Well rounded vehicle

2000 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab LB
This is a truck with a luxury car ride. It is quiet, reliable and attractive. The engine, while not the most powerful, is quite powerful enough. I upgraded to a K&N air filter and the throttle response improved dramatically. I have changed the front brakes 4 times but that isn't too crazy. When the stock tires wore out I upgraded and the handling is incredible. The only problem I have is if the roads are icy it, like any pick up truck, has a tendency to slip and slide.
Comfortable, responsive relaxing ride with great visibility.
Larger front disks/pads for longer life. I get +/- 14MPG city and <20MPG highway. 96,000 miles @ 15mpg = 6,400 gallons used. 6,400 gallons X $2.25/gallon (I'm in California) = $14,400 spent on fuel in 6 years or $2,400 per year. Larger front disks/pads for longer life.
