Review of the 2004 Ford F-150

  • A class leader when it comes to ride, handling and hauling capability, but a little extra poundage and its lack of side airbags keep it from completely rolling over the competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Exceptional ride and handling characteristics, attractive and functional interior designs, multiple cab and bed configurations, most payload and towing capacity in the half-ton class.

  • Cons

    Feels sluggish even with larger V8, no available side airbags, not much interior storage space.

  • What's New for 2004

    The F-150 is fully redesigned for 2004. It's bigger, more powerful and offers a greater variety of features and body styles than ever before.

Best and worst truck i

04 f150 5.4 i love the looks of this truck. i love the drive and comfort of this truck, unfortunately i will probably never ever buy a ford again. This truck will cost you a fortune to keep\. first of all everything on this motor will tick or clack at some point. the cam phasers will without a doubt cost you 1800 to fix once or twice. Thank heavens they are 100000 mile spark plugs because they will cost you a min. of 800 to change. Ford will not even think about helping you with all the ticking until your factory or aftermarket warranty runs out.This was my fourth and last ford.

This truck has been most of the time a pleasure to own. Now have 256,000 miles on this truck. Has performed well with the exception of the famous spark plug issue. Dealer broke off two plugs had to pull head to repair. Very expensive experience. Dealer was not willing to accept the bulk of the expense. Have replaced rear axle seals. After this many miles should expect some repairs.

great truck! I have had zero problems on it and its up to 120000 miles the truck runs great and I have put it threw alot of junk. It does amazing in snow and I can count on it starting in - 30 degree temperatures. I will not get anything but another ford for my next vehicle, but i don't plan on it any time soon because this truck wont quit.




Great truck

I LOVE THIS truck. Much improved over an already great '03 F150. I like driving my '04 F150 better than I did my Cadillac that I traded in for it. Lacks a little in the "fast" category. But I didn't buy it to race. Love the design, very quiet inside.




Great truck - work or

I have owned many other trucks, but this is by far the most quiet, smooth, and comfortable vehicle I have ever owned (car or truck). The inside design is fantastic and my passengers have a tremendous amount of room and are truly impressed with the vehicle. I have hauled over 3700 pounds of brick pavers in the bed twice and the strength of this truck is impressive. My last Ford truck had 238,000 miles on it and I am confident this 2004 will be just as reliable and look just a nice when I trade it in many years from now.

This is a working fool. I towed a 20 foot U-haul trailer overloaded and got 14.5 mpg at 70 mph. It get about the same mileage working as not. This truck is great for camping and highway. We got 31" snow first year that I had the truck. As a Safety Manager and Accident Investigator, I can safely say this; with its long wheel base, wide stance and 4WD it is probably the safest winter vehicle on the road. Handles icy conditions when every other vehicle is spinning 180 degrees. Plus, it has a Five Star front crash rating.
