High Pressure Fuel Pump Failure

I have been driving versions of the F-350 for 25 years with mostly good results. DO NOT BUY THE F-350 WITH THE 6.7 ENGINE!!! There is a very good chance that the high pressure fuel pump will fail with catastrophic results. More importantly, if this happens, FORD WILL NOT HONOR THE WARRANTY!!!
Ford will either blame contaminated fuel or improper maintenance(not changing fuel filters every 12000 miles, for instance). One of our 2012 trucks(55000 miles) stalled on the side of the road for no apparent reason. Two weeks later, after blaming contaminated fuel(wasn't), then "improper maintenance", Ford wants $10000 to replace entire fuel system, plus injectors. I know from the blogospere that this is a systemic engineering problem with this engine. Please respond if you have had similar problems. FORD IS NOT STANDING BEHIND A FAULTY PRODUCT.

Although obviously trying to bankrupt ford with bad publicity. Good luck with that btw.
I will say. Our 450 at work did same thing. Hpfp went kaput. That was a $5k repair. They wouldn't honor warranty on it either, last I heard anyway. Fixed now though. I hardly ever drive it so wasn't me .

I have actually been an even bigger Ford fan since they passed on the bailout but this is bs.

Just curious what you will go buy if not a Ford? Go on the Cummins and Duramax forums and you'll see their issues...and you can find HPFP failures there too...and warranties being denied. I know that all sucks....but it's also NOT COMMON. Since we've decided to elect people to save our planet, we are getting "advanced" technology on these trucks. Sensors fail. Even though it's a small percentage....there are lots of them being used. Tolerances are getting tighter. Pressures are getting higher. If you want a new vehicle, these are the realities (stock). Otherwise, you need to go find and old one and build your "end of world" truck.
