Are there any problems with the Ford Fiesta EcoBoost?

Are there any reports of failures/problems with the Ford Fiesta EcoBoost 'wet' cam belt? Any concerns regarding the claimed 150,000-miles or 10 year life predicted?

Ford experienced cooling issues with older versions of the EcoBoost engine (built before 2018). This problem was fixed after a Ford recall, which replaced the degas pipe. If you are thinking of buying one of the affected models, the owner should have paperwork to show this recall has been carried out.

In regards to the wet belt, I've unaware of any serious issues. It should last the life of the car, so long as the oil is kept clean with a yearly change.
