Why buy anything else??

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.

Costly to maintain

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.

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.

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!

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?

First truck

Review

Bought in June of 2005, This F250 SD extended cab LB 4x4 has been excellent so far. It is the "true blue" color which looks awesome. Inside, captains chairs with a huge center console. There are more cupholders than seats, (5) seats. (6) cupholders. Very easy to clean cloth. A/C thumbs up. Also very quiet, even with dual 4" straight pipes. 5.4L engine could use a little more power and the headlights could be brighter but truck is an excellent fun to drive vehicle, except in tight spots. Gas mileage with tonneau cover averages about 20 on highway, 8-12 in city. Braking power is enormous. Truck runs great with almost 61,000 miles. Only the trailer hitch rusted quite a bit but has not gotten to anything else.G

Review

7.3 litre diesel w/6-speed manual. The high pressure oil pumped leaked and needed to be replaced. The clutch master cylinder failed. The pass. window rattled when down. The tailgate lock, locks automatically. After the autopump sensor stops the flow of fuel to the tank, you can slowly pump another 6 gallons in the tank. The front rotors needed to be replaced or turned every 5,000 miles due to warping. This is a chronic and known problem with these vehicles. Worst of all there is EXCESSIVE driveline lash in the rear end/transmission/transfer case. It is VERY noticable between shifts and upon moderate acceleration. I wouldn't buy another Ford pickup.

My F250 has the 7.3 Powerstroke. So many people say that these trucks aren't great for gas mileage, but obviously you aren't buying these for that purpose. However, spending the extra $5,000 for the diesel will pay for it itself. It gets far better mileage than the V10 or Triton, lasts longer, pulls better and will more than pay for itself when it comes down to resale value. Just look at the prices on used trucks with these 3 different motors.

F250 Rocks!

Review

I have wanted an F-250 for a long time so I finally got one. It is a great truck! I got the PowerStroke diesel. The truck is very powerful. Of course the diesel is probably not as quick as the V-10, but it is quite surprising for a diesel. I love the fact that it has front and rear solid axles for strength and durability. While everyone else is going to independent suspension to improve ride and handling,I am glad that Ford has not done that on the Superduty. The ride of this truck is EXCELLENT for a truck! Ford really did it right.

Ford has done a great job with all aspects of this truck. Even the fuel economy is better than you would think but not great, between 12 and 13 on my 5.4 V-8.
