"I have 1998 F150 with 154,000 miles I have owned since it had 3,700. Best vehicle I have ever owned. AC still works great, no leaks of any kind. I have kept up with all the routine maintennce including every 25,000 to 30,000 transmission flush. It is better than the Mazda 626 and Nissan Maxima I have owned."
"I bought the 1998 F-150 new almost 12 years ago and have put 258,000 miles on the truck with very few repairs. I just bought a new 2010 Ford F-150. Awesome truck. Take care of them and they take care of you. Engine and transmission are still strong."
"I have almost 180,000 miles on my truck and I haven't had to do any major repairs. It's comfortable enough for long highway trips and the four wheel drive can take me almost anywhere. I've never had any problems with it starting and Iv'e gotten 18+ m.p.g. a few times. I've had it for over four years and will probably have it for four more. And it was used when I got it."
