1997 Ford F-150 Lariat 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I LOVE MY TRUCK. I bought it used with
79,000 mile on it, it now has 113,000
and I have not had 1 problem. I keep
the oil changed and have a K&N filter
on it. The only thing I would change is
the center console does not lock in the
down position. I call it my coffee
launcher. If you have a drink in the
center console and lean too much on the
back of it, it launches the drink all
over the back seat. I here they
corrected this problem in the later
models. I also wish that I had bought
the model with the 5.4 liter engine.
the 4.6 seems to be a bit weak for the
gas mileage that I get (around 12mpg).

Best Features

I think what I like about the truck the most is the way it looks. It's sharp, but yet mean all at the same time. the interior is very comfortible and layed nicely.

Worst Features

I do wish that I had an OH SH!T handle on the drivers side as well as the passenger side. I noticed that the newer ones do have this. And the center console does need to lock in the down position to keep from launching stuff. MORE POWER IS ALWAY NICE!
