Great truck
By Roger on 12/02/08 17:29 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XL 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)

Review

I have had this truck about 7 years now and I love it. I tow horses, ATV's and snowmobiles. 2-3 times a year I tow a trailer from the San Francisco bay area to North Idaho. It has always towed excellent. I average while towing about 14-15 MPG. Highway driving I get 19-20 miles consistently without towing. I really enjoy my truck and plan on putting 300,000 miles on it. As of 12/2/2008 I have 88,xxx miles. Great truck

Unbelieveable Towing
By Mark Lagares on 08/10/08 13:10 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)

Review

I just bought the truck (my first one and a diesel to boot) because I needed to move heavy equipment from Missouri to Georgia. I towed a 33 foot long 8 foot diameter Emulsion Storage tank on a 40 foot gooseneck trailer. The tank alone weighed 11,000 pounds. I could not belive how well it ran with this 40 foot behemoth on the back. I still got almost 13 miles to the gallon. It took me 19 hours but I arrived feeling good - the seating and interior are very comfortable. I love this truck. I can't wait to add a chip and cold air intake.

Review

I always wanted an F-350. When I got it I was not disappointed. The only con is Ford did not design this truck with a infared ignition or any other kind of anti theft device. My truck has been stolen three times, recovered every time (lucky) with minimal damage. If you buy invest in a good viper systen vx770 and a fuel cut off system or a ECM cut off system. It dont stop em from breaking in. Buy it will keep em from taking it.

Super truck

Review

Looks good, runs and tows great, turbo gives lots of boost, seats are comfy, layout is good, and lots of room in the crew cab. Nice paint job, the anti-lock brakes (4-wheel disc) work properly if loaded or full. That alone is worth getting the truck. Mileage is 16 in town, 18-19 on freeway, but using fuel conditioner from Wal-Mart can get up to 21. Complaints: no armrests and the bed is too thin so it bends easily if loading pallets or heavy items. The master clutch cylinder is plastic and prone to need changing every 40-50k. Otherwise it is a great truck. Now have 97,000 miles.

2dr F350 Turbodiesel 4x4 w/auto

2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XL 2WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)

Review

I've been using my F-350 7.3L diesel automatic 96,000 miles for a daily driver and for pulling various trailers (mostly horse trailers) since I bought it in June 2001. I've been quite pleased. I check the tranny fluid for discoloration and change PROMPTLY to avoid auto tranny damage. The only problem I've had in the four and half years is an o-ring on the oil line going to the oil cooler came apart (losing quite a bit of engine oil and scaring me half to death) at about 40,000 miles. The dealership that fixed the o-ring implied the low oil pressure switch would have shut the truck down before any permanent damage (hopefully) if I hadn't seen the puddle and shut the truck down on my own.

Review

Bought the truck with 76K on it. Dealer was fair, paid $19,500. The 7.3L Diesel gets 16 in town and 18 on hwy. Put new tires on it and have had no problems as yet. Pulls a 17 ft bass boat like it isn't there. Regular oil changes that I do myself for about 50 bucks. Yep, parking is a pain but it's worth it. Plan to keep the truck till the wheels fall off. If you want a truck that will haul a lot of stuff and 6 people comfortably the 1998 to 2002 F350 7.3L is good buy if you shop carefully. I plan to later install a chip, cold air intake, and 4.5 inch exhaust. That should help with better fuel mileage. Other than that I'll leave it stock. It's my first diesel and I won't go back to a gas engine!

Bad Experiences with the Turbo Diesel
By Linda on 07/09/05 07:11 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 2WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)

Review

After the 1st year of ownership the truck went down hill. We had 4 different major oil leaks, starter problems, front end problems, and 2 times with fuel sensor problems. We finally traded it in for a Chevy Silverado. We couldn't depend on the truck to get us safely to our destination. Many of the items were covered by warranty, but you don't get anything for loss of use and the many times we had to make arrangements for our horses when the vehicle broke down. Ford would not help us even in arbitration.

Review

THIS IS MY SECOND F-350. FIRST ONE WAS HIT FROM BEHIND CAUSING $17,000.00 IN DAMAGE. WIFE AND GRANDBABY WERE NOT HURT AT ALL. THIS SECOND TRUCK WAS AN UPGRADE TO LARIAT. PROBABLY WOULD NOT GET LEATHER AGAIN...CLOTH WAS BETTER IN FIRST TRUCK. OVERALL THIS TRUCK HAS BEEN FLAWLESS. IN OVER 107,000 MILES IT HAS NOT FAILED TO DELIVER WHEN NEEDED. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS VEHICLE TO ANYONE NEEDING A "REAL TRUCK".
