Some Used Ford F-150 Models Don’t Measure Up To Others

The F-150 is widely considered one of the best pickup trucks ever. It has been around for quite a while and is still a hot seller. 

Because of this, many people seek out used Ford F-150 models when they’re in the market for a truck.

However, some recent models are best left on the dealer lot as they have a few notable issues. In particular, the 2015 Ford F-150 is one of the worst.

The F-150 might be one of the best pickup trucks, but the 2015-2017 models lack this distinction. This is a shame because these were standout years for the Blue Oval when it comes to sales of the iconic truck.

Luckily, it seems the automaker mostly fixed the issues, as the 2018 F-150 is significantly better.

Regarding used 2015 Ford F-150 problems, perhaps the most notable issues come from the transmission. In particular, there were and still are complaints about the truck slipping out of gear.

For the most part, this happens with fast acceleration and towing large amounts. However, there have also been reports of the transmission slipping under normal conditions.

All three used F-150 models have complaints about the brakes. Many owners have needed to replace the master cylinder after the brakes all of a sudden stopped working.

According to Vehicle History, this mostly impacts models with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. Unfortunately, the master cylinder sometimes leaks brake fluid into the brake booster and causes a loss of power.

People who don’t want a used truck as new as this will also have good luck with Ford F-150 models from before 2015. This shows that the F-150 is one of the best pickup trucks .
