2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Although not broken in yet, out of 8 new Ford trucks, this is the worst one for gas mileage. Only 9 mpg. Truck has manual hubs and would not stay in 4WD. A new shift assembly had to be installed with less than 1,000 miles on it. Very hard to steer in 4WD when trying to make a sharp turn in reverse. Sometimes the wheels won't move at all. The truck has 17" wheels and wide tires. The wide tires make the truck more difficult to handle when driving on snow covered roads. Power windows do not work in cold weather.

Best Features

Power, cab room, truck height, payload

Worst Features

Improve gas mileage, reinstate the small vent windows. Rain water rushes in the truck if the windows are down a fraction of an inch. Stop making improvements that aren't necessary; cost more to fix and prohibit the average mechanic from working on the vehicles.
