The Ford F is one of the most iconic and popular trucks in America, but it&#;s not a perfect truck by any means. Like anything else in life, the F has its flaws, and the model year of the F isn&#;t an exception. Here are some of the most common complaints about the F according to Car Complaints.

Exterior problems with the F

The second most common complaint that drivers had about the F was about its door latches. Many drivers complained about the doors not latching. Others were more specific and mentioned that the doors wouldn&#;t latch in cold weather. Although this was a severe and common complaint, it was not a dangerous one. 

Another common and serious issue that drivers reported about the F was about its tailgate. For some reason, the tailgates of these relatively new and unused Fs kept opening by themselves.

Some drivers speculate on Car Complaints that it has to do with the fact that the tailgate is electric, but its cause is currently unknown. This issue will usually be annoying, but if you have some unsecured payload in your truck bed, then this can be very dangerous.  

A less common but still serious issue that drivers had about the F was in relation to its windows and mirrors. Many drivers reported visibility issues stemming from problems with the mirrors warping or even shattering. These issues may not seem serious, but in certain circumstances, not having enough visibility can lead to serious accidents.

Interior problems

Drivers of the F also had trouble with the truck&#;s interior systems. The transmission, in particular, was a common problem spot for drivers. Many owners reported having trouble shifting gears or the engine simply stalling.

Some drivers reported the engine stopping entirely out of nowhere. These problems also lead to some documented crashes and car fires, according to Car Complaints. 

The electrical system of the F was also problematic. Other than occasionally opening the tailgate at random, the F&#;s electrical system sometimes just refused to lock doors, according to Car Complaints. Other times, systems such as the defroster wouldn&#;t work due to an issue in the truck&#;s electrical system.  

Furthermore, due to faulty interior systems, hundreds of thousands of Fs were recalled. These recalls had to do with things ranging from the car seats to the F&#;s wiring.

The result of these flaws could lead to crashes or car fires. The F&#;s seats, in particular, were very problematic as they could catch on fire easily and that could total the truck even in a minor accident, according to Car Complaints.

But, it&#;s not all bad

Despite these common issues, they&#;re actually not too common. On top of that, Ford&#;s been making big strides in improving the reliability of the F In fact, Car Complaints says that the 7th most problematic vehicle ever is the F The F has far fewer problems than the model year of the F, and it&#;s also a very safe and durable truck. 

Furthermore, with the introduction of an extremely fuel-efficient diesel engine, the F has become the best selling car in America overall. Its high fuel efficiency, combined with its ruggedness and practicality, has allowed the F to stay ahead of its competition. Although these issues are common, the pros of the F far outweigh the cons in the eyes of consumers.

But, these facts don&#;t mean that Ford is ignoring the issues F owners are reporting. Ford knows what it needs to do to improve its trucks and fixing these common complaints is something that Ford is working on.

Super Truck: How Our Ford F Lariat FX4 Held Up After a Year

Fourteen months with our Truck of the Year

Ford F Full Overview

Big trucks like our Ford F can at times seem out of place in the busy and tight streets of Los Angeles, but that didn't stop staffers from racking up miles on our dark green truck. After 14 months in #MTGarage, our Truck of the Year winner departed with 26, miles on its odometer and hauled or towed many things - two motorcycles, four sofas, two sets of washers and dryers, enclosed car trailers, and a camper, just to name a few. If this truck had any weaknesses, we were going to expose them.

We tried to do just that only few weeks after its arrival when a few friends and I acquired a foot Airstream Flying Cloud for a weekend of glamping. The fancy camper weighed in at 6, pounds, which was definitely hefty, but still comfortably within our truck's max tow rating of 7, pounds. With a three-hour journey to the campsite just north of Santa Barbara, the drive could've been taxing and stressful. Thankfully it wasn't. The truck handled confidently and steady at highway speed and the liter twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost showed no signs of struggling, including up and over the challenging Conejo Grade just south of Camarillo, California.

The powertrain is equally impressive when the 5,pound truck is unladen. We recorded a mph time of seconds, making it the third quickest vehicle in our long-term fleet behind the Volvo S60 T6 and Genesis G70 T. The strong engine is mated to a speed automatic transmission and for the most part both worked well together. However, the transmission developed an issue where it would stumble through shifts, mostly between gears 3 and 5. Apparently we weren't alone, because our local dealer knew exactly what we were talking about and immediately reprogrammed our truck powertrain control module and transmission control module. That smoothed things back to normal, though a few rough downshifts popped up a couple times (but not as harsh as before the reflash). Looks like Ford still has some software tweaking to do.

