new late in 04. Inspection revealed one screw in rt frt fender cross threaded. No other defects. Towed Coleman trailer several summers all over Montana, no problems. It simply has never failed its' mission. Has been through some very harsh winters up here. Had one problem with corroded emergency brake parts. Fixed by dealer. Caused by goo state sprays on roads. (eats metals). Best truck, best vehicle I've owned in 60 years.
Simple and clean machine.
Plain Jane 6 and a stick 4x4.
Mileage normally 20mpg.
Can go anywhere.
I have owned Ford trucks since 1979. The only problem I have ever had was when a large dealership was unwilling to do minor warranty work. I usually buy a truck new and drive it for years and sell or trade them at 200,000 miles. I just bought this Heritage after trading in a 89 F-250 with 230,000 miles on it. This Heritage is so much better than that F250 even when it was new and don't get me wrong I loved my F 250. It is SO comfortable yet it still feels like a sturdy truck. Getting things in and out of the back is SO much easier. My only issue with this one is that I will not be able to do some of my own maintenance on it but that is OK. I am disabled and have to quit working on them.
The ride, the 60/40 seats, the engine, and the convenience features.
Put the headlight switch in a different spot. My long legs keep hitting it and turning it on when I get in or out of the truck.
I have owned this truck a little while now and it has been nothing but a blessing! The overall quality vs. the money paid in incomparable. Out does Chevy and Dodge on base model pickups. Highly recommend.
Truck handles tightly in turns and sits high like a 4WD with a sporty aggressive look. Smooth shifting automatic transmission and decent power for a 4.2 liter V6. Will definitely get the job done.
Wish it had a few more features (i.e. standard CD player, center console) but it is a base model truck so it's to be expected from anyone. I highly recommend this truck.
This F-150 has been a very solid
vehicle for me. After the disaster that
was my 1999 Olds Bravada the simplicity
was a welcome change. Though I have
only put about 10000 miles on it, I
have not had even a minor mechanical
glitch at this point. With current
incentives, it cost less than my old
SUV did USED. I think this will be a
reliable truck for years to come. The
Super Cab is not very roomy but can
hold an average sized adult male on
shorter trips (under a couple of
hours). The back "doors" help with
getting passengers into and out of the
back. The ride is fairly smooth for a
truck and it gets better milage than
Cup holders could be closer to driver.
Storage compartments on doors could be
