2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Regular Cab XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Good truck, gas mileage terrible!!!! Having trouble with right front brake dragging (rim gets coal black in 1000 miles), 2 dealers both refusing to make repairs "can't get paid from Ford, because it'snot bad enough). Ford's 800# customer service is very bad,they just want to get you off the phone. I guess I'll have to pay for repair myself despite the warranty. I will never buy another Ford!


Best Features

Tough built


Worst Features

Turning radius bad, gas mieage terrible, Ford customer service stinks refuse to help customers.

Review

The truck rides rough. You feel every bump in the road and on the tracks. The truck will lag at acceleration. If you try to pass a slow moving vehicle or enter the highway, the truck's RPMs will lug and you have to pull over so you don't cause an accident. The truck's steering wheel doesn't move up or down to make the cluster visible. The seat is a simple bench seat, so if you have to move the seat forward or backwards you the passenger isn't comfortable. Gas mileage isn't up to par. I maybe getting 12-13MPG at best. If you need a new truck buy a Chevy.


Best Features

Does have the trailer brake system control which will control the brakes to prevent jackknifing.


Worst Features

Better fuel mileage, higher engine torque. Seat could be split bench type like Chevrolet. The truck can use improvement in design like smoother ride.

Review

I bought it for a work truck, it has a fisher plow, and it's absolutely the best truck I've ever had. My only complaint is the cheap plastic strip at the top of the tailgate which I've broken twice in under a year, loading bikes and sleds. otherwise I think ford got it right this time!


Best Features

My truck has A/C and power windows, otherwise stripped as far as creature comforts, I just like the Ford philosophy of truck building, which is to use lots of steel.


Worst Features

Fix the tailgate top!

Review

Driveability - abysmally dangerous. The engine decelerates at irregular, random rates making shifting incredibly challenging. Shifts on flat road may take up to 5 seconds to complete (on uphill grades, they might only be done by slipping the clutch). Truck will accelerate by itself to over 2500RPM even in gear. Engine braking is negligible and may turn into acceleration. Dealer says this is normal. The shifter Low/Reverse lockout works sporadically. The fuel tank sloshes when over half-full (sounds like a loose baffle). Truck is taller than the 6'8" specs so wont fit in most garages. Fuel hog despite advanced technology. Engine vibrates. Roof drains into open door or window, onto switches!


Best Features

Coil-sprung solid front axle with locking hubs. Manual transmission available unlike GM. Decent optional radio.


Worst Features

Fix the computer so the truck is safe, let alone reasonable to drive. Make it 2" shorter so it can fit into parking garages. Improve the mileage. Fix engine vibration. Enlarge the foot wells. Move trailer plug to a less vulnerable place (It's currently the lowest on the rear of a 4x4). Nuke box caps

Review

Great truck for pulling a trailer. Far superior to any Chevy truck I ever owned. Comfortable, looks great, rides nice, quiet (for a diesel), but I'm getting 9 mpg currently. Hoping for more as I add more miles to the odometer. At $4/gallon for diesel these days, who can afford to drive one of these bad boys?


Best Features

Pulling capability; comfort


Worst Features

At least 15 mpg! C'mon!
