1999 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


Review

I love the looks I get in this truck. I
only wish the performance was as
awesome. Its not bad, but not as good
as I thought it would be knowing Fords
record for performance.


Best Features

The interior room is great for a regular cab pickup. The interior layout is driver friendly, and easy on the eyes. Plenty of storage space behind the seats, and in the center console.


Worst Features

Dont put the 4.2 liter in this truck. It does not have enough pep to pull a small lawn trailor without hanging in the passing gear. The fuel economy is not at all what I expected from a 6 cyl. (empty weight,no trailor)

1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab LB


Review

This is my favorite ford of the 5 I
have owned, all 150 and 250 4x4's.
However this is the most expensive
truck I have owned. I have replaced
the auto tranny, head gaskets,
instrument cluster, both power door
lock units and after several attemps to
correct the left rear wheel locking up
when applying a cold brake, i just gave
up. It will turn heads and is a
pleasure to drive when not driving the
the local dealer service department!
Oh, the top of the engine makes too
much noise on a cold start.

1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

My truck generates the standard Ford
problems annually. The 'hem' seam on
all four doors developed rust (which
Ford refused to fix as the rust did not
perforate the metal), phantom
windshield wipers (unfixed), coil pack
failure (1) and air conditioner
refrigerant leaks requiring annual
recharge and also the famous Ford door
crack above the intersection of the
front and rear door on both sides.

The irritation is that these problems
are all reported but Ford refused to
address the problems until (reportedly
and time will tell) the 2004 redesign.
How does one say "Cash Cow".


Best Features

Interior comfort; acceptable ride; electronic 4WD shift.


Worst Features

Manufacturer responding to customer 'quality' issues would be a refreshing change for Ford. Ford customer service is signficantly worse than that for my European sedan (both with similar MSRPs).

Review

In june 2001 I bought a 99 modle with
only 17000 on it . Since then I had to
have 2 coil's put in under warr. In 03
for some reason the gasket around the
rear sliding window sank in but the
dealer would not replace it. and the
extended would not cover . again in 03
the trucks drivers door started tearing
the meatle at the bottom of the window
at the rear corner. The dealer said it
was common. not covered under extened
warr. now the odometer comes and gos
the dealer will fix it if I pay another
$50. and it is one of the warr. codes
in their computer.There is a drive
train vibration from rear. the
automatic transmittion sucks and truck
dosnt handle.


Best Features

body styleing is nice, the truck rides high for a factory unit (plus to me not for most).


Worst Features

I have seen the 04 but not driven one . I would hope that ford has gone the extra mile to fix these problems .

Review

I have 155,000 miles on the odometer
and it still drives great. I have only
replaced the brakes, alternator, and
door lock relay. I drive alot- but use
it regularly to haul hay. I cannot
believe I'm not having to look for a
new truck yet. I do routine
maintenance but this truck has held up
better than any truck I've ever owned
including multiple GMC. I very glad
ford had a rebate the week I went
looking for a new truck


Best Features

The truck just looks great, very quiet, strong low end torque.


Worst Features

Better power window motors
