Its a personal preference. People who like ford have bought and used them so long that they still continue to put faith in them, despite the new malfunctions. Some believe the issue can be fixed....and alot of them are warrantied anyway. I personalty like Chevy. I know they have issues too but its a personnel preference.

Cars are very hit or miss. People come online to find solutions to problems. So when you log onto a ford forum or review page you might see pages of problems but really it's a very small percentage of cars that are actually on the road. We don't come online to say how great our cars are running today. We come online because it's messed up and we need a solution. It may seem like fords are the only ones having issues until you visit other make/models and see that they all have their own list of problems. There are thousands and thousands of people out there driving trouble free ecoboost cars. The ecoboost is what ford believes will be their future in this new age of fuel-mileage sensitive buyers. They have sunk a ton of money into engineering and marketing it. I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. People who love the car and the fuel rating will keep on buying them regardless of recalls or other minor issues.

There have been very few recalls and issues with the ecoboost engine considering it is a brand new platform and still needs the bugs worked out of it. You can test all you want in the factory but they will never get all the bugs worked out until after they are released to the public. Why is it morons like you like to get on forums and bash ford because your not a fan. I don't know what your flavor is but every company has their list of recalls and issues. If you don't have anything better to do than to get on a ford Q&A and bash ford just to stir people up then maybe you need to find your self a hobby.

Most of the problems are hit and miss, as with most recalls are. This is especially true with the 6.0L PowerStroke and the 6.4L. ford has put most of their chips into the turbocharged EcoBoost engines. I feel likt it was a mistake, considering they have a brand new 3.2L Duratorque I5 turbo diesel that they could've put in the F150s and beat Dodge to the punch with it, considering the last time a 1/2ton truck in America that had a standard diesel was the early 1990s with GMs C/K10 with a 6.2L N/A diese. I don't see what the fuss is about with EcoBoost. to me a turbocharger is just more stuff to go wrong and cause a world of issues, especially if its the main kick for power. When they introduced their new 1.0L I4 EcoBoost engine they were claiming it had more power per liter than a Caterpillar turbo diesel engine found in a lot of their equipment.
