1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab SB


Since then, I've had several warning
lights burn out in the dash, the rear
leaf springs have broken twice (and no,
I haven't exceeded the manufacturer's
limits), a couple of engine electrical
glitches, malfunctioning factory alarm
system, occasional smoke on start-up,
and some brake problems.

Would I buy another Ford truck? Maybe,
but it would definitely be a new one,
to ensure maximum warranty duration to
iron out the glitches before it comes
out of my pocket...

Best Features

Nice styling, even if it's getting a little dated. Fairly strong engine, which gets decent gas mileage for 4,000lb vehicle.

Worst Features

Build reliability into the electronics systems!! The seats are not particularly comfortable for taller people--borrow Volvo's seat design--it is near perfect.
