My last F-450 review... it's DEAD! re-re-review
By peacepunk on


2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 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. Too late. 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.

Best Features

It was a great truck when it worked. Now it doesn't. See my previous reviews.

Worst Features

All the things I hear about the 2008 models is true, just get rid of them! The only improvement is not to buy one! Beware!!

My previous reviews were under "85punkrock". It's still dead btw. We now have a very expensive lawn ornament.

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!
