Ball joints replaced at 100,000km - 60,000 miles (normal wear).
One battery every other winter - it must have a battery drain, but everything is factory. I just exchange the battery every other year when it dies, at Costco.
The brakes felt really soft, so I upgraded to slotted rotors; big improvement.
The black paint came off the F-150 badge on the fender, but I like the look.
The truck felt sluggish when I bought it. Added an Edge programmer, and what a difference. I leave it in trans mode.
The buttons on the stereo have worn off. It looks bad but doesn't affect the stereos performance. I have had it overheat before and stop playing.
I want to say first that I am totally unbiased, and have no reason to exaggerate. We have multiple cars in our household, and they all have their pros/cons.
This is a beautiful truck. I love the interior.
It rides nice and has lots of power.
The automatic climate control works better than in our Lexus.
The 6 disc changer stereo is excellent.
The heated seats get nice and hot.
It tows our 27ft camper trailer like a champ, with the Edge in tow mode.
The rear seats fold up instead of down. It's a great design, and makes for lots of cargo room inside.
It idles rough sometimes.
The power steering whines, especially if cold outside.
It seems to go through tires quickly, but that may be my spirited driving.
The gas tank door doesn't lock.
It's hard on fuel (it is a truck). 12-13 mpg city and 16-17 on the highway. Again; may be my spirited driving.
If you drive 90kph - 55mph, you can get 18-20mpg.
