In February of 2011 I was assigned a F-150 X cab 3.7 L pick up for my job. As of today. 11/13/13 I have accumulated approx. 150,000 miles. This truck has been taken care of well, but not babied by any stretch. It has never failed me. I literally trust it with my life every day. It does not matter if it’s raining, snowing, hot or cold. The ride quality is as good s the day I got it. I have a bit of a back problem, but can take extended trips in this truck with no major problems. I have driven as far as 12 hour trips with no issues. I cannot do this in any vehicle. Maintenance reliability was excellent. I replaced a battery, front struts (one leaked) and a parking brake cable. I attribute the cable to heavy use as I live on a hill. Traction, for a two wheel drive has been amazing in all conditions. Handling has been great. At times I forget I’m driving a full size truck. In 150K, the 3.7 L engine has not burned or leaked a drop of oil. There have been no other leaks of any other fluid as well. Granted there are a lot of highway miles, but I have not had a brake job as well. It is very hard to find something not to like about this truck. I have steel wheels. The edges show a little bit of corrosion. A better edge covering primer or E cote may solve this, but hey, they are just steel rims. I like the time it takes for the engine temp to come up, it’s pretty quick, nice in the winter. High beams on the head lights could be a little brighter, not a big deal though. All the knobs and buttons worked as advertised and are robust and easy to use, even with gloves on. I learned to stick with the oem tires. When I changed tires, I went with a different brand/style and it knocked my mpg down by approx. 1-2 mpg. Power locks and windows are still running strong after a lot of use. The exhaust system has held up well after 3 winters in the rust belt. The finish and sheet metal has held up very good as well. The upholstery is very robust. I had to steam clean and scrub it several times. No rattles in the cab and dash area, zero! That drives me nuts more than anything. All lights are still good, I run headlights all the time. I cant say enough good about this truck! My only regret is not having the funds to buy back the lease. I should have planned better. I will hate to see this truck go. I hope the replacement is a Ford. Thank you for making a solid dependable truck that not only works, but I’m proud as an American to drive every day! Kind Regards, Jerry H.
