Are the bugs worked out of the 09+ f150's?

I was so close to buying an 05 f150 but after all the reading about broken spark plugs, cam phasers, exhaust manifolds etc I decided to leave it alone. Now, for the 09+ trucks with the 6 speed auto did they fix these 3 common problems? Is the 6 speed a reliable transmission for heavy towing? Thanks.

Seems that most are happy about their 09 F150's, but there are a few TSB's out on the 6 speed, most I saw were how the transmission shifted up and down. Before buying any automobile, I highly recommend looking up the recalls on that model and verifying they've been taken care of.

There are other TSB's on the truck, you can find them here: http://www.ownersite.com/tsb/tsbs.cfm/2009/FORD/F-150/ Bear in mind that al vehicles will have TSB's out on them, so don't let the list scare you off, but make sure they've been taken care of, or use them in a bargaining chip in getting the price down.

But as for safety recalls, the truck seems pretty safe: 2009 Ford F-150 Recalls
