    Wow. Mine hasn't had anything that serious. Heated seat currently not working. I've had mine go in limp mode on the highway, app tells me it's a misfire code, bring it to the dealer and they won't do anything unless I get there while the light is still on. Not sure what it was but something in the front end sounded like nuts and bolts being shaken around in a coffee can. And the ****ing sun-roof rattles so ****ing bad it's making me want to get rid of the truck. It drives me insane a $70k truck will do that. I've already had it in once for the dealer to try and fix it, no such luck. I just crossed over 15k miles.

    Oh, and it makes this awful grinding noise on a cold start. I've also had it not start at all. Haven't even had time to take it to the dealer to see if that's normal? I don't see how it could be.

    Glad to see you actually used the Raptor for what it was designed for (kind of).

    Sadly, the only dirt the majority of these trucks see comes from the bottoms of the shoes from the passengers on the interior carpet.

    Sad, but true. Mine has seen its share of trail time at least.

    Geeeez that doesnt give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. I thought about purchasing one recently. Sounds like a gremlin crawling around in there.

    This is interesting. I think ford has a couple of common issues across a couple of vehicle lines. I have a 2017 Explorer for my DD and I have had the APIM fail (I just fixed it myself as it is out of warranty and still cost $450 for a used APIM!). I also had an issue with the cam phasers and timing chains which luckily got fixed just as powertrain warranty was expiring. The timing chain/phaser issue seems pretty common on the 3.5 EB and seems to have been going on a while. In fact, both of my major issues have been common across lines. Not sure why they haven't engineered them out yet.

    Beutiful truck OP. My Exploder is same color.
