Soon to be a New Ford Owner

I finally had it with my Dodge 6.7L truck. It is in the shop again. First trip cost warranty $13K to fix. They replace everything under the hood except for the engine. 2000 miles later, it is in the shop again. This time, the tranny is leaking and slipping, the third turbo went south, and it still is not going into regen mode. The minute I get it out, I am going to take it to the Ford Dealer and probably trade it it for a new Ford 6.7L If not, I will sell it on the Dodge forum. The problems, if any, that ford has does not compare to the problems that Dodge is having with their trucks. By the way, my truck only has 28500 miles on it. It is still new.

The Ford 6.7 is a sweet motor. I test drove the crap out of it before I bought my 2010. The money difference and desire to do the delete pushed me to the 2010, but I'll always be a little jealous of the guys who have the $$ to spring for the 2011.

Seems that most problems with these diesels are EPA related.

Glad I solved that problem .

I cant complain about my 6.7 cummins. It was a good truck to me but I still traded it for the 2011 ford and still have no regrets. Very happy with the new ford so far.

I got a 2011 6.7 DRW 4x4 crew for work. Impressive power!! Pulled from a side street to beat some traffic on a left turn, I gave it some throttle and the truck jumped across the street and spin around on me like I hit ice. It was quite a surprise, the chev DRW (gas) is a DOG compared to this vehicle. Can't wait to put the 10k lb boat on it, to see how it goes.
