  1. Buying Advice (2024 3.5L Ecoboost)

    I've recently posted about how my 2023 XLT was built by the same people that built the Boeing 737 Max 8. https://www.f150gen14.com/forum/threads/when-is-enough-enough-buyback.24945/ My dealer's service department was top-notch and got my transmission going again... only for my humidity sensor...
  2. When is enough enough? (Buyback)

    I have a 2023 F150 XLT 302A with 27600 km on the odometer. It's the first new vehicle I bought and the 2.7L has been better than I could have imagined. I drive it everywhere and I was hopeful I could keep it for a decade or more. Unfortunately, this thing was put together by the same people...
  3. Broke Folding Storage Latch

    So this is a bit of an unexpected problem. Went to fold my folding storage and one of the latches broke. Just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them before. I'll be going to the dealership tomorrow to see if it's warranty covered and if I can get an extra latch. It seems like it's all...
  4. Upgrading 8" Instrument Panel Cluster to 12" Digital Panel Cluster

    Hey, just had a couple of questions for those who have done this swap. Please move if this belongs in a different sub-forum. I'm looking at upgrading my 8" IPC to the 12" IPC in the Lariat. 1. For programming the new IPC, do I just load my Forscan as built from my existing cluster, along with...
  5. A Bit of Perspective

    It seems like this forum has tended more negatively in recent months, which is to be expected. Less people will come to a forum to post about their perfectly functional trucks than their problematic truck. Let me post a different perspective. I'm working in a remote reserve in Northern Ontario...
  6. IGLA - Anti Theft Immobilizer

    Where I'm at (Ontario, Canada), auto theft is out of control. It's now a high-reward/low-risk endeavour for organized crime, to the point where people are installing bollards in their driveways and chaining their wheels together at night in order to deter thieves. I've taken several steps to...
  7. 540,000 miles on a second gen 2.7

    Found this screenshot reposted on Reddit. If true that's impressive. https://www.reddit.com/r/f150/s/XDFKII7cvC
  8. Fordpass Server Issues (January 17th, 2024)

    Anyone having issues with Fordpass today? Seems like the app is having server issues or something over on the Mach-E forums. Everytime I try to refresh the app it goes blank and just keeps spinning the blue wheel.
  9. Warning for those using the BM-2 Bluetooth Battery Monitor

    I've been looking at installing a Bluetooth battery monitor on my F150 and it seems everybody has a BM-2 or similar monitor installed with associated app on their phone. Stumbled across this link which puts forth the case that the associated app is tracking user location data and sending it...
  10. Low 12V battery voltage causing issues? (Update: Yes)

    I've been having the weirdest issues with my truck as we've gotten into winter. All of these issues started in November. I've had my truck since January 2023. - The folding gearshift won't return to its normal position unless the truck is powered on and running. It used to return up anytime the...
  11. Heavy Engine Mechanic reviews the 2.7L Ecoboost engine

    Thought this was a good video that broke down a lot of what makes the 2.7L a unique engine (Fractured caps, compact graphite iron, square cylinders, offset rods, etc.)
  12. Console Shifter stuck in D [SOLVED]

    Just wondering if anyone has had this issue. I have the console shifter on my 2023. When I drive for a bit then go to shift out of D (e.g. to R to back into a spot or P to park) the shifter release won't unlock the shifter despite being pressed. I end up pushing the console shifter forward to...
  13. 2.7L EcoBoost NAPA Gold (WIX) 100050 Filter for 2.7L Ecoboost

    My F150 is the first vehicle I've ever owned where I'm doing my own maintenance. I've been using Kirkland 5W-30 with the Motorcraft FL-2062-A filter, but my local dealerships have raised the price of the filter to $24.95 CAD before tax. An oil change on this truck is costing me, after taxes...
  14. Aftermarket Glovebox Light (Glow Box Lite)

    I was disappointed that the 2023 F150 got rid of the glove box light. My 2017 Escape had one (and a dampened glove box, but I could go on) and it wasn't until I got the F150 that I realized how much I really did appreciate the light. The cheapest and fastest solution I found was from Etsy. It's...
  15. Confirming Door Panel Fitment for XLT Sport Package F150

    Morning, The wife a few weeks ago was returning a couple of broken pavers to Home Depot. She didn't want to break them in the bed on the way home, so she put them in the back seat. One swerve to avoid someone running a red light and the right rear door panel trim has a bit of damage that the...
  16. GWM Update Issue at Dealership

    Not much to go on unfortunately. My truck was in for service due to the Fordpass issues that Ford has had on 2023 models. The GWM was replaced and everything checked out. They applied a new update that Ford sent them yesterday and it broke everything. Every F150 they've updated since has...
  17. One month with the 2023 F-150, here are my thoughts...

    I'm at the dealership getting some stuff corrected on the F150, so seeing as we're almost a month from when I picked it up, I thought I'd put thought to keyboard and list out some thoughts on the F150 (Yes, I'm bored). Overall, I have no regrets (apart from the fact I want but can't justify...
  18. GM's Android Automotive: A bad omen for Ford?

    So one of the things that held me up from buying a '23 initially was that Sync 4 was on its way out with a new Android Automotive based SYNC system for the Gen 14 refresh. But based on this review, I'm a) Happy I got a 23 and b) Concerned that Ford's implementation of Android Automotive is going...
  19. The most generic 14th generation F-150... plus anniversary decals!

    I recall reading a survey of members around here, which indicated a black XLT302A sport package was the most common order. So here's my black 2023 XLT302A sport package, plus unexpected 75th anniversary decals and splash screens.
  20. Winter Tires - Grabber/Maxx SJ8/X-Ice/Blizzak/Winterforce

    Have my truck coming in early January and that's the start of the worst part of winter around here. Lots of snow, ice, slush, and vehicles in the ditch. I like the HDPP wheels that come with the winter packages from Ford, so I got the following quotes (in Canadian dollars) on 275/65R18 winter...
