Really Wanted to Love This Truck

2011 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Was happy with it until after the 36000 mile warranty ran out. Synch quit working twice and the service manager said that had been an "Issue." The stereo became "Possessed" and would scan continuously
and would just have to turn it off for a few hours. Then, the transmission would occasionally slip out in the hills and far from dealer or help. Unfortunately, it was an intermittent problem and dealer couldn't find it? Then there was the head light switch that quit working and trip set, etc, etc. Electronics failing right and left at 50K miles. The visibility was very poor. I had to remove all the rear headrests to see well. The bed's sides were weak; a truck's bed should be stronger.
Gas mileage, I could easily get 23 mpg on flat land driving conservatively. Unfortunately, on hills or with a load it dropped to about 16-17 mpg.
Loved the design of the cab, but the seats were uncomfortable after an hour and the fabric was already more worn than my 12 year old Silverado was when I traded it in.
Better quality electronics and more comfortable seats. Also, the rear door on the extended cab should go all the way back like Chevy and GMC.
