I bought a 2011 F150 Supercrew 4x4 Platinum Ecoboost new in 2011. I wanted the best (or so I thought). Just out of warranty the vacuum pump started squealing, here's a pic of it after 40,000 miles:
I fixed the vacuum pump myself!
About the same time I realized I had to add antifreeze to the truck. It's leaking and it's all part of the airbox.
Also the power running boards failed and Ford ABSOLUTELY tries to RAPE customers on replacements of these!!!!!
ALL of these problems aren't unique to me! I have researched the internet and found that ALL of these issues are common. I still only have 47,000 miles on this truck and I have to work on it like a 15 year old chevy. Frustrating that I spent that much money for this poor quality truck.
FORD doesn't admit to their problems, doesn't stand by their product and then charges 4x what they should for parts. What a shame!
