1997 Ford F-150 Lariat 3dr Extended Cab SB


I leased this pickup in 1999 when it
was 2 years old with 22000 miles. One
week after I brought it home it started
to run poorly, spew fumes and smoke,
after 3 visits to the dealer (each time
telling me that it was the O2 sensor)
they finally changed the ECU. It
immediately started running perfectly
and I have had no trouble since. Ther
is little to no maintenance required.
Just change the oil and put in gas. I
liked it so much that I bought it
outright at the end of the lease. I
plan on keeping it until one of us
kicks the bucket. Chances are I will go

Best Features

I really like the interior. The leather is the best I have ever owned in any vehicle. I also like the Ford dependabilty. I hve carried over a ton of brick in it an it didn't even break a sweat.

Worst Features

FOrd has already made the change I would like most to their newer models. The 4 door extended cab would be my only wish. The 3rd door can be a little difficult since it opens in the opposite direction.
