1997 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

Never thought about getting a truck, but an implulse buy made me glad I did. It has moved me 3 times over the last 3 years. This thing is very reliable, and for 115000 miles still work like a charm. The 4.2 V6 w/ 5sp has a bit of get-up and is fantastic on the highway. Great control location, and the interior design is highly functional and comfy. Exterior design is OK. Residual is alright for a 1997, but I have no plans in selling it. I'm trying to put in a CD player, but the 1997 stereo is unique, and I can't find one!

Favorite Features

A boatload of crap or a weeks worth of groceries fit behind the front seat.

Suggested Improvements

Hmmm-instrument cluster has dual fuel filler door indicators (i'm not quite THAT slow) and a cruise control indicator that isn't even functional on the F-150 (for use in the expedition???)
