Pros & Cons of a Ford F150

2008 Ford F-150 XL

Well depending on the tuner you put it in it can shut the whole engine down. The tuner we used when in performance mode if you do not run 93 octane it will flood the motor. Have already had to replace the intake manifold on it as well. It is great in snow with the 4-wheel drive it is just difficult to get the dash light to illuminate when in 4 wheel high. Plenty of interior space as well as with a short bed still has plenty of cargo space. Truck over all isn't terrible to drive but guzzles gas like nobody's business depending on the weather. It get better fuel mileage in Winter for sure. Beware of Summer.

My reliable pickup truck.

2008 Ford F-150 XL

I have a ford f-150. I have driven it for two years now and despite some minor problems, I do not see myself driving anything else. I love the sunroof, in dash factory screen, and 8 in factory subwoofer! It is a comfortable ride, smooth feel. It is dependable since I do landscaping and can put my tool in the bed of the truck. I give the truck a 8 out of 10!

Ford F-150 great deal. Durable car

2008 Ford F-150 XL

Very reliable. Only issues I've had with the car is I had to replace the power steering line after 10 years but other than that it's been great. I expect to have it at least another 10 years. The air conditioning works too well. Fogs up windows really easily which is annoying but manageable

- Brighton P

It's big and reliable for heavy work.

2008 Ford F-150 XL

The problem with the car is that the fuel cost is too much and it's a bit big and clunky. In term of performance, It's a 5 liters V8, plenty of powers, It's very reliable and comfortable to drive if you like big cars. It doesn't look the best like other truck, but it's a solid truck.

Ford Trucks 'Best Ever' I will drive nothing else.

2008 Ford F-150 XL

The best truck that I have ever owned. It's tough for the work I do. Drives great comfortable seats and smooth ride. It gets great gas mileage. 16 miles to the gallon. Great ac that cools you off quickly. My friends say it's the fastest a.c they have been in to cool so quickly


Rides smooth for a pickup

2008 Ford F-150 XL

Runs great. I've had some electrical problems when it rains but outside of that nothing mechanical has gone wrong. For being a truck it rides smoothly. Mine came equipped with a backup camera which is also really nice! I will definitely buy another one.

Not bad, won't last long

2008 Ford F-150 XL

Good to have for a few years but don't rely on it lasting any longer. Takes forever to pick up speed and lots of problems constantly.
