Advice: Go drive a Ram or Tundra before setting your heart on the SVTI expected more from the SVT. Cornering was tippy and acceleration was sluggish. My Dad's Bug has more get up and go.
Cons: Quality of the truck and personels
Advice: Please Please Don't Buy JunkI bought brand new F-150 regular cab, XLT, Flareside. Oh... Man........ car rattles like crazy. I went to service four times and truck was in the shop for 47 days.... THE BRAND NEW TRUCK!!!! It's in the process of arbitration program seeking my money back. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE.......Since first place... Sales personnel, service personnel, customer service representative, even settlement representative..... From now on, NO MORE FORD!!!!!!!!!! I feel sorry for Ford Company who is losing all the markets to Japanese and European Auto makers. Ford needs to wake up and see what is truely wrong with their company!!!! WAKE UP AND TRY TO LISTEN TO CUSTOMERS!!! I truely want to advise all the potential Ford buyers from bottom of my heart: Cars are pretty reasonable price, but why you get a junk and get bad treatment from the service. Say No to FORD
Pros: The optional 7700 package (has a 3.73 rear end)
Cons: You cannot get the Fx4 package with the 7700 package
Advice: Make sure to get the XLT packageWhat can i say, its simply the best truck on the road. The 5.4L engine provides ample horsepower and torque. The optional 7700 package gives u the greatest towing capability available on a 1/2 ton.
Pros: Being able to see everything
Cons: the awful steering
Advice: DONT DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!It's junk! I have never regretted buying a car this much. I have always had Fords and this is the most disapointing vehicle I have ever driven. This has turned me off of Ford's forever.
Pros: Ride height and soft ride
Cons: Steering wheel height/angle adjustments
Advice: Get step bars to get into truckMy wife and I both have very bad backs, we both have F150 Supercab 4x4 2002's, both of us love these vehicles... She had a 2002 Ford Escape and I traded in my 1999 Grand Marquis, no regrets whatsoever. 4.6L engines in both get better gas mileage than either of previous vehicles. I am 6'5' and approx 320 lbs and have no trouble fitting in these vehicles
