Need Help :(

I bought a 2004 F-250 Harley-Davidson 6.0L this month and when looked at the coolant resevoir today it had oil in it! I then almost had a heart attack when I asked a service advisor for a report on all warranty work that has been done to the truck... 3 sets of headgaskets!!! May 06, Dec 06, and Dec 07!!! None of the parts list showed the head bolts or heads being replaced but the last time it appears that they sent the heads out for machine work... Not completely sure though. The truck only has 74,500 miles on it. I am going to the dealer to have a coolant flush in the morning and then I am supposed to drive it and keep and eye on it... I am trying to figure out who the Ford Rep for my area is and if anyone has any insight to my situation. Sorry for the long post but this is a stressful situation for me and the 4 dealers I went to today didn't help.

Its orange though... On a more serious note, what I have read about the Texas Lemon Law excludes me for the mileage and it being a used truck.

i filed and won a lemon law case on my 04 F-150. tranny issues. PA lemon law must be different because if a vehicle has the same major issue 3 times and as long as it starts within the first 10,000 miles of the truck being new its a lemon. just contact a lemon law lawyer and explain your situation. atleast you can do is see if you can somehow get a refund of your money, it is possible

Yup, I would honestly like to give Ford a chance to make right (will probably be the day after hell freezes over) But if not then I will be seeing a lawyer

you can give them a chance like i tried, and they may do the right thing, or they may pull you around by giving you promises of its all goin to be allright. not sayin they wont, but do not settle for anything less than completely fixed and the way it should be.
