Smile New Member Intro

Hi there, new to the forum and new to the POWERSTROKE.

My name is Neal, have been married to Kam for 14 years and have 4 kids aged 12 to 2. Family is into dirt-biking and are looking to expand into camping and boating and believe the F250 is the way to go.

We picked up a black/silver 2008 F250 Lariat 4x4 PSD with bench seat yesterday and just can't get over this monster. The boys think it is a MONSTER TRUCK!

I do have two questions:
1) I picked up the truck at 9pm last night and today noticed a dimple/dent in the front of the hood and scratches in the chrome 'S' of SUPER and am now wondering if someone dropped a wrench on it during PDI or I just missed it when inspecting it before it went to PDI. Do I follow up with the dealer or suck it up? It is a truck afterall and will get dents and scratches.
2) After parking today the interior and rear lights will not go off. I did an internet search and found some info on the door sensor but have no idea where it is or what to do. I'll ask the dealer to relube the door locks but would like to know if there is a quick fix.

Anyway, it's been a dream to own an F250 PSD and now I can't believe I have one. Here's hoping for many great years together and I look forward to sharing our experiences with the people here.

Cheers,
Neal

Thanks 19558077 & doubledrop.

Milage so far: I managed to get it up to 13 mpg on the way home from the dealer. Today it dropped to 11.8 mpg with all the slow speed town driving.

BTW, I manged to find a thread and pic concerning interior lights staying on:

Welcome to the org bud.

If it were me, I would probably go to the dealer and just talk to them. If they take care of it free, awesome, if they don't, well that sucks. Either way, you don't have much to lose. Hopefully they will be pretty cool about it and just take care of it for you.

When you say lights, you talkin about the dome lights staying on?
