2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
This is the second lemon Ford pickup I have bought and it will be the last I lost thousands of dollars on the first one, a 1983 F150; bad engine 3000 miles - in shop most of the first year I owned it or should I say it owned me. Ford was indifferent to my pleas for help then and things have not changed a bit. In 2004 bought F250 Harley Davidson model. Broke down on road first 400 miles. Been down hill ever since than with a laundry list of problems a/c blows on windshield whenever it has the mind to. Transmission slips out of gear in first, When fuel applied it bangs back hard enough to rattle your teeth. Bad tire on truck - Ford points finger at Goodyear , Goodyear points finger at Ford.
Check engine light on will be back to dealer for this after 4th of July holiday. Truck has had numerous recalls including total transmission tear down. Problems mentioned above could not be found by dealer, so never fixed. Will be trading this junk in after check engine light issue.
13000 miles on truck and will be losing about $25,000 dollars on this one. Buying Toyota FJ Cruiser hoping to spend more time driving, less time at dealership repair shops. I would suggest Ford stops building poor quality trucks and become responsive to their customer's problems.
