1997 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

My family purchased this truck new for my brother. My brother didn't like it so my dad drove it and when I got my license I inherited this pile of junk (it was 10 years old). When i first started driving it it was ok but lately its been making sudden jerks and noises. After i drive it for a little bit the motor keeps on making noise. The temperature gauge has caused it to die. I have to hit the tailgate to open it. My family has only had Chevys before this and we are all going back to Chevys. Built Ford Tough is a big understatement. I can't wait to get something nicer.


Favorite Features

Well the only thing is the interior holds up decently over many years.


Suggested Improvements

Well the newer ones look ok but make sure they are reliable for many years because many people like to keep their vehicles for long amounts of time.

Review

My brother is a "Chevy" man and he warned me about the Fix Or Repair Daily thing (FORD). Well, I have never owned a more reliable vehicle than this pickup. In 6 yrs & over 120K miles, I have had to change: thermostat gasket ($3), fan belt ($18), Battery ($50), tires ($300), look on my brother's face every time I mention it PRICELESS!!!!


Favorite Features

Reliability, looks, utility.


Suggested Improvements

Gas consumption.