Our F is EPA rated at 19/24 mpg city/highway, and according to our logbook it averaged mpg during its stay. Acceptable considering the amount of towing and LA traffic we put it through. The log also reveals a couple road trips where the truck hit 24 mpg on a tank of fuel.

We opted for the Lariat trim level and though some staffers winced at our truck's $57, price tag, most everyone agreed our F's cabin was a nice place to spend time in. The Lariat package costs a $5, after a discount active at the time of our build and adds a long list of features - some items I most appreciated include the instrument panel's large and sharp digital display, the B&O Play sound system, remote start system, and the ventilated front seats. The latter two helped with the warmer weather. That said, our truck had a few standalone options I could've done without. The foldable bed extender, for example, was rarely used and also got in the way of latching the tonneau cover - it was most useful when folded forward to act as a bed divider. But again, it was mostly in the way. I'd also skip the tow mirrors - helpful for towing, but not worth the hassle of avoiding the garage posts at the office. Unfortunately one staffer misjudged one of those posts and cracked the passenger side housing. The large mirrors also look somewhat goofy with our trucks shorter Supercab bodystyle.

Speaking of which, I was initially worried about the Supercab's practicality due to its smaller rear passenger area, but it didn't take long to see that the pros outweighed the cons. The rear-hinged back doors were tricky in tight parking spaces, but overall I was fan. Their ability to swing open degrees and the absence of a B-pillar made access to the rear seats super easy. Legroom was adequate for three averaged-sized adults.

We had nothing but praise for the longer and spacious foot bed, along with its eight hooks (including four with the optional BoxLink system), LED lighting, and durable spray-in bedliner. Our truck also had the optional retractable side steps near the front of bed, which got a lot of use. Again, the only thing I wasn't a fan of was the bed extender.

Our truck went in for two service visits (oil changes, tire rotations, and one in-cabin air filter) for a total cost of $ That's a tad more than our long-term Ram (with the hp V-8), which set us back $ for two service visits - that truck also returned similar fuel economy at mpg. Meanwhile, our Ram with the EcoDiesel V-6 covered more than 32, miles (and averaged mpg), so its pricey 30,mile service stop, which included rear differential service, meant we spent more maintaining it at $, and it required eight gallons of diesel exhaust fluid and three dealer visits.

With its comfy interior, strong engine, and spacious bed, it's no surprise that our F was in high demand during its stay. The fact that it was mostly drama free during its stay only solidifies our case for crowning it our Truck of the Year.

The Ford F inherits three new or updated engines, a more handsome face, and more available active-safety technologies for The aluminum-bodied, steel-frame F was our choice as the top pickup among our 10Best Trucks and SUVs, and the model improves on that strong base.

Just aft of the truck’s more horizontal headlight and grille design live the most significant changes. Starting at the bottom of the lineup, Ford has downsized the F’s base, naturally aspirated V-6 from to liters by reducing the bore (the stroke stays the same). The engine now features port and direct fuel injection, a much higher compression ratio of (up from ), and reduced internal friction. Peak horsepower jumps by eight to , albeit rpm later at rpm, just shy of redline, and torque increases 12 lb-ft to and peaks rpm sooner than last year at a still high rpm. The liter is standard on the XL and XLT but is unavailable otherwise.

Next in line is the EcoBoost twin-turbocharged liter V-6, a $ option on XL and XLT and standard on the Lariat trim level. It qualifies as “second generation” by Ford’s measure, keeping its fancy compacted-graphite iron and aluminum block and boasting the same dual-injection capability as the liter, as well as a new exhaust-gas-recirculation (EGR) system and reduced internal friction. Peak horsepower holds at and is available rpm lower in the rev range at rpm, while torque jumps 25 lb-ft to an even and peaks rpm sooner at rpm.

Ford left alone the other available EcoBoost, the twin-turbocharged liter V-6, as well as its higher-output sibling that powers the equally unchanged F Raptor, as that engine was new last year. The hp engine is the burliest in the conventional F range—and a steal at between $ and $ when added to the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum models. It is standard on the range-topping F Limited. Compared with the updated liter V-8 ($ extra on XL and XLT, $ on the Lariat, and standard on the King Ranch and Platinum), the liter dominates with a whopping lb-ft of torque. The liter inherits the same port and direct fuel-injection capability as the rest of the F’s engine range to produce 10 more horsepower and 13 more lb-ft than before, for totals of horsepower and lb-ft.

