Used 2000 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning Regular Cab Consumer Reviews
Have had some paint problems with the truck (covered,repaint)Black. Have gone thru the 100K mi. todo list all ready. Two recalls on the truck, intercooler and the cruse control. Did go thru a set of tires. But, upgraded the exterior with 04' stying while changing tires, from signal mirrors to the wheels. Added Ram air hood to help the gas mileage. Anywhere from 9/12 city - 15/18 on open road. Very happy with it.
I rate this truck as the best I have ever had, a few slight problems but NOTHING to stop me enjoying every minute in it, its a very USED truck in my stable-it never gets the chance to sit idle- I even use it as my towing vehicle for my show (I'm a travelling showman)... I use it mainly for fun, but the serious side of my business is "Colossus, The Jet Trike", you can see what I do for a living by going on "You Tube" and typing in "Colossus The Jet Trike"...This truck pulls a 2 ton trailer with my jet trike on it - like it does without it there!!! You want a REAL MANS TRUCK? - THEN THIS IS FOR YOU!!! If you want gas milage get a pretty little Honda or something...lol
cant wait for to buy a new one. no dissapointments except the gas milage, but hey if you cant afford the gas dont buy it.
I'm picking up my Silver 2000 SVT Lightning in a week after spending 3 days with the truck on an 'extended' test-drive from the Jerry's Ford. This truck is amazing. Power comes on in an incredibly smooth rush, it corners flat, and the massive Goodyear tires grip the road with tenacity. What I like best is that it's wild and fun enough to be my weekend toy, yet reliable and comfortable enough to be my daily ride. What's even more amazing about a performance truck, is that insurance rates are very reasonable and gas mileage is respectable when driven with the optional soft tonneau cover (14 city/20 highway). GREAT TRUCK!!!
This truck handles better than the same year Z28 (which I just sold). Acceleration is excellent; when the boost kicks in you better be holding on. I don't understand the towing package as being standard equipment. Other than that it is the highest quality vehicle I have owned.
