by Happy Ford Owner on Nov 3, 2006 Vehicle: 2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XL Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
A great truck. I get 18 MPG around town which is fantastic for a full size truck. I have 55,000 miles on it & been to dealer only once for a tire wear issue. They aligned and gave me 2 new tires at 12,000 miles. Rides and handles great, seats are comfortable. The 4.6 engine has plenty of power. I am thinking of trading for a 2007 Crew Cab. My 6'+ sons have outgrown the back seat.

The truck has the standard 4.6 that has good power and torque but could be better. It is an XL model but came with a lot of standard features. It is minimal but it's what I like. But with a family of five I have to make sure everyone is comfortable when we all have to go in it and it does that well. I have only had one issue and that was with the trailer wiring and I will have to pay for that one myself because I didn't discover the defect until after the warranty expired! A longer warranty period would be nice. Overall it has been over 52,000 uneventful miles. I am planning my next Ford truck purchase and it will be an F250 or 350.

First I was planning to buy a car but
then I saw the oppurtunity to buy a
truck around the same price of a car
and decided to go with the truck. I
made a great choice. I am really happy
with this truck; don't plan on selling
it anytime soon

The 2004 F-150 is an excellent truck
whether for basic needs or for heavy
duty work. This is my first truck, was
thinking about a Ranger, but believed I
wasn't going to get my money's worth.
With the new F-150, I am confident this
will last for years to come.

The new F-150 is a fantastic vehicle. So
was my '92 F-150, but this new model has
a tremendous ride, smooth powerful
powertrain, and very comfortable
interior, even in the XL trim.
But the best thing about it is that Ford
didn't forget that a truck has to work.
It is beefy in all the right areas, like
the bed and the frame, and tows very
well, especially with the limited slip
rear axle option and the towing package
option (highly recommended).
Great job Ford!

I really do not need a truck which is
what I found out about an SUV and this
fresh looking vehicle seemed the place
to start to see if truckdom will work
out.If it does not at least it will
have some residual value come time to
sell.I've not had it long enough to
tell any tales yet.My first Ford and
based on the wife's experiences with
her 2 Escapes I'm more concerned with
customer service and support which has
been miserable for my wife.
