I needed a Truck
By Mathias on
Vehicle2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew XLT Rwd Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewI have the 5.4 V8, Tow, Moonroof, power
rear window, 6 disk in-dash, and
purchased for 28K. Now at 3500 miles
there are no rattles,squeaks or wind
noise. Alignment is perfect. The ride
is firm. Interior quality is excellent.
The seats have been raised 2-3 inches
from previous models. I am relatively
short (5'7") My feet just touch the
floor. The seats took some getting used
to. Low mounted door arm-rests not
practical due to tall seats. Engine
power is very adequate. I tow a 5,500lb
boat frequently. This truck accelerates
well with or without boat in tow. Truck
does not deserve "suggish" ratings.
Excellent quality and good performance
for the price.
Best FeaturesMy favorite features are the 5.4 V-8, Sunroof, and power rear window. In the Supercab and larger trucks, the old style manual sliding rear windows were hard/ dangerous to reach from the drivers seat. Now they are practical and safe to use.
Worst FeaturesRaise the door arm rest or put back the older style door pull- handle. The pillar mounted grab- handle is intrusive. Make more like the 2000 Expediton models. Transmission whine very noticeable at lower highway speeds. (45-60) mph. Ruins otherwise quiet cabin.
