Cost. The ignition system (plugs/coils) are common standardized parts now (GOOD). Look up the F150 spark plug nightmare and you'll understand why Ford is staying away from the ignition system.
Don't believe everything the Level 1 "customer care" phone jockies are telling you. 99% of the public have no idea how things actually work so they tell you just enough of the problem to make you go away while the engineers work on the problem. Apple's whole business model works because of this (you know, because iPhones and iPad's run on unicorns and pixie dust.)
Did the mechanics/engineers who looked at the severely affected trucks even bother to check the plugs?
ASS of U and ME.....
My plugs are on order. Once they're in, should take almost no time at all to verify whether they've had any effect on the symptoms or not.
Since there seem to be quite a number of people having success with regapping their plugs, if you are so mechanically inclined you may want to just go ahead and do this yourself.
$60 and an hour of your time vs a lengthy, drawn-out frivolous lawsuit?
