Just like Chrysler is playing dumb with the OAT coolant and radiator hose issue on the 2013 & 2014 trucks.

Old news, that article is over 6 months old. No issues in 2 years and 40k miles on my parent's truck.

And now we have the 1.6 Egoboost recalled for the SEVENTH time.

The ONLY thing Egoboost has been successful at is fooling people into thinking it's something special.

The fact is, the 4 bangers drink fuel like a V6 and the V6 drinks fuel like a V8...all while being far more complicated/problematic/expensive to maintain and repair.

And we all know how Ford is dishonest with their fuel economy claims. Egoboost is a joke.

At least Ford has their quality control right at the factory. Ram seems to have been hiring blind inspectors recently.

My cousin got the ecoboost escape when they first came out and in the first year it spent almost 5 months in the dealership for recalls. Had to get it towed twice because the recalls involved it catching on fire.

Talkin to this dude in the gym that had an Ecoboost F150 and there were so many issues w it that it was at the dealer for seven months out of twelve. All the stuff we read about. Shuddering etc. He finally got Ford to buy it back. They gave him a 2012 (not ecoboost) for the taxes on it.
