That is what I think of this pick-up truck. I just hate that I paid so much hard earned money for such a poor vehicle. The gas mileage is the worst I have seen since I owned a 70 Chevy with a 454 engine. Now that had pick- up. This Ford is the worst riding. My 70 Chevy had air shocks with 50 series wide tires; watch out for bumps, it drove much better than the Ford ever could dream of. This Ford is so bad that my next vehicle may be from JAPAN. I never thought I would ever say that. It is no wonder the American makers of autos are having such trouble in todays market.
Second owner, bought the truck used with about 40,000 miles. Just what I wanted: V6, floor mats, ground clearance (for a 4x2). The V6 has lots of torque. Wish that first was the old "bull low" that the pickups used to have. Four wheel disks, chrome wheels are a nice dress up on an otherwise plain Jane truck.
Great seating, good ride, perky V6, 4 wheel disks, ABS, CD and air conditioning
So so gas mileage, 1st gear ratio a bit high (lots of clutch slipping on rough roads).
Nice overall vehicle; fun to drive,
looks good, decent power for 6-cylinder
(mine's a manual trans), and not bad
fuel economy - very important today!
Seats could be a little more
comfortable, but other than that, a
great truck. Don't know how it
performs towing; would probably have
bought an 8-cylinder if I were using it
in that capacity. Not much room in the
cab for passengers, especially with a
stick, but I drive alone 99% of the
time, so not really an issue.
Definately not a family-vehicle, but
perfect for my use.
Traded up 36 years, from a 1966 Chevy
pickup to the 2002 Ford F150. Loved the
old Chevy but wouldn't have traded for
one a year newer. Ford has surpased GM
many times over since the 60s as far as
I'm concerned. Very pleased overall with
the F150, style, performance and the
feel of a very solid vehicle.
Would like to see running boards or side
steps standard to keep auto doors from
banging the exterior.
