I have enjoyed my Ford since I purchased it new in 08/05 for the most part.
However, I am completely frustrated with Ford's response to my complaints about what obviously is a flaw in the window regulators that were installed in this year and make.
I have replaced all 4 regulators/front and rear and Ford has accepted no responsibility. (replaced 2 in 2008, 1 in 2009, and 1 in 2011)
After searching the internet for similar complaints it appears the problem with the 2004 Ford F150 Supercrew is wide spread and Ford will do nothing.
$2000 in window repairs later, I will now consider a Chevy as my next truck purchase.
Ford has let me down by not standing behind their product and manufacturing.

It has been almost 7 years since I wrote a review on this truck in 2003. I had some starting off issues with it but let me tell you this truck has ended up being a trooper. It now has 126,891 miles on it and I love it. It is my baby. Sadly, I am having to sell it for financial reasons and it hurts. These trucks are pretty good in my opinion. The transmission actually worked the problem out itself. I have only replaced normal items that wear. The only issues I asked Ford to fix have already been addressed in the 2009 model. Looking at my old review, man have I changed for the better, and my F150 has been by my side the whole way. I thank the Lord for such a great truck!

The wind noise is excessive. I've had
the sliding back window replaced twice
and still problem exists. I cannot even
listen to radio or carry on a normal
conversation. I drive the truck 100
miles to work and back every day so it
is very dissapointing. I bought the
truck on Jan 1 and it has been in the
shop three times. It also has a
significant electrical burning smell
the dealer tells me is typical. I think
I got a lemon!

Well so far, the transmission has acted
up, been in the shop 3 times (curretnly
there) the tail light was replaced from
condensation, the window squeaks when
going down, it needed an allignment at
purchase, the plastic around the
steering column is warper(and on other
trucks too). This has been a nightmare
the worst Ford I have EVER owned. The
4.6 is way underpowered even for my reg
cab so i pity people with s/c's and
super crews. GOOD LUCK!
