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.

Beautiful and hard working.

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,...
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.

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??

I have owed my 2004 SuperCrew Lariat 2WD for 8 years and have put 110K on it. I love the exterior design and the interior design. I bought it used it routinely gets 15.9 MPG city/hwy driving. It handles great, ride it very smooth and comfortable, it has the 5.4 engine with plenty of power, no problem towing. The only BIG complaint I have is the window regulators (motor) go out. All 4 have gone out at a cost of approx. $300 a piece. That's $1200 in repairs just on windows. It is the only reason I cannot give it 5 stars on reliability. Otherwise this is one great truck and would recommend it to anyone and I will buy another F150.

I love this truck and I wouldn't give it up for anything. I still get comments about how cool it looks inside and out, even after almost 5yrs. This baby came loaded with everything and I got it for just a few hundred over dealer cost in Alaska. I did have a problem with the brakes a year after purchase, but the dealer fixed that problem quickly. It is a little jumpy without a load on our Alaska roads and I have yet to tow anything with it, but I am completely satisfied with this truck.

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.

I have owned my, 2004 F150 since 2006. When purchased it had 60,000miles; now it has over 140000miles. This truck rides like a luxuary car. I have the 60/40 front seat cloth int. and it is very comfortable. I have loved owning this truck, it has the smaller v-8 4.6L it is a higher RPM engine however even though the two valve is a little low on hp it makes up for thaton longer trips with better hwy mpg over Ford 5.4. I have hauled over 7000lbs repeatedly with no issues. The front brakes could be a little better. The rotors are made together with the front bearings on the two wheel drive trucks and they are so thin that you can't get more than one good service out of them. I have only superchip programmer and the 'gotts' air intake mod on my truck. I run it pretty hard and do all the services my self. Full synthetic oil, engine and transmission. This has been one of the best trucks I have ever owned. I would highly recommend this truck to anyone looking for a great full size truck.
