Default not impressed

anyone here not impressed with the 5.4 f150? im sorry but i have a 2006 f150 fx4, and honestly it seems like i have had nothing but problems with this truck. it has only 58k miles. I have already replaced the whole throttle body assembly, drivers side window switch twice, changed the plugs, 3 broke off, the steering use to be smooth, not its got a roughness to it, now i have a deep engine tick coming from the back of the engine or underneath, so it seems. Man i just feel like thats alot of stuff to go wrong in 58k of owning a truck

Don't get me started , purchased new ,114k, window switch once, mileage green backlit light out , shifter indicator lights out on center console , cam sensor replaced, cam sensors now unplugged, new plugs at $600, both fog lights out, 3rd brake light out, new battery, and as of this weekend it won't start with the new battery I put in it on Sunday. I know some of this is petty crap except for the cam issues sorry just had to vent

Love mine. No real issues with it. Leaking brake light. Any issues have been mod related. The throttle body sensor went out but seeing as how I've had the tb on and off a 100 times thats to be expected. Drive it like I stole it, race it, tow with it. It does it all.

It's not 1970, 114k miles isn't much.

111k on mine, original everything except fuel filter, plugs, regular maintenance things. 4.2 ftw! Haha

232k on my '97 5 speed Contour, only replaced clutch, regular maintenance.

seems to me, the chevy and dodge trucks don't have nearly as many problems as the f150 with the 5.4 engine. all i read about is cam phasers going bad, and timing chains issues having to replace all that stuff to resolve a damn tick, it just seems like alot of stuff to go wrong for spending this much money on a truck.

There's also more of them out there so you end up hearing more complaints. Most people hit forums with issues and bitxhes. Cam sensors were not properly designed. Same with plugs. I replaced the VCT on my 04 and engine was clean and chains were nice and tight. So no cam sensors replaced for me. Mine only has 81k but has run great so far. I'd buy another.

I'm not a Chevy or dodge fan but all in all up to 150k miles they seem, IMO anyway to be pretty close in the complaint arena.
