Approaching 9 Years and Still Going...
By polarbeartx on


2002 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XL 2WD Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Bought this Supercrew new in the fall of 2002 for a great deal of $21900.
They were making room for 2003 models.

Had electronic console problem but fixed under warranty.
Then later in years had recurrent problem with electronics, that local shops would keep replacing GEM to fix temporarily.
Finally took it to dealer and they found a leak in the windshield seal that was allowing water into fuse box and GEM.
Once that was fixed, no more issues!!

Mechanically, AC, transmission always have worked great.
Plan to keep on driving for years to come.

Best Features

Was attracted by truck and 5 passenger vehicle all in one, but not in a monster truck size. Love the 4 solid cup holders around the center console. Kids have AC adapter in back. Comfy ride, room back seat with full sized doors.

Worst Features

Obviously with rising gas prices, mpg improvements would be good. But is comparable to other 8 cyl trucks.
