Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

F-350 8-cyl Diesel

  • 20,000 miles


This vehicle has had numerous engine failures which I will list below. I spend alot of time in rural locations between 50 and 100 miles from any service facilities in all kinds of weather. Usually there is not any cell service available. It is only a matter of time before I or someone is stranded in bad weather because of the poor engineering on the 6.0 liter diesel that Ford installed in my vehicle. This could well be life threatening and lead to death in the future. 6/12/06 turbo failure-covered by warranty by Ford - 20000 miles 7/15/06 recall on computer-covered by warranty by Ford- 21000 miles 4/8/11 egr cooler blew out- out of pocket cost $1703.46- 90619 miles 8/28/12 injectors failed- out of pocket cost $2178.09- 110732 miles 8/30/12 rear wheel seal and emergency brake failure- out of pocket cost- $703.06- 111423 miles 10/12/12 turbo failure again- out of pocket cost $2577.75- 113473 miles you can see the ongoing theme here and when I talk to Ford they say "sorry but we have no recalls and no customer service help at this time." They need to take resposibility before something happens and it puts peoples lives at risk. As the owner of this vehicle I would like to be included in any class action lawsuits against Ford for not taking responsibility for the 6.0 liter engineering disaster that they created. Hopefully someone will make them step up and provide the buyers of these engines the help they need and deserve.
