It takes my friends and I wherever we need to get to!

2005 Ford F-150 XL

The interior is fabulous and spacious, however due to the age and number of miles I've had issues with the engine in regards of the timing chain. These are all wear and tear type issues, but this has been a solid truck taking me wherever I needed to go. Never letting me down. I was hesitant on having a Ford from the things I've heard, but I would buy another. It's been such a great vehicle. This particular model has a small box but has definitely improved as the models become newer.

Not a fan of bad gas mileage.

2005 Ford F-150 XL

This vehicle sputters when it starts. Everything is manual. Gas mileage is beyond awful. The factory radio/CD player can only play the radio; the CD portion does not work. If there is nothing in the bed, the vehicle fishtails. The muffler is currently falling off and is barely holding on by a wire to keep it in place.

Ford f-150, take it or break it?

2005 Ford F-150 XL

The starter goes out frequently, and the speedometer is in kilometers?? Truck is good for moving big things or trying to get a task done or family vacations because everyone can fit. Another downside is that the truck takes so much gas!! 40 bucks does not even get you a half a tank. More like a quarter of a tank.

- Ashley E

Great, reliable and ready for the job kind of truck!

2005 Ford F-150 XL

I have had my truck for a few years now, it's a great, reliable truck! Ford is the main brand my family owns, and we've never had any major issues with our vehicles or recalls as I hear about other makes & models! Very dependable and strong trucks for all job types! Always ready for the job!

Old red, built ford tough. Still gets us where we need to go.

2005 Ford F-150 XL

Have to put it in overdrive to get it over 30 mph, I need to work on it, it has been a good truck we still use it everyday, she is bright red, our big red truck, we like the extended cab and 4 doors so super convenient, can fit 6 people, sometimes however it's hard to park in tight spaces.

Almost 200K miles with no major problems or major expense.

2005 Ford F-150 XL

My pickups name is Casper. It has almost 200k miles on it. It's been very dependable and very useful in so many ways. I've pulled trailers and RV's. It's comfortable when traveling. Routine maintenance is affordable and I haven't had any major problems or expenses. I very happy with it.

The space is perfect, fits my big family

2005 Ford F-150 XL

Runs and drives like a dream. Seats are super comfy. Lots of room. Fits my big family. It could be better on gas. But for a truck its size its gets pretty good gas mileage. Our kids love it because its big, and a truck. The back windows roll down. Which is a huge plus for us.

- Kayla H

The seats are very comfortable and spacious.

2005 Ford F-150 XL

It's really nice and spacious! The only problem with the car is two things, parking spots and gas tank. It is sometimes difficult to find a parking spot and it is also expensive at times when you buy gas. Reliability is good and I love the style and interior of the car.

- Mel N

Pros and cons of a 5.4 l ford f150.

2005 Ford F-150 XL

Truck performs well on highway and off road. Reliable but has common problems such as gas cap cover coming loose, oil filter adapter leaking, and timing issues with the engine. (5.4 l ) usually after 150,000 miles. Other than that sturdy truck that is easy to maintain.

- Jacob P

Huge truck but too big for me

2005 Ford F-150 XL

It's just too big for me to drive. I prefer smaller SUV type vehicles because that is what I am comfortable driving but it serves its purpose and gets me where I need to go. Runs great, looks appealing, hauls if it needs to.. just too big for me personally

- Amber B

It's a special edition f150 street boss edition tuned by roush.

2005 Ford F-150 XL

It's a great truck, would recommend to anyone that is looking for a good work truck, only cons are the gas mileage and no 4x4. It still runs and drive strong for being a 2005, I've had zero problems with it other then a recall that ford fixed for free.
