    My dad's 2005 Sierra diesel has 131k+ hard use miles. Tow 7500-15000 pounds regularly. Never been at the dealer, no check engine lights ever, original batteries, no exterior lights have even burned out, Allison 1000 is top notch still, passes emissions every time. Top grade SLT model and no electronics have failed. It's been in the coldest conditions (-40F) and hottest (110F) while towing loads. I can say its had no real issues (electrical or mechanical). Let's get your friends 15k mile grocery runners near this type of use (relatively speaking) before saying they have "no issues". Until then, I stand by my original statement, new Fords are shit.

    sounds like my 2001. Ford ball joints suck. One dealer told I was lucky to get to 40k. Here is my list prior to 90k: roof repainted, lower ball joints, dash paint peeling, cup holder, coil, plugs twice, spit a plug, fuel pump, intake gasket, 4 sets of front breaks, 4 sets of tires. Plugs were supposed to be 100k platinum's. No way you could leave them in that long with crappy design.

    ya but your 5lug car is barely a truck. just saying cause you always post up about your fantastic mpg's. apples to grapefruits here.

    my 5.0 reg cab f150 4x4 with a 2inch lift and 33's gets the same mpg on the hwy as my 4cyl tacoma with a 3 inch lift and 32's! would never have gotten the ecobust even if it had been an option in the reg cab, had toyota been more flexible or comparable at all in availability and price a reg cab tundra short bed woulda been nice.
