1999 Ford F-150 Extended Cab XLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

My F150 has been a big letdown. I didn't expect a perfect truck, but come on, Ford quality stinks. I paid $27,000 for my Sport 4X4. I got (all within 3 years): 1. A front bumper rusting - Ford fixed. 2. Side step rails rusting - Ford replaced. 3. Inside of all doors at bottom rusted - Ford repaired. This winter had to remove rust and fix myself or doors would be damaged badly if I waited for spring. The doors still have me worried. 4. Back window now leaks. 5. The front brakes (I do my own) had rusted rotors (after 2 years); that amazed me. 6. I have that faint fatigue crack on the doors from the windows pushing up and causing a crack. Future problem! 7. My back bumper has rust bubbles now.


Best Features

The truck looks great. Runs good when all of the cylinders are working. The CD changer works well.


Worst Features

Quality, the rust on the body parts. The frame, brake lines, everything that faces the road rusts, rusts and rusts.

Review

I bought the truck with 20,000 miles in 2000 and 4 years later have 117,000. It has the 4.6L V-8 that has adaquate power but gas mileage has been around 14 mpg with local driving. Overall, the truck rides well and has been very dependable. I did have to get the transmission rebuilt at 100,000 miles which set me back $1900 but otherwise the truck has required little maintenance and still runs and rides very well. I plan to keep it several more years.


Best Features

Split rear window, 4 doors, ride quality


Worst Features

The brakes are weak. Wish it had 4 wheel discs

Review

My truck has the 4.2 V6. For towing
you definetly need the V8. The good
news is my fuel economy is 19.7 on the
freeway and 15.5 city. Not bad for a
full size truck. Very reliable to
drive and very comfortable for a
familly of 4 when traveling. I would
tell anyone to buy one for a second or
even a first familly vehicle.


Best Features

Great veiw with no blind spots. Low cost of maintenance.


Worst Features

Offer a V8 with the 5 speed manual transmission.

Review

This truck has been a great one to
own, but I am ready for something that
gets a little better gas mileage. The
only problem I have had with the truck
is Ford brakes. This is the second
Ford I have owned and had the same
issues with both vehicles.


Best Features

4x4 capabilities, great looks, reliability


Worst Features

Back seat is cramped, and fix the brakes.

Review

This is my favorite ford of the 5 I
have owned, all 150 and 250 4x4's.
However this is the most expensive
truck I have owned. I have replaced
the auto tranny, head gaskets,
instrument cluster, both power door
lock units and after several attemps to
correct the left rear wheel locking up
when applying a cold brake, i just gave
up. It will turn heads and is a
pleasure to drive when not driving the
the local dealer service department!
Oh, the top of the engine makes too
much noise on a cold start.
