2006 Ford F150 XL 4.2 6 cylinder
This is a good pick up
CD won't eject.
Odometer light works sometimes.
Replaced 1 O2 sensor.
I am very satisfied with the truck. Bought it new, I have never had to visit the dealer. Just basic maintenance done myself.
Brakes lasted 82k, no joke, fronts and rear. Just changed the pads, rotors are still good.
Still has the original battery.
Just oil/filter changes every 5k, air filter once in a while. Just did complete tuneup, including trans service/filter.
I got the 6 cylinder XL with tow package.
Decent sound from the stock stereo. Manual windows/locks. A/C works well
Fair fuel mileage, 17-18 average (6 cylinder) unless you tow.
The six banger is a good motor. But if you tow, you will for sure know it's back there. I've towed horses and hauled many a 800lb round bail of hay in it.
I looked at Toyota, but way too much money.
This one is the regular cab with the rear doors. Makes for a lot of room inside, and easy to get at your gear.
This truck still runs and drives like new. I expect it to last a long time.
Maybe I got lucky and bought one that was built on Wednesday.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
