Dependable and Reliable Transportation

2006 Ford F-150 XL

This has been a great reliable truck. The only problems have been as a result of just being an older vehicle. The automatic CD changer/ player does not operate anymore, although the radio itself is in working condition. Some very minor wearing of the letters/numbers on buttons have been noticed. The windshield cleaning squirting apparatuses often gets plugged up and requires a flushing out so to speak. We have been able to successfully clear with a compressor purchased from Lowes used for construction projects. All other functions have been superb. I have always done the routine maintenance and oil changes, and honestly have never had any vehicle operating problems.

2006 Ford F-150! First Brand new vehicle we ever bought.

2006 Ford F-150 XL

I Love the smooth ride of the Ford brand vehicle. We did have some problems with the rear end of the 2006. We had to get it replaced 3 times since we've owned it, and we bought it brand new. One replacement was done under warranty, the other two were out of pocket. Otherwise, this pickup has been very reliable and performed well. We use it now mainly for short trips to run errands and such. It has all the features that a 2006 should have, and it's a Great vehicle.

Review for 2006 ford f-150.

2006 Ford F-150 XL

Our 2006 ford f-150 has been a very reliable vehicle! It drives and rides well too. We have done regular maintenance on it is all. There was the spark plug recall so we had to do that. An almost $1000 job but it was also due for a tune up and plugs, but the price was so high due to ford's hard to get out spark plugs that sparked this recall in the first place. Oh well the truck is well worth it. Love driving it!!

We are Built Ford Tough!!

2006 Ford F-150 XL

I love this truck. It has a lot of space to fit multiple passengers. The speakers work really awesome. 1 thing that is annoying is that there is always a tick and was told that's normal. It doesn't have cruise control but you learn to live without. Otherwise it has power locks and windows. Also has a big enough bed that we can move a lot of stuff.

Great vehicle if not commuting a lot

2006 Ford F-150 XL

The gas mileage is horrible but I live it other than that. It rides very smooth and heads been extremely reliable. With normal maintenance to the vehicle it is up to 240,000 miles and I haven't had many issues. It did get some rust holes on the rocker panel though which concerns me.

Great, old but better, long lasting

2006 Ford F-150 XL

She is an old truck but it works great it was out for a couple of years, but now that is back in the road it a pretty good truck. The problems it had was the transmission but that's because it's an old truck things have to stop working after a while, but it's doing really great now.

I most enjoy the large mirror and how elevated I feel when driving.

2006 Ford F-150 XL

very comfortable ride, large interior cabin, large side mirrors are a plus. The roll down windows are a bit inconvenient but they are not bothersome. The back of the middle seat does not have cup holders but they are in the doors and on the floor in the middle

Ford F150 - the truck of your dreams

2006 Ford F-150 XL

This Ford pickup has been very reliable. Spacious front seats, comfortable rear seats, lots of storage space, great handling and sturdy design. I highly recommend this vehicle for anyone wanting a pickup truck for everything from moving to everyday commuting.

God of trucks: the beast of trucks

2006 Ford F-150 XL

The ford f150 Rides so extremely smooth yet powerfully. It is one of the most amazing trucks I have ever driven. I use it to do all my farm work and daily house chores when needed. It's super sturdy and strong. Has a powerful engine and purrs like a kitten.

- Ashley P

2006 F150 is a great vehicle. For long distance traveling too.

2006 Ford F-150 XL

It is a great truck. I drive 80+ miles a day going back and forth to work and it has been a trooper! Handles well in rain and snow. I wish it was 4 wheel drive though. Little boggy when going up steep hills. Takes time to accelerate. Gas mileage is decent.

- Sarah C

The radio and air conditioner are the most amazing things in my truck.

2006 Ford F-150 XL

I have a Ford f-150 four door. It's amazing. Nice interior and exterior. Still great as new! I don't think I've ever had a problem with my current truck. In the past year I've only done a new tire change. Which is very good if your on a budget like myself
