Summary:

Excellent truck that definitely lives up to the motto, Built Ford Tough!

Faults:

Although I've only had this particular F150 for a year, I have had absolutely no problems with it.

This truck had about 33,300 miles on it the day I bought it, and due to a 60 mile per day roundtripper to work, I have put about 17,000 additional miles on it to date.

My only expenses so far have strictly been in the "NORMAL" upkeep in maintaining it.

General Comments:

Not surprisingly, having owned several Fords in the past, I am extremely pleased with this one as well. It's spacious, handles great considering that it's a pick-up, great power and towing, huge cargo space for hauling, body is strong and tight, and I get all this in a great looking truck. Best of all, I got it all at a great price too!

I can't speak for everyone, but I'm getting excellent gas mileage from this truck, especially considering that it's V8. Although I haven't gauged it in several months, I got about 21 miles per gallon on my first four fill-ups using BP gasoline.

The cabin is very quiet.

Summary:

Disappointment

Faults:

Intermittent rough idle from new. No fix from dealer.

Stereo failure at 1 year old. No dealer help.

Limited slip differential failure at 45,000Km, repaired under warranty.

Rear parking brake seized up at 48,000Km.

General Comments:

This truck has been a disappointment.

It has a lack of power as well as a lack of fuel mileage.

The off road ability is poor due to no limited slip differential. The one in it has never worked. According to the dealer, Ford loosened them up because of customer complaints about noise.

Seat material stains easily.

Accessory drive on the engine is noisy.

The box sides/tailgate are too high for a normal height person to reach over.

It is a pretty truck, but if you need a truck to do some work, look for something else.

I feel your pain man, I really do. I have a '08 F150 (V6) and it too has a rough idle to it, comes and goes. Ford says they lean out the emissions at idle, I don't buy it. Mine seems underpowered, even with the manual trans it feels like a 4 banger. Beautiful truck, but don't try to do work with it, it will not have the power for the job.

Summary:

The 2004 to 2008 F-150's are 10 times better than the older F-150 models

Faults:

Nothing went wrong.

General Comments:

This truck is beautiful, handles like driving a race car, is quiet and and has a comfortable ride.

Excellent climate controls.

With the 3.73 rear slip differential, I never have to switch it to 4 wheel drive. I never owned a better 4x4 truck with as good 2 wheel drive traction this truck has. I live in a heavy lake effect snow belt area where 4 wheel drive is needed, and I am amazed how good it goes through heavy snow, without slipping a wheel in heavy snow.

Faults:

I have never read anything about the HEATER in the F150 super crew. I live in Minnesota where it does get COLD. We have climate control in the truck. The passenger front is approx. 30 degrees colder than drivers side. I have had it in twice to repair, but no change.. LAST FORD FOR ME!!!
