6.7L nothing but problems

My boss has a 2011 F250 King Ranch. I've never liked Ford, but this truck is pretty bad ***. About a month ago, my not liking Ford feelings got even stronger. The truck is at 25,xxx miles and has been sitting in the dealer for more than a month now. He's had it for a couple months now, at 1,000 miles they had to replace the fuel pump because it was making some really weird sounds. We noticed that it was saying water in fuel too often, was using too much DEF and was shifting really hard. A little more than a month ago, we we're pulling up to a light and the truck shook like it had a misfire and shut off. He tried starting it and it would just crank. we drained the water, took off the batteries and still nothing. We had it towed to the dealer. A couple days later, they advised that they took a fuel sample and it smelled like alcohol. They sent the sample to be analyzed and said it was OK and that Ford had authorized to have the fuel pump replaced, again, clean the fuel lines and replace injectors, which needed the cab to be lifted. Today I get a call from the dealer, he advised me that when they started taking things apart to replace them, they noticed the fuel water separator, lines, injectors, manifold were all rusted. He said when parts are rusted like that, FORD doesn't cover anything and the bill would be out of pocket (right around $12,000). Let's say my boss is NOT HAPPY after paying a little more than $65,000 for this truck. The dealer is going to be getting a nice call from a lawyer very soon. Sorry for making this so long, but I can't believe FORD will not stand behind it's product. The truck has had an oil change with fuel filters every 3,000 miles, as soon as it says fuel in water, its drained. This is his truck.

Does this truck have a bullydog tuner or just a stupidly huge bullydog emblem on the passenger fender for the hell of it?

According to the dealer it's from too much water in the diesel. What my boss is pissed at is that FORD doesn't stand by it's product. If the sensor on the separator went bad and wasn't reading the water in fuel level correctly it should have given a code or something. The truck has had diesel from gas stations like any other truck in it since the day it got delivered. Never mistreated, towed light trailers every once in a while. Diesels are supposed to be the toughest things out there, at 25,xxx miles, it shouldn't need a $12,xxx repair, specially since the Scorpion engine was tested so much. I was looking around the site and see people all sorts of problems with them. I understand it's a first year truck on the road, but if it's been tested so much, it should be close to bullet proof. Unless they had all sorts of failures while testing them and never fixed any of the problems.

I'm probably going to swing by the dealer tomorrow and take some pics of the rusted parts.
