          Great long lasting work truck.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          My 2006 Ford F-150 XLT is a big truck. It is 8 cylinder so it does go through more gas than a smaller vehicle. I have a long bed which can come in handy at times but I don't believe the very few times it has that it is worth the long bed, I've realized that I don't ever want a long bed truck again(in my opinion the long bed trucks should be for companies or commercial use more than a daily driver). Having the longer bed limits me to fit in the garage and is much harder to drive and maneuver in traffic and congested areas as well as a hassle to park in and out of spots. The truck is a good working truck, it is durable and has a long owner life. I'm happy with the mechanics with this truck and it's what is most important to me, it's useless if it's in the shop or doesn't run, so overall I'd recommend the Ford F-150 just not the long bed, and remember big trucks go through lots of gas.

          Most dependable truck ever. #fordowner4life.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Truck has good payload for hauling, comfortable inside with lots of room. Dependable, never left me stranded. Can drive a long way with the gas light on. Downside, you have to take it to an actual shop to have the spark plugs changed. You can try to do it yourself, but the rentable tool sucks and breaks, and if the tool breaks you can bet so has the spark plug. Once you attempt to do it and fail, no auto shop will fix it for you without changing a ton of cash.

          Ford F150 thought I was going to hate it.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          I have a 2006 Ford F150 I thought that I was not going to like it when I bout it. The truck that I wanted was a Chevy Silverado but could not afford it. This truck really did grow on me tho even tho I'm a Chevy guy. I have only had to replace parts that are known to go bad and wear parts such as brakes and tires and such. So overall I am very happy with this truck. One thing that could be better is the interior like radio and such.

          - Michael F

          Pretty over practical is more or less the only way I can describe it.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Well the vehicle looks great and turns heads wherever I go. But it has to be known that with the 5.4 liter V8 Triton's that there are mechanical problems that you WILL run in to. I figured there was no way that all trucks just like that could have the same problems, but they all do. In short, it really depends on how much money you are willing to dump into it to have a good looking truck.

          2006 Ford F-150 Super Cab 4 wheel drive

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Need air conditioning clutch, manifold exhaust. Truck runs good. Four wheel drive makes it ideal for working off road. Truck comes with towing package. Comes with five point trailer plug and seven point trailer plug for pulling trailer with electric brakes. Truck is super cab with two row seating. Both front and back vents for heating and air conditioning. Comes with 4.7 L engine.

          - Glenn E

          The 1st owner put a protectant spray on the entire underbody. Zero rust!

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          The only problems with my truck would be how rough of a ride it is and the spark plugs. When the spark plugs need to be replaced, I am not that is not easy as they break upon removal... This makes it quite time consuming and more expensive. There's general wear and tear, but those are easy fixes. For having 183k miles, this vehicle is in surprisingly great condition!

          - Whitney Timmer T

          Ford crew cab four wheel drive, the good and bad.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Good, is the crew cab lots of room, no major problems with engine, the four wheel drive has been able to go everywhere, never got stuck., very comfortable ride. The not so good, rust underneath of bed (including the cable for the spare that went flying down the road one day), lots of small problems, bed is too small. Also does not get very good gas mileage.

          - Adam Q

          Very roomy, comfortably, lots of space. Very reliable vehicle

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          I have not really had much problems with this vehicle. As long as you take care of the vehicle, it should run for years. But my paint is chipping a little on my truck. It kind if takes a lot of gas. It is an older model vehicle but it is still running fine. About 13 years old now. I have had it for at least 2 years and no problems at all.

          - Chris C

          Every memory I have had with my kids has happened with it.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          The only real issue I have with my f-150 is the body rust. It is a known ford issue but after a while it gets tiresome. Besides that, I love everything about it. It is hauled everything I have ever needed it to and made it everywhere up and including 600 mile trips; I'd get another f-150 as my next vehicle if they were not so pricey.

          - John G

          Ford f150 easy to own easy to maintain.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          For the 100k miles I have put on my truck I have only put about 2 grand of work in to in and most of that was normally maintenance like the clutch spark plugs etc. I do an the scheduled smaller maintenance on my own. Rotate tires, change air filter and oil. Ect. I love my truck and I take care of it.

          - Brent R

          Good overall truck that I can depend on .

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Main problem is that it sometimes leaks water in the passenger windows the seal gets open over time, it's been reliable for me and overall like it. Rust does start to develop on the bumper and from sides from this type of vehicle. This vehicle has 4 wheel drive and love that. Interior holds up well.

          - Lance S

          The best ford truck ever to be invented.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          I love my truck. It has magnaflow pipes. The motor is perfect. Some of the maintenance work on the truck can be easily replaced by yourself. The bad thing can be the control arms or ball joints which can cause you to break your hub assembly. The truck runs perfect and can last you for many years.

          - Jessica B

          Check out the F150 informative review!

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Overall safe and strong vehicle, but has above average maintenance and fuel costs, but long term durability. Cost of ownership is sort of expensive, but it's also a reliable workhorse you can depend on most of the time if maintained well. Depending on your needs, this could be a great choice.

          - Paul P

          Very Reliable truck. Would buy another one.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          I bought this vehicle brand new and have had only one major issue with it. I had to have the transmission rebuilt at about 120,000 miles. Other than that it has been a very reliable vehicle. It now has approximately 147,000 miles on it. My next vehicle will more than likely be a Ford F150.

          - Barry G

          I've put this truck through hell and back with work and it still is running good

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Great vehicle. I would definitely get another one but I would highly recommend a higher trim package. One of the only main problems I had was the transmission and PCM. This seems to be a common problem among F150's around this years model. Something they could have definitely improved on

          - Liam H

          Tough and rugged, last a long time if taken care of.

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Its lasted more than 200 thousand miles. Yes like every vehicle it has to go through repairs and tune ups. It has had a fire and has had minimal damage. I love my truck. I have never had a vehicle last this long and with so many miles more to go. If you want a durable truck its a ford.

          - Annie G

          Beautiful truck that makes you feel like everyone's looking at you

          2006 Ford F-150 XLT

          Great looking, reliable truck. Can transport anything you need. I hate that it's 3 seater, it's definitely not a family vehicle. We love to take it to the drive in and go to watch fireworks. Great for camping. doesn't have enough give when going up hills or getting out of the mud
