Buy the Truck, avoid the dealer by Larry on 12/27/2011. Trim: 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT Crew Cab 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The truck appears to be well built, the new diesel engine has/had gobs of power and got wonderful fuel mileage until I took it to the dealer for a service bulletin that required a computer remap. Mileage dropped 15% and performance went down, the trans shifts terrible. Worse yet, the dealer is not interested in trying to fix it, so much for warranty and service after the purchase. It is so lousy, it may as well be a Dodge.
Cons: It used to get almost 22 mpg on the highway, then I took it in for a "free" oil change and a service bulletin on the engine computer. When they finished it got 18mpg on the highway and the trans shifts are mushy and off. I took it back and they simply stared at it like monkeys watching a soccer game. The dealer service. Avoid it at all costs. Our local Ford dealers offer DEF at nearly $50.00 a gallon, if you buy it at NAPA it is $4.69. The truck itself is pleasant to drive, nice seating position and runs like a top.
Overall review: Pick your dealer carefully and you will enjoy your truck a lot more. I love Fords, I despise their dealer network. The total lack of concern for customers and the limited knowledge of their mechanics is a deal breaker for me. Maybe they should start a training program of some type? The parts department takes their pricing ques from the movie theatre and airport concessions folks. Hopefully nothing breaks, warranty is bound to be a joke.
