2005 Ford F150 XLT 5.4 from North America
I will not make this mistake again
Coil packs, cam phasers.
This truck has been repaired several times.
The cam phasers are a huge problem and are expensive to replace.
All four window regulators have broken since purchase.
The coil packs are a constant problem.
I purchased this truck with an unknown service history and don’t know if that is why it has been plagued with problems; maybe poor maintenance. In researching this model, it seems many people have the same problems. The transmission shifts are quirky.
Some people swear by Ford products, many times I have sworn at mine. I wish this truck was as reliable as my 1998 Ford Expedition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Sorry, forgot to mention on my previous post. Factory radio quit at 128,000. The heat has not worked well since I have owned the truck. Had to replace the left front caliper as it began sticking. Evap hoses under hood replaced. My dad always said Fix Or Repair Daily. Now I understand.

Odd, I’ve owned multiple Fords without problems. But, I got them new, meaning they had 100k fewer miles than your truck for a lot of the driving. I’m thinking that’s the reason for the mostly minor issues you describe. People buy vehicles with extremely high miles and expect them to perform like new. Why are they 75-80% cheaper than new vehicles? Hmm.

You bought an 11 year old vehicle with over 100K miles on it.
Unrealistic to think it would not need any, possibly major, repairs!
