Disappointed with truck on hunting trip
Went from Illinois to Manitoba Canada, First issue averaged about 11 mph with a smaller decoy trailer (sucked). When I was there I got into a little soft mud tried to lock the rear diff and put in 4wd and the darn thing stopped and said "shifting in progress" and acted like it was in neutral while Im tryin to hammer it to get through the mud. The other time i was in soft mud i was already in 4wd with diff lock on but forgot to take traction control off and had no power so I just sank in the mud. The main issue was the stupid f'ing urea crap. I changed the oil and had the urea tank filled the day before I left and took an extra gallon with me, well a week later and 2500 miles later it tells me i have 800 miles to go and I was about 1200 miles away. We pull into the next fuel station and put a gallon in the tank thinkin we were good to at least get to Illinois or to a dealer when they were open (it was about 8pm). We go about 50 miles down the road and it warns 700 miles till empty so putting in a gallon of urea made no difference, by this time I am furious at the dealer for telling me I wouldnt have any problem at all. Called ford roadside assistance and they didnt even know what urea was needless to say they heard countless f bombs from me on the phone in the fact that now in 300 miles I will have a useless 65k dollar truck with 5000 miles on it and it is about 11 p.m. Called the guy who sold me the truck on his cell and told him that if it shut down then he was paying to get it towed to the nearest dealer and as soon as I got back he would be ordering me the exact same truck with a gas motor. Thanks to the gps (which i love) we were able to call all the truck stops ahead of us and finally someone had some in Wisconsin. Put about 4.5 gallons in it and we were good to go. If this urea thing shuts down somewhere and it is cold and someone gets hurt cause their truck wont start I think ford is in for it. Now that Im home the truck is averaging 16.5 mph which is about what is expected..I gotta get rid of this urea crap its drivin me nuts. Sorry for the long post but im still a little ticked off.
