2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


I had a 2005 F-250 4x4 diesel that was towed out of my garage 7 weeks after buying it for electrical issues. By the beginning of 2009 it had been towed a total of about 7 times to the dealer for not starting, once was right after Ford put THEIR own batteries in it, thinking that would "fix" the issue since they believe it was the Walmart batteries that were killing the engine (even though it didn't come off the lot with Walmart batteries).

Best Features

The truck got great gas mileage, even after we put an 8" lift on it and the power was amazing. We absolutely loved it other than it constantly dying on us. :o(

Worst Features

I believe they stopped making the worthless engine that came in the 2005's and it came too late because they bought back a load of them but it's their own fault for trying to cut corners on the engine that year.
