1998 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB

Review

Up until now I have been a flat out GM man all the way. I desided to take a chance on Ford, since I've had them as service vehicles for years. When I bought this truck it had 85000 miles, it now has 102000 miles. Even with the high mileage this truck is great. Very tight and sound. No squeaks, rattles, and other annoying noises. Haven't had one bit of trouble. I will definately be considering Ford as well as Chevy for my next truck purchase. P.S. I hear a lot of complaining about gas mileage. I have a 4.6L and average about 17mpg highway, which I believe is very good for a pickup.

Review

i bought this vehicle from my friend who was moving but had bought his truck 6 months earlier.It has bad fuel mileage and I already had to get a new power steering pump and I had to get a newfan belt.It just isnt performing the way a 1998 truck should .I wouldnt recommend this vehicle to anyone that doesnt like sitting on the side of the highway waiting for road side assistance.I just sold the truck and I will never buy another one in my life.

Reliable truck

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

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.

1998 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB

Review

It seems to be a nice truck,rides very nice and smooth even with large tires and not have road noise from the tires. Power locks and windows and remote control mirrors are already in. I'm concerned about the milage averaging about 18600 per year.

I bought my 1998 NASCAR edition new, after 3 1/2 years all I have replaced is the temp control knob. This is the best built truck I have ever owned

Awsome truck

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

Review

Had this truck for not even two years. I have decided I wouldn't give it up for the world. Already moved across country and had to tote over 7000 lbs worth of households. No problems what so ever. I have been hit once which most would consider totalled, but she is still running strong. Beautiful truck with great power. If you can get past the gas mileage, this is the best truck to look into.

Another F150

1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab LB

Review

This has been another good Ford truck for me I bought my first in 1974 after driving Chevy's. This F150 has everything that I wanted except an anti slip rear end. I have driven 63K miles and done the routine maintence and never had a problem, the small V-8 could get better milage but 17-19 mpg isn't that bad. The paint has held up well and the interior is fine.

A REAL truck!!!!!
By Jasonmonroe on 08/10/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

I purchased this truck in late 2001 with 61K miles, and now it's 8/02, and I only have 66K miles...so I don't drive much. But I can tell you it's the best truck I've ever had or seen. Tons of power (especially torque), the stereo sounds great, more room than anyone would ever need, quality built with awesome styling, and a super comfortable ride. Add a flowmaster exhaust system, and the sound of the 5.4L Triton really comes to life! Other full size trucks have their positive points, but I'll take my Ford anyday. You wouldn' beat it! Quality is STILL job 1 at Ford.
