I love the comfortable ride but wish I could firm it up when off roading so may look at putting air shocks on. Smooth ride lots of power, handles like a high performance car and yet it is very comfortable with a pleasant ride and just enough engine sound to let you know there's some power under the hood. This truck is driven on pavement 95% of the time, generally on the highway. It is under-coated every winter and is given synthetic oil changes every 4000 km. The truck is extremely spacious and great for camping, towing and fishing trips.
I work a truck hard here on our farm. I bought it at a low price and intend to keep it going for years. So if you want a reliable, quiet, economic truck, by all means. Seats are very comfortable for the long haul. Even with all season tires, I get through mud and snow if I have a load in the back. Parts of the exterior of the transmission were not covered under the warranty and we still had to pay for the rental vehicle.
Starting is always easy, even in cold weather and the air conditioner works great in the hot weather. This truck has some excellent features unfortunately it seems there is always something wrong with it. Absolutely would buy it again. From skidding logs from the forest to towing a trailer full of skids, the truck just keeps truckin!. I really miss it, but due to economic difficulties we had to let it go. Very reliable; extremely comfortable; back seat space is huge and convenient for hauling things other then people.
The traction control and 4x4 works great and has safely got me through many winter storms with the truck not sliding an inch. At 60 000 The brake sensor needed to be replaced, as without it you cannot put the truck into gear At 70 000 the hanger bearing went on the truck which then cut the drive shaft in half. We had the Supercrew that was so roomy you could easily sleep in it. The winter handling is excellent and it has great visibility. Almost 50k km and so far so good and im so happy with my purchased. It's comfortable, very roomy, looks great, and the 4. I purchased my Truck last Oct2012 as used and so far performed very well specially in the snow.
If it got better fuel economy it would be perfect - but its a big truck. Perfect for pulling your trailer on summer vacation. Current there is about 70 000 km on it. Sony audiophile sound system is the best I've ever heard; sub woofer is amazing; vocals crystal clear. Very quiet with great gas mileage. Ordered it from the factory.
Trips back to the fields across pastures and plowed fields are rough but the F150 just keeps going. Towing is sweet and simple, just hook up and it goes. No mechanical issues except a noisy valve lifter which I ignore. Truck has been flawless, Great vehicle for work or pleasure well maintained interior is mint. I wish the truck was automatic fwd vs selectable, like my previous Chevy. . .
