"Got the truck used with 93k on it, No rust all comfort zone items in perfect shape. Basically loved the truck when I bought it, got through the snow without fail, hauled from the lumber yard. Even took it out of state on a trip with the family and was comfotable the whole time. Flipped 100K then everything went to pot. 100480 miles took it in for oil change from where I bought it. Two days later at 100510 miles the spring tensioner bearing went bad and cut a 5 inch hole through front of the timing chain cover. The oil filter is located 5 inches to the right of the tensioner. When I asked about them not seeing it being bad I was told "that was a lube tech, not a trained Ford certified mechanic" so $850 I drove off. 2 Days later on lunch break at work truck shuts down and wont start. Tow it back again. Now its the Spark plugs need replaced, $450 unless a plug breaks then its $950. Since when does ONE bad plug make an engine not start at all? Oh hey wait, they just ran the diag on the computer not only does it need plugs but the Cam Phaser has gone bad that'll be another 3400$ Hmm...Checked into this Cam Phaser thing. Wouldn't you know its a known problem that for has with the 5.4 engine and has happened with every 5.4 they have built from 2002-2010. What JUNK, I've always loved the lines of Ford vehicles and have owned many good ones but all pre-2000. I will Never buy a Ford again."

The lowest maintenance vehicle I have ever owned.

"This truck has been a winner for me. It has never had a mechanical problem. I just performed regular care and upkeep as suggested. I am retired on a low SS income and this truck has saved my life."

"Bought this truck in 2009. I have not had a single day when I was disappointed in it's performance. The amount of repairs to this have been almost nil. At 80000 miles, I replaced the plugs as well as the coil boots and the front shocks as a preventative measure. The ride on this truck is as tight today as it was in 2009. It is still running as strong and quiet as well. there are just a few minor glitches like a slight snapping sound in the tailgate hinge and a little bit of rust on the cross rails under the bed of the truck. This is my 4th Ford truck, no need for #5 yet. By the way, the radio in the FX4 model will blow you out of the truck with its' massive woofer under the back seat."

"Still get compliments on its look even though its 7 years old. Had to give a 5/10 reliability rating because had to have transmission replaced at 50K but NO other problems. This truck drives like car and still has a smooth ride. I'm keeping it until it falls apart."

"I have 200000 miles, mostly interstate. I do construction all over. I haul at least 1 gang box in the back with tools over 500 lbs in each box. I never had any problems with engine or transmission or the 4 wheel drive. I will buy FORD truck when I get another. This truck is the BEST on the road."
