Owner’s Log: 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat (12/2018 – 5/2019)

OwnersLog2

It was a busy winter for the F-150.  A road trip, several service visits, and over 3,800 miles of driving through a mostly wet, sometimes cold winter in the Mid-Atlantic.  There was towing, hauling, commuting, and road-tripping.  You’ll notice that the dates on this post’s title are 5 months instead of 3.  There’s a reason for that – continue reading to find out why.

With not a lot going on truck-wise in 2018, I felt it wasn’t necessary to update you all on how my Ford F-150 was doing.  Then the fall came, and lots of stuff happened between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The saga continues, so I’ll probably be doing quarterly updates in 2019.  Until then, read on for what’s going on with my truck and how it’s been in its third year under my stewardship.

UPDATED: How-To: 2015+ Ford F-150 Freezing Door Latch Fix

Door VentFord’s F-150 continues to sell in record numbers, and its F-Series (including F-150 and Super Duty trucks) perennially beats the competition in that regard.  But with the aluminum body came one big issue: freezing door latches.  Ever since the 2014-2015 winter, the 2015+ F-150 and 2017+ Super Duty has frustrated owners with door latches that either won’t allow the door to open, or even worse, won’t latch closed.  The problem presents itself typically after the vehicle is washed or rain/snow falls on it.  Ford has tried and failed to reliably fix it, and so far this is the best remedy I’ve found.  Read on for how I have [hopefully] fixed this issue with my truck.

New job + shorter commute + toddler = few miles driven.  In 9 months, I barely racked up 6,000 miles on my F-150.  With so few miles driven, I figured I’d just lump all 3 quarters into a big update.  What can I say?  No news is good news, right?  Continue reading to see what me and my F-150 have been up to.

Wow, what a quarter!  I think it’s the most miles I’ve put on a vehicle in 3 months in a LONG time.  The F-150 was driven quite a bit, but no real hauling.  One service visit for an oil change and warped front rotors was the only stop in what was a commute-filled winter.  Read on for more details

Another year, another Number 1 for Ford.  The F-150 continues its role in giving Ford the top sales spot (for F-Series pickups) in America.  Also, this past December marked a full year for my 2015 F-150.  Sure-footed and utility-packed, this truck continues to be up to the task – whichever task that may be.  Read on for my take on a year of ownership of Ford’s “beer can” truck.
