2009 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Lariat 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought my 2009 F150 SuperCrew 4x4 Lariat right at the cusp of 2016 used with only 42,000 miles on it. All in all it's been a mostly great truck to the point that I'm going to keep it, forever. I've used my truck for a variety of things in the time I've owned it and I've had my ups and downs with it. I've hauled with it, I've done serious off roading with it, highway driving, city driving, you name it I've probably done it. Being as I'm also a mechanic when I have the time I do all my own work on it too so understand that my perspective on things is a little different than yours the average consumer is going to be. In total these trucks are solid trucks. They may not be the fastest or best in a few areas but in total so long as you take care of this truck it will take care of you. One of the most common complaints I hear about these trucks are specifically with the 5.4 3V engines. I personally cannot stress enough that regular oil changes with quality oil filters is critical for these engines. The power available from the factory is not a concern for me personally as I will modify my vehicles to get more performance but for you who is reading this who may not it's best described as adequate. Due to some of the things I used to do specifically off roading, I've had various issues due to the nature of just off roading in general so I don't credit that against the overall reliability of the truck however I will include them. I've been through one transfer case, 3 assemblies, an AC compressor and evaporator core, one radiator (the plastic tank on one side cracked due to heat cycles as it will eventually on all vehicles that have some age on them), 2 CV axles (again off roading attributed), and both timing chain tensioners as they blew the seals out causing the chains to rattle. As far as electrical problems the only thing I had go out on me was one backup sensor. As far as issues with bodywork my advice is to take some silicon and seal the 3rd brake light as well as drill a drain hole in each cab corner. This area is notorious to leak from the brake light down along the inside and pool water inside the cab corners causing them to rust. As far as interior issues the passenger interior door handle cracked (probably a manufacturing issue). Other than all of that the truck has held up well and I've had it long enough to where I've begun modifying it significantly from stock. All in all compared to what I've payed for it when I first bought it versus overall satisfaction and use I'd buy it again if given the same chance. As long as you stick with OEM parts repairs are generally not bad and surprisingly you can do a lot of it yourself. In general if you buy one of these trucks and know the issues with them you won't be in for any surprises just make sure you get one with a previous maintenance history that has been taken care of and you can avoid some of the horror stories you may have heard about. To finish up this review please note that my MPG will not reflect yours as my truck is heavily modified.

Review

I will start by saying i must have purchased the lemon from all the other reviews i have read. I purchased mine in 2010 with 15000 miles on it, a beautiful black supercrew FX4, loved it up until thw 36000 mile warrenty expired. Then it started. Drivers lumbar support stopped working, half the speedometer and tackometer lights are out, rear door handle broke in half. Thats the interior. After the powertrain warranty ran out 60000 Miles I walked out to my truck one day and half the transmission fluid was on the driveway, I didn't want to drive it so I had it towed to the transmission place. I was told it was 4 quarts low. Two seals had gone so they replaced those and changed the fluid and told me it was good, never been the same since and I'm just waiting for it to go. I will say besides that it has never let me down and I do still think its a beautiful truck but I will never buy another one. It now has 78000 miles

Review

In 7 years I have used this truck as a car. I've had a major problem which required replacing the front steering unit. The heater/air blower unit had to be replaced.

Review

I purchased my 2009 FX4 SuperCrew in 2012 with 49,000 miles on the odometer. It is now 2016 and my truck now has over 195,000 on it. I drive this truck A LOT, as you can see. This is the first time writing a review for a vehicle I've owned, but I felt that I had to share my experience with perspective buyers.
I have changed the oil exclusively with Ford Motor Craft oil and filters based off of the dash computer oil life calculator. I have done all scheduled service either myself or at the dealer. This truck has never let me down. Aside from oil changes and brakes, I have replaced both front upper control arms, front hub actuators, spark plugs, and serviced the rear diff, transfer case, engine coolant, and replaced the tires and battery. In 150,000 miles, I would say that is very minimal maintenance, and I couldn't ask for anything more.
My fuel mileage has been consistent since the day I bought it. My transmission shifts smooth, 4x4 engages easy smoothly, and the ride is still smooth, quiet and comfortable.
I am updating this now with over 216,000 miles on the odometer, and still no issues with this truck. I am very pleased with the reliability and quality of this truck.

If you are looking for a reliable, comfortable and capable truck, the 2009/2010 F150 with 5.4 v8 is the truck for you.
