Let me start with the pro's, LOVE the interior and exterior of truck. spacious, comfy, tons of room. SUPER easy to drive. handles like a car ( we have the dually diesal) That is where the good stuff ends...and hard! we have had our truck for 50,000kms and have already plowed through 1 engine and are working on the second one slowly dying. Ford had NO idea what happened to this truck that died at 30,000kms. they tried to fix it for a month, fought with us over the rental truck costs, then finially repaced the engine. Since then they knocked something out of line under the truck and now when we turn corners there is a massive clunk and cabin shift. they deny it is even there, saying it is even "normal". our engine is also making the same noises it did before it died last time and spewing enormous black clouds of smoke for no reason....the last time we brought it in we could tell the head of repairs was livid at the ford company and looked us right in the face and said " I am susposed to tell you that is all "normal" my hands are tied, there is nothing i can do for you until it dies again" poor guy. We are locked into a 4 year lease and would loose a minimum of 10 grand if we flogged it right now. We want NOTHING to do with this truck after the warrenty runs out. they told us if this had all happened even an hour after the warrenty was up we would have been stuck with a $30,000 bill. Ford has ZERO customer loyalty, this model is a complete and utter lemon and this we know, we have no less than 7 friends who own this exact truck and we have ALL had varying degree's of lemon. I have also seen over the course of the summer 8 of these trucks on the side of the road being towed away.

Really liked the handling for a big truck. I didn't like being stranded the first day I purchased it in the middle of nowhere Mississippi because of a faulty fuel check valve that took all of hour and half and $197 to fix. But 5pm on a Saturday and the engine is shut down. Other wise its been okay since. Interior is very nice and seats comfortable. Would like to see little better fuel economy and acceleration but handles pretty good.

ILL START WITH THE FEW BADS... I HAVE A 08 F350 SUPER DUTY, IT HAS THE 5.4 GAS ENGINE, THE ONLY THING I WOULD CHANGE WITH THIS TRUCK IS FACTORY TOW MIRRORS. I EXPACTED FOR THE TRUCK TO HAVE GOOD POWER, BUT FOR IT SIZE BE KINDA SLOW... MY FIRST TEST WAS A 28 FOOT TRAILER, BUMPER HAUL, WITH A MUSTANG AND A CALIVLEAR ON IT...I MUST SAY GRANNY LOW IS AMAZING.

Has plenty of power for what I need, can haul goose neck with 300 bails about 18750lb of hay plus trailer. Rough on tires have 20k and half gone due to the torque. Before buying drove all the other truck and came to the conclusion that Ford put more into there trucks. Had a welding side business installing hitches the Fords are built a lot better. Drove GMC,Chevy fast but kind of light don't think can carry as much as the Ford safely. The new Fords have more power maybe Will try the new one when this one wares out.

Works Without Complaining

I bought a 2008 F 350 Diesel Dually, crew cab Lariat long bed and I love it! I own a landscaping company and almost every mile I drive the truck is there towing trailers or hauling topsoil, mulch, stone etc. No plowing but I would love to see it do that next winter. The truck starts up and runs awesome, even when it's cold out, no problems getting warm inside with the supplemental cab heater. The interior is very inviting and allows us to get work done on the drive back to the office or to job sites. Ample space in the back row for people/tools or whatever. Leather seats are a breeze to clean. Other things I love are the rear back-up sensor that allows us to hitch right up without repositioning the truck. Integrated Trailer controller works like the $200 after market one we had on our last truck. The transmission we have is the 4.10 limited slip, seemless shifting and power delivery from the engine to the wheels, even when it's pulling 14,000#. It moves without crying or any hickups. The exterior is nice, like the new bold design. Heated mirrors and powerscope help a lot when you have trailers behind you or for changing lanes...and checking on the load periodically. Ever since we got this truck we have been playing tons more music because of the 6CD changer as well. Great sound around the whole cabin. Furthermore, I love the tailgate step!! Why didn't someone do this years ago before we were getting old!!? Overall, this truck is very comfortable inside, for long drives or short ones. It does work towing or carrying anything. Brakes are responsive and non of that mushy faded feel you get on other trucks. That makes driving more relaxed and comfortable knowing not only the truck can accelerate the load but stop it safely as well. The only drawback is the fuel economy, stop-n-go driving kills it but the highway we can pull off 14-16 towing or 18-22 empty. I would strongly recommend this truck to friends and we hope to add them to our growing fleet as we grow in the future.

Great Truck. Never had a problem. Hauls more and tows more than any other truck on the market. When I go to pick up roofing materials, people come out to look at them loading the truck up because they have never seen so much weight on a truck. It handles 2 pallets of shingles with ease... which would probably pancake the chevy and the Ram wouldn't be able to move. When I sell mine it will be to get another Ford Superduty.
