2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew Lariat Rwd Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Love this truck . Bought it used with 158k on it . Previous owner was meticulous with it . Amsoil and filter oil changed every 7k miles . Interior is roomy and comfortable . Design is blah , very plain . Like GM and Dodge cockpits better . Have an Slt Lariat Crew cab . have a KN cold air intake ( installed by previous owner ) but I am troubled by the gas mileage . I drive about 70 mph on the highway with cruise constantly . I am only getting 14 and change per gallon . Whats going on . Previous owner swears he was getting 15-18 depending on howhe drove. I do not get into the gas and rarely go over 2k on the tach . Any suggestions ?have the 5.4


Best Features

2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew Lariat Rwd Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Previously I owned a 2002 Chevy
TrailBlazer SLT. I found
towing my 16ft. aluminum boat on a
steep grade to be rather poor with the
(15.8 MPG Hwy) 5.4 ltr V8. Chevy's 4.2
inline 6 cylinder would have dragged
this boat to the top while
accelerating.

I also found the Lariat package of my F-
150 to be rather lack luster. No heated
seats nor the simplisity of a pocket on
the back of the front seats. There's no
storage room! For the price of this
vehicle and the top-of-the-line Lariat
package, it should have been much more.


Best Features

Other than the rugged body construction and durability, there are no features that I particuarly like. '


Worst Features

Fire the designers and get some that can actually design. Upgrade the interior without increasing price. Create some storage areas, copy GM or Dodge.

Review

I have the 5.4 V8, Tow, Moonroof, power
rear window, 6 disk in-dash, and
purchased for 28K. Now at 3500 miles
there are no rattles,squeaks or wind
noise. Alignment is perfect. The ride
is firm. Interior quality is excellent.
The seats have been raised 2-3 inches
from previous models. I am relatively
short (5'7") My feet just touch the
floor. The seats took some getting used
to. Low mounted door arm-rests not
practical due to tall seats. Engine
power is very adequate. I tow a 5,500lb
boat frequently. This truck accelerates
well with or without boat in tow. Truck
does not deserve "suggish" ratings.
Excellent quality and good performance
for the price.


Best Features

My favorite features are the 5.4 V-8, Sunroof, and power rear window. In the Supercab and larger trucks, the old style manual sliding rear windows were hard/ dangerous to reach from the drivers seat. Now they are practical and safe to use.


Worst Features

Raise the door arm rest or put back the older style door pull- handle. The pillar mounted grab- handle is intrusive. Make more like the 2000 Expediton models. Transmission whine very noticeable at lower highway speeds. (45-60) mph. Ruins otherwise quiet cabin.

Review

Initial gas mileage high but leveled
off. Had a problem with passenger door
rattling, but other than that I have
had an overall good experience so far


Best Features

adjustable pedals and powere rear slide window as well as the signals on the mirrors


Worst Features

For the money spent on my Lariat I would have expected a navigating system of some sort, as well as rear AC.
