Dependable, tough, minor issues
By jeff on
2000 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
Bought new, now 82,000 miles (Driving this truck less now due to high gas prices). Only mechanical problem has been door actuators, which I have had to replace. Have used 4wd a lot with no problems. This has been a very reliable truck I can count on and even though is depreciating fast I have no plans to sell as long as it holds up. Rides like a big luxury car on highway. Is developing some rust at bottom inside of doors. Back seat is not comfortable for adults. Gas mileage is poor, 12/16.
Command of road, good handling, built Ford tough, reliable, hard to get stuck with LSD and 4wd
