2008 king ranch f350 starts to blow white smoke after dealer recall

so i get this recall letter from ford and bring the truck in and pick it up 8 hrs later. no details on paper work on what was done. that was with 15000 miles.no problems up to that point with the truck.i hve 16623 miles and the dam truck went to hell in a hand basket.the turbo wont kick in in the morning for two blocks.it blows a white smoke cloud out from time to time and shifts like crap now.it is in the shop now.the dealer said that there was no problems and drove just fine. i told them i will not pick it up till they fix it. i payed 60 plus thousand for it and with only 16623 mile i am not happy.

That's BS! I would refuse to pick up the truck until it is returned in the same working condition that it was turned in with.

I had a similar problem with my work truck 08 Gmc Sierra 2500 diesel, went into the dealer to change out a starter. When I got it back my 4 wheel drive wasn't working, took it back and they denied messing with anything. After some "choice" words with the lead tech and manager had my truck fixed same day got washed and detailed as well to!
