"This f150 is so terrible that a wrote a blog about it on my website just google - f150 is the worst truck ever. I can't fit all the problems on this page, there are just to many. Let's talk about engine replacement at 60K, 2 transmissions, ABS system total replacement, brakes tires every 2-3 years, front end replacement every 2 years ball joints etc. Rear End gears replacement twice. Nothing but problems. Seriously don't do it. I owned this truck for 10 years and the total payout with monthly payments, fixes not including tires every 2 -3 years is around 60K I have it all on my quick-books. The repair costs on my F150 is so bad that my accountant called me and thought i was cooking the books with the expenses because he has never seen so many repairs on a truck. My accountant has been in business for 20 years +. Zero horsepower with 8 MPG in the city. Pathetic seriously. I'll pay the fixes no problem but at-least give me some HP. My 2000 Honda accord has more HP then this f150. I hate this f150 so much that i want to light it on Fire."

"I have owned a lot of pick-ups, both new and used, of several brands, this is the best one yet. While I do not use it as much as in the past, as I am retired now, I have moved many different loads, including a full size backhoe. Mainly used for doing maintenance work and pleasure. It has performed better then I expected. It is the Lariat model with largest V-8 and all the toys. As for ride, it rivals my luxury sedan. If the need came up, I would replace it with another one just like it."

"I paid 23,000 in 2011 with 18000mls.. the first yr., nothing,ran great,no problems. 2nd yr., every thing started to go.(first)the line going from the PS pump to the rack rotted out,shouldn''t happen on a 4 yr. old truck! then the rack & pinion shaft went,then the steering knuckle went,then the upper ball joints went,then the steering pump went,the gen.light keeps coming on,going off for 2 yrs.,now the 4x4 won't ingage(lousy system),up to $1000 to fix. Tranny blew(111,000)had rebuilt put in,cost $3200, a month later, cooler line going to radiator rotted out(broke the radiator inlet when trying to remove old line which meant that the radiator & tranny cooler had to be replaced.I put in over $8,000 out of my pocket for a truck less than 6 yrs. old. Wish I stuck with Chevrolet!!! Don't buy one!!!"

Cons: "exhaust manifold leak that happens"

"This is my 4th F150. Have used it to haul a 3 horse slant load, gooseneck (like a 5th wheel)horse trailer all over Michigan. (NOT recommended for states with mountains.) With regular care, and immediate repair when something does wear out, still going strong. My biggest gripe - mechanically - is the failure of the exhaust manifold whatever-it-is that makes it sound like it needs a valve job. Fixed it once already. Another gripe is the rust-out of the fog lights and the access plug for the spare tire. Really? You can't provide some protection to those areas Ford? Replaced front shocks etc. Still running original equipment on rear axle. Drive 3-4 miles each day on gravel road before hitting pavement."

Nice truck with new motor with 3 year warranty, new tires, cd player, ac, too much to include

"nice truck with new motor with a 3 year guaranteed warranty from Ford Dealership. truck is nice to drive and ride. has 120,000 on it but a new motor with 1500 miles on it. looks like runs better than a new one. highly maintained in excellent condition."

My 05 Ford f150

"Ive owned my f150 now for about 6 years and im extremely happy with it. Its only broke down on me one time and it was a cheap fix. Very reliable and drives like a luxury car. It has the 5.4L Triton engine and has gobs of power and torque. I wouldnt hesitate to buy another one."
