The F-150's handling is sound and the cabin is roomy, but the ride isn't that good and the noisy engine strains under acceleration. Uncomfortable seats further detract from the driving experience. Electronic stability control (ESC), full-time four-wheel drive and curtain airbags are all lacking. (Only the Harley-Davidson version has AWD.)

"Ford only had to replace coils bad at the time of the class action. They should have been required to replace them all. I still have at least on major coil give out every year, and always have a stutter from the coil issue when demanding needs going up a hill. The issue does not trip the on board computer, so hard to track it down. Out of eight, I have had to replace 4 so far."
