factory buy back

I just wanted to know if anyone has ever looked into buying a factory buyback truck, or has bought one? Im looking at buying a 2005 F-250 fx4 crew with leather, it has 19,982 miles, Asking price is $21,995.The reason its a buy back is b/c of a PCM failure, Its at a ford dealer here in socal and the dealer bought it from ford, as matter of fact they buy and sell alot of factory buy backs. They told me its covered by a 5 year 100k mile powertrain war. and a 2 year 100k bumper to bumper by ford. Now for the ugly, its a Factory buy back there for its a lemon law vehicle. I know that would turn anyone away but I just wanted some input to see what u guys think.

thanks, are_mud

Check it out good, doubt that just a pcm failure would of been cause for a buyback. Usually has to be a pretty bad scenario for a buyback to occur.

this is some of info i found on the recall/repurchase

Just some info i found online,

So many 6.0 L Power Stroke engines were proven to be unreliable, and may have cost Ford hundreds of millions of dollars in warranty repairs and leading to a recall and repurchase of at least 500 trucks. The major problem with the Navistar diesel engines is damage resulting from aftermarket modifications to the engine or its operating computer. There were initial quality challenges which Ford and Navistar have rectified. The reliability of the later 6.0L engines, after the dealership technicians were fully trained on the product, has been very good. Some early problems were disastrous, requiring total engine replacement. There were also minor problems resulting from the unreliable variable-vane turbocharger solenoid, EGR valve carbon deposit clogging/sticking, defective Exhaust Pressure (EP) sensor/connector, numerous PCM (Powetrain Control Module) recalibrations, fuel injector harness chafing/crushing and other minor driveability and QC issues. As with competitive engine products offered by GM and Dodge, the 6.0L suffered from an inability to conform to the new Federal diesel emissions standards which took effect on January 1, 2007. There were many running changes to the engine and in the 2006 year model the 6.0 had the lowest rate of warranty claims across the board for Ford Motor Company when compared to all of Ford's gas and diesel engines.

Get the VIN and try and get the info on why the truck was a buy-back before you purchase it. Take some pics of it with your almighty iPhone too. Then post it all here.
