2002 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT 2WD Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The transmission modulater is terrible. It hangs up in gears or just sits in a big dead spot and nothing changes. The dealer "pinged" the unit but other than that T.S. I had to accelerate quickly to complete a merge manuever and almost got hit because the transmission just refused to shift down quickly. Ford has had problems with this for years and there is no excuse for this. I'm getting rid of the truck.


Suggested Improvements

I hope the new models don't have this problem.

2002 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab SVT Lightning 2WD Flareside SB (5.4L 8cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I was totally happy with my purchase of this truck through a non SVT Ford dealer. The local SVT dealer manager was a pompus jerk and there is no way I would give him my business. Like the truck and look forward to buying the new 2004 edition with 500 HP!


Suggested Improvements

More Power - better transmission - 5 speed with quicker kick down. Lower the body on the frame - way too much room between the top of the tires and the wheel well opening.

love it. The truck is just what I needed and has proved trouble free since I have owned it. I would strongly suggest one if you are in the market.
