Owned 2005 XLT Crew 4x4 with 4.6 for 14 years

2005 Ford F-150 xlt

Bought the truck in Nov 2005. It has been an excellent, dependable truck with no real issues. Had to replace the coil over plugs (COPs) and plugs due to a misfire. Put a radiator in it a few years ago due to small leak. Recently did the ball joints, tierods, CV axles, and struts because, at 155k miles, I thought it was time. I pull a 6k trailer a few times a year without issue. I'm big on maintenance and invested money in a big tranny cooler and pan for the towing. It has been a great truck that still looks almost as good as it did the day I bought it. The 4.6 is a bit thirsty and doesn't win any drag races, but it makes up for it in dependability and durability.

Frank's Truck ! Best Friend I Have!

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

This Truck is a great vehicle that I love to drive around town and on long trips. I know I can count on my truck to run real good. It uses a good bet of gas, but that is because I have to carry a lot of tools with me. I have owned three ford trucks and I think this is the best one. I only wish I had bought the model that had larger motor. That way if you need the extra power for pulling a large trailer or a load of gravel, at least you know that you have the power to do just about anything.

Overall good truck for the price.

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

We really like the comfort the ford f-150 has. Plenty of room for our family. With a baby and a hundred pound dog, we still have room! We love the large truck bed for when we need to mainly help our friends move! Not the easiest on gas but that's okay. We knew what we were signing up for when we got it! We have had a few problems with it but it is an older vehicle so we need to keep up with her!

It has the suicide doors on it.

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

My f150 now has 100500 miles in it and does not leak a bit of fluid anywhere, it is as tight as the day it was built. I had the spark plugs changed and it had new style of plugs from the factory that would break off down in the block and took a special tool to remove it. I didn't like that as it cost me $1000.00 to have fixed. Other than that I love my truck!

headlights was somewhat dime and after washing the lens they became alive again.

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

My vehicle is very dependable. I keep it maintenance; including oil changes and tires rotated.I've only had to change the starter. Recently, the left rear window power motor went out.. I bought this vehicle used and it has been a great buy for my family. The fuses have blown a few times and it is an easy fix because I keep fuses in the glove box.

Awesomeness truck

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

Bought this truck used on 2011 and it's been a gas hog but I do have a heavy foot. Did have to get transmission replaced 2x i do wonder why specially since happening after warranty was up so that was a big slice in my wallet. Has kept my kids n my hubby n I safe for years I absolutely love this truck

- Sheavon Trenkler

Affordable and sturdy, not a lot of maintenance needed.

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

None, just regular maintenance needed. I regularly change the oil and check fluids. Change tires and have had no problems. If you are currently going to purchase a ford, be sure and do your research. Body has held up well. No rust and solid. If you want a good truck, consider ford before 2006.

19 year old truck still in great shape!

2005 Ford F-150 XLT

Nice used truck that has held up for 19 years! It does not get the greatest gas mileage but it still runs great! We have done repairs recently but nothing too major! I love the cruise control. The leather seats are a bit worn but the truck is 19 years old!
