3 blown Ford EcoBoost engines in 3 months

It's a ton of reading, so here's the gist of it.
1. Guy buys a nice new F150 with the EcoBoost
2. His nice new engine blows up. Ford eventually replaces the engine under warranty, but with some difficulty along the way
3. The new engine in his truck blows up shortly after getting his truck back.
4. After a lot of headaches and issues Ford once again installs a new engine.
5. Once again, his engine blows up. That's 3 engines in 3 months in the same new truck.
I think it's safe to say it's nothing the owner is doing to blow those engines up. Even if he was super hard on the truck, no way he kills 3 engines that quickly, not without breaking all kinds of other things too. Besides, Ford would have found evidence of wrongdoing by him. It's probably not 3 bad engines either, that's too unlikely. It's gotta be something else in that truck that is causing the engines to self-destruct. A ford engineer is now apparently working on his truck and they hope to get it repaired right this time and get him back on the road with the same truck.
He has tried to get them to buy back the truck with no luck. They have offered a slight discount on rental cars along the way, but otherwise have not supplied him with a rental or demo vehicle. There's been a ton of other headaches along the way for him. Ford Canada has really dropped the ball on this one.
Even if that truck is fixed properly, it has no resale value and never will ever again. Perhaps he could trade it in at a dealership, but he'd never be able to sell it privately, unless he didn't disclose its history. Ford Canada really should have bought that truck back for fair market value.
