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


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
