2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab LB DRW (6.4L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6M)
This is my last update on our 2008 F-450.
I no longer wish to own this vehicle.
Do not buy a 2008, it will leave you broke!
As I was driving my kids home after their karate practice, we noticed a strange clicking sound coming from the engine.
The sound kept getting louder and louder so I was attempting to find a safe place to pull over in the middle of no where.
The truck just suddenly shut off.
I was told by our Ford service department today that we need a new engine.
Cost: $16,000 or the other "cheaper" option is a partial rebuild at $14,000.
"Internal problem" is their diagnosis.
So dissapointed in a truck I used to love.
It was a great truck when it worked.
Now it doesn't.
See my previous reviews.
All the things I hear about the 2008 models is true, just get rid of them!
The only improvement is not to buy one!
I see people are giving my review a thumbs down.
I'm sorry to tell you that everything that happened is true.
Are the people giving the thumbs downs perhaps Ford employees??
Everything I have said happened.
If you're a new 450 owner, I wish you well, but I was one of them and had the biggest headache of my life.
It was like flushing $50,000 down the toilet!
