Excellent vehicle. The best vehicle I have ever owned, and that includes Cadillacs, Mercedes, Toyota's, Honda's, and so forth. I have never had a single problem with this vehicle. Not one. Zilch. I tow a 13,000lb 5th wheel, and it tows the camper like it is nothing. I pass not only semi's going uphill on the highway, but usually cars as well. This vehicle is a brute! 350 horse, and over 600 ft/lbs of torque, and it shows. Like driving a very large sports car. And, it is luxurious, and extremely comfortable. It is quiet for a diesel truck. What more could someone want? I want durability and dependability first- I NEVER want to be broken down on the highway, and I NEVER have been with this truck. Everything works perfectly every time. It's really incredible, when you think of the service that this truck is put through. I know there are lots of chevy guys reading this, and I know they love their trucks. I used to be a chevy guy too, but they drove me nuts with little problems. Mostly electrical problems. After suffering with these problems for years, I finally broke down a bought a Ford. Just recently, I bought a Chrysler for my wife, and it has been nothing but trouble. I also bought a little Toyota MR2 for my daughter, and I had to replace the transmission (manual) after 55,000 miles! Guess what, folks- I'm buying nothing but Fords from now on, because I just do not have ANY problems with these vehicles- EVER. Clearly, they really do mean it when they say Quality is Job One!
You don't have a selection of a F-450 Super Duty. I have a F-450 Super Duty and the transfer case exploded at approximately 73,000 miles. I am being told by FORD that it was caused from having only one manual hub engaged. Has anyone heard of this? How can only one hub become engaged if your are not 4-wheeling. There were no warnings or indicators to let me know that one hub was engaged so I have no idea how long it was engaged.
TWO OF MY RIMS HAVE CRACKED WITH NO ABUSE AT ALL DONE TO THEM. FORD WILL NOT STAND BEHIND THERE PRODUCT. JUST THOUGHT I WOULD PUT THAT OUT THERE
HAVE DAMAGE TO MY OIL PAN AND NEED TO REPLACE IT. CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME INSTRUCTIONS?
This truck is a gem to just drive, haul or tow BIG boats with. I have put 103,000 miles of both short (25, 200) miles, without so much as a hiccup. I have it serviced per the maintenance schedule, and put two additives in the fuel (Lucas Fuel Additive, and Gamma88 Fuel Conditioner). Mileage, if all in town, is a steady >15mpg. If all Interstate, I get >22mpg. A mixture of the two, say 50/50 will hang around 17 - 18 mpg). I figure my mileage using the standard formula of: milesDrivenBetweenFillup/totalGallonsToFill. I would like better mileage, however I believe that without any mods, this truck is giving me her best. Even after >100,000 miles, no rattles or wind noise. I do have one squeak - that being the driver's door when opening. The Air Conditioning does need to be serviced this year in preparation for our hot and humid summers. The drive train has picked up, what I believe is, a problem. In stop-n-go traffic, there is a very short, but noticeable time lag and drive train engagement when stepping on the accelerator. The lag feels like a "U" joint has too much play. All in all, I will not consider another brand heavy duty truck, as this one I grade as an "-A"
