"I like the way my truck looks and handles loads (suspension wise anyways). I like the interior aswell. I believe that the 6 liter diesel does not accomodate the size of my vehicle or the payload possibilities. Turbos do not make up for cubic inches. I buy 350's to work and tow and so far I have had trouble with all three of my diesel trucks. My troubles range from blown headgaskets to turbo trouble and guess what when you have to put your heavyduty truck into the shop for weeks at a time they want to loan you a F150 or a car."
Cons: "price of diesel went up the day I bought the truck"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"having owned small truck fleet of various USA makes Must say the F-350 has been the best truck we have ever owned. Also have a 2004 Sport trac with 160,000 miles and am very happy with this vehicle also"
"It is an incredible truck! mine has been in and out of the shop, but it is due to an aftermarket programmer i installed. without that, the truck would have ran perfect! stay away from bullydog chips and you'll have no problems. i do have the 6.0 and other than minor problems here and there, its a great engine. i would advise that you invest in any additional warranties they offer when purchasing the vehicle."
"drive and pull trailers all the time. have replace one rear caliper in all those miles nothing else but tires and the rear brakes every 70000, never has needed the fronts. It's lifted and programmed wouldn't trade it for another.
My truck is loaded and have no troubles or even replaced a bulb.
It did need batteries but it I've had it since 05
maintenance is the key"
"Up to 100,000 miles great. After that, not so good. Between 105,000 and 145,000, I have put $6,000 into major mecanical repairs, injector control pump, colloing system, and AC system. This truck is no longer reliable enough for me."
