The Driver's Air Bag Could Deploy Without Warning

The clock spring jumper wire behind the driver's air bag may come into contact with the lower horn plate, resulting in damage to the wiring. If this occurs, the air bag warning light may illuminate or the driver's air bag could deploy unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury or a loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the jumper wire with a new design, which includes a protective mesh cover. This recall is expected to begin on February 28, 2011.

Ford Recalls 2005–2006 F150 and Lincoln Mark LT Trucks for a Brake Booster Vaccum Hose Issue

Ford has recalled certain 2005–2006 F-150 and Lincoln Mark LT trucks for a concern with the brake booster vacuum supply hose. On some vehicles, the hose may swell where it attaches to the intake manifold, causing it to lose retention force. This may cause the hose to become detached from the fitting, which can result in reduced vehicle braking power. Dealers will replace the rubber hose on the brake booster vacuum supply assembly.

2006 Ford F-150 Reviews

I have 100,000 miles now and have not done one thing to it. The ford is much more solid, less rust prone, and more reliable. The cloth interior is crappy however, i have tears all over the driver seat. I have the 5.4 liter which is a very reliable boat anchor that gets 14 miles to the gallon. I have owned lots of different brand trucks in my business and must say that all my fords, except my 6....
I bought my F-150 4x4 V8 step side about six months ago with 38,000 miles got great deal on it. run great, lots of power. So far it been a great truck.
After coming out of an Infiniti for the Ford F-150 I am miserable I never realized just how bad these trucks were. Serious electrical problems, squeaks really bad, cloth on seats stains really bad, always had issues under the hood.
