2006 Ford F-150 XL 4dr SuperCab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


If you are reading this and haven't checked, pull back your carpet in the front and see if it's wet, mine was soaked! After a recent heavy storm, I had to use a shop vac to pull the water out of the channels holding the wiring harness under the kick plates at the entrance to both driver and passenger doors. I've read where these king cabs have a big problem with water leaks that may go un- noticed until you start smelling mildew. The third brake light has a history of leaking on most years of these trucks. The water runs down channels from the light toward the front floorboard soaking everything underneath. Also, there have been other reports of the air conditioning condensor vent leaking

Best Features

Comfort and ride is great. I like the visibility I have which my previous Toyota Tacoma did NOT have. I have the 5.4 engine and it has good power although not as much as my 2003 Dodge Ram 4.7 had. I'm hoping the dealer can find the source of the water leak because I love driving it.

Worst Features

Ford has known about these water leaks for several years and have done nothing to correct it. The engine needs more torque and a gas mileage of at least 18-22 average. Also needed is less plastic in the passenger compartment. Too many squeeks and rattles that I have managed to reduce with padding
