After the warranty period my repairs have included 7 injectors, head gaskets, egr cooler, engine oil cooler, high pressure and low pressure oil pumps, fuel pump, egr valve, and broken lifter/broken cam. Finally replaced engine with used 2006. Cost repairs at Ford garages total over $23,000.00 plus lost income & expenses. All break downs at very inconvenient times and places. If you use your truck in any business at all, Ford will not help. And the lemon law does not apply to you. If you plan on keeping a truck for more than 3 years or driving it more than 100,000 miles. then my advice is to shop around, friend.
Many thousands of these one ton diesels are purchased each year to be used to deliver new camping trailers to dealers. 100,000 miles per year is normal. Need a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty. A 373 rear gear option. Bigger exhaust. Dual oil filters. Alternator gauge.
