2004 Ford F-150 SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this truck with 40,000 miles on it. It is a nice looking truck but looks are deceiving. It drives nice and rides good but the motor went out at 86,000 miles. The 32 valve 5.4 triton is a total disaster V-8 design. The overhead cam wore a keeper off of a valve and it fell into the cylinder ruining the motor. I opted to buy a used engine and still spent over $3,000 getting it back on the road. Also, the rear suspension is soft for hauling heavy loads. Truck now has 107,000 miles on it and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Another thing the front end brake rotors are garbage. I finally went to a salvage yard and got a set off a 07 model and so far are much better quality.


Best Features

Overall appearance, ride, and quietness on the highway


Worst Features

New motor, Brakes, more comfortable seats, better rear suspension.

Review

I am a fan of Ford and I do enjoy my F150. However there has been some short cuts in the engineering of this truck. I've had issues with the window motors, warped exhaust manifolds, replacing brake rotors after 42K and the rear end binding around corners. However I've towed my boat from Seattle to Page, AZ and back with no problems.


Best Features

I enjoy so the layout of the interior controls. Every control seems to be right where I would have put it.


Worst Features

I would suggest Ford stop installing cheap window motors and figure out their rear end binding. I added a Flowmaster exhaust and it really brings the truck to life. I also added the Firestone airbags. They really help with the camper. Oh and ditch the OE tires. BFG AT KO's have been fantastic.

2004 Ford F-150 SuperCab 4dr SuperCab Lariat Rwd Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have driven Ford vehicles for the 20 years. I like the style, ergonomics, ride, dependibility of each Ford product I have owned. However, my F-150 Lariat Super Cab, 2wd,5.4liter V8 has been and still continues to be a lemon. From the very beginning it has had a bad viberation. I have had 5 sets of tires, three drive shafts, 2 rear pioion gears, trans.rebuilt new trans., 2,radio /6 cd changers, speaker problems, auto rear sildiging window. These were all while it was still warranty. Ford engineers even came from somewhere out of state to try to find the promblem. They can't find out what is wrong. Ford really let me down. I'm not aginst Ford prod. this one just not right from the start.


Best Features

Leathers seats, comfort, height, interior space is for dirve and passanger is very comfortable, sound system, (once repaired), auto drivers seat and pedal adjustment, keyless enrty, door key pad, instrument set up, all controls for dirver are comfortable reach, 18" wheels/tires


Worst Features

The standard jack calapsed the first time it was used. Needs a beefy jack for a beefy truck. Needs running boards, AC/vents need to be improved, while local driving the truck never gets cool and rear passangers never get cool/warm, storage under back seat to carry jump cables ,first aid kit, tools

Review

I bought this truck new and get lots of compliments on its looks. Almost 4 years and 37,000 miles, but plenty of issues. After having water leaking around the top of my rear window, and almost having it replaced, the guy who was working on it said, "I used to work at a Ford Dealer, and it isn't the window, it is the cargo lamp gasket". I then called a dealer to find out that you can't buy a gasket, only the complete unit for $54. I also have a problem with the outside mirror remote not working. Turns out the fuse box has a break in it somewhere and needs to be replaced, another $278 for the part. A few months ago, the drivers side window stopped working..$450 more.


Best Features

Looks of the vehicle. Rear seating with plenty of legroom.


Worst Features

Ford needs to improve their engineering and recall vehicles when they know they have produced deficient and defective parts for them.
