1997 Ford F-150 Extended Cab Lariat 3dr Extended Cab SB


Review

This truck is now 10 years old and I have owned it for 3 years. It is still reliable everyday and beats the style of the new F-150's by far. The Tritin V8 delivers 210hp and the lariat towing package is a class 3 so i have never had any problems towing anything. Plent of room for up to 6 in the cabin, unlike most tundras. F-150 is all around great american truck, wish they still made them like this. Only improvement would be gas mileage.


Best Features

Towing ability, comfort


Worst Features

Better gas mileage

Review

I've owned my F-150 for about nine months now and haven't been happier! Sure its not the most flashy, but it is a solid truck. It has 107,000 miles on it and it hasn't had any problems so far; well except for the time a drunk person hit me. There are a few things I would change, like the overall fit and finish is poor, and who doesn't like more power? The highs are the handling and the "truck feel" it has, you know you're in a truck. Overall though I love this truck!


Best Features

6 disc cd changer, leather seats, shift on the fly four-wheel drive, 4.6 liter Triton v8.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, more power, better fit and finish.

It could have used slighty more power, which it received in later engine revisions.

Review

100,000 miles and the truck hasn't left me walking. Excellent ride and styling, good performance. Replaced pittman arm and control arm bushings-both got noisy, idle air control valve, battery just recently. Nothing else but normal maintenance and tires.


Best Features

Roomy interior, dependablity, looks.


Worst Features

Console/armrest should lock in down position, spilt a few coffees because of this.
