1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab SB


Most reliable, trustworthy vehicle I have ever owned. As original owner and at 165K, I have had less than $1,000 in repairs in 8 years. Maintenance costs have been very reasonable. Mine is a manual with V6 -- gets about 17 mpg city & 20 mpg highway. Highly recommend this over the Silverado. Still has tight steering, great suspension, great ride, no rattles -- after many camping trips on unmaintained roads.

Best Features

The '98 extended cab seats fold into a flat platform -- great place for dogs and cargo.

Worst Features

It's a truck. Can I ask for 30 mpg?
