lasvegascolonel 5pts Though I've had 12 Fords in 45 years of driving, I'd be reluctant go get any Ford pickup with the V6 Ecoboost. The Ecoboost has had some minor issues but turbos will likely need maintenance later on. The Ecoboost gets worse mpg than Chevy's 5.3 V8, according to the EPA. Ford has the poorest powertrain warranty among the 3 major manufacturers---the same as Toyota and Nissan. But as someone else said, if you keep your driving to less than 12K miles a year, the Ford would be fine for five years...then the warranty dies.
