2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I honestly don't know why anyone would consider buying anything else. Bought w/150,000 mi. Replaced the fuel sensor about 2 yrs ago. That's it..at 160,000 mi!! Change the oil and go. Why on earth Ford stopped building this motor is exactly the reason why buyers are abandoning their trucks in droves. If you buy a 6.0L or a 6.4L, you deserve what you get. You would do well to talk to diesel mechanics first. I'm going to upgrade soon and I guess that I'll have to go to the GMC Duramax, much as I hate to. Just a great, great motor in a great truck.


Favorite Features

the motor will pull a freight train.


Suggested Improvements

Start building this motor again!!

Review

As a truck goes this is a great vehicle. Never had a problem hauling or towing. I used this truck to commute with occasional towing of a camper and boat. By no means an abused or roughly treated vehicle. Before buying one be advised about the cost of owning a HD Ford. The ball joints have to be replaced every 30K at a cost of $1,000 here in New England. The brakes and rotors replaced at 35K...yup close to another grand. Tires, normal wear but they're about a thousand too. Also replaced the front locking hubs twice already...600 bucks each time. Oil changes are more costly too especially since takes 16 quarts of oil! Expect to pay about $1,000 annually for maintenance.


Favorite Features

This is a beast of a truck. It is not lacking for power with the 7.3L diesel engine.


Suggested Improvements

Redesign the front end! The ball joint problem has been around for years. Can be eased by placing a zerk fitting (grease) on the ball joints. The front end also eats hubs...not a great feature to garner customer loyalty!

Review

Ordered new in 1/2002. Been all over the USA with it, off road, snow and towed cars and trailers, never had any problems at all. Only thing that quit was the overdrive button recently. Brakes replaced at 100k! New tires 3 times including originals, but other than that just routine maintenance. Used Mobil 1 oil since new. Ride is a bit bouncy but then I have offroad and camper packages so its expected. Wish the back seat folded flat for better loading, and would prefer a real ashtray like the older models had. I get 16mpg hwy driving with cruise and at speed limit, also added air bags in rear for hauling camper and building materials. I expect to go another 100k miles no problem.


Favorite Features

Can haul anything I tried-camper, trailers, boats,stones, dirt no problem


Suggested Improvements

Folding rear seat. make it go flat for better interior storage. Quicker steering/handling too would make it seem smaller, this thing is tough to drive in the city.

Review

Bought it new. Wanted the 7.3 diesel before the 6.0's came out. Turned out that was the right move! Got 13 to 17 mpg until about 45000 miles. Once past that mileage is 15.5+ in town and 21+ on the highway. Really a great truck! The only repairs have been, center link got sloppy, replaced it, Cam position sensor $30.00 part and 10 minutes to change, and cd changer went bad after 5 years and hard use. Got a replacement cd module that bolts into the radio in 5 minutes. So easy it suprised me. No mechanical problems whatsoever, never dripped a drop of anything. I think i'll keep it!


Favorite Features

Power of the 7.3 diesel, drives itself on the highway. Thankful for good fuel mileage at $3.33 per gal. of Diesel as of 02 09 08 . Classic simple Ford truck styling. It's like the 72' or 79' Ford trucks in that it will look good 20-30 years from now.


Suggested Improvements

The A/C could be stronger. It actually is an excellent unit, just not arctic air!

Review

I bought this truck used with 50,000 miles on it and in mint condition. I've owned a number of Ford trucks in the past including f-150s and f-250s and this one is the best of the bunch. It's an XLT with a long list of extras including the 6.8L v-10. All the interior options make for a nice enjoyable ride and that engine is fantastic. Endless acceleration and power.City driving gives about 10 mpg and highway is 15. This is driving with a lead foot.If the rpms are kept between 1500-2000 the mileage can be improved on. But, really, who buys a truck like this to drive like grandma?


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, nice sound system, gobs of power.


Suggested Improvements

The only addition I would make would be a spray in bedliner.
