Hey guys, this question has been asked alot, amd im a young truck enthusiast, at 25 ive only had a couple, but to be honest ive been a chevy guy a while and its time to put my old 1500 5.3 to rest. That said i have a good family friend with a 2011 f150 4x4 ecoboost with only 30,000 miles on it. The guys willing to sell it to me for 12k witch to me is a steal, but ive read so much bad **** goin on with these engines and this beimg one of the first year ecoboost made makes me concerned, have alot of you really had that many issues with these? Even with stellar maintence? I chamge my oil every 3000 miles, i always try to overkill it, cause i cam break anything haha. Im not afraid of the little stuff i can turn a wrench just fine. Its the big stuff that worries me.
