ReviewSuper reliable vehicle! I am on my 2nd set of tires (Goodyear Silent Armors) whcih may have caused my mileage to drop a bit. I use to average 17.2 MPG mixed. Now it has dropped to about 16.8. I love the quiet steel Ford incorporated into the vehicle. Keeps the road noise to a very minimum! I also love the roominess. I wishi t had more interior storage though.
Best FeaturesVery quiet ride! Roominess. Reliability. Looks! Handling. Ruggedness
Worst FeaturesNeed more interior storage.

I will almost bet that you went to a larger tire size. I made the same mistake, It cost me in overall mpg. I will be replacing tires today. I have ordered Michelin LTX M/S2 in the factory equipped size. I expect the mileage to return to normal. Keep up on the maintenance and follow factory recommendations. My 06 has 123,000 miles. The only failure has been a front hub bearing. Other than that the truck is the best Ford that I have owned. My other toy is a Kawasaki ZX-12R that is capable of over 220 MPH. Keeping the shinny side up.Report it
