Not a Bad Truck
By Chris on
2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab Flareside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I am about to return this vehicle off a lease. I have put 60000km on it. The only thing it has needed was blower motor and a new Ford symbol on the front (from rock and salt). This truck otherwise has been reliable as hell. Although it is very slow off the line. I found it pulled just as hard with the a double snowmobile trailer loaded. Very bad fuel mileage with the trailer on.
Didn't have to take it to the shop every week for a check up. Pulled hard and was awsome in 3 feet of snow with trailer.
The power windows are very slow going up. Sometimes the lights brighten when I would shut the truck off (seemed odd). F-150 symbols paint falls off at the car wash. Happens on every one I have seen.
