2008 Sport Trac
Cons: TransmissionWas a bit pricy...Great great truck..Definately surpassed my expectations. I'm paranoid about the transmission, as well as the vehicle in the long-term..Guess i'll see how it holds up! (Oh..I live on top of mountain with LOTS of snow..Truck is a shure footed goat!!)
This is the best truck I have owned
Pros: all features
Cons: noneThis is the most comfortable ,best handling,best riding truck I have ever owned. It really does a good job haulding my travel trailor down the road. I am very satisfied with its preformance.
Its a supercab FX4, 4x4--Not a mins. trouble
Pros: automatic on the floor
Cons: Black enterior UGH, so hard to keep clean!I have owned this F150 since new. Its been a great truck, Its dark blue and beautiful, it has dual exhaust(I added) and it sounds awsome, and has a lot of power. It would probably get around 20mpg, if I would lighten up my lead foot, as it is I get between 16 and 18 and thats with a 5.4. I have a 1997 w/220,000, they have both been geat trucks. The 05, has not been back to the dealer except for oil changes. I really like it and would buy another one.
best back then
Pros: after market hood
Cons: seat covering not as durable as last lightning modellove the performance , want another one, too bad they discontinued
Great except for MPG
Pros: Towing ability, back seat room.
Cons: Fuel mileageIn the governments infinite wisdom they have made air quality standards on trucks so stringent that in order to meet these standards the manufacturers have had to go to Diesel Particulate Filters. Because of this these vehicles (all manufacturers) have lost 20% on fuel mileage, which means we have 20% more semis hauling fuel to gas stations that are also suffering from reduced fuel mileage because they are under the same restrictions. What did we gain? We tow often with our pickup grossing up to 30,000 lbs. This F-350 handles it with ease. Fantastic vehicle.
Pros: small truckBest small truck ... like the big truck but small for city driving
