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


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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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


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?


Favorite Features

Pulling capability; comfort


Suggested Improvements

At least 15 mpg! C'mon!
