I have an 08 f350 powerstroke with only 39k on it and my radiator is cracked too. I can see that several of you have been able to get ford to pay for it. I was wondering if you can tell me the names of some of these dealerships.

Was the valve replaced? they replaced my valve under warranty, then the radiator cracked, they made me pay for it. I wrote a very detailed letter, started and the Service Manager and worked my way up to the GM. Even went thru Sales because I had bought 7 vehicles from this dealership. The GM took my case up with Ford, I understand the dealership not covering everything but at the same time I feel they knew because of the faulty valve under recall and saying if not replaced would crack the radiator. Ford Motor wrote me a check back. Play the political roll and keep following up, mine took about 2 days before the GM Called saying Ford would cover it.

I ordered two Ford Super Duty's, an '08 F450 and an '08 F350 for my company. They were loaded to the hilt whereas I paid close to 120K for both. Since purchasing, I have gone through 5 radiators between the two and am still having issues with the current ones. Just a few month's ago, my F350's motor blew while driving on the highway. It had 130k miles on it, so no warranty. When I took it to the dealer, Earnhardt Ford (Arizona), they told me that there was fuel in the oil and two cylinders were toast. Needs new motor (18K). They said that the truck must not have been cared for properly even though we have change the oil every 3K miles from the beginning. I thought Ford might help me since I bought 2 more trucks that year totaling 4. Thought wrong! I have owned Ford vehicles my whole life, since a 1968 Shelby GT500KR Mustang and will never even look at a Ford anything again. I am trying to dump the F450 as soon as I can for a Dodge or Chevy. Does anyone know of any class action lawsuit levied against Ford for this travesty of design, so I can join it? I had the F350 sold at auction for 14K. Great investment for two years!

I would try and lemon law the thing!!! I have a buddy who had to do that with 2 of his trucks.

I have just turned over 100k on my '08 F250 with no real problems yet. I read all these comments from time to time and it worries me. I did a DPF delete with a 4" exhaust and put a cold air intake on it. Other than that I change the oil every 10k and add a quart of Lucas sythetic oil stabilizer. I also use Deisel Kleen cetane booster regularly and run the crap out of it most of the time. I average 18 to 19mpg, 14 to 15mpg pulling a 5000lb trailer.
If you look at how many are on the road compared to the amount of complaints, I would say most people got a good truck. I know I did!!!
#390 of 403 THIS TRUCK IS JUNK
Apr 14, 2011 (11:23 am)
This truck is all looks and no performance. They must have been on drugs when designing this piece of crap. I bought 2 2008 F-450's for the purpose of pulling a goose neck aluminum horse trailer. Within 3 months of owning both had to have the radiators replaced. They get horrible gas mileage. One truck says 6.8 miles per gallon and the other says 9.1.
Wonder why the same truck has such a big difference. Ford will not even attempt to try and help with the big discrepency in mileage difference. By the 1st year anniversary I have been stranded 2 times on the side of the road again needing radiators replaced in both trucks. My tow bill was $800.00 each time since it was on a turnpike. So now I am up to 4 radiators in a year. In the second year I had a hose blow off causing the truck to over heat leaving me again stranded. Got that fixed and in 3 weeks the radiator cracked again and had to be replaced. After all that, if that isnt enough I lost power and had to have EGR sensor replaced. My business slowed up going into 2010 so they were not getting used very much except small local trips. I have 146,000 on the one truck and 101,000 on the other. The truck with 101K is now in the shop because it has no power and I am having to replace the fuel pump which is costing me $3500. They are telling me the whole cab has to be removed in order to replace fuel pump. Every one of these trucks should be recalled and consumers should get a full refund. I spend $1800.00 a month in payments and cant even get through 6 months without a major repair. Luckily the radiators were under warranty. If this track record continues through 2011 now that I am out of warranty I will go out of business. I will not be able to afford these major repairs over and over again and shouldnt have too. Ford is horrible and they will only warranty the repairs for 1 year or 12,000 miles. I want out and I will never buy another Ford again as long as I live.
