Transmission not so good
By E Morenus on
2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I own a '03 7.3L powerstroke, at the lake the transmission went out with only 52,000 miles on it. I took it to the dealer figuring the 100,000 mi powertrain warranty would cover it, it didn't. $ 4,000 later and the new transmission (refurbished I add) has a better warranty than the origional one. I'm dissapointed when I pull 14000K worth of equipment. I've heard wonderful things but haven't experienced the greatness of the 7.3L. Soon trade for a new twin turbo F-350 or a Dodge Cummins
Mileage for such a heavy truck. Pulling light trailers is easy, you don't know it's there. 4WD works wonderfully in any condition. Beat the heck out of it and it'll keep going. Great work truck.
Braking (very hard on truck), origional transmission needs to be able to handle more than 30,000 miles before warranty ends. $110 oil changes. $175 fillups (not Ford's fault.) window motor makes noises when rolling down.
