Problems Galor! but it looks good
By Roger on 05/17/10 17:56 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB DRW (6.8L 10cyl 6M)

Review

I should have known better than to buy this vehicle when it first came out! But the body and interior styling wow'd me and I had previously owned a used 4WD Ford F250 I adored. While this truck looks good and pulls great, I'd really love to give it back if I could afford to. Initially smoking (white)and running terrible, dlrshp said regenerating..NOT..EGR is still acting up and during winter it literally would not run sometimes. Same problem continues, along with whining in "Y" pipe or turbos - they haven't determined. Radiator was replaced and new one leaking again right outside warr period. Replaced A/C hose due to design flaw and A/C compressor has now locked up! Too many issues!

NO LOW END POWER
By KT FROM CALLI on 05/06/10 15:01 PM (PDT)

2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty XLT 4dr SuperCab LB DRW (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Review

Don't be in a hurry to turn against the traffic unless you have a good heart. There is no power below 2,000 RPM, after that the truck just kicks you into the back seat. It's agood thing they put a 40 gallon fuel tank on the truck, at 10.5 MPG you need it. They need to inprove the off the line performance and the fuel economy, other than taht the trucks has live up to my expectations.

Ford won't honor warranty
By Big Tim on 02/04/10 08:37 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty Lariat 4dr SuperCab 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Review

I have been a Ford man for the last ten trucks owned. No longer. Bought this beauty of a truck with all the bells and whistles, been proud as a peacock til now. First, had a problem with the HVAC fan, consistently has a ticking and humming sound, taken in several times, no issues according to the technician. Now, while driving, the engine stalled. Took it in and found the high pressure fuel pump faile and sent metal filings into system. Ford sent a tech out and took samples, responded via fax that they were voiding the powertrain warranty and would not cover repairs. Said there was too much water in fuel system. When asked why their fuel/water separator did not catch, no response.

Review

Operated many Diesels over time, chev dodge ford. This is the first Owned Diesel and picked the Ford over anything else, better ride, lots of power, impressive styling, reliability, functionality, and minus 35 c 2 weeks ago! forgot to plug the engine in! gues what! it started! beat that Cummins or Duramax!and a very quiet engine. people complain about fuel milage? ok, but i do get 11mpg loaded to the 9's but empty 13 in town and 18 on hwy. poor mpg is NOT Fords fault! chev & dodge had to add DPF's as well, in reading all other reviews.. will try the Edge programer for better MPG, will advise in the future.

2008 Crewcab 4x4 6.4 diesel

Vehicle

2008 Ford F-350 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

Review

This was my first diesel truck, after going from a GMC 1500. Ive towed up to 19k with this without a problem, eventhough its only rated for 16k with the gooseneck. I highly reccomend a dpf delete kit to get better mileage. It wont improve it much, but you don't have to wait for the truck to finish cleaning the filter before you shut it off. I average around 13mpg around town, 17mpg highway. One of the best trucks I have ever owned, now has 23,000 and has been very dependable.

Tundra killer

Review

When so many are buying all the junk from oversees, it is refreshing to know at least FORD is still building such strong trucks. We been very satisfied with this beast. The fuel mileage sucks but a programmer from Edge helped push it into the low 20's. It has been flawless so far. It tows better than any truck I've ever been around. Bring it on tundra boyz.

Review

i have 7000 miles on the 6.4. it has lots of power. anyone that owns one get a 4 inch ext. tuner and you will not have any problems. the reason some are is that these engines r so restricted back because of the govt these engines need to breath just like us and their not letting them. dont believe me go buy a 08 dodge cummins its having the same problems. so its not ford dodge or chevy. these engines produce so much horse power and torque that with resrtictions its hurting more than helping. so what im saying is help out your engines.. i deal w them everyday look at the engine prior to 2003 and they all era great thats because govt. wasnt involved

I have had this truck for almost 2 years. Till now i have changed 2 radiators, and almost $6000. And the white smoke is still blowing out of the tail pipe. Moreover I need to add 1 gallon of coolant every 200 miles.
