Question 2013 6.7 Should I buy one or?

I have been debating on a new truck...F-250 FX4 Lariat is what I like

But I see so many bad problems here and just wondering if it's worth it to get another diesel???
Honestly, seems as though the D'max has a lot less issues but Should I just get a 6.2 gas Ford since the v-10 is gone?

I had a problematic 2006 6.0, but luckily it was a lease and the lease company got that junk.....

So what do you all think?

If I were in the market I'd get a 2009 or 2010. They're rock solid trucks. If it has to be brand new - I'd get a Ram Dually. Hate to say it.

I love my 6.0. Yes I had to drop some change to bullet proof it but it was cheaper than a new $50K truck.

I loved my 2006 F-350 6.0L but my 2012 F-350 6.7L is such a nicer truck. The ride is better and in stock form, the 6.7L has more "git up and go" than the 6.0L did tuned. I have no issues with my 6.7L and plan to drive it for a long time.

There aren't a lot of problems. It's a sampling error of highly vocal folks who are upset about their issues. As a percentage of total owners, it is very low.

The large majority of the problems were with the early 2011 6.7's. Same as the majority of the problems were with early 2008 6.4's. Go for it.

I had similar concerns, and was thinking of waiting for Ram's 1500 diesel, but went ahead and ordered an F-250 diesel. Yes, you hear some pretty sad stories on here and elsewhere. But, realize that Ford sells a LOT of these trucks and there inevitably will be a few that have problems. Folks with problems will scream and shout about them, but the vast majority of folks with solid vehicles don't post since they're too busy driving their trucks and getting on with life.
