Have had my second F-150 for a year now
and can't say anything bad about it.
Pulls 6,000 lb boat with ease, handles
the snow like it's dry asphalt, and
looks great while doing it.
Recently challenged the safety claims
and must say that the poor bumper
review does not apply. I ended up
sideswiping a small coupe that was in
my blind spot at about 30 mph. Took out
the whole side of the car (about $3,000
worth) and the damage to the
truck....none. I ended up hitting the
side of the car with my front bumber
and the only damage was a streak of
blue paint, which buffed out in 2 min.
UNBELIEVABLE!I love this truck!
Tows like a champ
Good MPG for a full size truck
Looks good (the last year before they
changed to the boxy body)
I traded a 2000 C1500 Silverado in to
try my first Ford pickup. For the few
weeks I've had it, I love it. Although
the horsepower is much less than my
Chevy (231 vs. 270), it still drives
great. The interior look and feel are
better than the Chevy, and the
ride/transmission is much smoother too.
We'll see if I end up a true convert.
My Dad retired from General Motors so I
could have bought any GMC at a
discount. Thought I would try the Ford.
Supercrew 4-door; high ride; smooth
shifting and easy steering; great
stereo and comfortable seats. I like
the look of the truck from the side.
It doesn't matter now because the
2004's are out. I would have suggested
better mileage and having a ribbed
steering wheel-my hands slip easily
when turning corners.
I needed something that had enough
room to haul a family as well as haul
other miscellanous junk we as
homeowners seem to collect over the
course of a year. The Ford F-150
Supercrew 2wd was exactly the vehicle I
was looking for. I opted for the 5.4L
V8 engine instead of the 4.6L. The 5.4L
just gives the vehicle that added push.
If you are going to get the F-150 go
for the gold and get the bigger V8.
My favorite feature is the overall
roomiest of the cabin.
