1998 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought this truck used; it was four years old then, and now I've had it four years. I've done nothing but routine inspections and change the oil and filters regularly. It has never been to the shop for anything. Even the battery lasted eight years. Only 75k miles on it, but this truck has been nothing but a joy to own. I will never ever consider buying a Chevy again.


Favorite Features

Comfortable, quiet ride. RELIABILITY.


Suggested Improvements

None.

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


Review

I have 175,000 miles on this truck and never had anything go wrong; this is a top quality truck. I abuse the heck out of this truck driving daily from 4000 ft to 8000 ft in the mountains. The 4WD system gets abused 9 winter months of the year. An excellent truck.


Favorite Features

4WD with low range and 4 wheel ABS. Excellent Quality.


Suggested Improvements

Brighter reverse lights.

1998 Ford F-150 XL 3dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Bought just after 9/11. It has been a good truck. I used it as a commuter, until I got a job with a company vehicle. Now it is my around the weekend truck. Like the folding rear seat, like the 60/40 bench seat in the front.


Favorite Features

The 60/40 bench seat , the A/C still is COLD for a 7 year old truck with 120,000+ miles on it.


Suggested Improvements

I hate the bed of the truck. The truck has been revised in the past few years, but the bed still looks like the bottom half of a cargo van.

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


Review

This a very solid, reliable vehicle. Always starts and runs strong, will never leave you stranded. Excellent 4WD capabilities. Very comfortable and a pleasure to drive for a truck. Supercab has more room than most cars.


Favorite Features

Driveability. It handles and rides nicely for a full size truck.


Suggested Improvements

Would love to get better than the 15 mpg that I currently get.

Review

I have only had this truck a few weeks but I have always wanted an F150. This is one tight truck. 10 times better than the Dodge Ram, my last truck. 92,000 miles and just as tight as my fiancees '05 Pontiac. Third door is great! Fuel economy is a little poor but it's a truck, get over it! 4.6L is still a very strong motor. I have no use for the 5.4L.


Favorite Features

3rd door, 4x4, style is second to none.
