While only having only 4000 miles on my FX4, I also have a Ecoboost F150 Platinum with 10,000 miles on it and no problems to report so far. Neither has failed us at any time and the engines have zero oil consumption. Seen long trips with no problems too!

2013 4dr Crew Cab 5.5ft bed turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range
The bi-xenon headlights developed a problem at around 30,000 miles. The high beams either wouldn't work or would stay in the high position. It seems to have worked itself out - but I don't have a lot of confidence in them. It's also worth mentioning that while the xenons are great, the difference between the high and low beams isn't very significant.

I've been hearing an inconsistent low-speed hum (sounds like you're driving through snow). It goes away after 15-20 mph. Seems to happen most often in -20 to +10 temps.
