Just bought my first Ford F-150. Its a 2011 ecoboost with 27,000 miles. Can you guys give me some heads up on what to watch for. Ill be towing a 1999 Tige' 2100v with it weight of boat is about 4000 and trailer is about 1200. Pros and Cons to Please....
Pros- going to be addicted to the massive TQ
con- you will forget you have a 5200lbs boat behind you as the EcoBeast surges up the hill past the speed limit lol
pro- you get to pull a bigger boat than your friend
con- you will have wait at the boat launch for your buddy as he is still working his way up the last hill
no really issues with the truck bro! Congrats and welcome... Some folks have had the rare issues with condensation build up in the intake causing shuttering at certain speeds this is due to high humidity and a over effective intercooler. Again rare situation and if you haven't felt it (pretty pronounced shutter) doubt you have the issue. Not to worry as ford has addressed it and is ensuring trucks that are affected are fixed. It's a solid truck with a overbuilt motor that gets betters as it ages.
