Ugh, the fuel!
By Hard to please on


2006 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


I have owned some of the best middle class American vehicles including a Dodge van with the best motor ever, the 318! However the 2006 F-150 is the best all around vehicle this picky 6'-4" body has ever driven! The only drawback is the fuel cost. Which is everybody's right now. But, 16 mpg combined driving is ridiculous in the 21st century. Buy this truck if you have a big wallet, you don't care about your "carbon footprint, or if your like me you hope that in a couple of years there will be a motor conversion so that it can run on water.

Best Features

I love this truck. It is comfortable. It is stable. It is also a very good looking truck. it sits you up high.

Worst Features

Two small things. One is the small storage under the rear seat. And the other is the bad positioning of the oil filter. Oil changes for us that still change our own oil tend to get a little messy down the arm.
