I purchased my truck brand new from a dealer in 2005.
Have changed all fluids religiously, except for recalls and bad quality dash ac vents, have replaced them 4 times, all has gone well.
Recently after tune-up and all service, my engine failed (No. 5 Cylinder) took into dealer and they stated, change the engine it's flawed.
Called Ford, no help.
Had it taken apart to repair at the dealer, they called me to compliment me on how new the internal of the engine was.
How then did it fail.
Dealer says Ford issue.
That is not what Ford tells me.
I would be ashamed if I was Ford.

This is a great truck, absolutely outstanding in performance, it pulls anything that I ask it to, the power and acceleration is excellent and the 4x4 works like its brand new.
I have 94,000 miles and still has all factory components.

Bought my ford f150 in 2007,
it had 32000 miles.
About 3 month later
the 4 wheel drive went out,
ya 5000 miles later.
I called ford to find out what they would do for me.
The customer service was very poor and rude. They wanted to charge me $100 to find out what is wrong with it, on top of what it would cost to fix it. I don't care about paying to have them fix it but to charge me an extra $100 just to find out whats wrong,
come on now.
After I just payed $30,000 for a truck 3 months early.
doesn't pull that.
I like the truck but, the 4 wheel drive has big problems,
and customer service suck!!!
Going back to Toyota.
New packages this year include a Work Truck Group with argent bumpers and a vinyl bench seat, and a King Ranch Group with exclusive interior and exterior trim. A 4.2-liter V6 has been added as the base engine, along with a five-speed manual transmission.
