6.7 Problems / Issues

I have been looking at getting into a new truck eventually and have been reading about the 6.7 problems and issues, they seem to be related to the 2011 first year production models from what I see so far and the F450 and up models also. I would like to know if anyone is having issues with the 2012 models. I see that the F250-350 seem to be the better trucks also. I think that by now Ford has the issues worked out as this new engine has been out for some time now. I just wanted to ask as I am looking at a new truck and want to be sure. I would go with a F250 and leave it stock for some time because of warranty work/issues and then delete it later on.

Guess it really depends on who you talk to. There's been a few turbo failures, which may or may not be a turbo design issue. Some people will let you know that the transmissions have issues in their trucks. Some people will tell you the motors have weak rods and will fail on all of our trucks. Then there's the vast majority that will tell you they like or love the truck. A good portion of the majority do not have 100k plus on the truck, however. If you're in the market for a solid truck with great creature comforts and the ability to work and tow with anything out there, chances are good that you'll be happy with the Ford.

29k miles and perfect!
I wouldn't worry about the rods, it's high HP tuners that will see problems. I'm sure the ford engineers buit them to support the stock motor.

Stock trucks are the most realiable!
Modded trucks probably feel good and dandy but the reliability drops 10 fold!

I`m in the same position as the OP. From reading on several different forums these trucks SEEM to have quite a few issues (more than normal). I sold my 08 450 6.4 in 09 because of the rod issues those motors had, two friends had rod failures so i was nervous about driving that truck. during the last three years i have owned three Raptors, 5.4, 6.2 Xtra cab and a 6.2 crew cab, great trucks but very low payload and towing capabilities so i`m looking to get back into a SD diesel, just really gun shy.

Another way to look at it is how many I love my truck treads do you see?
Most people only start threads when there is an issue.

2012 F350 Here in Salt Lake. 5000 miles and truck has a shudder and cuts out after regen. Engine makes a terrible noise also. Ford is aware of the problem and is supposedly working on a fix. The answer right now is to put cetane in when filling up. Going back in the morning to pick up my truck after the 5th time in. Anybody know why cetane would help these issues?

I am also interested in this. I am thinking about coming over from the 6.0 to the 6.7. I totaled my 6.0 and cant seem to find another 6.0 to fit me, so I am seriously considering the 6.7. I am not going to do anything to it as long as it is under warranty. After warranty I will probably tune and delete it, but no bigger injectors or turbos.
