1999 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB

Review

Excellent performance, acceleration and handling on curves and at high speed. Not a good vehicle for gas mileage: averages about 13.5 city and about 15 on the highway. No problems with the truck except clear coat. The clear coat evidently is not compatable with Louisiana water--the water ATE it. Can't polish it back to new luster. Not good mileage on tires either-- Goodyear F1's 295/45ZR18 may last 20k with rotations every 3k and watch the air pressure.

Favorite Features

Great engine. Nice interior. Good sound system for a stock vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Better clear coat please. Different paint colors--like the SVT cobra's. Beef up the transmission--shifts like the transmission is gonna blow--even at low rpm <3000. Different tire manufacturer--get tires that will last at least 30k. $1k to $1.5k every 20,000 miles is expensive.
