Needs help in three areas.
By Allan on


2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XLT Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


HVAC controls. Limited choices. Slow to heat or cool. Bad fogging problem outside front windshield at engine vent. Visteon compressors are lame. Premium sound system: NOT! Poor controls/performance. Horrible speaker layout and too few of them. Low quality plastics everywhere and very little in the way of convenience areas compared to GMC or Dodge XLT. 4.6L V-8 Heritage engine dates from a decade ago. Low HP, torque & MPGs. Not particularly smooth, especially when A/C is running. Still, I paid $10K less than a Titan or Tacoma - so I can live with the gripes.

Best Features

None over any comparable GMC or Dodge model.

Worst Features

HVAC - use Denso! Radio - rip it out and find a real sound engineer from Bose. Engine - Good Gawd! What were you thinking? Service accessibility is awful. Torque and HP are almost insufficient when nominal loaded.
