2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
This truck is a huge disappointment. With all the hype, I just can't see it. The engine runs like crud. It won't idle. The gas mileage is horrible. It has the power but there is no throttle response. CPU programming they tell me. Then fix it! The drive by wire was a mistake. Ford used to have the best cruise control in the business. Now, because of the lack of throttle response, there is a significant lag. The air conditioning is only cool, not cold! Again they say CPU programming. Also, I'd like to shoot the guy that thought up the deeper bed. You can't reach into it. They seem to be trying to phase out the SuperCab longbed and shortbeds are useless so they make deeper beds instead.
It does handle waaay better than the old one. The interior is much more comfortable also.
Lower the bed height back to the way it was. Bring back the throttle cable or fix it so it works because it doesn't!
