2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT 2WD Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

15 visits to dealer for repair in 3 years. Transmission thud with 2-1 downshift, replaced rear end, still whines, bad seals and compressor in air conditioner, bad sparkplug coil, drivers seat problems. Worst vehicle I have ever owned. Traded for a Honda Pilot. Glad to be rid of it. Don't buy a Ford unless you want to get to know the service department personnel really well.


Favorite Features

5.4 L engine.


Suggested Improvements

Ford should really improve the quality of their vehicles.

2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew Lariat 4WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

For the most part I've been happy with the truck. Bought new from dealership. Gas mileage poor in town but on the road I usually get around 16 mpg. 4WD probably has a lot to do with the poor mileage in town? My biggest complaints are front tire wear and a rather noisy rattle in the front passenger door. Have had the door panel off twice to correct. Other than what Ford charges for service of the truck it's been a great ride. I would buy a a new one if I had the bucks.


Favorite Features

Moonroof, power adjustable pedals, self leveling sound system.


Suggested Improvements

In dash six CD changer, power rear window and better mpg.

Review

Pretty much trouble free since new. Check engine light came on at about 10,000 miles and was repaired promptly. Needed front brakes at 25, 000 miles. Goodyear tires have poor wet traction.


Favorite Features

Optional captain chairs are worth the price.


Suggested Improvements

None.

Review

I average 19 mpg with a 231 hp motor in a Supercrew truck. Other makes don't come close. It is very stylish and is extemely comfortable. I'm able to use it to transport people or make a run to the dump. Still have a lot of tread after 50,000 miles. Great truck!


Favorite Features

Sun roof.


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

Sturdy construction, good paint, terrific ride, nice visiblity, very poor gas mileage - probably due to the overdrive transmission which tends to "lockup" at about 45mph. It'll stutter and sputter until it gets up to 55ish. Lousy sound system. This truck really cruises the interstates though and is comfortable to drive. Air conditioner is pooping out (freon leaking?).


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, terrific ride, solid build from Virginia assembly plant, great visibility, powerful engine.


Suggested Improvements

Fix this transmission guys. It locks up at 45mph going into overdrive with rpm's dropping to about 1200. Smooths out at about 55mph with rpms above 1500. Air conditioner should last better for $1000 price tag. Work on the gas mileage.
