    I have a 2019 F250 with 11300 miles. Had steering damper recalled in 2022. Replaced that. It went out again in 2024. Today the shimmy is back. Taking it in to dealer. I think there is a different component causing the issue and Ford just picked the cheapest fix.

    The upper oil pan gasket is a joke on the 6.7L diesel engine. The gasket is held in place with silicon. Over time the gasket starts to fail and creates an oil leak. The repair to replace the seal $4500. This problem can reappear again overtime. This is the reason why I sold the truck.

      My truck was ordered direct from the factory. It took almost three months to arrive and I have only enjoyed it for a few days. First it had to go back to the dealership, because there was overspray from the bed liner on the rear lights. Within one week, the SYNC 3 screen went black, while I was driving. I was able to do a reset, but it lasted only a week. We also did the reset by opening the door, locking, etc. to no avail. Now while trying to do a reset, it makes a weird sound. An appointment is schedule for Monday, so once again we will be without our truck. We were planning on using it over the holidays, but it appears if we do, we won't have any of the features (backup camera, map, radio prompts, etc.). If I would have known, that this was an ongoing issue with Ford trucks, I would have never purchased one.

      I purchased my 2017 Ford F250 (SD 4wd Dsl V8 Crew Cab Lariat) in August 2018. The sales process was questionable and certainly a little old fashion, but this is not the point. I keep the vehicle tidy and make sure to bring it to service always in time. I've had to bring it in for probably 4 or 5 recalls and other warranty issues, including sun roof not working, rear door that would not open, rusty bumper after half a year (it is rusting again!!), DEF sensor... - so many that I lost count.

      I started to change the air filter myself since the prices to exchange such parts make absolutely no sense.

      The vehicle is just under 100,000Kms and now I have to bring it because the DEF sensor does not work and have to change it as well as the wiring harness for $1100 (Canadian). I am told it is usual for those vehicles at this mileage and not covered by the power train warranty! So basically a Ford is not built to last more than 60k miles?! I will hopefully never again buy a Ford.

      My 2018 F350 developed death wobble (when the steering wheel shakes back and forth uncontrollably) at 11,000 miles. Ford said it was the stabilizer, it wore prematurely. They replaced it and I thought all was good. I didn't know of d.w. then and of course Ford did not mention it. Within 2 months wobble was back and this time Ford said it was the dampers. This time the truck was in service for 1 month because Ford could not get the dampers because they were on backorder because of d.w. problems around the country. After getting truck back it was good for 2 weeks before wobble was back. Contacted Ford was told to make service appointment again they would see what they could change this time. At this time Ford admitted they had a huge problem with their super duty trucks and the front suspension and they basically do not know how to fix problems. Unfortunately I had to get rid of truck and buy a different brand.

      I purchased a 2015 f350 xlt diesel new on 12/19 2015. First problem occurred in first month. Six months later turbo failure. As time went by numerous sensor and engine problems occurred. After 4 years of ownership I only put 30000 miles on vehicle, a third of the miles put on are talking it back and forth to dealerships. I had originally planned on keeping the truck for 10 or more years, avoiding a lot of unnecessary miles. Truck lost another turbo, several injectors, fuel pump, and several other issues. Truck never ran well and rarely ever got above 13 mpg. Truck averages over 100 days a year in the shop and is getting worse.

      Now truck has a bad engine and has been in the shop for 2 weeks, and will probably be in the shop for another 2 weeks, due to Ford's idiotic warranty policies. Instead of just replacing the faulty engine with a new crate engine they are wasting time by the slow procedure of a tear down and inspect. This truck and ford as a company are awful.

      Living in an area of the country that seasonally is subjected to sub-freezing temperatures has revealed a design flaw in my 2015 F350 SD Crew cab with the 6.7 Ltr Diesel. In sub-freezing temperatures of -10 F. or lower the system was unable to regenerate and clean out the exhaust filter and now the truck faces a $9,150 "repair". The issues are that the system does not get hot enough to completely burn out the deposits in the filter and eventually plugs completely. Upon researching this further this is a common problem in climates that have subfreezing temperatures. My research also revealed that once the "repair" has been completed there is a high percentage of it occurring again.

      As a business owner, the potential of a reoccurring maintenance cost in this category does not make sense to move forward with. I asked the dealership service department about the research I had found and they were very tight lipped about it. I asked about the claims of it reoccurring after it was replaced and they did agree that the likelihood of having the issue again was very high. Ford Corporate service department also agreed that the cost of the "repair" was excessive and didn't make sense. I spoke to both parties about Deleting the system and both of them agreed that the cost of deleting the truck (which removes the likelihood of it occurring again) was more cost effective.

      The Ford corporate representative said that they were willing to pay for half of the repair, if it was done at the dealership. Half of the repair estimate from the dealership is $4,575. I found this to be very generous and an admittance that the cost of the repair may be excessive or possible a design flaw for the climate in which I live. I asked Ford Corporate for a settlement of a little over half of their offer, $2,300 to have the repairs done at another mechanics shop and they said it had to done at the dealership in order for them to pay double that amount, or half of the total. I told the customer service person I would be picking up the truck and they offered to pay for the dealers diagnosis invoice charges.

      In the end I picked up the truck from the dealership and Ford Corporate paid the fee of $378 to the dealership. I will now seek an alternate method to get the truck running. I am very disappointed in the fact that everyone involved, the Dealership service department, Ford Corporate Service person, myself and all of the research I found online indicated that it was a design flaw and that the repair costs would not justify completing them.

      This vehicle is truly a designed for purpose vehicle. It is exceptional at towing large loads and is much easier and less expensive to maintain than the 05 model I had. It drives like a car, is very quiet for a diesel and very comfortable on long trips. Safety features and creature comforts are plentiful on king ranch model. Build quality is very good and ride inside is noise free from wind and engine noise. Power is way more than needed but appreciated when pulling a big fifth wheel through Colorado mountain passes. It makes the drives less stressful knowing that you are safely towing the weight behind you. Manual function and gear lock out on transmission also are great towing aid that make this truck a much more useful vehicle than past years. The 6.7 power stroke is a hit for maintenance power and durability.

      This has been a fine truck that has given me no problems in over 4 years of ownership. The fuel mileage is nothing to write home about but I am pulling a 40 foot fifth wheel trailer and a 12 ft utility trailer most of the time.

      I bought my Ford F-250 Super Crew before every Tom, Dick, and Harry truck maker started selling mini crew cabs. The mileage isn't great, but I don't have to worry that it won't pull my boat. Also, it can get out of its own way in heavy traffic.
