$17,000.00 New Engine & 3 MONTHS!!!!!!!!

So this is a new complaint (see my previous " new 6.0. $17,000). The new engine showed up after being in the shop 3 weeks. The intake manifold came warped directly from the factory!!! Now the dealer says the part is back ordered and might show up in APRIL. Filed a compalint with the Ford rep third week of Jan, now the the shop can't even get a hold of him. I've heard nothing from Ford, the original dealer, noone. So I supposed to make payments on this POS for 3 months and be happy about it??!! Yeah right. No wonder Ford is going after Navistar.

Walk into the dealership...take a voice recorder with you (or a camcorder) and ask for a new truck or a dealer-provided replacement while your are waiting for your new motor/intake. There is ZERO reason for you to be paying monthly for something that THEY goofed on. Also, talk to a lawyer...and if he will, take him with you to the dealer as well. Small scare-tactics can usually get the dealer to see the light. Go in there and kick some butt!!!

I used to be a die hard Ford fan, nothin but the oval! Due to the first two 6.0's I purchased, I went and bought a new Cummins about four months ago. I still have the '03 6.0, but am getting ready to post a thread about why it's starting to run like crap at 1900rpm. I've had too many problems with them and Ford. They should have never produced that motor, junk, junk, junk!

Too bad this isn't the Wild West. Lying Horse Traders would be SHOT without even a batting of the eye. Now the Horse Traders (Motor Companies) have droves of lawyers on their payrole and essentially steal the $$$ right out of our pockets without ANY reguard for the little guy!

I'd go in there and demand for them to fix it, and fix it fast; or get you a Brand NEW 6.0L from a 2007 truck. I'll bet they have at least one on the lot!!! Get your own blood-sucking lawyer and crucify the dealer. DO NOT take "NO" for an answer.

Yes, I was suppossed to gat a whole new engine, warranted for unlimeted milage and 2 years. A 2007 engine. But apparently, because of all the problems with this engine, and the fact FORD is sueing Navistar over this engine, I am caught in the middle. I am a long time FORD fan, it takes a lot to talk bad about them. But, god, you know what, I realize they got stuck with a bad product, but they(FORD) did it. So now I had to take a second on my house to cover this. And I cant sell this truck becuase everyone wants to know: Why a New Engine?.
