2005 Ford F150
Overall, this has been a great vehicle with little to no maintenance problems. This version is the crew cab and can seat six people. It has the half doors for the back seat so no need to adjust front seats for rear seat passengers to enter vehicle. Three different engine sizes were available for this year; the 4.2, Base model, the 4.6, And 5.4 Triton. We bought the 4.6; It has the ability to tow up to 6400 lbs. With appropriate maintenance, we have spent very little money on repairs; the truck currently has about 160,000 miles on it. There are some things buyers should be aware of especially with this year model. Replacement rotors are extremely expensive, about one thousand dollars, per rotor. If you do your own work, this would definitely be cheaper, but if you're not inclined to do that, please change brake pads at appropriate intervals to avoid potential disaster. The 5.4L version was plagued by issues when trying to change spark plugs. Often the plugs would break off in the block and had to be drilled out; an unexpected expense when trying to do typical maintenance. Thankfully, this is not the case with the 4.6 Or 4.2L versions. The backseat can be a tight fit when four people are in the vehicle, there is not much room back there. The truck came with grey cloth seats. After 10 years, these are pretty cruddy. The center console has some quality issues; the area where the cup holders started to come apart about a year after purchase and now it's completely torn up. This is common in this version of the truck. Gas mileage is typical for a truck, about 17 MPG in the city. When we're towing our lightweight RV (5000 lbs. or so) this goes down to about 9-10 MPG.

Good truck.
Well, this is my fourth Ford, my second F-150, and is by far the best out of all of them. I've got the crew cab 4x4 with the little 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine, and this thing is a beast! It blows my mind that the smallest engine that you can get in an F-150 is still faster than most sporty sedans/hatchbacks. There's the tiniest delay of power when you step on it, but once those turbos spool up, hold on, because this will shoot you forward faster than any truck should logically be able to move. Now I know lots of people say you don't get a truck to race it, and I agree, but when you're using it as a daily driver, having that get-up-and-go certainly makes the experience more enjoyable. And to top it all off, I'm currently averaging 17 mpg, driving my daily commute up a very hilly and curvy canyon, with some light-duty hauling and towing thrown in there. It is good looking -- I've got the "Lightning Blue" color and get countless compliments. Capable -- Pulls loads without any drama whatsoever. Comfortable -- Very cozy driver's seat and a good ride for a truck. Quiet -- I love a loud raucous V8 just as much as the next guy, but this thing is whisper quiet on the highway, and to be honest, it's pretty nice. Fast -- Seriously, everyone that I've let drive the truck tells me that they have to get one because it's so fun to drive. The fact that Ford put a "sport" mode in a truck says a lot about the engine's capabilities. Economical -- As long as I keep those turbos from spinning a lot, the mpg is actually very good for a truck this size. The auto start/stop feature is less intrusive than I expected and rarely even activates during the hot summer months so as to keep the A/C nice and cold. Roomy -- The backseat is ridiculously roomy, and there's storage both behind and underneath the seats. It's also the only truck with a totally flat rear floor, which is very handy. Great infotainment -- the Sync 3 system is light years better than lots of the competition's offerings. The touchscreen is responsive, intuitive, and lightning fast. Apple CarPlay is great. Sound -- If you want your truck to sound mean and throaty when you step on it, you're in for disappointment because this little engine, even with the sound augmentation, sounds just as small as it is. Interior materials/standard features -- You have to step up to the extremely expensive trim levels to get nice soft materials on the inside as well as features that are standard on even base levels of other Ford vehicles. All in all, I can't keep a smile off of my face when driving this thing. It's a pleasure to commute to work each day. I've got mixed feelings on the aluminum, as it does offer greater mpg and towing capacity, but it seems a little more fragile (I don't really worry about that, as I never would use a truck bed without a liner anyways), and the paint seems to chip a little too easily. Then there are things that you don't expect with the aluminum, like it's a little louder on the body when it's raining or when a rock or something hits the body it rings out very loudly. All very minor things and ultimately the big benefits of aluminum outweigh the small trivial drawbacks. I think all truck manufacturers, even Chevy with those ridiculous commercials, will eventually make the switch. Can't comment too much on reliability. Truck has been rock solid so far, and in the almost three years that the 2.7 EcoBoost has been available, I've heard very few complaints. Ford knows their way around a turbo engine by now, and of the four Fords that I've had, I've never had an issue. If you're looking for an extremely well-thought out and meticulously engineered truck to get work done, look no further. Far and away the best truck that can be purchased today.
