2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab FX4 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

It was between this FX4 and a Hemi Ram, but this truck in my opinion won hands down. It puts out more then enough power on the street and would be very hard to get stuck off road. I will be buying another in a year or two.


Best Features

5.4L triton, Design inside and out, very fun to drive.


Worst Features

More power, and more options.

2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The truck has more bells and whistles than I was looking for but the price was good. I enjoy the feel and comfort of the ride but now would perfer to have four doors instead of the door and a half setup.


Best Features

Good deal on end of year model. Enjoy controls on the steering column (except missing the CD changer to move from CD to CD). Heated seat nice but controls must pushed each time the truck is started. Would have liked a warm seat as the truck is warming up with the remote starter.


Worst Features

The placement of the jack is not desirable. If the back seat recessed when folded up and the back floor was usable across the back, then it would be more convenient. Also the power moon roof should have a one button push to close properly.

Review

This is one awesome truck! As a matter of fact you tend to forget you're in a truck! Ride is by far the best all around. I've driven them all because that's what I do for a living; nothing compares to what this machine does for you. Many onlookers and challengers everyday and with that alone, I'm glad I got my truck!


Best Features

The ease of use! This layout is sooo user friendly it invites you to touch. The components on the steering wheel is a major plus too. Awesome!


Worst Features

Better fuel efficiency. My baby drinks fuel like a fish...ouch! 12 mpg (hwy) is not a good thing especially with the price gouging thats going on.

2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this truck in late July'04 and had to replace rear end the next week. Three months later I noticed a BAD engine hesitation/shutdown as I climb steep grade hills (Rocky Mountains). Taken in 5 or 6 times but the problem is still there. Dealership is dumbfounded by it and has no clue what to do. There is a rattling in my front door panels on cold mornings that last until it gets above 60 degrees. VERY ANNOYING. Other that that I love my truck. It's got the power you need and the speed to take on anything. Not sure what others are saying about no power off the line.


Best Features

Interior styling. Exterior styling. Towing power.


Worst Features

Get the kinks worked out! It's frustrating when you pay $30,000+ on a vehicle and you have to take it to be fixed every other month. Fix the "tail in the air problem" and add a leveling kit for the front end as standard equipment. It does wonders for the look of your 4X4.

Review

This is my first brand new vehicle and so far it's been a great buy. The new design is well accepted and appropriate as not to appear dated. While the truck has awesome power, performance is lagging due to the near 6000lb weight. Ford can do better to reduce the weight of the trucks in future models. The ergonomics are reasonably thought out but I always feel I'm reaching a bit too far for the radio/temperature controls, but I also sit as far back as the seat goes. The interior design is nearing luxury looks, with the wood finish and chrome, although you can spend much more for looks on new Lincoln Mark LT, or whatever it's called.


Best Features

Too much to talk about.


Worst Features

Better fuel mileage. Reduce the weight.
