My 5th Ford Truck
By hambone33 on


2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XL 4WD Styleside 8 ft. LB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


I bought my first Ford Truck in 1990 and have owned nothing but Fords since then but I am about to try another brand after this 2004 F-150. One of the over the plug coil melted down - twice.
The second time leaving me stranded on vacation.
THe dealer in Redding CA stuck it to me on the price of repair.
The rear axle seal started leaking. Replaced both axles as they had a ring worn around them by the seals.
30K mi. later same thing and had to replace axle and seal. Leaked again, back to dealer 3 times.
Still leaks and they say I need whole new rearend. Still driving it but going to sell and buy a 2013 RAM.

Best Features

Nice looking truck and it has run pretty well except for the coil problem. Good sound system.

Worst Features

Gas mileage sucks. best I ever got on the road was 16MPG at 60MPH with the tailgate off. Pulling my pop-up camper I get 10MPG.
