I love my F150! Ive got a supercrew 4x4 XLT with the 5.4L triton. The motor makes plenty of power and I have had the truck for a year and never had to do any work on it (other than basic maintenance) I have 157,000 miles on it and it hasnt shown any signs of aging. There is no rust anywhere on the truck and the frame is still black. The interior is very spacious and very well designed with solid feeling, quality materials. The 4x4 works great and this truck is unstopable in the snow if you drive reasonably. Gas milage isn't great but hey its a truck. It is a very impressive truck that everyone knows and loves!

Bought a lariat with leather and all bells and whistles. Trans replaced around 50k replaced under warranty, injector at 100k, plugs @ 100k, multiple brake changes. Brakes don't seem to last. Changing the plugs is an expensive endever expect $500-$1000, yes that much! They have a tendency to break off and require special tools and an hour a piece. Besides these things I love the truck. Drove chevy all my life, and like the ford better.

I just acquired a 2004 f150 lariat supercrew. I love it so far. THe styling, the comfort. Performance wise it leaves something to be desired. Not the fastest or most powerful thing on the road but I bought a truck not a race car. I love it and would highly recommend it.

From 2004. There is not another truck that can compare to the lariat or king ranch features. I've had all the big 3 no comparison in ride comfort and reliability than the f150. do yourself a favor and drive one you will see. The interior is not even close in a Chevrolet or dodge. Have had 3. Looking for newer.

Beautiful and hard working.

by from Canada on August 20, 2010

I bought a black F150 FX4 5.4L V8, used, with 60,000km on it in 2007. It was used as my daily driver to and from work, as well as towing quads and cars/trailers. It's a beautiful truck inside and out, and it drives as solid as it looks. The transmission needed replacing at 98,000km, and I paid for a used one for 1300$ (incl. installation!). That was the only issue I ever had with the vehicle for the almost 3 years I owned it. You get a very safe feeling driving it, and it handled wonderfully in snow (even without snow tires), mud, and around the city. It's engine was more than responsive, allowing passing and tight merges with ease. I won't lie, it hurts the wallet at the pumps, here in Calgary where gas prices are currently around 1$ a litre, it is about 120$+ to fill the tank, and it gets about 13mpg. But if you want the fuel mileage of a SmartCar, you wouldn't be purchasing a truck. I just sold the truck for an Expedition (growing family), and get teary thinking about my truck. It's a wonderful vehicle and I would recommend it to anyone.

Before this truck I had a p.o.s chevy and the power and reliability of the ford F-150 is in its own catagory because you can't really compare this truck to any others because its reliability and quality surpases all of its competitors.

Most Fun Truck ever!

This truck is a head turner. Every stop light, every parking lot, people will stop and stare. I had a silver 2001 model. Biggest mistake I ever made was trading that in. I put a little too many extras under the hood and blew the engine, but the Ford Warranty covered it. Overall, this truck can fly! 5.0 mustangs, trans ams... nothing will stand in your way!

Good Truck; some concerns

I have owned my 04 XLT Super Crew 5.4 for almost 2.5 years. I purchased this truck used with 20K. Started with Mobil 1 full synthetic. All service done by Ford upgraded rotors, brakes, and tires. I have a problem with the truck starting to shake uncontrolably often. I have to pull over sometimes to wait it out. I can't replicate the problem for the dealer. I also have a sound that sounds like a "dying animal" when I start the truck, when I accelerate and when I down shift (automatic) or change gears for any reason? I like the truck I just wish the noise "dying animal under the hood" would stop. I bow hunt and sometimes need to talk on my cell when driving. Very hard to drive to the land early in the A.M. in stealth mode with this screamer.... Hopefully the dealership can figure it out soon??
