Best truck for your money.

The 2005 Ford f150 is a really excellent car for its money. Purchased in 2005, it has been used every day since. With over 280000 miles on the engine, it has really withstood the test of time. It has been in 3 accidents, and has kept my family safe through each one of them. It has a little wear and tear on it, but we were able to resurrect it a few times. The biggest issue we had was replacing the transmission. At 260, 000 miles the transmission went, but we were able to fix the truck afterwards. The best part of it, is the convenience. Everyone always needs a truck. The towing package has been put through the ringer, and has towed in upwards of double the weight it is rated for. The extended bed is extremely convenient for construction, family Christmas trees, or a night of camping with the boy scouts. The only issue the truck presents my family is the gas-guzzling feature. This thing tears through the gas tank. This is typical of a car from the time.

Nothing beats my ford f150.

Its a 2005 ford f150. For a older vehicle it has been a very reliable truck. The seats are comfortable, has a huge dash. I haven't had any problems with it using oil or water. Only problem I have had is it skipping but..That's usually a easy fix by replacing the coil packs, and like all old fords it has a squeak in undercarriage while driving..Annoying somewhat but not a major problem..The four wheel drive is a awesome feature of course! Living on a dirt road the four wheel drive comes in very handy, we love to fish so we are always pulling a boat behind it..It does a awesome job pulling with no problems. We are in the market for another vehicle and I will say we are strongly leaning towards another ford f150.

My crappy 2005 ford, f150.

I've owned the truck for sometime, I would like to get a car that's more comfortable but the truck was my dads, I have a hard time getting in and out, and it seems to never stop squeaking, no matter how many times I get it fixed. It's also a gas hog. I have doctor appointments a whole town away and gas is a joke when I put gas in it, 20 dollars only gets me to my wall mart twice and Walmart is legit not even 10 minutes from my house. Also m6 key always sticks and I am terrified it will break in the ignition one day.
