The lariat edition is a great value of features and comfort for the price. It is well equipped at the same cost of other competitive manufacturers including GM, Dodge and Toyota. The truck rides well almost like a luxury sedan but offers appealing performance and features to get you off road or to tow that heavy load.
This car may full you with it's smooth ride, but trust me these cars require constant maintenance. The car blew the motor at 110,000 miles so I had a shop put a new motor in. Within the last 2 months I have gone through 4 ac compressors, 2 ac Expansion valves, 2 ac condensers (which requires the entire front of the car to be removed), 2 evaporator cores (witch requires the entire dash to be removed) and I still don't have ac in the car. After driving the car I noticed a vibration so I changed the motor mount. Then the car ran for anther 10,000 miles with no issue until I started to notice vibration again. This vibration was coming from the CV Axel's witch was understandable for a car with 125,000 miles. When I was in the process of having the CV axle changed I got a call from the shop saying they couldn't get the axel out of the steering knuckle and that they had broken a 20 ton press trying. So I had to pay $400 a piece for 2 new steering knuckles, and still payed the shop for labor and repairs to their press where they made sure to inform me what FORD stood for Fix Or Repair Daily. In my experience these cars are a complete nightmare and wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
Bought used. Works very well for getting kids and all our stuff around. If I purchased new I would get leather and a limited slip rear end. Waiting to see how it does on bad roads... probably not good.
Lots of room for anything. Interiors are comfortable and clean. The v8 has ton of power and it sounds like a dream. Not bad on gas considering it’s a big truck. Can tow just about anything, and comfy enough to put my two toddlers in it every day.
I paid 1 dollar for this lariat from someone i worked for and probably the worst investment i have made. I have put 5000 into it and will have to put another 2-3 thousand more to get it to be a decadent vehicle. Still would not trust towing anything with it. Had to replace trans twice in a year and a half. 3ed gear drum is to weak
I had an F-150 for 12 years that ran forever with over 150k on it. Unfortunately I was rear ended at high speed and bent the frame. I found my 2005 Ford F-250 Diesel a couple of weeks later. The pulling power is amazing, it does take some gas as mine is lifted but it looks amazing for a 2005. I have 134k on it and it has so much more to go. Keep it serviced and you will absolutely love this truck. I will not let her go until she does not drive anymore. My 6.0 Powerstroke is amazing. Remember to plug her in the winter and you will have no problems.
Test drove both the V4 with turbos, don't bother...it's too big of a vehicle and takes 10 years to get up to highway speed. The V6 is much better fit for the size. Very roomy, excellent cargo space. Plenty of leg room in the back seat. I took out the SEL and Titanium and the leather is sharp and nav is easy to use. Prices seem very reasonable for the options you get. My only watch out is that this is a SUV not a cross over. Felt more like my husbands F150 than my Rav4.
I've always been a truck guy, mostly Fords. Had a few issues that just could never get corrected on this truck, so somewhat reluctant to change decided to move on to newer technology, and to restart the odometer.
So many issues; where should I start’ For the first 6 months the ford sync system was down constantly. This would meant no heat! Engine light went on at 30k. That means no remote starter. This happened so many times I lost count. Seems to have every sensor which cost more on repairs but the low washer fluid sensor they forgot. Message would come on that the truck is shutting down in 30 seconds. Do you know what that means when your in left lane pulling an 8 ton trailer’ How ford could do that is beyond me. That happened 7 times in 2 years. Washer fluid lines had to be replaced 3 times I the five years I owned it.
This truck had all the things I thought I would ha

This truck came equipped with everything I thought I would have to add after purchase. Very comfortable for me at 6ft 4in and my wife at 5ft 1in.
