Same as most reviews. Ford has failed. Looks are great, but deceiving. Transmission issues from day 1 with same response from dealership, "couldn't find a problem". Now big problems post warranty. Rear differential - truck shudders upon takeoff from a turning start. 1st Ford needed new engine. Guess I'll buy foreign. So what if economy worsens and jobs are lost, atleast I'll have a truck that runs. Ford has lost all integrity

I use my truck to haul around horses on a weekly basis. I put 60k miles on my truck in the last three years with 30k being in the first year alone. Never once has it acted up, skipped gears or made me feel uncomfortable while pulling horses or a box trailer. My father put over 200k on his before he sold it for a new one and I will do the same. I have never driven a truck that can outperform a Ford.

This is my first pickup. Decided on
Ford F-150 due very positive reviews.
I was always a small car person but
this truck is an absolute pleasure to
drive. Still getting used to the size
and lower gas mileage though! The
build quality is superior to the Honda
Odyssey I bought two years ago,which we
still own and will keep for a while (I
drive the truck and gave my car to my
daughter). I shopped Chevy and Toyota
and in my opinion neither came close.
The Toyota had too many rattles right
off the lot and I have been burned too
many times by Chevy.

I would like to have the fender liners
inside the rear fenderwell of the
bed.They do have them on the 250
series.The Overdrive Button on shifter
is too easily, accidentily turned
off,should be more recessed.
