    Other than a small problem with Sync, my 19 has been trouble free. Hope I didn't jinx it now.

    My 19 has a small hole in the line feeding the camera washer. No sync issues yet or any other issues.

    5.5k miles.

    No! My 2019 has a completely crooked bumper and cockeyed exhaust pipe. This looks to be a common problem as I have found a few more like mine on dealers lots. Ford just now gave my local dealer the go ahead to start the adjustments/repair.

    Anyone else running outside to check theirs? It’s very subtle but you notice you can’t unsee it.

    I had numerous issues with my 2017 Raptor (vibration in gas pedal, transmission shifting weird, etc...). It just never felt right. My 2019 has 4K miles on it and everything is working much better. Both trucks seem a little off before they are warmed up, but the 2019 is running very well when warm. I am so glad that I got rid of the 2017!!!!! My 2017 spent just as much time at the dealership as it did in my driveway for the first several months that I owned it and saw the dealership numerous times after that.

    This is my 5th Ford since 2013.

    13 SHO
    14 Ex-Sport
    15 Mustang GT
    18 Ex-Sport
    18 Raptor

    I have had no problems with Ford Quality in any of those 5 vehicles. The only car of the 5 that ever went to the shop for warranty service was the 14 Ex-Sport for a power steering pump failure.

    Since 2000, I have had 5 Ford's, 2 Audi's, 2 Vw's, 1 Mazda, 1 Chevy, and 1 Volvo.

    The Volvo was an extreme nightmare. 2006 S60r, in the shop for 17 things over the course of 100,000 miles. Thank God for CPO.

    Everything else has been what I call normal. The Fords are what they are. Don't have the "fit and finish" of the Audi or VW, but I can't complain. Mechanically, they are very good.

    i was just about to tell you to get over it and say you were being a little picky, until i saw it. Yes. That is crooked alright. The entire bumper is shifted and the exhaust is 1 inch lower on the left.

    Should have been caught at the factory. But the dealer should be able to adjust that out.

    Just checked mine. i dont have that.

    Yes! Had a 15’ F-150 plate and build quality is not nearly as nice.

    This is a little misleading, as Sync issues alone killed their reliability ratings for several years.
