Default 2018 Owners Only--Any Issues So Far???

I have had my 2018 Since September and have about 1700 miles on her so far.

Was wanting to start a place for any issues showing up on the 2018 models only.

Please list your setup and if you got it resolved or not.

2018 King Ranch 4X4 3.5 eco, built Dearborn first week of September 17

Have only had one issue to date and was very minor. My intermittent wipers did not work at all since day one. Took to the dealer and they replace a switch and all is well again.

Have not had any other issues, truck runs and shifts perfectly. Currently getting about 3 MPG better than my 2015 with the same setup.

Post also if your truck is perfect!

I only have 750 miles on mine and have had zero problems with it. I'd be more interested in hearing about your Hellcat. What does it feel like to have 700 hp at your disposal? How are the rear tires holding out? LOL. Got a pic of it? And what happened to the Tide last weekend? Most of the so-called experts don't think they're going to be in the 4 team playoff. Sorry to detour your truck thread....

Mine is 2018 Lariat 4x4 3.5 Eco Loaded - 2600 miles.
Multiple scratches on the (cheapest ever) plastic interior pieces from factory.
Scratch on center stack controls.
Loose trim piece on rear door (literally fell off while driving).
Air leak in cabin (passenger side) at highway speeds.

I love the way it drives, and mechanically no issues, but the interior and fit/finish is just crap for a 60k+ sticker vehicle.

2018 Lariat 4x4 502a with the 2.7. I've had it for about 2 months and have around 2700 miles with no issues. Love the truck. I've taken several longer trips with it and have been averaging 23.6 mpg's with a high of 24.8 hand calculated. City driving seems to be around 20 mpg's.

Is the plastic different than the 15-17?

Absolutely zero issues with mine. I love it more each day. I got mine at the beginning of October and have about 1800 miles on it. Unlike Tabman10, I'm very happy with the fit and finish of my interior. No rattles or wind noise, and I'm very satisfied with the quality of materials. Mind you, my previous truck was a 2008 Ranger, so it's a pretty big step up for me.

2018 XLT 4x4 3.5 max tow 157" I now have 650 miles in three weeks I changed out the tires to Cooper ATP 10 ply and added floor liners, an impact bed mat and x-15 truexdo cover. So far no issues at all, although I would like to add some better bulbs to my headlights.
