What would it take to rid yourself of your SD?

I keep reading about ford shunning warranty claims to normal operators following rules Im going to look at the 2013 dodge. I imagine dodge does this as well though. Tell me about Aisin trannys. GM still has their shaking problems, we get stuck with 10k fuel system bills.... I'm just trying to pull a boat ppl, whats the best solution? Own a dodge in warranty? I guess owning a ford in warranty doesnt matter much. Anyone have a motor or fuel problem recently ford actually fixed? We have like 10 ppl on this website and supposidly 500,000 PDSs sold....

So, what would it take for you to offload that found on road dead and go somewhere else? I think Ram is probably my back up plan, but man I love this SD, just wish ford made me more comfortable.

Don't stress out....if there was fuel contamination why should ford warranty the Fuel system? I'm not saying that at times ford may deny warranty claims that are legit. However we need to remember this is the internet and people may not tell th whole story, they just tell the story that benefits them. Just drive the truck, if something breaks, I have every confidence ford will fix it, if the truck hasn't been modded.

Agreed, I came from an 02 & 06 cummins that were a great trucks. So hopefully it doesn't bite me in the butt making the switch.

I went back and forth... The main thing for me was mileage and my driving style. I do mostly city driving and after reading all the plugged dpf and emission issues on city driven dodges I switched. I wasn't going to delete and void my warranty. Plus a good friend of mine has a 12 ram, he gets on average 13-14 that includes a lot of highway mileage. I know I shouldn't buy this truck for mpg but I don't want to just throw money out the exhaust pipe for no reason. I get a solid 16.1 around town, 18.5 running 69-74 into a headwind, and 17.4 running 79 across i70 for 300 miles. I believe its a 19.5 mpg truckmif i would set the cruise at 65. I'm totally happy with the truck, granted it was 3500 more than a similar, not identical ram. That would pay for fuel..... This truck also gave me more payload and towing capacity out of a 2500/250. I still should have went with the 350

Plus, I may be in the minority....I love the look of the fords with 20in wheels! I looked at the Denali's as well.

I think you are right about mileage, 13-14 average stinks. I had a tundra before this and having a truck with this much capability and get this good range is awsome. I sometimes wish I got the dually.

Just got a new 2012 F350 and came from owning 3 dodges currently and having 2 others in the past, wouldnt even look at a dodge until they beef up their transmission. Maybe the Aisin will do it for them but until then im more than happy with the ford. Looked at the gm pickups but just thought they were so blah and boring compared to the new rams and fords.

The new 2013s the gap bwtween GM/Ford+dodge is even worse. GM still looks like its from 2004 while the other two companies are improving/updating. I had a jeep and thats what steered me away from dodge. Tranny needed rebuilt, heater problems, brake problems. I owned toyotas and loved them ever since. Never an issue with any of them. I wanted/needed an HD truck though and well, thats why I'm here now. I have high hopes for this truck, I just would like ford to stand behind us while we take the risk for them to work out their growing pains.
