Exceptionally High Number of Failures
By Ryan on
2000 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
If I had not purchased the Ford version ESP Extended Service Protection to 75,000 miles, I would have paid over $8,000 in repairs. Failures within this mileage: air conditioning, steering pump, ALL tie rods (inner and outer), ABS antilock brake module, mass air sensor, both power door lock modules, ALL upper and lower ball joints, heavy RUST on both front doors inside at the bottom, RUSTED spark plugs and coil #6 at 74,000 miles when Ford says replacement at 100,000 miles.
I like the height and the looks.
Ford used extremely poor quality cheap parts in their production, especially bad tie rods.
