"Excellent ride and comfort and not bad gas mileage for big truck. Only issue is air conditioning is very weak and does not cool when idling. Dealer said checks out okay but makes strange noise and forces reving of engine to cool when parked. Ford needs to step up to challenge from Toyota in power area."
"I bought this vehicle one year ago and it has been a relatively good one. I had some early trouble with blue smoke out the exhaust when it was cold but that went away as soon as the outside temperature warmed up-----I am guessing the valve guides leak a little in cold temperatures. The brake rotors warped (all four) by 5000k and the dealer turned them----no problems in the last 15000k. The 4.6L V-8 is a little lacking in UMPH but does ok for around town driving. I get 15mpg in town and about 17 to 19 on the road. Overall I have been happy"
