The step side is helpful and sturdy, it's not slippery or too small. Yes Review Date: 23rd October, 2005. But that 3mpg is a big deal! Sure,your F150 will respond very well to the usual stuff. My front bumper is a little messed up, but other than that, there is nothing wrong, the thing is a tank! It is a very reliable truck. I pull up to one of those complicated four way traffic lights, the Caddy is off as soon as I bring it to a stop.
Obviously something smaller would have been better but it goes without saying. I have not had a chance on the highway yet. I have had this truck since it was brand new for about 11 years now, it has never let me down. He has supposedly done wind tunnel testing in both a Nascar and Ford tunnels to prove it is legit aerodynamic improvement. No backing out of the space, dropping her in drive and then pulling off.
My front bumper is a little messed up, but other than that, there is nothing wrong, the thing is a tank! Other than standard maintenance such as oil changes, brakes, tires, and tune-ups, it has not cost me a thing in repairs. Accelerate fairly briskly to a target speed-speed limit probably-and then completely lift off the gas and glide until you have dropped about 8-10 mph. At lower city speeds it does work better.

Yes Review Date: 22nd August, 2011 Faults: Nothing has gone wrong with this truck.
There is more of course, but you get the idea. The truck just slows down to quickly say from 65-50. Keep good before after records- With just the above very modest hypermiling I get about 205 better with my old-98,202,300 miles-Suburban. Face out parking where you can as well. Once this one finally does give up the ghost, I will without any doubt buy another one.

These are the kinds of things that you should consider first. It has never left me stranded. Look under Aerodynamics for his post. Descent fuel economy with the f150 is plenty possible, although upper 20s i've never done. Great to drive on the highway. Passenger side power door lock is weak and works %10 of the time. This truck has a lot of power, has a great 4 wheel drive system, and is very comfortable to drive.
I can't afford to fix the damage, so I cut out the air bags, and the truck still runs and drives like the day I bought it. Leaks water through roof in the back, somewhere above the sliding rear window. This is what most folks do in city driving. Before tossing your truck, first, consider the mission. I just find it annoying and not any more productive that modulating the pedal to accomidate the road conditions. Up down and right work. In Park the needle doesnt point right at the P.
