Nice truck but.....

I purchased this truck from Car Max. I did a lot of research before purchasing the vehicle and came to the conclusion that this is the one. Unfortunately the vehicle has made me marginally happy. Was it because of Car Max or Ford build quality, I don't know, but here are a few of the pro's and con's.
Power everything is great. Power rear window and heated seats work like a champ. Premium radio and sun roof was a good choice.
Needs better gas mileage and turning radius. Radio buttons too far to reach for driver. Emergency brake release too far under dash to reach comfortably. 2 weeks later R/F bearing died. Never been the same.
