    02 - 4x2 - purchased used w/ about 9k miles



    Warranty fixes

    Vacuum hose - caused CEL, but never noticed performance issues

    peeling door handles

    condensation in the left headlight

    'out of round' right rear axel (extended warranty fixed that one)





    On our own

    shocks, brakes, sway bar, spark plugs, wires, serpentine belt, fuel filter, K&N filter, replaced the cupped ProComp tires that came on it with some Big O's, replaced the Big O's with some fabulous Bridgestone Dueler Revo's



    There might have been some other things that I have forgotten. Most of the $$ that we've put into the truck have been cosmetic. I have been amazed at the 'trouble free' miles that my boy has given us. He's got just over 60k on him at this point and is still running strong...knock on wood. :rolleyes:

    '02, stalling on upshift on cold weather mornings after sitting all night outside.

    Solved by Ford, flashed the computer with updated program.

    2002, 4x4 50,000



    Rear door handles

    Condensation in one light

    Full Front brakes - pads and rotors shot (rusted) at 25K (Ford covered the entire job)

    Tail gate lock (would not open)

    Some other minor items all covered before 36K warranty expired, senors, etc.



    I did recently spot the clearcoat cracking on the hood :eek: What can you do ! Other then that I have no complaints about the ST and the service from Ford for that matter. It is been a pretty solid truck, and I would consider getting another one at some point.

    01 4wd,



    Misaligned doors

    Fuel pump replaced due to cut out at highway speeds

    EGR sensor went after warranty.



    03 4wd, POS (I am just posting what I remember) all replaced under warranty



    Airbag wiring repaired

    peeling steering wheel

    holes in leather drivers seat

    peeling radio bezel

    throttle cable kept coming loose from its clip in the engine bay

    transfer case replaced because it was self destructing

    driveshaft replaced due to vibe

    rear axle seals replaced due to high pitched whine

    Upper radiator hose was almost worn through because of tranny dipstick

    Thunk and rattle in dash

    Bad spark plug within first month of owning it



    I can't remember other stuff, there were about 23 parts I had replaced on this thing before I got rid of it. I had to replace the DPFE sensor just out of warranty and I got rid of the damn thing. Even the service advisors at Ford were calling it a lemon.

    With all due respect, if you are worried about loosing money on a trade in, ever considered selling your vehicles and walking? Honestly.



    A car is not an investment. It is a mode of transportation that is designed to get you from point A to B.



    If you are really that worried about loosing money, you would be better off walking everywhere.

    Im not worried about loseing money.... not in the slightest.



    I WAS worried about trading it in, and paying more money for a vehicle that has the potential to have the same problem that my currect ST has.



    My ST is solid, other than the tranny, and from what im reading I may have found a solution... his name WAYNE FOY ;)



    Anyways, ive decided to keep my ST, im not trading it.
