How long before the typical batch of "Furd" recalls ??. Have driven some ecoboost models both rental and when I worked @ dealers VERY impressed by the power of the V6 Turbo. But poor quality and numerous recalls turns me off ford.
With a handle like gmguy and a signature of all GM vehicles, I doubt you'll ever be buying an ecoboost Ford. Recalls don't really bother me. Ignition switches that keep getting installed by a manufacturer (GM) that are killing people do.
From what I have seen and read and watched past years. Ecoboost engines have a high failure rate and $$$$ repair cost=PASS !!

In 2013, Ford has recalled certain Ford Escapes equipped with this engine due to the potential for them to catch fire after overheating.
In 2017, Ford recalled over 360,000 Ford Escape, Ford Fiesta ST, Ford Fusion, Ford Transit Connect, Ford Focus and C-Max hybrid with 1.6 ecoboost engines because of a risk of engine fires caused by a "lack of coolant circulation". There were 29 fires in the U.S. and Canada reported to Ford. The recall partly contributed to a charge of US$300 million by Ford.

Ford Pinto fire deaths
Oh ya few years ago, I drove a '05 Z71 5.3 Silverado with 285K miles on a knocking engine with 10-15 PSI oil pressure for 1 year on mobil 1/Lucas oil stabilizer and she kept on going till the day i sold her. I hardly doubt any F-series could do that, Let alone a "ecoboost-blewmywallet"
