1997 Ford F-150 Lariat 3dr Extended Cab SB

Review

I leased this pickup in 1999 when it was 2 years old with 22000 miles. One week after I brought it home it started to run poorly, spew fumes and smoke, after 3 visits to the dealer (each time telling me that it was the O2 sensor) they finally changed the ECU. It immediately started running perfectly and I have had no trouble since. Ther is little to no maintenance required. Just change the oil and put in gas. I liked it so much that I bought it outright at the end of the lease. I plan on keeping it until one of us kicks the bucket. Chances are I will go first!

Favorite Features

I really like the interior. The leather is the best I have ever owned in any vehicle. I also like the Ford dependabilty. I hve carried over a ton of brick in it an it didn't even break a sweat.

Suggested Improvements

FOrd has already made the change I would like most to their newer models. The 4 door extended cab would be my only wish. The 3rd door can be a little difficult since it opens in the opposite direction.
