1998 Ford F-150 XL 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

This pickup has always been reliable, even in severely cold weather. I have had no problems with it. It still has no rattles, squeaks or wind noise. It runs smoothly and the automatic shifts well. The only improvement that could be made is to reduce the cabin noise level. This pickup is much quieter than my previous F150 but could be better.


Best Features

The body is tight and the engine is smooth and reliable.


Worst Features

Make the cabin quieter.

1998 Ford F-150 XL 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I used this truck for towing my
motorcycle trailer and for general all-
around driving. It has been highly
reliable and functional. I bought the
smaller V-8 thinking it would get
better mileage than the larger engine.
It didn't and that was disappointing.

A great around truck, but not good for
large range commuting because of the
mileage (about 13.5 MPG).


Best Features

style and appearance, stability and reliability


Worst Features

A small V-8 like this should get better mileage under normal driving. I think Ford is working on this.

Review

I didn't like the body style of the
modern F-150's, but when I saw this
4x4 I changed my mind. Two tone paint
really accentuates the truck well.
Very reliable truck. Not real great
gas mileage, but none of the full size
trucks do. The 4.6 is a little under
powered and the captains chairs in the
XLT aren't the most comfortable, but
there really isn't any one thing that
stands out as a bad feature of this
truck. Again, the truck just keeps
going and will take anything I throw
at it.


Best Features

Reliability, good layout, never overheats (in AZ traffic even)


Worst Features

A little noisy in the cab, captain's chairs aren't real comfy, gas mileage isn't great and the 4.6 is underpowered for my lead foot...
