Truck is somewhat disappointed me

2009 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Overall, this truck has performed well. However, at 6,400 miles the truck left me stranded on the side of the road at 4 a.m. "Miles to Empty" message center was reading 46 miles to empty (light had just illuminated 4 miles earlier) and truck lost power and died. Towed to Ford dealer. Had to pay over $150 in diagnostics because it was out of fuel. Ford will not acknowledge anything wrong with miles to empty calculator and was told to keep fuel tank 1/2 fuel to prevent problem. Ford customer svc was not helpful and refused to admit anything was wrong with the truck. Ford service tech admitted he's seen this before and Ford has a serious problem with these units. Last Ford purchase.

Best Features

Engine and transmission very smooth & powerful. Interior is akin to a luxury car.

Worst Features

Improve quality of miles to empty calculator or remove completely if not able to improve upon the design. Fuel economy could be better.
