2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCrew 4WD Flareside 6.5 ft. LB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my truck when it had 59,000 km. Never had any problems exceot for an odd ticking noise when idling. Seems as soon as I hit 100,000 km things started to go. Between 100,000 and 120,000 km the window regulator on my drivers door failed...window simply dropped. I started to get a rough idle and the check engine light came on and ran very bad just long enough for me to pull over, but suddenly it smoothed out. Odd clunking noise from the rear end and shifting started to get rough. Then a fuel injector went, plugs went, catalyctic went. Great truck until 100,000 km. Sell it at 99,000 or you will be sorry...


Best Features

Great looks! Nice ride.


Worst Features

Improve the reliability . A 100k truck is pretty sad.

Review

The transmissions are junk in these trucks and Ford Motors will not even acknowledge that there is a problem with their design. A person with a normal job making less than $40,000 a year cannot afford both maintenance and the payment on one of these trucks.


Worst Features

Ford Motors needs to take a second look at the design flaw and fix it accordingly.

Review

Here's my update.
I'm the "Dan" guy who posts about 3rd Ford truck and still impressed.
I finally started to get a misfire.
Dealership said it didn't throw ONE SINGLE CODE (like all other keep posting about) no cam phasers, sensors, lifters etc.
Replaced all 8 plugs, and misfire is resolved as of yesterday.
NOT ONE BROKE!, only 56k, but still 6 years old.
I really think the 2 piece spark plug design is horrible and YES causing a lot of you financial hardship, however....change them at or before 60k.
I really think that any V-8 not changing plugs til 120k, like I keep reading will obviously give someone a lot of trouble removing.
Use Mobil-1 5w-20w, NOT the old fashioned sludge 10w-40


Best Features

Looks, ride, room, power, reliability. The model suggestions didn't give me the option to select 5.4L XLT 5.5ft bed, but thats what I have in the Supercab.


Worst Features

Poor AC, takes too long to cool. The spark plug issue, and for god sake it's a 330ci engine with only 300HP??? come on now, oh well, I didn't buy it to race Cobra Mustangs, and GTO's.

Review

Going on 6 yrs now with mine, and 34,500 miles.
Never skips a beat , and have done all sched maintenance. No problems with the 5.4L so far, but seems a little sluggish. On my 2nd set of tires; the tires from ford only lasted for 34000 and started to split. Hope to go another 6yrs with this truck then trade it in for a new one. Quiet ride with little road noise .


Worst Features

Would like a little more power out of the 5.4L seems sluggish when getting on freeway ramps.
