What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Ford F-150

2015 Ford F-150 Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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. full 2013 Ford F-150 review

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. full 2013 Ford F-150 review
