After 40K miles and 2 1/2 years, I'm
still well pleased with my truck. When
I purchased, the main option I
considered was the F150 4 door. The
Dakota styling, ride, and handling sold
me. The truck is just the right size,
not the lumbering giant of a full size
but not the tuna can of a compact.
The fit and finish are good, the 4.7 V8
is an exceptionally strong engine, and
the Infinity stereo is one of the best
factory systems I've heard in a truck.
No major problems with the truck,
although there is some backlash in the
transmission that's anoying.
The engine, apparence, ride, handling,
and convenience options.
The front windshield is low, making it
difficult to see red lights. The
leather isn't the best on the market (as
far as comfort and feel). No power
option for the passenger seat. No
underseat storage on the quad cab.
