#1226 of 1265 2004 Super Crew
Jul 30, 2003 (9:04 pm)
A friend that works at a local Ford dealer told me this eve that they have a 2004 F-150 Super Crew at his dealer here in AZ.
I guess the truck is making the rounds for all to see it at the dealer.
#1227 of 1265 Mileage!!!

I just bought a F-150 SuperCrew 4x4 (FX4) a month ago. I drive about 80/20 freeway/city and I've been getting 13 mpg. The sticker says 15 city and 19 highway. Any advice?

Give it some time, put some miles on it. Even though they don't have real break in periods these days, the engines seem to get their act together after they've had some use. Mine ran smoother and mileage improved around 5K miles.

I have a 2001, 5.4 and 25k miles, I average 13mpg during normal driving in the los angeles area. I work 4 miles of street driving away from my house. I use the freeways 3 times a week. Only if I do a freeway driving will it get better, slightly.. The best I ever got was a trip to Vegas, got 16 doing 75mph, got 15 doing 80 on the way back. I do have a lead foot and always first away from the stops. My truck is 2 yrs old and EVERYONE here drives one, there are at least 5 within 2 blocks of my house and 4 at my work. There is no need to drive slow so everyone can see my cool truck anymore. ONE BIG thing, I DO get better mileage with mid grade gas, at least 1-2mpg better.
#1230 of 1265 Advice needed on pricing of a 2000 F-150
Aug 20, 2003 (12:46 pm)
A friend of my husband's is selling his 2000 F-150 supercab, 5.4 EFI V8, w/cap & bedliner, 16 more months on an extended warranty, 22,000 miles, mint condition, heavy duty electrical/cooling, 4x4 off-road package and a few more perks. He's asking $17,500. I usually do extensive research on vehicles before purchasing and I am starting to learn about Fords. But I've never owned one before, so I thought I'd come to the place where folks have had experience!
I've done some searching at Edmond's on used truck prices, but haven't found where i can enter all the extras (especially the cap). I'd appreciate any insight you all can give me, ASAP.
#1231 of 1265 Slip Differential
Aug 20, 2003 (3:02 pm)
Need some advice. Plan on buying a '03 Supercrew in the next couple of weeks. I used Edmunds website to solicite offers on different ones. Its worked well so far with 17 vehicles quoted from 10 dealers. My delima is the best offer is a Lariet with 5.4L V8 and standard differential. Its the only one out of 17 that doesn't have this option. I don't plan on towing anything, but I'm not sure what abilities I'll lose if I don't have it.

#1234 of 1265 tkenny's mileage
Sep 12, 2003 (7:06 pm)
tkenny, have you tried feeding it premium gas for a few tanks to see if it improves further? .... Pity, but it's a big heavy vehicle and there's no diesel option. (Yet). A more cautious driver content to be last away from the stop sign might add a mile or two per gallon, but that's as much as can be asked. 800 lb more weight is more then going to offset any theoretical gain in the reworked 5.4
#1235 of 1265 2004s IN STOCK AND WORKING IN LAS VEGAS
Sep 12, 2003 (7:14 pm)
While goofing off in Vegas this week on vacation!
Spotted several 04 150 Crews decked out as Yellow Cabs. WOW....
Stopped by local Ford dealer..They must of had 50+ 04s on the lot !
Heres a good laugh....A big GM shindig was in town at the Sands convention center. They had a set up at the Thomas & Mack center with a bunch of new GM vehicles to test drive..........
On the corner at the entrance was a new 04 Crew hanging by a crane as you drove into the lot with a big banner saying "NEW FORD F-150 HERE NOW!!!!"
Bet those GM honchos were NOT pleased !......geo
