Customers need to return 3 times for a DPF re-gun flush, only after that is the DPF replaced with a reflash of the engine management commputer. Hilux - faulty drives that the dealers try to fix with machining, on returning customers get a new rear propeller shaft slide joint. Ford Ranger - known faults with intercooler pipes splittinig, rear main oil seals that leak and hard transmission shifting. There have also been catastrophic engine failures! Ford was putting the cause as poor quality fuel initially. There is a recall for Rangers and BT-50s that need a heat shield after fires in long grass. The BT-50s where available for sale from 26 July 2017 - 31 January 2018.
