2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew XLT 2WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


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.


Best Features

Optional captain chairs are worth the price.


Worst Features

None.

2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew Lariat 2WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


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!


Best Features

Sun roof.


Worst Features

None

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


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?).


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Excellent, comfortable, stable ride. Quiet. Nice visibility forward.


Worst Features

Bigger mirrors, better placement of door-lock switches in a position less vulnerable to inadvertant locking.

2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD Flareside SB (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Except for a bad experience with the dealer this truck is excellent so far. Purchased it from the lot; the truck had 600 miles already on it but so far no problems.


Best Features

I like the powerful engine and pulling power the most, and the soft ride on trips and it has a great sounding stereo system too.


Worst Features

The only improvement I would like is air ride suspension and an electric window behide the rear seats.
