When turning and accelerating from a dead stop, the rear end shudders momentarily as if the wheels are slipping on gravel. Happens only when trailering. The state agency I'm employed with bought a bunch of these 2008 and newer f450s and at least 2 have had radiator leaks on the plastic tank seams. That's $1600 a pop for the Ford dealer to replace the radiator. Another one was found low on coolant today after I gave the driver a heads up on our problem. My personal truck is a 97 f150 with 80K miles and its radiator went bad this past January. My wife's 97 Expedition started leaking right before Christmas. She was lucky, it leaked bad enough that we saw it before the engine was damaged: my truck had to have a new motor. I like Fords, but this makes me want to try something else.Report it
