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


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.

Review

My truck generates the standard Ford problems annually. The 'hem' seam on all four doors developed rust (which Ford refused to fix as the rust did not perforate the metal), phantom windshield wipers (unfixed), coil pack failure (1) and air conditioner refrigerant leaks requiring annual recharge and also the famous Ford door crack above the intersection of the front and rear door on both sides. The irritation is that these problems are all reported but Ford refused to address the problems until (reportedly and time will tell) the 2004 redesign. How does one say "Cash Cow".


Best Features

Interior comfort; acceptable ride; electronic 4WD shift.


Worst Features

Manufacturer responding to customer 'quality' issues would be a refreshing change for Ford. Ford customer service is signficantly worse than that for my European sedan (both with similar MSRPs).
