2006 Ford F250 Super Duty LT 5.4 Triton from North America
They just don't build them as tough as they used to
Spark plugs are a costly affair at the mechanics.
Cam phaser went out, along with the VCT solenoid.
Maintenance MUST be done religiously, and before the specified times.
The 5.4 gas engine does not like towing up the Rocky Mountains at all.
If you are on the market for a medium duty truck, you are limited to the big American 3.
All I can say is you HAVE to keep right on top of the scheduled maintenance of this truck, and get it done sooner rather than later, as going over the oil change by even just 1000 kms, will wreak havoc on the various sensors on the engine, and cause it to go into limp mode.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I've had my 2006 Superduty since 12-12-06. I mudded it, pulled a 3 horse horse trailer with living quarters, and used it as a drag car. Sometimes I miss my oil changes by as much as 1000 miles. I just had the tranny serviced at 60000 miles, and other than a turn signal, I've yet to have trouble.
I have a K&N air system. I cut the factory muffler off and put a 12" Cherrybomb glass pack on it, and a throttle body spacer. I ran a Superchip programmer for a while, and it got better mileage and I could smoke both back tires as long as I wanted.
Mine loved pulling my trailer loaded almost to 10000 pounds, but when I ran upwards of 70 mph for long periods, I got 7.5 MPG. That's my only gripe; it could be easier on gas. I don't know what you got, but I'd get another in a heartbeat!!!
