PostSubject: Local Ford Dealer has Pissed me off!!!!!!!!!!!   Mon Oct 06, 2014 5:46 pm

2010 - F150 Lariat XLT crew cab:
70k miles the passenger manifold cracked - $1700 to replace it - figured it was a fluke. Around a 130k it developed an exhaust leak on the drivers side but I have ignored it because it's not bad. On the way back from TE Sunday it developed a serious whine coming from the rear end. I figured the ring & pinion was shot. So dropped it off at the dealer today. They called me late this afternoon and the ring & pinon is gone - $2100  WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They must be crazy to think a ring & pinion job is worth $2100. Driver side manifold is cracked $900   WTF!!!!!!!!!! It has a 142K miles, HTH does a ring & pinion go out with that low miles? Obviously the first manifold was not a fluke but rather a piss poor design that Ford knows about and refuses to fix!

Now I'm a Ford man and have been all my life but this has me rethinking Ford. In my mind Ford is the only American auto maker left after the bailouts but damn.......WTF are they thinking. I am going to fix this crap and then start looking for a new truck.

I feel your pain Joe. I was a die hard ford guy but ditched my f-350 after only 35,000 mi do to know design flaws that ford wouldn't take care of since I was out of warranty by 6 months. The radiator going out was the last straw and I went to a RAM. so far so good.

Yeah, I had a tranny go out in my 08 f 150 sc with 40k miles and ford wouldn't do squat even though the last three trucks I owned were bought at ford dealers. They told me that it was because I had them serviced elsewhere. If I had let ford dealers do all the routine oil changes and stuff they would have done some adjustments on the out of warranty repairs. I was pissed too. So when I decided to trade both my trucks for a new one I shopped and test drove all three but still ended up getting another ford because it was just a better truck. You Chevy and dodge guys can try to convince me all you want, and I won't argue that all three have very good diesels, but Ford just makes better diesel trucks. If I were to get another 1/2 ton it would be a Toyota.

Ive never had luck with Ford either. If you would be interested in trading into another 1500 series truck just go test drive a new ram with the hemi. In 09 the changed somethings on the engine and it was a big improvement. More HP and better MPG. Ive had a 2012 single cab and wife wanted more room so ive got a 2014 4dr now and have no complaints with either of them.

I started out my adult game in the Chevy camp....bought my very first brand new vehicle....85 Chevy 4x4 3/4 ton....so proud.....5 transmissions, 3 motors, 1 transfer case...later I sold my pride and joy...company bought me a new truck...a damn Ford diesel.....I hated it....all 173,000 I tried my best to break it...never could.....next truck....well....I still drive a Ford truck.....they all have issues but anything that can stand my driving for that long is tough.....I did come back to GM and bought a Cadillac CTS-V....that was a fast ass POS....transmission issues from day one....rear end made of glass..interior fell apart....but it was damn fast!!....brother switched to Dodge and keeps trying to switch me....he has a full time mechanic...I dont....I drive 50,000 miles a year and live in my truck....2013 has 55k on it already and I'll head out coast to coast wide open until some cop tells me I can't do that!!....Ford has a home in my driveway until something tougher comes out.

I was a die hard ford man untill 1996 when I bout a dodge 1500, not a bad truck put 130k on it and got a 2000 chevy crew dually 454, to tow my bigger trailer, what a pos. I then had a 2005 f350 6.0..........I think that's been covered by anyone who has owned the pos. I now have a 2007 dodge 2500 6.7 with 175000, fully deleted and love it. I also bought a 2006 srt8 300, best car I ever owned,  sold it to my buddy with 179000 and it's still running great.

More appropriate would have been the dealer pissed me off. Not really big issues but the price the dealer wanted to fix it was crazy. Took it to another dealer today, $1100 to fix the diff.....much more realistic. While I was there I spotted a 2014 F250 Lariat w/6.7L TD crew cab with 4k miles....let's see how much they come off the price, might have a new tow vehicle shortly thatsright

I grew up thinking because my dad, Pam's dad and mom all owned Fords that it was normal to have the transmissions and engines go out constantly on the F-150's and the cars. My first truck was a 58 Chevy and had no issues. I have had 2 S-10 Blazers go over 300,000 miles with no issues. I have had 1500 and 2500 Silverado's with no issues. I bought my used Duramax with 112,000 on it and it only has 126,000 on it now. No issues for me or the previous owners. It is like an RZR. Just because it is a new model, looks good and smells good, doesn't mean it is proven. The Duramax is proven for most of it's owners. I know some who have over 600,000 miles on them with the same engine and transmission. They haul with them daily for a living.

Yeah, no kidding. Look at some of the toy haulers in the campground and you know they have to be pushing the gvwr of the tow vehicles.

Congrats Joe. That size of trailer loaded was to much for the F150, IMO. Hope this one does you good.

I did talk to Mike Clark today. He has always had Duramax's, but switched to a F-350 dually I think it was this year or last. He was not happy with it and went back to a new Duramax.

The F150 towed good but was on the edge with a loaded down 30' trailer.

No comparing a 6.7L PS to a Duramax  thatsright

You'll love it. I traded my 2005 F-350 dually and 2008 F-150 Supercrew for a 2013 F-250 with the 6.7. It is by far the nicest truck I have ever owned.
