2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

yes, mileage not so good, but it is heavy. 16 mpg highway, 14 city, less in the winter. Towing 6k pound trailer on highway 13 mpg, not too bad considering total weight over 13k pounds with people/gear. Sad to hear of other peoples problems, but at 37k miles been perfect, not a thing wrong. No wet carpet, 3rd brake light fine no leak, rear window no squeak.


Favorite Features

the ride for a 6k pound beast. Exterior styling I still like better than '10+ model. would definitely buy again.


Suggested Improvements

should have had more amenities: under seat storage, usb input on radio. Also should have had 5 or 6 speed trans, but 4 speed with lockup hauls 6k pound trailer up interstate hills at 70mph without downshifting, cool.

2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. LB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Overall great truck. 5.4 has plenty of power. The only thing wrong with the motor is the fact the Motorcraft spark plugs are 2 piece that sit about an inch farther in the head than they are supposed to and break off in the cylinder heads when carbon surrounds them. You can purchase a tool to remove them but beware if something happens its CHEAPER to take it to the dealer to have them changed. Champion makes a one piece plug that isn't supposed to break. Oh, and the plugs run about $20 a piece. Interior is roomy, Seats are normal ford seats. Seemed like i was running through a quart of transmission fluid every 5000 miles after a bottle of Lucas Transmission Conditioner it stopped.


Favorite Features

interior room, power, body styling


Suggested Improvements

Fords STUPID design of the cylinder heads and spark plugs

2006 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had this truck for almost 4 years and have 65K miles on it. The only issues I have had are the F-150 emblems peeling and the 3rd brake light leaking. Brakes are still good and I haven't had any maintenance issues at all. The mileage averages about 14-15 and horrible (about 9) when towing, although this is expected for a gasoline engine. The ride is very comfortable and actually quieter and a bit smoother than my wife's Infiniti. I would buy again if asked!


Favorite Features

Ride comfort is excellent. Really wouldn't think you are in a truck. Also like the comfort and room the interior offers.


Suggested Improvements

It is a bit sluggish on acceleration, but it is a truck, so not a huge deal. Improve the emblems, both F150s I have owned had this issue.

Review

I had always been a GM guy till the bailout, thought I would try Ford. Reviews, awards, Consumer Reports, all stated Ford where the better vehicle. Mine is not. Although happy with the interior and overall ride of the truck, the reliability is not there. I have had it to the dealer 4 times in 9 months. Nothing major but you do the math. I want to like this truck but the veridct is still out.


Favorite Features

interior comfort, styling


Suggested Improvements

MPG, and the fit and finish need work

Review

I was very surprised with how roomy the interior is for the size truck. The seats are pretty comfy and are very accommodating HOWEVER they stain VERY easily and it is hard to it out. I have had this ford for 23k miles and I have noticed a few disheartening issues. 1)always seems to be a quart low on oil. 2) always smells of hot brakes and burnt oil after even a 40 mile drive. 3)Bed liner is cheap! 4)Always has a shutter/ticking while at slow speeds along with a clunking sound when accelerate from a stop as the weight shifts. 5)THE GAS MILEAGE STINKS!even when i was hauling a refrigerator my mileage was pathetic! I have the 5.4L but I would still not expect the mileage to punk out that bad!


Favorite Features

Solid feeling product. Great styling. Smooth drive. VERY ROOMY! TOUGH TRUCK! LOVE THIS TRUCK!!!!!


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage OR better engine that will need less power to get the job done. More upgrades in the XLT. Better bed liner. More durable engine/brakes for the long haul
