Can you say LEMON?

Orderd my truck oct.03 took delivery dec.03. 2000miles it had water pushing out the overflow, took it in and was told thats normal 4000miles the rear was reshimned.5000miles roof was repainted.8500miles airfilter gauge fell off 10000miles reflashed computer.Then no power,noisy,no fuel milage.I should say noisey like a cummins Took it back(we can't find anything wrong with it) Ran fine 15000miles keeps blowing water out. Took it back, the put a new cap on the overflow(that will fix it)and a sticker with a high/low mark on the overflow tank.Now at this point I know it's head gaskets but ford dosent. I decide to not put water in when it gets low,run it till it blows. So 25000miles im towing my racecar and its blowing water out, down the side of my truck and all over the front of my inclosed trailer. Now ford will fix it. Took it in and they said I ran it hot its gona take head gaskets 3 and 1 half weeks later yeah i said 3, I finally got my truck back. I now have 30850miles on it and seems to be ok. Other than the egr. Please tell me I'm not the only one

you are not the only one. someone i work with bought a brand new 6er back in June of 04. had SSSSSOOOOO many probs with it, he got the state of Cali to declare it a lemon. took it back to Ford and got his money back. he is now a Dodge Diesel owner. he said the other day he will never buy a new Ford again cuz of how they treated him.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