Ford’s speed automatic transmission is no longer exclusive to trucks with the liter EcoBoost. That gearbox replaces the six-speed automatic that was previously paired with the liter and the liter. Ford kept the tried-and-true six-speed automatic for the liter V-6, citing cost and drivability goals. With help from the engine updates, the new speed, and the stop/start feature that’s now standard on all Fs, EPA-estimated fuel-economy numbers edge up by 1 or 2 mpg for every powertrain except the carryover liter EcoBoost. Expect bigger fuel-economy gains from the upcoming diesel V-6 option, a late arrival due in spring that we haven’t yet had a chance to drive.

Behind the Wheel

Incremental though they are, Ford’s powertrain updates are welcome. The liter EcoBoost V-6 is now even more appealing, thanks to its punchier torque and the wider ratio spread of the speed versus the old six-speed. The small six-cylinder sounds great under load, too, and emits a satisfying turbo whistle when the driver really sticks the spurs to it. Traditionalists, for whom Ford continues to offer the liter V-8, likely will be more pleased by the continued availability of the big, naturally aspirated engine than concerned about the marginal improvements to its performance. It feels much the same as before, meaning its low-end torque isn’t as satisfying or as early to arrive as the EcoBoost engines’, which match or outgun it in this regard. Still, there’s no beating the five-oh’s muscle-car soundtrack and linear, old-school power delivery that builds thrust to a crescendo near redline.

As we noted in our test of the F with the liter EcoBoost and this same speed, with so many gears to choose from and the ability to lock, unlock, and even partially lock its torque converter to maximize efficiency or to smooth over a shift, the transmission can stay busy no matter which engine it’s bolted to. For the most part, one must consult the comically long string of digits from one to 10 displayed in the gauge cluster to track the transmission’s behavior. In normal driving, the transmission skips gears when accelerating and decelerating to avoid shift pileups, and it runs sequentially through every single gear only under full throttle or when driven gently, as during, say, the EPA’s fuel-economy testing procedures.

Busy also describes the six-speed automatic attached to the new liter V-6, although for different reasons. Lacking the broad and flat torque curve of its turbocharged siblings, the V-6 forces the six-speed to shift often to keep up momentum. We drove two Fs with that engine: a stripped-out two-wheel-drive, extended-cab F XL and a four-wheel-drive, crew-cab XLT. Both felt slow, a condition exacerbated when we loaded the crew cab’s bed with a pound bundle of horse feed.

We suspect that Ford’s decision to go with the six-speed in the base trim is its way of keeping the opening price as low as possible. As it is, the six-speed makes the most of the V-6’s output, the larger gaps between its ratios enabling the engine to wind out a little more. Its Sport mode (in addition to a traditional tow/haul mode) is even snappier, usefully hanging on to lower gears, reducing the need to dip further into the throttle when encountering hilly terrain. Leadfooting the liter has two unfortunate consequences. First, at higher rpm there’s a shrillness to the V-6’s sound; it is also where the fuel injection switches from port to direct. Second, all that revving probably doesn’t help fuel economy, rendering its better EPA ratings more of a theoretical than a real-world advantage.

To be fair to the updated base engine, the old liter was just as poky. Fortunately, Ford makes it easy and affordable to upgrade to the far better and more powerful EcoBoost engines or the V-8, and we recommend every F buyer do so. We’ll confirm Ford’s claims of higher efficiency (and see how much quicker the updated engines are) when we run the F’s variants through our regimen of instrumented tests.

Minor Updates Elsewhere

As for the rest of the truck, Ford has left well enough alone. The existing F’s interior carries over to , sans any changes beyond a few new color schemes and a classy Kingsville upgrade for the King Ranch model. Now there’s an onboard 4G LTE data connection with a Wi-Fi hotspot for the optional Sync 3 infotainment system. Even top-dog Fs with and inch wheels ride well, and while the Ford isn’t as buttoned down during hard driving as General Motors’ well-sorted Silverado and Sierra trucks, its excellent driving position and forward sightlines make it easier to maneuver.

For the first time, the F offers adaptive cruise control that can bring the truck to a complete stop in traffic and accelerate again (provided each stop lasts fewer than three seconds). Forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automated emergency braking also join the roster. No upgraded full-size pickup worth its salt hits the scene without enhanced capability, an embarrassment the F avoids with a beefier rear axle on the most towing-focused variants that raises its maximum gross combined weight rating (GCWR) to 18, pounds. Maximum towing capacity grows to 13, pounds (up by pounds), while the highest payload an F can carry remains pounds.

We’ll soon see whether the F can repeat as a 10Best Trucks and SUVs winner, too, when it gathers for our competition this fall, but everything we see here indicates it’s still a satisfying truck.
