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


Review

No complaints. Gas mileage is not great, but I didn't buy a truck expecting it. Back seat is very roomy. Bed doesn't fit long items, but in my case more seating was a priority. More than 20K miles and I have no regrets...yet.


Favorite Features

Hauls effortlessly, roomy interior, good sound system, lots of cup holders, extra power outlets and plentiful interior lights a plus.


Suggested Improvements

Better accessibility to tie downs in the bed.

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.

Review

Drives great. I've got the 2WD 4.6L V8 and it could use a little more power. Of course it is a gas guzzler as all large trucks are. No complaints. My F- 150 had a dealer installed moonroof which was wired incorrectly and I had to bring it back to get that fixed and they didn't do it correctly and ended up wiring it wrong again and a couple of months later the windows went out. This was all due to the dealer wiring the moonroof incorrectly in the first place.


Favorite Features

The Supercrew has a short bed, but comes with a Bed Extender. Great little gadget. Adds two feet to the bed length when you need it.

Review

My f150 dosen't like damp days. When in reverse it will stall out. Happens often. Wind noise is not good and gas milage terrible.(15mpg) It has a great look.


Favorite Features

Like the spot for garage door opener.


Suggested Improvements

Eliminate the stalling. Also retrain lube tech. Went to dealership for oil change and came home with interior oil and grease was not impressed.

Review

I've had my 2WD XLT Supercrew 4.6L for three months and love it. I prefer the exterior 03 design vs. the new 04 look and with the 5yr/0.0% payment option I got a great deal on a truck that is built on a proven manufacturing platform. I suggest the captains chairs with its "grand canyon" center console, the 6 disc CD that loads easily and the bigger tires P255/70R (the standard size tire on the 2WD is to small for the wheel wells). I was impressed with the amount of options that come standard with the truck.


Favorite Features

My short wife loves the ajustable foot pedals (great idea). I like all the standard options and the overall feel and comfort of the interior.


Suggested Improvements

Excessive brake dust on the front rotores. Why not add a bed mat as a standard option? Overall, GREAT JOB FORD!

Review

I have had numerous F-150's over the years, this one carries on the tradition of quality vehicles. The motor has plenty of pickup, nice bodystyle, easy to reach control panels. The only drawback so far has been erratic transmission shifting (has Ford ever made a decent transmission?).


Favorite Features

Body style, seat comfort, exceptionally smooth ride for a truck.


Suggested Improvements

Dashboard; difficult to enter truck without hitting knee on the wraparound.
