Our vehicle is reliable, safe, a pretty blue, four wheel drive, and spacious.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

The problems we have had is that it rusts really bad and easily along the bottom of the sides of the truck. The vehicle performs really well and runs great. It is dependable and reliable. We did have a problem in the winter where if we were not driving it, the vehicle wouldn't heat up. It would blow hot air. We have not been able to figure that one out. The vehicle is super comfortable and has tons of space for groceries, kids, adults, etc. I am happy with how spacious it is.

Review of my Ford F-150 by CW

2012 Ford F-150 XL

It is very reliable. Sturdy, and I like the power that it has. The horsepower is great! I do wish that it got better gas mileage however. Most of my drive is within town and therefore I start and stop a lot. It rides nice though and handles really well. Also, I've had very little issues with it in regards to repair issues, engine issue, but I did have to get new tires.

- Clifton J

Dependable, maintenance is easy.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

The F-150 is great. We are having windshield wiper issues. Once we turn them on they won't shut off. There was a recall on a part, can't remember what it was but Ford sent us a letter and had our local dealership take care of it. We did change the rotors 3 times since we bought it. Other than that, just regular maintenance.

- Kathy D

Not a satisfied customer. Truck jerks in mid driving.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

My issue with my f-150 is with the transmission I am going to assume since when I am driving it will jerk like it's trying to either downshift or something crazy. My last f-150 did the same exact thing. I have contacted ford motor company and have never gotten a response. I most likely will never buy another f150 again.

- Melissa H

Great for the family and pets.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

Hard to get in the truck high for me have to claim in ben having trouble with the brakes and sometimes it smokes when we start it up it is good when we want to take the whole family and we can take one vehicle instead of two and the bed is great for losing things and moving.

- holly M

Best truck ever. No bells or whistles. Just reliable.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

It's not fancy but reliable. I could buy a brand new truck but there is no reason to. I drive my ford every day. I have had to do a few little maintenance things here and there but the starts and runs great. I couldn't have made a better choice than my Ford f150.

- John E

Ford makes a tough truck.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

This truck has 270,000 miles on it and it is an amazing truck. It is a hardy vehicle that is worth the money. It has had minor issues that are common wear and tear on a vehicle of this age. I would recommend a f150 to anyone looking to buy. Built Ford tough.

- Holly C

With the normal maintenance, oil change, transmission change, the truck is good.

2012 Ford F-150 XL

This truck has 350,000 miles on it and is still trucking along, no oil leaks etc. The only problem it had was an aftermarket add on. It is a really dependable truck. It has been driven across central Texas from the day it was driven off the lot, in 2012.

- Sarah K

All in all I love my truck!

2012 Ford F-150 XL

Had to replace battery several time. Gets great gas mileage. Single cab is small. Drives great. No problems with the doors or windows air conditioner is really cold. Handles great around corners. Looks great. Replaced tires several times. Look the color.

Pros to owning a Ford F-150

2012 Ford F-150 XL

I enjoy our Ford F-150. It is very dependable and is easy to drive! We drive this truck more than our car because it is more spacious and can easily fit car seats, and has plenty of room for storage. This truck handles well in rain, snow, and sunshine.
