"I have a 1998 F-150 XL. Plain Jane. THis truck has been wonderful. I have had it for 4 1/2 years now. It now has 130,000 mile on it and I had had few problems with it. I believe poor design witht he spark plugs on the engine. It did cost $300 to get a tune up because the last spark plug on the V8 is right up against the firewall and impossible to get out. Need special tool. Other than that. This truck is reliable, and I have no worries when going on long trips...I know the truck will keep going for many years."
