Summary:

This is one fine truck!

Faults:

New seal for the transmission at 85,000 miles.

General Comments:

This is a all-around good truck, The only bad thing about it is it's fuel economy. The engine still has pep, and no mechanical errors have occurred. However, a Minnesota winter will not be good on any vehicle's fuel consumption. For being a pick-up it can still push through the deepest amount of snow (actually growing up in Minnesota it's common to become immune to the rapid changing driving conditions)

I know what you mean by harsh Minnesota conditions. I live in Stillwater and am glad to know that a 1995 F-150 holds up. I am about to buy one, and thanks for the review.

Summary:

It is a very tough and reliable truck!

Faults:

The manual transmission slave cylinder has been replaced about every 35,000 miles. I've replaced three so far.

There are two fuel tanks on this truck each with its own fuel pump, I've replaced a total of three pumps.

I have also replaced each fuel tank due to corrosion and leaking.

The twin I-beam suspension is tough, but once the front shocks start to wear, watch the inside of your tires wear right off.

General Comments:

This truck has never left me stranded.

I've kept up on preventative maintenance and enjoyed a reliable truck.

After 145,000 miles I still feel it is a very dependable ride and it still looks great.

I don't plan on getting rid of it until it hits 250,000 miles!

A reliable vehicle that is great looking

General Comments:

Very reliable vehicle, never has left me stranded.

Gas mileage is poor, but it is a truck.

Interior fit and finish is not as refined as comparable GM models of this year.

Front bench seats are not supportive, and become uncomfortable for long trips.

Good vehicle overall.

Will purchase another Ford Vehicle again.

Summary:

Awesome off-road vehicle

Faults:

I purchased an extended warranty from the dealership when I purchased the truck. The previous owner had leased it. The 3-year warranty just ran out in January - and I got my money's worth! The most expensive job was the front ball joints. They had never been serviced, and it took two strong guys at the shop to take them out! I had the brakes done at the same time.

Leaking hose from clutch.

Starter Motor.

Fuel Pump.

All covered under warranty!

General Comments:

This is an excellent off-road vehicle. It has the power to get over and through stuff that the other trucks have trouble with!

It handles well in the city, but is tough on gas.

Comfortable on the Highway, but I need my lower back support.

Love the short bow, regular cab for visibility and for easier parking!

Summary:

Good value work horse

Faults:

The rear gas tank began leaking in 2001. The front gas tank has now begun to leak too so I must replace them both.

The first rust spot has just appeared above the wheel on the rear drivers side quarter panel.

Brakes do seam to wear quickly as I've had to replace rotors and pads twice in 50,000 miles.

The manual 4 speed transmission made by Mazda - a subsidiary of Ford, had to be rebuilt at a cost of $1500 including new clutch after just 100,000 miles. This may be due to hauling boat and trailer.

I change the oil and filter every 6000 miles and have had no engine problems. The AC still works too and that's why I haven't yet traded it.

General Comments:

The 6 cylinder sucks a bit on hills, but it has a strong pull at low speed like on the boat ramps. It's a very comfortable ride for a pickup truck.
