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

Review

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.

Favorite Features

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,

Suggested Improvements

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.
