Question Powerstroke Newbie

I'm wondering if some of you would please give me your overall feeling on the PowerStrokes. I'm considering purchasing a F250 01-03' 4X4 Powerstroke and do not know that much about the vehicles. There will not be any heavy towing done, just normal driving and occasional 4X4 driving in the snow. Would you purchase one today knowing what you know? Also considering Chevy and Dodge. I know this is a question based on opion but I'll ask it anyway. Thank you for your time.

I want to welcome you to the site, You will not regret the purchase of a Ford Powerstroke. Trust me on this. I would never trade my truck for anything else except for a new powerstroke.

First of all:
Welcome to Powerstroke.org


Now.. concerning Powerstrokes and Ford trucks. I made my purchase based on what I felt was the best truck I could buy, even though the Powerstroke engine wasn't my favorite diesel available. I have since recieved over 120K miles of perfect service from both my truck and the engine.. with much better mileage than any gas, and while taking some abuse. I wouldn't trade my truck for anything.... and I plan on owning it until it falls apart.

The thing I like about my truck is the fact that I can go pick up a loaf of bread or a 15,000 lb trailer, it dosen't matter to the truck at all. It's responsive in traffic, gets reasonable mileage, but it will haul a-- when I want it to. I can jump in and go to work, or cross the country knowing that the powerstroke will do what I want, when I want it to, with a minimum of fuss and bother. thats what I like about my truck.

Gord.

Welcome to the Forum!

I love my powerstroke! I have never had anything other than a Ford either. If I could afford it I would have a few more strokers in the driveway. The 7.3 is a great engine. As for the dodge and chevys, don't waste your money on a beer can of a truck just to have a good engine. If you want a real truck that will last, get the Ford.

I will be burried in my truck!
