I was reading a post on blueovalforums.com about an upset 1.6L Ecoboost owner who regrets buying his EB. Anyone else have these feelings?

If my 2.0 had had as many problems as the 1.6 has had, I likely would be too.

I was thinking that the only difference between the 1.6 vs. 2.0 would be a bore or stroke change - I wonder why all of the problems are the 1.6 only?

Wife stills loves her EB. The first three recalls were corrected before we took delivery. The last one took 3 hrs. PCM updated, ICM updated, MFT updated, cooling system pressure tested, washed, full tank of fuel and three cups of coffee and one hot chocolate.

It's great to see that Ford is aggressively taking care of 1.6L customers. Ford knows that this is a little embarrassing.

2.0 is a world motor and used a lot more than the 1.6. I love my 2.0 with 4WD I'm losing on some MPG but the tow and passing satisfaction is worth it

But the 1.6 motor is coming revised in the new 2014 fiesta ST so should be great. Also as for your differences if you look the 2.0 has a much lower compression than the 1.6. That's because it maxes out at 17 psi on a stock 2.0l ;)

Actually, the 1.6 and 2.0 are substantially different engines even though they are conceptully similar.

New 2014 1.6L eco boost owner checking in, so far me and the wife love it. It's really hers but I can't help but get on the forums and learn about them. Traded in her 2012 focus with no regrets. Ford family still, I have a 2012 mustang 5.0, or some call it the coyote, both awesome cars, curious what problems the 1.6L was having? Would the 2014 be more revised? If not, hey, that's why we have a warranty! Which it will keep, mustang warranty is long gone lol.

Hi all, new member:  Have a 2013 1.6 Eco Boost for just over a year. Bought with 42,000k and has been a wonderful ride until a week ago. It started the vibration at high speed(about 100kmh). Soon as let off throttle it returns to normal.  Had wheels high speed balanced but still persists. Have been reading on line this is pretty common but no one seems to have a definite answer to a fix.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Side note, took into dealer with 75,000k for coolant leak and they replaced the water pump, no charge. Was very happy with that.  Now if I could get radio to stop "freezing" it'd be nice.
