2007 Ford F-150 xlt 4x4 advice


Recommended Posts

Hey, I have found 2007 for about 7000.00 in my area. It has 200k miles on it. I test drove it the other day and it felt good. It’s on its 3rd . ownerCar fax shows maintenance has been kept up, spark plugs replaced at 150k. Transmission fluid changed every 60k or so but had the transmission changed out at 160k along with timing chain.  I didn’t notice anything bad with it. Seems to run good. Any advice or anything in particular to inspect for this model?

Local towing or travel?  Locally, it is probably fine and not a huge deal if it breaks down.  Traveling - don't do it.  I speak from experience, nursing along my '02 Avalanche for much longer than I should have years ago.  Still a great truck that my buddy bought (and owns to this day), but reliability is the name of the game when towing long distances.

My tow truck is at 142k.  I dont know how much more it will stay as my tow rig.  the chances of it being unreliable is getting bigger by the moment.

Tough one @williemon.  I agree with @Nitrousbird .  If you are keeping it local, I'd say maybe.  Traveling, definite no in my opinion.  There is a lot of risk that comes with buying a truck with that many miles.  I have buddies that have purchased high mileage F-150s and have gotten another 100K out of them, and I've had some that ended up putting way more money into them than spent to purchase.  Personally, I wouldn't purchase.  Especially as a tow vehicle.  All depends on your comfort level for risk.  Saving money up front doesn't always translate to a good deal.  Good luck, let us know what you decide.
