2002 f150 5.4 200k
this truck is good
bought it with high miles
its pretty fast but lack power when towing heavy things although the mpg is great for a 5.4 6000lbs truck around 17 mpg city and highway
all highway i once did around 21-22 mpg
real low cost maintenance so far brakes,battery,sparkplugs one bad COP
front rotors are warped but their originals
drove it 24 hours non stop just to refil and eat and had no problems
drove it in mountains area and had no lack of power
great truck overall could not ask for more now i want a mustang to cruise around
You can ask anyone that has owned a F150 and they will tell you that nothing compares. I have owned many cars, trucks, and vans over the years, but the F150 is by far the best one! My truck is 11 years old now and is in mint condition. I just do regular maintenance and the truck just never stops running. It is very reliable and easy to work on.
I have used it as a daily commuter and the other day I decided to take it off roading and it handled the ruff terrain very well.
Before I bought the truck, I drove my Dad's F150 one day while visiting and ever since that moment I have been in love.
Roomy, tough suspension, easy handling, drives the same whether you drive on the road or on the dirt, very easy to work on.
My truck turned 11 years old this year and is still running great! My brother had this truck before me and ran it out of fuel several times so i had to replace the fuel pump. Other than that, just routine maintenance, spark plugs, and one spark plug coil. Truck has ENOUGH power seeing as i dont tow anything, and has never left me stranded, even after driving it 13 hours straight. All original suspension. 120k miles.
Bought this Supercrew new in the fall of 2002 for a great deal of $21900.
They were making room for 2003 models.
Had electronic console problem but fixed under warranty.
Then later in years had recurrent problem with electronics, that local shops would keep replacing GEM to fix temporarily.
Finally took it to dealer and they found a leak in the windshield seal that was allowing water into fuse box and GEM.
Once that was fixed, no more issues!!
Mechanically, AC, transmission always have worked great.
Plan to keep on driving for years to come.
Was attracted by truck and 5 passenger vehicle all in one, but not in a monster truck size.
Love the 4 solid cup holders around the center console.
Kids have AC adapter in back.
Comfy ride, room back seat with full sized doors.
Obviously with rising gas prices, mpg improvements would be good.
But is comparable to other 8 cyl trucks.
Bought it for about $30k. I've had it for 8 years and 205,000+ miles. Pulled horse trailers up to 7000#. Probably have put over 60k miles towing loads. Have had both the transmission (probably didn't need to do it) and rear end rebuilt. Replaced about 6 of the coil packs. Replaced the leather on the front seats. Replaced the front rotors 3 times. On the 4th set of tires. Total repair costs about $5k. Overall I've been very satisfied. Burns about 1.5 quarts of oil every 3000 miles. Never has left me high and dry except when a battery went dead. It's been a great truck for what I've asked of it.
Ride and interior.
Coil packs go out to often. Mileage at 14 mph could be better. Maintenance manual should require changing the rear differential fluid on occasion. Passenger window rattles...can't get anyone to fix it.
