Default Life expectancy out of 2010 5.4L

Hey guys Im looking at picking up a 2010 4x4 platinum with a 5.4L nice truck.. good deal but it has 200,000 KM's which is around 125000 miles.

Is there anything I should be looking for with these types of miles? I have an 05 that needed cam phasers and had broken plugs. Anything like these on the 2010's?

thanks!

2011 5.4? Sounds like you got bigger problems than a few miles

The 2010 5.4 had worked out the plug issues, not sure about the phasers. I had an 05 5.4 and it was a lemon, many problems.

Haha. Well you might get great service for a long time.....but frankly unless she's one of those gotta have trucks.....if you're going that close hold out for a 2011+

At 200,000km I wouldn't buy that truck. But that's just me... I try to buy my F-150's with less than 65,000km on them. Your buying repair bills with that truck.

ha looks way to ridiculous with that bumper on the front. How much are they asking for it, I assume they are marking it up due to the rims tires and bumper being high $$ items.

Does the owner have maintenance records? Was it run in the oil patch? Or has it spent it's entire life around Vancouver?

When was the tranny serviced?

Knowing what I've gone through with my Fords (and am dealing with now!) I would walk away from that high KM truck and into a much lower KM 2011+ 5.0 or if you're feeling lucky a 3.5L Ecoboost.
