Another road trip and still very happy with F150 two years later!
It's been almost 2 years now since I traded in my 2007 Toyota Tundra for my 2010 F150. I normally only drive a max. of an hour at a time in it. However, the odd time, I get to go on a road trip.
Last weekend, my wife and I went on a weekend shopping trip in the US. We drove from Guelph, Ontario to Seneca Falls, NY. Distance is about 350 kms or 250 miles each way taking a little over 4 hours to drive.
It was nice to go on a longish trip with the truck and it made me realize just how good it is. It is hands down the most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned. Smooth and quiet would be how I'd describe it. After getting out of the truck at our destination, I didn't feel fatigued or sore which is what used to happen in previous vehicles.
The other thing is the fuel economy is great (I have the 5.4L). I filled up before leaving and reset the mileage computer. It was pretty much all highway driving on the QEW in Ontario and then the I90 in the US. I averaged 11 L/100 kms or 21 MPG for the entire trip! I think that is outstanding for a large pickup with a V8. Turns out the mileage computer in my truck is very accurate as I got the same results after hand calculating.
Getting the F150 was probably one of the best decisions I've made. Looking back, the Tundra I traded in paled in comparison to the F150 both in terms of driving enjoyment and quality. My F150 has only been to the dealer for scheduled maintenance and once for the 3rd brake light replacement. That's it. The Tundra on the other hand was in the shop for problems every couple of months.
Anyway, just wanted to share my thoughts 2 years later and after a great road trip.
