, no problems with the seat, seatbelts, or controls. A few complaints, though: 3 of the 6 exhaust manifold outlets rusting out with no way to repair save replacement (very difficult to work on the OHV V6). Also power steering during turns sounds like a relief valve venting, can hear hissing and has done that all her service life. Overall best vehicle I have ever owned and am looking for another Ford F-150 in the near future (need a backseat for family now).
