F450 nothing but trouble
By f550owner on


2008 Ford F-450 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB DRW (6.4L 8cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Replaced 3 radiators, one at 17k, then at 34k then at 75k, and then a new engine.
Fought with Ford, and wound up hiring a lemon lawyer and received a settlement of 20k, 5k to the lawyer, 15k for a used rebuilt engine, plus a 6 month delay while i maintained payments of nearly $900 a month.

I settled, but others should get their money back, i would love to hear from others who may have had success in getting or receiving a settlement.

Note: i have 104,000 miles and was out of warranty, they told me to pound sand

Best Features

everything but the engine

Worst Features

put a Cummins engine in
