2009 F150 facts
Ok guys I've been out of the market for a long time, I need help. I found a 2009 F150 4x4 5.4l automatic 123k miles, it's a single cab with leather seats. It's listed for just under 10k. Should this be a decent deal? How was the 2009 is there anything too look out for? The truck looks to be taken care of and in good shape.

well the spark plug issue was fixed in 2007
make sure the IWC, that vacuum control thing to engage 4wd works ok
price seems low
consult KBB, Edmunds & NSDA for current prices
and as said before, an as is sale may need the advice of a mechanic

The spark plug issue was fixed, but it still can have issues with the VCT/phasers. If you hear the engine ticking or knocking, you could be in for an expensive repair.

forgot about them
I heard that is sometimes caused by using oil heavier than 5w20

I think I'm gonna pass on this one, the mileage is scaring me away.
