2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 6.5 ft. LB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Okay, first of all, great truck at a great value. However, I had a brake caliper sieze up at around 50k. Also, when I went to conduct regular maintenance and started a spark plug swap, 3 of them broke off in the heads. This is because of a design flaw, and whoever thought it was a good idea to engineer a spark plug into three pieces should be shot. Now that there’s three broken off, I had no choice but to completely remove the heads to prevent ceramic fragmentation from the spark plugs from falling into the combustion chamber. Needless To say, a standard spark plug swap is gonna be expensive on this truck whenever you have to do it.

Ford F-150 is a GREAT value. I have had mine for 12 years with only one problem. The alternator quit at 165000 miles. If you do the regular maintenance on the vehicle and keep it clean, both inside and out, you can be buried in it !!!!

I bought this truck used with 48k miles in 2007. Local trade. 11 years later and 154k miles still running strong. Wife says I should get a new one and I ask why? This one is just fine. Routine maintenance always done. Original spark plugs has been the only issue. Ford did screw those up. Still no rust. So far I have had to change passenger side front wheel bearing so I just did both at same time with new hubs. All U joints were changed at 150k, rear drive shaft went out so just did all. Only for my personal taste I changed the 18 inch wheels to 17 inch custom and tires, added 4 inch lift and changed sound system to a pioneer head unit and sony speakers. Best truck on the market.
