1999 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I am happy with my truck purchase. I researched the small & full sized trucks and had to consider the F-150 since it is the most popular vehicle ever built. The XL is the low end model but the interior is still quite nice. I have had to replace to ABS sensor for the rear brakes for about $21. No other problems yet. Seems very well built. I like the new F-150 also and may trade up in a year or two.


Best Features

Grill & hood lines. Factory bedliner. Advertising, Toby Keith Ford truck man commercial.

1999 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I bought the truck with 20,000 miles in 2000 and 4 years later have 117,000. It has the 4.6L V-8 that has adaquate power but gas mileage has been around 14 mpg with local driving. Overall, the truck rides well and has been very dependable. I did have to get the transmission rebuilt at 100,000 miles which set me back $1900 but otherwise the truck has required little maintenance and still runs and rides very well. I plan to keep it several more years.


Best Features

Split rear window, 4 doors, ride quality


Worst Features

The brakes are weak. Wish it had 4 wheel discs

Review

My truck has the 4.2 V6. For towing
you definetly need the V8. The good
news is my fuel economy is 19.7 on the
freeway and 15.5 city. Not bad for a
full size truck. Very reliable to
drive and very comfortable for a
familly of 4 when traveling. I would
tell anyone to buy one for a second or
even a first familly vehicle.


Best Features

Great veiw with no blind spots. Low cost of maintenance.


Worst Features

Offer a V8 with the 5 speed manual transmission.

Review

This truck has been a great one to
own, but I am ready for something that
gets a little better gas mileage. The
only problem I have had with the truck
is Ford brakes. This is the second
Ford I have owned and had the same
issues with both vehicles.


Best Features

4x4 capabilities, great looks, reliability


Worst Features

Back seat is cramped, and fix the brakes.

Review

I truly love my truck but the only
thing I can think of is my upper and
lower control arms are starting to pop
and I think that whould have been a
issue that should been handled from
the factory.


Worst Features

I think the V6 needs much more towing power.
