Overall a good basic truck that is reliable

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

I had to replace the spark plugs twice so far and it requires a specific extraction tool to get out and I don't like that so I have to take it to the mechanic. It handles great and has lots of room for friends and family. Has enough horsepower for what I do and I have owned for the last 11 years and it is still going strong. It has decent fuel economy for the size of the vehicle but that is also a downfall of the truck when gas prices go up since it holds 30 gallons in the tank.

- Zach H

Excellent truck with a great smooth ride.

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

I was really impressed with the Ford F-150 when I originally purchased it. I find the interior to be quite spacious, with seating for six. I love the way the truck handles and when I have passengers they always compliment how smooth of a ride the truck has. I would say the overall performance of the truck is Amazing! I love my F-150.

- Jessica C

Solid pickup truck, worth a buy for the right price

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

Good, reliable vehicle. Not spectacular, I was happier with the Chevy Blazer I had before it, but this truck has been good. It rusts fairly easily, and in my experience is not as good in winter weather as my previous vehicle (surprisingly). But no major issues. I will say it handles unbelievably easy.

- James G

Pretty Good Car, would recommend

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

The brakes are sometimes having problems. But overall good car and 300% would keep. The cup holders are nice the seats are comfy the extra room is pretty good for moving, and also going out to camp if you have a big set up. The mpg could be better but that is pretty much it for the car and I love it.

This isn't your Sunday drive f-150.

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

For being a 2008 it has 126.251 miles. It just had to have the injectors cleaned out due to the 4x4 terrain every weekend for the first 4 years. It's a crew cab with captain seats. Has 6 disc CD changer, with rear view camera. The wheels are welds racing with 4 inch lift kit from factory.

- Miguel M

Very roomy and a very nice drive.

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

My truck has been very reliable and drives great. The seats are nice and big and the ride is pretty smooth. I do miss not having the phone pairing but that is because of the age. I would recommend a Ford F150 to anyone. I will consider a Ford when I am ready to get another truck.

- Dennis H

The F150 is helpful and dependable.

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

My vehicle has been very dependable and has been great assisting friend and family. It has assisted friends moving, yard work, etc. In addition, the truck has had a few problems but it is an older vehicle so it is expected. When it is time, I will purchase another F150

- William K

Best truck on the market.

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

The vehicle performs everything I need. I primarily drive it in the winter and for garden and home projects. It has a shell and plenty of people and cargo capacity. I highly recommend the ford f150 this will likely be the only type of truck I will ever own.

- Steve A

My ford truck has everything I need. Good size inside and enough horsepower.

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

No problems with my truck. It is a very dependable vehicle and has never let me down. I bought my truck used at a local dealership and have enjoyed it since. I needed a four door as we were having our 3rd kid when I bought it. Ford products are always good.

- Eddie C

One bad flaw

2008 Ford F-150 XLT

The f150 5.4 still has timming chain problems. Other than that its very reliable.
