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.
Moonroof, power adjustable pedals, self leveling sound system.
In dash six CD changer, power rear window and better mpg.
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!
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?).
Comfortable seats, terrific ride, solid build from Virginia assembly plant, great visibility, powerful engine.
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.
This vehicle has been mostly to my liking. The small v-8 has plenty of power for day to day driving. Towing up to the Ford-recommended limit is adequate but the engine complains. Knew this going in, that 95% of my driving would be non-towing. Overall mileage an honest 16 to17 mpg. Trade-off made sense to me. Computer engine control system is balky and produces knocking regardless of load or fuel grade. Not a serious problemm, just an annoyance that must be accepted as part of the engineered-in compromised characteristic of the smaller engine. The 17 inch wheels produce a very comfortable ride. Excellent road travelling car: have put most of the mileage on travelling all accross the country.
