1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab SB

Review

Since then, I've had several warning lights burn out in the dash, the rear leaf springs have broken twice (and no, I haven't exceeded the manufacturer's limits), a couple of engine electrical glitches, malfunctioning factory alarm system, occasional smoke on start-up, and some brake problems. Would I buy another Ford truck? Maybe, but it would definitely be a new one, to ensure maximum warranty duration to iron out the glitches before it comes out of my pocket...

Best Features

Nice styling, even if it's getting a little dated. Fairly strong engine, which gets decent gas mileage for 4,000lb vehicle.

Worst Features

Build reliability into the electronics systems!! The seats are not particularly comfortable for taller people--borrow Volvo's seat design--it is near perfect.
