I have a 2011 F250 with 2300 miles on it and everything is good except like everyone I would like better that 12.8 MPG.
The probelm that I am having is that when I leave from work I have to get to 55 mph right away and on 6 occations (not really pushing it hard) the truck shifts to 2nd and then shifts back to 1st and it feels like it died.
This never happens anywhere else.
I don't think that it is hurting anything as long as I don't over rev the engine but I am going to attempt to get it fixed.
I wonder if antone else has had this problem.
What a great truck!
I have owned several domestic trucks in the past and this truck is my favorite so far.
This is my first super duty diesel.
I'm 6'6" and I am very comfortable driving it.
There is plenty of room and the seat are awesome!
It rides nice and the new power stroke is powerful.
Ford did a great job with this motor.
It's quiet and smokeless.
I would definitely recommend this truck.
Have purchased a 2004 dodge ram, and 2007 and 2009 chevy silverado and they spent more time in the shop than time on the road. Frankly they were cheap junk. I bought my 2011 and havent had one bit of trouble even tho i was worried about the 6.2 gas engine. The truck pulls my 9,300 lbs camper without any problems. Was concerned about gas milage but its a heavy duty truck which has pulled everything that i have put behind it without any problems! stylish, comfortable and from my past....clearly the best truck on the market!
Well it's now been 6 months with my new diesel and it's been great! The only thing I took the truck in for was an update to flash the truck to 400 hp, 800 ft. lb of torque. This new diesel has been a major success so far, don't believe some of the negative reviews as they are probably being submitted by competitors. Ford seems to really be on top of this diesel and wants feedback from its customers.
This is by far the best truck i've owned.
I have been a GM man but with all the issues from my 2008 2500HD diesel i had to try something different.
Also, not very happy with the whole government motors thing.
Anyway, this truck gets great fuel mileage as i'm seeing 19-20mpg on the hwy and the power is just unreal.
Tows my 13K trailer like its a feather.
Inside the seats are comfortable and theres so much more room than the GM trucks.
I was very hesitant about moving over to Ford but now i'm glad i did.
