Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?

My first truck was a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 5.7L engine. I leased it, thank God, because the transmission started to go out at 60K miles and the navy blue paint cracked up front due to engine heat (fenders and hood). In 2005 I bought a Ford F-250 with the 6.0 diesel engine. I had nothing but exhaust & EGR problems and could only get 10 miles to the gallon. I got rid of it with 50k miles. In 2014 I bought a F-150 3.5l echo boost, at 52k miles I had a turbo by-pass value problem     ( $800 repair) and at 65k miles I had the rear differential go out ($2300 repair). Let's not forget that Auto-Nation Ford charged on top the charges $165 diagnostic fees.

Ford is very misleading in their commercials, they do not build quality, with 100 plus years building vehicles they should guarantee a 100,000 mile warranty to prove their quality like other vehicle manufacturers. To compare I bought a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 6.7l diesel and only had to replace/rebuild transmission at 150k miles. Based on my experience Ford builds vehicles to fail, to put money in the pockets of dealer service departments and parts manufacturers. And what sucks even worse, I have a 2015 and 2016 Ford F-550 in my business fleet with less than 10k miles I can only imagine what Ford failures are in store for me with them. Just so you know I called Ford Motor company and they could care less, they just kicked me back to the dealer.
