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

Review

I pretty much like everything except the gas mileage. Whoever "designed" the turn signal stalk should be fired - unless the steering wheel is centered +/- a few degrees, the turn signal detent won't hold. Ford lied about cooling package but when faced with lawsuit came up with a deal (I took the $100 cash).

Favorite Features

Power captain's chairs are nice seats, but then they should be for the $900 I had to give for them. I like the low end torque on the 5.4L Reliability is good so far. This is a comfortable truck.

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage sucks big time. Terrible throttle lag when "punching" the throttle when in motion - launch from standing start is OK. Clear coat finish easily dissolved by bird poop. Wheels hard to clean due to brake pad dust. Back seat too small for an adult. Stereo not very good.
