I thought it would be better
By D. Hamblin on


2008 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Bought the truck new. Have not had any actual "problems". The truck drives just fine. Seems like when you go over a bump the bed "moves" no noise and everything feels tight, but you can see movement. On a windy day I have to fight to get to 70 MPH. Feels liks something is pushing against me. Truck feels underpowered. Has a slight rough isle at stoplights. Dealer says it's normal, Ford has "leaned out" the motor at idle for imissions regulations. I wish I had bought the V-8. 4300 miles now. Really wish it had more power. My 1997 S-10 had more power.

Best Features

Looks and the height of the truck. sits very nice. Cabin space is great for a standard cab.

Worst Features

Wheels and tires on XL do the truck an injustice. Too much black plastic on the front of the truck. Chrome please. (plastichrome at least) Give me a CD player on a $17,000.00 truck, come on Ford! Put the cruise buttons in it too, would make it a good bargain then.
