The transmissions are junk in these trucks and Ford Motors will not even acknowledge that there is a problem with their design. A person with a normal job making less than $40,000 a year cannot afford both maintenance and the payment on one of these trucks.
Ford Motors needs to take a second look at the design flaw and fix it accordingly.

ive had this truck for over 4 years and has 38000 miles on it. not a lot of miles i know, but ive never had any issues with it. i love this truck. ive owned a lot of vehicles, mainly trucks, and this is by far, the best. i would never trade or sell.
its 5.4 liter engine and the power that comes with it

Here's my update.
I'm the "Dan" guy who posts about 3rd Ford truck and still impressed.
I finally started to get a misfire.
Dealership said it didn't throw ONE SINGLE CODE (like all other keep posting about) no cam phasers, sensors, lifters etc.
Replaced all 8 plugs, and misfire is resolved as of yesterday.
NOT ONE BROKE!, only 56k, but still 6 years old.
I really think the 2 piece spark plug design is horrible and YES causing a lot of you financial hardship, however....change them at or before 60k.
I really think that any V-8 not changing plugs til 120k, like I keep reading will obviously give someone a lot of trouble removing.
Use Mobil-1 5w-20w, NOT the old fashioned sludge 10w-40
Looks, ride, room, power, reliability. The model suggestions didn't give me the option to select 5.4L XLT 5.5ft bed, but thats what I have in the Supercab.
Poor AC, takes too long to cool. The spark plug issue, and for god sake it's a 330ci engine with only 300HP??? come on now, oh well, I didn't buy it to race Cobra Mustangs, and GTO's.

Going on 6 yrs now with mine, and 34,500 miles.
Never skips a beat , and have done all sched maintenance. No problems with the 5.4L so far, but seems a little sluggish. On my 2nd set of tires; the tires from ford only lasted for 34000 and started to split. Hope to go another 6yrs with this truck then trade it in for a new one. Quiet ride with little road noise .
Would like a little more power out of the 5.4L seems sluggish when getting on freeway ramps.

I purchased this truck with 17k miles. Great ride and performance and was well pleased. I always followed the service and maintenance recommendations, oil changes, rotations, filters etc. all done and on schedule. I travel a lot and am now at 140k miles and it's falling apart. First the 4 wheel drive stop working and now the engine, transmission or fuel system has gone bad, truck flutters really awful when in overdrive, accelerating
or simply trying to climb a hill on the interstate.
Next the truck just stops going when coming to a coast of stop sign some times. It just falls into a idling state. The old saying that FORD is an acronym for "Fix Or Repair Daily" has come true for me.
Ride is superb when the trucks mechanical systems are working properly. Design is great and user friendly.
Gas mileage and mechanical engineering needs to be improved. Owners expense to keep these trucks on the road such as gas, maintenance and constant repair cost as mileage increases needs to be addressed. No more Fords of any kind in my future.
