2003 Ford F150 XLT Supercab FX-4 5.4L V8 from North America
Become good friends w/a gas station owner
Stereo was replaced twice (volume kept fluctuating). Had to be aligned when I purchased it (with 18 miles).
It had a few items that felt "cheap", such as the supercab doors shifting when the full-size doors would get shut. I could also feel and hear the doors shift on certain bumps (at very low rates of speed). The cabin was extremely comfortable. Never had better than 15mpg on the highway. 3.55 gears.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I noticed the same problem on my F-150, with the doors shifting on certain bumps. In strong crosswinds (on the highway), I could also feel the drivers side doors "push out", if the wind was on the opposite side. My truck has no interior rattles, but I'm afraid it will when it gets around 5 years old, (the quality of the plastic interior is cheap). When I bought mine, it had 3 factory defects; a loose drivers seat, flaking paint on the fenders (right behind the headlights), and a bent tie rod. (And it only had 38 miles on it, when I bought it!) My F-150 was the American version.. Ford built the 95-03 F-150's in America and Canada, and I've heard from many friends to buy the Canadian version.
