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
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.
I love this truck. Never left me on the side of the road. Everything still original, except for tires. Still has original battery and shocks even. Had a 100,000 mile tune up done recently, which cost a bit (included engine flush, transmission flush and coolant flush), but nothing needed replacement. I expected something to be worn or borderline, but it got a clean bill of health. I plan on passing it along to my daughter for her first vehicle and getting another newer model.
Very low noise in the cab. Handles like a luxury car. Light in the rear, but most trucks are. I'm getting 19.5 MPG HW and 18 City at 115,000 miles. With today's fuel cost, that's good news.
From what I see on the newer models, I cannot think of a thing to improve on. If the newer models hold up as well as this and drive as good as or better, I will be satisfied (once I get over the sticker shock of the newer models).
Bought the truck from Palmetto in Miami, with 20,000 miles on it, untitled, salesman's demo. We are very rough on interiors. (Kids,dogs,motorcycle dirt)and after 120,000 miles it is still in very good condition, no rips. The paint is still almost perfect and very shiny. The seats are very comfy for grown-ups and kids...full back seat. Back seats fold down, some storage behind seats. Good ride. One of the best vehicles we have ever owned.
Comfy seats. Full back seat, not a 'half seat' like some others. Doors open wide. Fairly quiet for a big truck. Pretty smooth ride.
Center rear shoulder belt, this may be available in the newer models.
