Great work vehicle that has been dependable
Transmission failed at 85,000 miles.
U-Joint at transmission failed at 105,000 miles.
Fuel lift pump failed twice at 78,000 miles and 155,000 miles.
Glow plugs replaced at 165,000 miles.
Water pump replaced at 174,500 miles.
Shocks replaced at 100,000 and 185,000 miles.
Transmission is weakest part of the vehicle. Torque converter is also part of the problem.
Plenty of towing power. This was first year for PowerStroke engine so I expected some problems, but they have been minimal considering the mileage I've put on vehicle.
Will probably get another truck like this in a year or so because I'll be tired of driving same truck for so long (10 years), not for any other reasons.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
