Bad safety features

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD LB DRW (6.8L 10cyl 6M)

This truck has no turning radius at all. It bounces so much when speeds exceed 50 mph that your teeth rattle. In addition, Ford chose to remove some essential safety features, like LATCH anchor for children. I hate this truck. I will never buy a Ford again, or from the dealership




Best truck i've ever had

Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD LB DRW (6.8L 10cyl 6M)

This truck has been flawless. At 26,000 miles all I have done is put oil and fuel in it. I pull a 40' gooseneck trailer and that has worked great. I have the diesel engine; it is the dually and it rides well. It is a truck so don't expect a Caddy ride. Fuel mileage is not great but I geared it for pulling power, plus it's so fun to drive that it's hard to not put the throttle to the floor. Had Chevys before, spent to much time in the shop with them and the brakes stunk but the Ford built in brake controller works really great and you can stop this truck w/ABS, not with the Chevys I had. Their ABS tands for not braking soon.




2004 f-350 joy to drive

Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD LB DRW (6.8L 10cyl 6M)

F3-50 Crew Cab Long Box 4X4 V-10 Power. An absolute BEST BUY at $26,000. Single rear wheels capable of 10 tons on a 40' gooseneck tandem dually trailer.True gas mileage not as good as diesel. Factory rated tow capacity is 1400 pounds more than dually diesel and costs $12,000 less. You can buy a lot of gasoline for $12,000. And you can see where you are backing up. Now for the CONS: The steering radius on this truck stinks! We have owned 5 Power Stroke 1 Ton Duallys. All of them were 7.3 liters. The 6.0 liter engine failures are well documented . For heavy usage the 6.0 is not the way to go. The 6.0 will never equal the 7.3! The V10 325 hp & the torque are far superior to the 6.0.




V10 dualies

My current truck is the sixth unit I have had in the last ten years from Angola Ford. Best damn truck on the road. Pulls like a dream but as expected the fuel economy sucks. Can't have everything but thanks to Ford and dealers like Angola Ford I won't change.
