2011 Ford Econoline E250 5.4L Triton from North America


Bought it on reputation --- So far so good


Transmission front bearing assembly failure at 102,000 km.

- Covered under a 'one time' warranty recall.

- I'm happy that I did not have to shell out thousands of dollars for a new transmission.

Rear seal leak at 2000 km.

Pitman arm leak at 16000 km.

General Comments:

December 27/14 - I have 117,000 km on this van now. I had a few issues that warranty covered. No issues whatsoever with the engine so far.

- I like the chrome/plastic grill and placement of the controls on the dash.

- A/C and heat work great with the exception of the floor heat. Heat vents are directed towards my ankles instead of my feet.

- 15 MPG (American) with mixed driving. I like the big gas tank --- I can get 700-800 km out of a tank in the summer.

- Silver paint job looks great.

- Minimal road noise/engine noise compared to previous vans I have owned.

- SYNC system is great, and works like a charm.

- Interior seats are cheap quality, not a lot of cushioning.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
