2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT 2WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


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!


Best 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.


Worst Features

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

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.


Best Features

Engine. Pulls heavy loads well. Cruise control is great. Can go 600 miles on a tank of fuel (about 30 gallons). 100,000 mile engine warranty. It's HUGE and gets MAJOR respect/fear on the road (no one honks at me when I drive like an ass!) Cavernous interior.


Worst Features

Tighten up the manufacturing tolerances in the driveline! Recall and redesign the front rotors! Interior design is boring.
