2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 5M)


During the polar vortex-initiated temperature drop, we had to take someone who desperately needed protection from the cold (since he was about 7 and a half miles away from work and he was going to have to drive through ice-specifically the nasty black stuff.)

With a far from top flight battery and less than a quarter of a tank of gas, it sailed through taking our friend to work and getting us back home and all the features worked from the air bags to the radio, overhead, and odometer displays-it was a sight to see.

The Chrysler van we could have had to settle for was having problems in 50 degree rain, but this truck just works, even in the 0s. (Granted, it was sunny, but c'mon now.)

Best Features

Reliability, engine, fluff, transmission, tailgate (it's more heavy duty than the bumper!), in other words, EVERYTHING! I could bore you with how ecstatic I am with our truck.

Worst Features

Make the HomeLink Universal Transciever standard on all F-150 models (as long as it has TravelNote) for those people who actually want to remember they need to call people without having their cell phone on. You know, to save people from having accidents.
