2006 Ford F-150 Regular Cab STX 2dr Regular Cab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)
I bought this truck new, it has about 150k miles on it, and it is an awesome vehicle. I have a different daily driver now but just cant bear to part with this truck. For the first 140k miles nothing went wrong or had to be replaced (other than normal stuff i.e. tires, filters, etc). Since then, the alternator needed to be replaced, and the ac has developed a small leak. Thats it. I love this car, i highly recommend the f150. If i buy another truck it will be an f150. Looks pretty sharp too.

This engine has spark plugs buried deep in the heads. They tend to seize and break off when attempting to change. Expect to spend $1,000 to $1,500 to change plugs and coils. At 75,000 to 85,000 miles or so, expect to spend another $2,000 to replace variable timing gears and chain.

bought this truck with 136 000 khm on it. i was using it for work so i needed something reliable. the truck was great it motor ran smoothly everything was responsive. no major issues so far. the only complaint i would have is for a v8 engine it was lazy. tried replacing spark plugs and gas filter but still had a slow moving truck. other then that the truck was great no real problems other then basic up keep would recommend to anyone who needs a solid truck
more power its a v8 it should be able to move and haul with ease
