The Ford f-150 is not just a rugged truck, but also a comfortable family vehicle.

Our Ford f-150 is a great family truck. The truck seats a total of 6, and the back seat is very roomy. We have a shorter truck bed, however there is still plenty of space for hauling things. We took this truck on a 2800 mile round trip road trip and it was such a smooth ride. There was plenty of room in the back seat for our older son as well as the car seat, some snacks, a diaper bag, and a bag with bottles and formula. We were able to tow a 6 by 12 trailer packed with household items from a storage unit with no problem. I really like that this truck has the ability to move the pedals forward or backwards so this way my husband nor I have to move the seat when we switch drivers. This truck has proven to be very reliable and very tough. The only problem that has come up with our truck is that occasionally the turn signal will not work if you move the steering wheel to the lowest position, however we were informed that this can be easily fixed. My husband and son absolutely love this truck. I would recommend this truck to anyone looking for a truck that is durable, can easily haul and tow, but also happens to be family friendly.

Firm steady ride, powerful yet maneuverable.

So far, I am enjoying this vehicle that I bought used. I broke a leaf spring bracket but the repair should be inexpensive. It drives nicely. The seats are comfortable and the rear seats (crew cab) fold down for larger items. However, there is very little storage space behind the rear seats. In my regular cab truck, there was much more storage in the cab. The ride is firm and the visibility is good. Although I would prefer a full 8 foot bed, the short bed makes it easier to maneuver and to park. There is a small compartment in the console, but it includes two extra cup holders that could be accessed from the rear seat when the center console is down. The sound system works well and the speakers are placed properly for the best sound.

What's up with Ford trucks. There is a button that raises or lowers the pedals.

The dash lights come on and off at any given time. The air conditioner does not work. It is a common problem with those trucks. I like the truck. There really is not much more. Well, the code for unlocking the door works when it wants to. The interior is beige. Do not like it. It's a good truck if you need a good work truck. It can take a beating. The truck automatically locks once it is in drive and you put on the brake. Sometimes it is delayed. When the lock goes down, if your arm is on the window, it will grab your skin and it hurts. Was thinking about reporting this to the Ford company.
