This truck has been great to me. Zero problems
mechanically, I've taken care of it myself and so far
so good. I drive it 20 miles round trip to work
every day, plus one or two 150 mile round trips
between San Antonio and Austin per week. I also
did a 3000 mile road trip with zero incidents. It's
on fuel economy (I have the 5.4l engine, expect no
better than 14 mpg) but the truck has given me no
problems. Don't expect neck snapping acceleration
with the 5.4l, but it does what it's supposed to.
4x4 works fine, drove in Minnesota snow and had
Reliability! Also ride comfort, quieter than average
road noise for a truck (but it's no Caddy). Does
everything a truck should do (tow, haul stuff in the
bed, etc.) The A/C is good even in TX in the
14 mpg is horrible, but you shouldn't expect much
more out of a 5.4 in a truck with the aerodynamics
of a bookcase. Other than that, I can't come up
with a single thing to gripe about.
