Comfort with power in a reliable truck.

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

This truck has been very reliable with minimal upkeep besides routine maintenance (there was a slow oil leak that was easily fixed last fall). We bought it 2 years ago and it is now up to 50,000 miles. Drives great in winter (both on snowy roads and icy roads). Cab is very spacious with room for 3 in the back if needed (we have our kid in the car seat and fold the other 2 seats down so our dog can lay on the floor). Not the greatest mileage vehicle but it is a truck so good for what you would expect; can fill the back with lots of hunting gear and can pull people out fairly easily if they are stuck in the ditch. Runs smooth, cab is quiet, need to be careful about blind spots with backing up as it is a big truck.

F-150 comfort on the inside and rugged on the outside. Great truck!

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

No major problems with the vehicle but I am getting some rust spots in the front even though I always clean and wax. Also, I keep having problems with the back power window. They eventually had to replace the entire window and housing to fix it. No major mechanical issues to this point and it has 65k miles on it. Power everything for features, backup camera in the rear view which I like. Very comfortable on the inside and the v8 has plenty of power to tow anything I need it to. Really love my truck.

4 wheel drive, can tow and haul plenty in this truck but it has all the features.

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

Easy to drive, comfortable seats, nice display live the 4 wheel drive, lots room in front and back, love fact that I can use my cell phone thru the truck so I can drive hands free. Love the fact that I have plenty of storage in back seat area and in bed. Mainly brought to tow bass boat for fishing. Couldn't live without the 4 wheel drive.

The ford F150 is a all around great vehicle!

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

The ford f150 fx4 crew cab has been an awesome vehicle for our family. We have had very little issues with the vehicle. The ford f150 has had no trouble pulling a trailer or camper. This vehicle is also great for a small family as there is ample room in the backseat area with plenty of legroom. I would buy this vehicle again

Off road edition of the Ford F-150

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

Since this vehicle is the off road edition, the only thing that I do not like about this vehicle are stock features of the vehicle. Even if the original price would increase, the truck should be sold with a lift kit and different tires. If the buyer do not like these options, they should buy a different edition of the F-150.

Long lasting and reliable.

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

Highly reliable. Durable. Gas mileage can be a, title low depending on driving conditions. Definitely the vehicle you want for big projects and/or bad weather. Very comfortable. Spacious interior with plenty of room for passengers while still hauling other items. Mine has a great stereo and heated seats.

- Michelle K

I really like this truck.

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

This truck rides very nicely and gentle great fuel mileage. One issue I have noticed is a slight lack of power. There is virtually no low end power. The four wheel drive also fails to engage without putting the truck in reverse and moving 4-5 feet. Other than that, the truck is really nice.

- Scott S

I love my vehicle my truck is roomy and I can haul all kinds of great things.

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

The number one problem with this truck is it runs my battery down and I can't find the source if it. The good thing is its roomy & comfortable. The performance is smooth, I love the interior and I have done very little maintenance on this vehicle. I love all the extra offered.

Extremely comfortable for long drives.

2012 Ford F-150 FX4

F 150 is a great truck obviously for hauling but also road trips. Smooth ride lots of legroom very comfortable. Basic maintenance is all it is ever needed, oil changes brakes and tires. No engine issues ever. We will be in the market for a new one soon.
