1997 Ford F-150 Lariat 3dr Extended Cab Stepside SB
I own with 0 miles, On the first month of use, I learned it had defective front shocks; the dealer changed them for new ones. It currently has 52,000 miles on it. I've changed the front pads twice for regular wear, change engine oil every 3,000 miles and have already changed tranny oil at 48,000 miles. At 25,000 miles I noticed a problem in the driver side window, so I changed the window motor for one that I bought on ebay. Not a single engine problem. Mileage of 13mpg in city is not so good, but it's a 5,400 pound vehicle with a 5.4 liter engine.
4 x 4 shift on the fly, 6 disc CD changer, Stylish look, ride quality for a 4 X 4 pickup, leather confort, engine reliabillity,
Shift on fly button relocation, lights on the cruise control and side mirror button. Gas mileage at least to 17 mpg on city 23 mpg highway. Front headlights are very opaque with sun; need a better material that won't fade. Coil #5 misfired because water of defroster directly affects, needs relocation.
my f-150 2 dr 4.2 ltr has been sitting
at my dealer ship for 6 months. the
engine died at 68000 miles and ford
will not take responsibility for this.
i have gotten in touch with attorney
general in my area( consumer
protection) and waiting to here from
them. i dont think i will ever buy
another ford, also the total of the
bill is 5000.00 that i don't have!
this truck was maintained very well,
and this really makes me furious!!!!!
is there anyone that i could write to
other than what i have done already?
is there an address that i could write
to and make sure they get it? please
let me know. thankyou, lisa
i havent driven it in so long i forgot
FORD NEEDS TO STAND BY THEIR ENGINE
AND COVER THE COST FOR THE CONSUMER,
THIS WILL DEFINITELY LOSE SALES!!!!!!
I have over 150,000 miles on this
truck and it has yet to have 1 single
part break in the drivetrain or
anywhere else for that matter. I
don't baby it either and have many
performance mods yet this truck
doesn't leak a drop of fluid and now
gets over 15mpg--A really good number
for the 5.4L. I plan to keep it for
the forseeable future.
Could have a little better ride but it
is a truck not a cadillac, thank god.
