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


(xlt 2wd flare side 4.6 v8 4sp automatic )
Bought new in 97; love her. Did have problem with a blockage in oil pan that caused the engine to lock up around 90k mi. (factory fluke) Ford was a dick about it, but has still been good truck. She has had her share of small problem from parts breaking from old age. The transmission sucks and has now power in 2nd and I wish I could change that, but still going with around 200000 miles on her. Truck gets around 14.5 in city and 17.5 on highway. She got rear ended on may 8th, totaled, or I would driver her into the ground. Not a fan of the gas mileage, but would take her over another truck.

Best Features

This truck was well thought out from interior to outside. great looking. comfortable. reliable.

Worst Features

Needs more get up and go. better six speed trany. better rear end. and could use some better gas mileage, but she gets better mpgs that my buddies trucks.
