I still love it even though it's 6 years old, and even though I now make more of a Lexus salary than Ford. Very reliable. In those 6 years it's been into the shop exactly once for new brake pads. Great for hauling and towing. I easily haul a 4,500 lb. boat, plus wife and two kids and associated stuff. Great fuel economy. Much better than the newer design.
A zillion smart little consumer friendly features ranging from cup holders to the design of the roof rack. Most outstanding though, are reliability and fuel economy.
