Quality is an Issue
By FormerFordLover on
2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
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.
Looks of the vehicle. Rear seating with plenty of legroom.
Ford needs to improve their engineering and recall vehicles when they know they have produced deficient and defective parts for them.
