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!
2010 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 310-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I like having a truck I can count on. I want my dollars per mile driven to to be low I want to be able to haul and pull when needed So far my Ford trucks have not let me down This the definition of reliability 300,000 miles is the definition of durability

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.

ThisJourney already has over 65K miles and I have notexperienced any mechanical or electrical issues. Compared tothe issues my coworkers have experienced with their Chevy Equinox with similar mileage, I can say that the Journey is a very reliable vehicle.

My past experience with Dodge cars and trucks.

With 18000 kms on it the front end is starting to knock when I back out of the driveway, just like the 1999 Caravan with 185000 kms on it, tranny issues noted above, cargo area carpeting damages easily.
