Are the 6.0 diesels safe to drive????

I have had the same problems with my 05 F350 super duty 6.0 in the high pressure injector oil system, pump, valve and line coupler. I love this truck but it is very stressful to drive it. Will it run today or not? Will I be stranded some place or get run into when is stops? Will I came home tonight or be in an emergency room somewhere? Will Ford Get me for another $2500.00? I,m sure this has happened to a lot of owners and they wonder the same thing. I wonder how many injury accidents have been caused by these failures. These trucks are unsafe to drive and Ford needs to engineer a fix and recall them. I contacted the National Transportation Safety Board and there have been very few complaints filed. 17 total, 18 with mine. NTSB forces auto makers into safety recalls, so if anything is to be done to force Ford into a fix and recall, complaints have to be made. Go to ntsb.gov and file on line or call the toll free number and file your complaint. IT IS FREE. Maybe we can get something done and force Ford to make our beloved trucks and vans dependable and safe.
