Review

STARTING AT 1K MILES THE ENGINE
KNOCKED LIKE A DIESEL UNTIL IT WARMED
UP.(65 DEGREE WEATHER SO IT WAS NOT
THAT COLD) FORD CLAIMS THAT PISTON
SLAP IS NORMAL!!! WHEN RUNNING THE
TRUCK KINDA HARD IN EVERY GEAR WHEN
THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTED IT MADE A
SCREECHING NOISE. (DEALER COULD NOT
DUPLICATE) DRIVER SIDE DOOR RATTLED
LIKE IT WAS FULL OF ROCKS. I HAD MORE
FAITH IN MY 1985 F150 W/ 170k MILES
THAN I HAD WITH MY 03 W/ 9K MILES THAT
I LOST ALOT OF MONEY ON WHEN I TRADED
IT IN, BECAUSE I COULD NOT SEE MAKING
ONE MORE PAYMENT ON!!!


Best Features

NICE BODY STYLING AND INTERIOR COMFORTABLE


Worst Features

BUILD WITH MORE QUALITY LIKE THEY CLAIM IN ALL OF THEIR ADS. TAKE SOME TIPS FROM HONDA!

Review

I had a '97 f-150 4.6 ran great but
traded it in for a '03 f-150 5.4
because the '97 had 210,000 miles.
The '97 never had major problems.
The '03 I have pretty much sucks. Motor
knocks on a cold start, tranny shifts
funny, and the rear diff "grabs" when
making a sharpe turn. Needless to say
the '03 is for sale.


Best Features

The power pedals and power rear window in the '03 is pretty nice to have. Although the quality of the 5.4 in my opinion sucks, it pulls nice w/ a 6,000lbs trailer. The '97 w/ the 4.6 was underpowered but held up longer than the 5.4


Worst Features

I've heard of other people not liking the 5.4 due to problems. Same goes for the rear diff. In fact I've heard bad stories about all American trucks except for the power stroke and duramax.
