"I just bought my 4th Ford truck. I DID look at all the rest but came back to the ford. The 99 F-150 has been such a great truck I keep it when I bought my new 08-F-250. I have had no proublems to speak of in the 7 years I have had it with 145,000 miles. I had a 1988 before the 1999 with over 175,000 miles on it with only normal upkeep.
Problem ! I just hope Ford has done something about the seats since 1999.
My leather seat in the 99 is comming apart is my only problem."
"This was my first truck and its been great. Very low up keep; change the oil and add gas. Outstanding 4X4 for its size, I have gone places where others turn away from. Have used it for hauling my boat which matches the truck's maximum tow rating. No over heating with AC on and going 65 MPH. Downside, wish it had more horse power and torque."
