2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

19K miles and vehicle stalls. Had it brought in to dealer in Lafayette, said no problem existed. 3 months later, vehicle stalls and towed back to dealer. Fuel Pump, Fuel Regulator all need to be replaced. Informed my Service Manager that is normal wear/tear for fuel pump and regulator. $1500 to replace. Called Ford, no help. Once out shop, vehicle start problems. Im so MAD. Ridiculous pump going out, and I average 5k miles per year. Was told that was the reason for pump failing, lack of driving. So if you buy a Ford, ask how long its been on lot, so say the fuel pump/regulators go out if they sit


Favorite Features

Chrome Package, Auto Rear Sliding Window


Suggested Improvements

4.6 on Supercab SB is weak. AC needs a boost. Wheres the auxillary jack for my ipod. Quality of product, dealership care, Ford customer care are all questionable now to me

Review

If you are reading this and haven't checked, pull back your carpet in the front and see if it's wet, mine was soaked! After a recent heavy storm, I had to use a shop vac to pull the water out of the channels holding the wiring harness under the kick plates at the entrance to both driver and passenger doors. I've read where these king cabs have a big problem with water leaks that may go un- noticed until you start smelling mildew. The third brake light has a history of leaking on most years of these trucks. The water runs down channels from the light toward the front floorboard soaking everything underneath. Also, there have been other reports of the air conditioning condensor vent leaking


Favorite Features

Comfort and ride is great. I like the visibility I have which my previous Toyota Tacoma did NOT have. I have the 5.4 engine and it has good power although not as much as my 2003 Dodge Ram 4.7 had. I'm hoping the dealer can find the source of the water leak because I love driving it.


Suggested Improvements

Ford has known about these water leaks for several years and have done nothing to correct it. The engine needs more torque and a gas mileage of at least 18-22 average. Also needed is less plastic in the passenger compartment. Too many squeeks and rattles that I have managed to reduce with padding

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


Review

I purchased this truck because I have to haul a large boat. I had a Chevy Tahoe that just didn't haul it well. This truck is awesome for hauling and room. I've had people who have never been in a large truck comment on how much room and comfortable both front and back seats are. The Lariat package is nice with all the toys. It rides nice for a truck and handles better than the suv I had. The standard tires are bad, I'm going to replace those before winter. I little more HP would be ok too


Favorite Features

Looks and features. Very well done and no major problems. I'm a firm believer in preventative maintanence so I change oil every 2K and have it looked at each oil change to see if anything is acting up. Nothing yet


Suggested Improvements

More HP and better gas mileage but I know I'm dreaming.

Review

I'm on my 3rd Ford truck. 2 Rangers, and now the F-150. I've owned my last 2 for at least 5-7 years, and NEVER had a single problem. I've over exceeded weight capacities, towed, hauled, even pulled tree's out of the ground! This F-150 is powerful enough, sharp looking, and more comfortable than my Rangers. I can only agree with other reviews that the A/C is weak, and I live in southwest Florida. So far averaging the SAME mileage with this 5.4L as I did with my 3.0 supercab Ranger! It also has enough back seat room for the baby seat. If I have the same luck with this 5.4L, 4 door supercab as I did with my Rangers, then I'm sticking with the Fords!


Favorite Features

Looks, ride, power, room, and 16MPG CITY isn't bad!


Suggested Improvements

A/C needs to be better.
