2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Drives great, tows and has enough power. However- nothing but problems with the Turbo Diesel. Had it 2 1/2 years, and in that time it has had major engine problems at least 3 times. The Turbo went out. The "viens" in the diesel colapsed. The # 6 injector failed completely while on a trip, towing a trailer. Had to get it towed from the "middle of nowhere" to the dealer to fix. Under warranty, had a deductable of $100.00. After that, they covered the cost. BUT that did not cover the tow, and it did not instill any confidence for our next trip. Not sure, but if one more thing happens, it's gonna get traded in for a Dodge. Not at all happy with the diesel engine's reliability.


Best Features

Great looks. Nice power. Wish it were more reliable.


Worst Features

Don't block the speedometer with the steering wheel. Poor placement. My old '99 F 150 has been a dream. Over 200,000 miles, and still going. Not so, the 250 diesel. Speedometer placement much better in the F150. Ford shouldn't have changed it. Got the leather bucket seats. Not comfortable.

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Had several F150s but needed something to pull my 30ft RV in the Colorado mountains. Scored a 2005 SD, SC, Lariat, FX4 LB w/33K. This is an awesome truck. 6.0L powerstroke is incredible. The truck commands the road and most nearby traffic. It's loaded with just about every option and very comfortable. Leather is top quality, roomy, eye appealing inside and out. Handles well for being as big as it is. Have only had it a short time and already getting compliments. Liked the 2005 model changes to the grill best so went with that year. Suits me just fine. If it's like my other Fords, I'll get years of reliable service.


Best Features

Powerful engine, torque shft trans, luxury car in a truck body, heavy, beefy suspension, stereo system, built in brake controller, tire/rim combo, big front end, even bigger cargo box, quality of craftsmanship ie; assembly and paint. This is another example of why I've always owned Ford trucks!


Worst Features

Fuel economy

2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I love the exterior, looks great. Interior was nice, but for a taller guy in the back the extended cab doesn't have all that much room. Hauling capacity is great. In the cold of north east Ohio it had a problem starting, once it started it was ok. This started at approximately 2000 miles. I took it for service and it was hooked to the diagnostic computer. Upon return I was told that until the on board computer trips the service engine light there is nothing we can do for you. When it doesn't start at all, or the light comes on, bring it back. Handling was ok. Lots of engine noise. Six speed manual transmission was nice, but clutch plate made noise sometimes upon engagement.


Best Features

Exterior look. Nice ride with good power. 4wd with manual locks and heavy duty suspension was great.


Worst Features

Please put some storage compartments under the back seats. Also please turn the door handles around for those who use the truck as a 4wd so nothing hooks them and tears them off, make them open from back to front

Review

This is the first truck I can truly say meets ALL my needs and most of my wants. It is large, roomy, comfortable and powerful. With the diesel engine it doesn't even know a trailer is behind it even when the trailer is quite heavy. It is a pleasure to drive, though I do think the brakes are a bit spongy. I would also be happier with a bit more mileage from the diesel engine. All in all it is the best truck I have ever owned.


Best Features

Full width running boards, diesel engine.


Worst Features

Radio controls on the steering wheel, GPS as an option.
