"My 2006 f-150 XL has been quite the journey. Going from a 2000 Chevy Silverado to this is a big change. The Ford was an previous work vehicle; crank windows, bone stock, and steel rims. Nothing fancy. I purchased it for $1200 and i thought i got a great deal, but i mistakenly booked it as an extended cab due to the 4 doors it had. Oddly enough, the regular cab has 4 doors. Trade in was $1500 as a regular cab so it wasn't too bad of a deal considering that you can't even touch one of these for under $4000. Overall, i am pleased to have a truck that i can consider newer, and one that isn't bad on gas. (4.2L V6)"
Pros: "New MFG modified engine, better oil pump,cam beari"

"I had to replace the engine with a crate engine due to the MFG installed a weak oil pump and cheap cam shaft bearings. Spark plugs twisted off on the old engine. Due to bad cam bearings, cam lasers became erratic which caused the timing to fluctuate."
Cons: "no cool storage compartments in the cab....."

"Great Truck.. Plenty of power and pickup. Handles and drives very smoothly. I use it to tow trailers and to haul my dirt bikes, never an issue. Always reliable, 140k miles and no serious repairs. I get compliments everyday, and nobody believes that it is a 2004! great style inside and out. I have the Lariat edition and would not trade it for the world!"
Cons: "Engine in the heads, popcorn plugs that shoot out."

"This truck was a dream to drive. It was a company issue that saw many different drivers. However, I maintained this baby. It was kept clean and all regular maintenance performed. Mileage was actually low for the model year. 101944 miles. Not many for a 2006. Started a bad miss in the engine just out of the blue. I was accelerating onto the freeway and bang. Dead miss in the engine and engine light starts blinking. Ford dealer diagnostics performed and found "Catastrophic Failure of #3 cylinder". That's when I researched the TRITON's history of problems. New engine estimated at $5600."
Cons: "Satellite six disc player was not to great!"
