I’ve owned the truck since it was brand new. No engine repairs whatsoever but I do have low miles. I didn’t see a place to review above but the door locks and window controls are only workable from the door itself, I.e. driver cannot work the lock or window on passenger side from driver side. Controls for outside mirrors are not working either. It’s a pretty great truck otherwise.
Ford arguably perfected the V8 many years ago but seems to have redesign the 5.4L Triton in my 2000 F150 to include many plastic parts bolted on aluminum ones. I have 80,000 miles on mine and now have a gasket or intake failure. I take pretty good care of my Vehicles and have 400,000 miles on my 93 Honda Accord, with all original parts except the normal wear and tear items except the transmission computer and brake Master cylinder, even the air still blows cold! After looking at the engine I notice all the plastic and the purposeful design to make the dealership extra money in the service department. Don't get me wrong the others may be worse , but I think this is my last Ford Truck. I will pay close attention to detail on my next truck purchase.
I have a 2000 f150 super crew with a 4.6l eng, with 156k miles. I have owned this truck for almost 3 years and so far so good. I have taken 3 long trip with a minum of 1200 miles each way to my destination and back , and haven't had one single problem but common wear and tear. I really can't complain with my truck with reliability and comfort. The only thing that I can say is a con is the lack of power going up hill.

I bought my truck on auction for $4k. Best money I've ever spent. No problems except for a stripped drain plug. Plenty of power, passenger space and cargo space. The only complaints are in the size and fuel economy. It's hard to park in any place other than straight in, and the best MPG I've gotten is 17 hwy.
