2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew XLT 4WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle has been mostly to my liking. The small v-8 has plenty of power for day to day driving. Towing up to the Ford-recommended limit is adequate but the engine complains. Knew this going in, that 95% of my driving would be non-towing. Overall mileage an honest 16 to17 mpg. Trade-off made sense to me. Computer engine control system is balky and produces knocking regardless of load or fuel grade. Not a serious problemm, just an annoyance that must be accepted as part of the engineered-in compromised characteristic of the smaller engine. The 17 inch wheels produce a very comfortable ride. Excellent road travelling car: have put most of the mileage on travelling all accross the country.


Best Features

Excellent, comfortable, stable ride. Quiet. Nice visibility forward.


Worst Features

Bigger mirrors, better placement of door-lock switches in a position less vulnerable to inadvertant locking.

2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD Flareside SB (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Except for a bad experience with the dealer this truck is excellent so far. Purchased it from the lot; the truck had 600 miles already on it but so far no problems.


Best Features

I like the powerful engine and pulling power the most, and the soft ride on trips and it has a great sounding stereo system too.


Worst Features

The only improvement I would like is air ride suspension and an electric window behide the rear seats.

2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew King Ranch 2WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The leather sold me. I had never had a 4-door truck before. I will never have a truck that is not a 4-door now. All I did was add dual exhaust an a K&N air filter and drive it. Keep your foot out of it and the MPG will be good, 18-19 MPG. The leather still smells good at 45K.


Best Features

Real Leather & 4 Doors


Worst Features

GM type "Haul" down shift. I had a 2000 Chevy PU prior to the Ford. Down shifting to haul effects reverse in the Chevy. Good for backing a trailer. An optional higher speed rear end would be nice.

2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XL 2WD Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

We have owned this vehicle for 3
months now and have had to take it in
for repair six times. Seems like it
has been in the shop more than we have
driven it. I don't feel it is reliable
at all! Hope to get it off our hands
ASAP!


Best Features

Split front seat and center console.


Worst Features

Its needs to be reliable! Replaced clutch, catalytic converter twice, A/C, noisy on freeway.
