Sweet, cheap money for awesome truck!
Nothing yet. The truck has been great except for the bed being a bit dinged up. But that's my fault for not putting a full bed cover in.
I love this truck! I bought it new for cheap money off the lot. Only 12 k for a F150 4x2 extended cab (4 door) standard tranny.
I do wish I had the auto tranny, but it cost another 1k so I'll live with it. In fact I like being able to rev it and slip the clutch when I need to more power off the line. I also wish I had the 4x4 but this one is doing fine with sandbags in the bed during winter. Actually the manual is fun to drive in my opinion and I get decent gas mileage, something like 18 city and 22 highway. I'm not exactly sure, but its better than many others.
The interior in this rocks. I know it doesn't have power anything, but I don't need that. I kinda wish it had real carpets, but I ride motorcycles and I do get the floor pretty nasty. Overall the truck has tons of room and the extended cab is just great. There is a lot of room back there and the possibilty to have six ppl in the truck at one time! I have seat covers for the front bench and it feels much nicer now. Also the controls are just right. Everything is within easy reach and the truck looks good inside.
The exterior looks pretty sharp too. The only thing is that this style looks better with the raised front end found on 4x4s. However mine is black and shiny and looks pretty cool from the front and not bad from the side. I'd like to raise the front a little, but not everything is perfect. I'd have to say ford made this 4x2 supercab look pretty damn good.
Overall, I've done oil changes and regular maintenance and this truck has been hauling me, my friends, and my bike all over with no problems and has kept me happy. Built ford tough, but I'll stay on road to keep it that way. ;)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
