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
leg room. I am 6 foot 3 inches and I
am very comfortable in this truck..
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
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!
The 4.6 V8
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.
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.
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.
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
The 4.2 Liter has some guts but not
quite like the 300 ci inline 6 cyl.
However, it has done everything I've
asked of it including pulling 2 very
large Quarter Horses in a 3000 lb.
trailer. Off-road this truck will go
almost anywhere and I mean anywhere-
The 4 wheel drive ability and the
overall durability of the truck inside
The truck was great for the first 650
miles with no problems. I am not too
happy about the body design and the
fact that it is a Ford, since I have
had problems with Fords in the past. At
720 miles the oil pressure switch broke
and was replaced by the dealer at no
charge.... hopefully this is the first
and last thing to break for a while.
The truck has comfortable seats and a
powerful interior fan. The V6 delivers
plenty of power when the truck is empty
with good gas mileage (18-21mpg avg).
The clutch pedal is very hard to reach,
while I feel too close to the gas and
brake pedal. (I am 5'8). The mirrors
are WAY too small for the truck.
Larger side rear view mirrors would be
a huge improvement to the truck.
