2003 Ford F-150 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought a 2003 XL Sport with with all
the options that come on an XL. The 5-
spd mated to the 4.2 makes a good
combo. The truck is surprisingly quick
and handles well for a pickup. The ride
leaves somthing to be desired but isnt
bad on the highway. The truck has been
very reliable with no problems. Ford
has stuck by their warranty and my
dealership was great.


Best Features

5-spd, reliability, towing capacity (Pulled a 5000lb truck 150 miles through hills with no problem at all)


Worst Features

ride is too stiff and bouncy, could be tires more than anything

2003 Ford F-150 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this truck mainly to commute
to work, with the occasional bed
hauling duty in mind. I was surprised
to see that the truck would actually
get 20 mpg if I watched the right
foot. It is the 4.2 liter six so it
does not have the oomph of the V8's
Ford offers but for my use the 6 is
more than adequate. The tranny shifts
smoothly and operates seamlessly.
I recently drove from Houston, TX to
Salem, OR in 3 days and was surprised
at the trucks willingness to provide
comfort and considerable control over
all road surfaces as very little of the
trip was taken on the interstate. I am
pleased with this truck and would
gladly buy it all over again.


Best Features

Flareside styling, especially the transition from fenders to rear bumper.The fold down center console. The extra room behind the seats.

Review

I coould not ask for much more out of
a truck. It is a blast to drive.
Quiet and smooth. The only thing I
would improve on is the gas mileage,
at 1.70 a gallon it is punching
through the wallet quick. Great truck


Best Features

leg room. I am 6 foot 3 inches and I am very comfortable in this truck..


Worst Features

fuel economy

Review

It didnt have the trim option
avaliable for my truck so I chose the
closest thing. My truck is a XLT,
regular cab, short bed, 4.6 V8, and an
auto tranny.

This by far is my favorite vehicle, it
is very comfortable and the design is
exellent. The engine is also very
powerful and when you step on the gas,
it really goes!


Best Features

The 4.6 V8


Worst Features

I got everything I wanted in that truck, sure I could have bought a more expensive trim but for what I paid I got everything I wanted and more.

Review

This is my second F150, and this is
also my second great experience with
Ford trucks. Why buy a compact truck
when for the same money you get a
heavy duty truck with twice the cab
room and payload. It rides like
sedan, and gets you to 75 mph (only
the 6) with no problems. Of course, I
wish the milage was the same as my Rav
4, but you can't have everything, at
least not in the 03 model.


Best Features

The ride is great and I think the power is excellent for a 6 cyl. Like a SUV, you sit higher and feel safer and incontrol on the freeway.


Worst Features

25 mpg would be the way to go, vice the current 20 mpg. If Ford could take the lead on improved MPG on their full size truck, they could not make enough to satisfy the American truck buyer.
