Super Duty/Powerstroke review

2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)


I have had no trouble in 15 month's
and 13,800 miles. The mileage from
the powerstroke gets
better as more miles are run up. I
have been disappointed in the paint on
my vehicle. Excellent visibility from
the elevated driving position and the
headlights. DO NOT buy one without
foglights. I cannot say enough about
the powerstroke. What a fine piece of
engineering. I have put in a K&N
filter and will go to a chip in the
next few months. I have been getting
18mpg on the road and expect that to
keep getting better. Diesel is strong
in 4 wheel drive and I have yet to get
stuck on my hunting lease. Tires will
spin easily even on dry pavement

Best Features

The POWERSTROKE engine. Driving position and visibility. Love the extended towing mirrors. The mirrors and foglights are worth the extra money.

Worst Features

I would want to see a better quality of paint on a $40,000 vehicle and a little better pickup in 1st gear with the auto transmission. I would also suggest a traction control devise to keep the deisel from overpowering the tires in 4 wheel drive. A bigger fuel tank would be nice.
