Purchased new in 2003, has 45k on it now, has had only minor engine oil leak issues, engine runs strong, transmission (5 speed torque shift automatic) shifts perfect always, will tow and go anywhere in any weather, good family rig, front brake rotors starting to warp, we use the truck to tow 4 horse trailer, truck is still solid and in good shape.

Our 2003 Ford F-350 Crew Cab is what we should have purchased when we decided to get a new RV. We find the comfort of the truck is exceptional and ride is very good with or without a load. The only draw back is parking and making tight turns in parking lots.

Best F350 crewcab 4X4 1 ton pickup for the money

this truck has too many improvements to mention and is a great toy hauler, if you have any, otherwise it is a great highway cruiser. Sits high, and has a high end power ban. Set up for a travel trailer with electric brakes. I put new Michelin tires on it a few months ago, or less than a 1000 mile on it. I get 15 to 17 mpg on this 6.0 diesel, and haven't had problems. Average mileage since new is about 9K. these engines can go 500K with no trouble if not abused. I love traveling in it and will hate to part with it, but my senior priorities are changing.

This is the best truck/engine out there.

by from Virginia on December 15, 2009

Ford made the biggest mistake, changing the engine from this bullet proof 7.3L power stroke diesel. What an awesome engine.

When we purchased this truck it only had 43,000 Mike's on it. It's been the best/strongest Diesel we've ever owned for towing livestock and tractors. Until it hit the 145,000 mile mark. That's when it started ticking from the right side of the engine, loosing power, hesitating and surging when pressing on the acceleration and brake pedals. After looking at reviews on-line we came to find out that the 6.0 International Diesel engine Ford used for this model year was dubbed a "disposable" engine around 150,000 miles. Common engine failures included the injectors, and headgasket seal. I'm guessing our problem is one or more of the injectors which cost an average of $1,000 each to replace! We're wishing it was a 4cyl! Because it's not worth dropping $8,000 into the engine when the body/bed is completely shot and will cost $3,000 to replace.

The 2003 F-350 was one of the best investments ever made in my opinion. The 7.3 Powerstroke diesel engine is one of the most powerful and reliable engines which has reached 500000 miles under my driving. The truck as held up quite well cosmetically and is a great sturdy steel work horse.
