The F-150 SuperCrew has a large and versatile cab, but feels ungainly and uncomfortable compared with newer trucks. The powertrain performs well, although it isn't as smooth and quiet as some competing models, such as the Chevrolet Avalanche. However, it got a poor in the IIHS offset crash-test result.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"great driving"

Gary S., ND (2000 Ford F-150)

"That it is still in very good condition considering age of vehicle. Has plenty of power for a F-150 and 4 wheel drive is great on back roads."

Anonymous, CA (2000 Ford F-150)

"The standard transmission is wonderful. I owned the truck for 13 years and never had transmission issues. This truck, when taken care of, will last a very long time."

Joseph B., TX (2000 Ford F-150)

"has good power-four wheel drive is excellant"

Anonymous, NY (2000 Ford F-150)

"Drives good with plenty of power"

Anonymous, MN (2000 Ford F-150)

"Acceleration is more than adequate but the engine sounds like it's going to break apart above 4,000 RPM. It seldom goes there, though (usually uphill towing a trailer), and hasn't actually broken apart. Handling is better than I expect from a truck."

Ronald S., CO (2000 Ford F-150)

"Love my F150, however it's always had a stiff clutch, which I've adapted to."

Anonymous, WA (2000 Ford F-150)

"Acceleration is terrible and I get no road feel from the steering. It almost seems like the steering wheel is loose."

Traci T., SC (2000 Ford F-150)

"Ride is soft. The start to stop acceleration is good."

John P., BC (2000 Ford F-150)

"5.4L V8 gives great acceleration."

Anonymous, SC (2000 Ford F-150)

"Considering the vehicle is a 1997 with 217000 miles and the engine is a 4.6 lit. v8 the engine has always done what I have needed. However, by today's standards it works a little harder in entrance lanes on the expressway. Otherwise, it is still very good."

Anonymous, TN (2000 Ford F-150)

"It is slow to accelerate, gulps fuel, but it runs pretty well for a repaired engine and badly rusting frame. It is still very powerful for pulling out trees and hauling heavy loads. I only use it for farm chores and hauling large loads."

Robert M., VA (2000 Ford F-150)

"Incredibly reliable. No repairs needed."

Anonymous, MD (2000 Ford F-150)

"After 19 years, it is still great and fun to drive. And it still looks great."

Anonymous, IL (2000 Ford F-150)

"For an 18 year old truck it still rides and runs good. The air-conditioning still works good with no repairs in the past. I did have trouble with water leaks which were solved by replacing both front and back glass. I have fluid leaks oil and transmission but just check levels often as it is too costly to repair and the leaks are small."

Mike-Stephanie M., TX (2000 Ford F-150)

"great handling"

Gary S., ND (2000 Ford F-150)

"Dependability"

Terrence C., AZ (2000 Ford F-150)

"Plenty of power."

Dennis N., PA (2000 Ford F-150)

"What is there to say - it is a V8 and has the expected get up and go expected. Despite being a full size truck - it handles extremely well in all the seasons of the year - it is especially sure footed in winter."

Gilbert S., IL (2000 Ford F-150)

"This vehicle has satisfied all expectations, driving,reliability, comfort and handling"

Anonymous, MN (2000 Ford F-150)

"it is an old truck"

Anonymous, OK (2000 Ford F-150)

"Really good for a vehicle almost old enough to vote."

Anonymous, GA (2000 Ford F-150)

"It is a Lariat model top end leather broken in like your Lazy Boy lounger only with many adjustments. One of the most comfortable trucks I have ever been in. It's a 4X4 and rides high,great visibility and ventilation. Automatic airco only recently failed."

E D., MA (2000 Ford F-150)

"Looks good. Still runs great Very reliable"

Michael L., NC (2000 Ford F-150)

"The seats are comfortable, having just completed a long drive from Yellowstone to Denver with no fatigue. The ride on paved roads is very good, but is a little too soft on dirt roads: I'd prefer a stiffer suspension there. A bit of wind noise has developed at the driver's side window, but it is nearly 18 years old."

Ronald S., CO (2000 Ford F-150)

"The ford is a 1995 f150 not a 2000 . this truck is a peach it looks great it drives like a full size car not a truck the shocks that I but on when I bought it made all the difference. I love my truck will not ever sell it"

Michael L., NC (2000 Ford F-150)

Anonymous, ID (2000 Ford F-150)

"All you have to do is keep up on all the things that you should do Oil changes Wax it 3 times a year and fix things before they become a problem. over the 15 years I had the truck I haven't spent more than 3 thousand dollars it has been great to me. You take care of it and it will take care of you."

Anonymous, TN (2000 Ford F-150)

"It's actually a 1998 and it is still running well. Plenty of repairs the past 50,000 miles, but nothing beyond the routine wear and tear repairs of cars of this mileage and age."

Would you buy this car again?

2000 vehicles
Ford F-150
GMC Sierra 1500
Toyota Tundra
Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
