Question 3rd turbo

F350 c/c with utility bed 14000 pounds gets driven 5 days a week normal usage. What is going on with these turbos this is the third one in 36000 miles
has ford addressed these turbo problems? I'M just concern for the future and what I'm gonna have to deal with. Its down time for my business every time this happens.I don't know just trying to make sense of the situation.

Turbos suck no doubt, my 3rd one is about to blow. I'm hoping SPE will release a new turbo in November.

I'm no lawyer but I thought after something fails 3 times it's considered a lemon and you would get a new vehicle. Check on that.

Hope you have found some satisfaction and can share with the rest of us, Mine is back in the shop now on its 3rd turbo failure. 1st at 34K, 2nd at 50K, and now at 77K.
Mine is Cab/Chassis without the dual stage turbo.
Dealer is trying to help communicate problems to Ford and taking some of the aggravation out of this, but it is still quite frustrating.

I am on turbo number 3. No lie on my first at 20,000 I had a mechanic look at me and guess the miles on my truck when I told him it was my turbo and he said let me guess you have 20,000 miles on it. No lie I had right at 20,000 miles on it lmao. At 29,000 a new engine and turbo. And turbo at 25,000 miles. I have owned my truck 8 months and been able to use it 3 out of 8. I have not made any money with it. Ford keeps saying will continue to fix it under warrant. They did a good faith review to buy it back and turned it down. I am getting attorneys involved at this point. I will buy another ford just not a c/c. Steer away from the Ford c/c and go with a real p/u and take the bed off.

C&C trucks are considered Medium Duty trucks and do not have the benefit of the same Lemon Laws as light duty vehicles....

My 12 550 hasnt had any problems yet and I put over 20k in the first 3 months of having it and it currently has about 32k... I think one out of our 9 11s and 12s has had this issue. Any warning signs or codes before this happens other than boost lag/leaking? All our trucks are run 16+ hrs a day 6-7 days a week. Maybe just got a good batch?
