    Have I made a mistake???😳

    This is the first brand new truck I've ever owned. All I've ever rode were Chevys until now. The only reason I've picked a Ford is because the sales at Chevy sucked. Ford treated me like I would have expected for someone buying a new truck. After reading the reports on this forum I'm sick to my stomach wondering if my truck that I'm growing to love is a lemon. Someone please tell me that not all these these trucks are as bad as I been reading about.

    Nothing wrong with mine! YET. This forum has a lot of info though a lot is bad it is still info from a few not the masses and the nice thing is that you can find fixes on here.

    Funny this comes up often. People read the forum and have a panick attack. Sometimes I read a "I blew my motor" thread and my heart speeds up a little. What you need to understand is that ford sold 750,000 f series trucks last year. How many people are you reading about having issues? And many people only come to these forums to complain not to say "just wanted to say my truck runs good". Kind of like yelp. All vehicles will have problems from time to time but the majority will be solid. My truck is a 2012 with 50,000 miles and runs great!

    I heard a Ford tech post on an FB page that ecoboost failures are around .08%. I would take it with a grain of salt of course.

    Thanks brother! That helps a lot. Bad news always travels faster than good news so I won't worry about it until something happens.

    2013 truck here, 32k miles, no major issues.
    Like others have said, most people don't go on line to say how great everything is and not just with vehicles. Have you read any f150 5.0 forums? If you had a 5.0 and did you'd probably be questioning that motor also.
    Enjoy your bad a$$ truck man!

    Some how when I post a happy face it shows up as something else so anyone I've replied to and there's something weird at the end that's what it is.
