2001 Ford F150 Lariat 5.4L from North America
3 coil packs, an injector, third light seal started leaking, odometer works intermittently. Routine maintenance.
Previous rig was a 1993 Explorer, hands down the most reliable vehicle I've had. Couldn't kill that thing, and sold it with 220k running like new.
I bought this truck at 81,000 miles in about perfect shape. I keep on ALL fluid changes and general routine maintenance. Had a few coil packs go bad every few years, and one injector. Easily serviceable parts.
Leather is still OK and in decent shape, albeit dirty from grease and grime over the years.
Love this truck, it's never let me down, and I run it hard to work, towing, hauling, in the mountains; whatever I throw at it, it takes. Gets about 15 MPG average, which is fine by me.
I'm noticing in its old age some plate chatter from the transmission when downshifting out of overdrive. Comes and goes, but otherwise still shifts perfect.
Like I said, just an awesome truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
