1997 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab SB


After reviewing this site for several vehicles I was looking at; I'm happy to say that I decided on the F-150. Granted I have only had this beautiful black truck for twenty-four hours! It has high mileage,154,000, but runs and handles real strong. My roommate has a Chevy Quad cab 4wd long bed which I enjoyed driving except it was hard to park and turn corners, but the truck was fun to drive. This truck gives me equal pleasure, with the added bonus of turning corners easily and ease of parking. The ride is smooth, and everything is working at this point. There is a worn ball joint that will need to be replaced soon. Will post again as my time grows with this truck.

Best Features

The ride, visibility, and comfort. Front end is solid and smooth, engine is a 302, and runs real strong. The overall looks are nice.

Worst Features

Fuel mileage, and wish they would have made it 4 door instead of just a 3 for the extended cab, oh well.
