    truck had problem starting at 5000 miles and now has 28000 on it the. big repairs were fuel pre reg 5000mi drive shaft at 7000mi trans at 14kmi rear at 24k and the dealer blew the motor after fixing the rear on that test driving it, after the motor the 4x4 did not work then they got that fixed and is started eating antifreez so the did an egr i think then at 27500mi is got stuck in 4x4 and now another rear at 28kmi there was other problems but thats the big stuff

    i think it was a mix of the plus i got the truck when it first came out and no one knew how to work on it or FIX ANYTHING so they threw parts at it and when a truck car person anything is taken apart that much and tampered with its never gonna be right. ford really droped the ball with the handling of my case and it took them for ever to step up but they did in the end.

    Reports say there is 400000 2011 superdutys on the road. how many bad one have you head about??? Iv found 5 bad reports of problems non as bad as mine. i looked at gmc even drove a dodge neither hold a chance against a ford, So with driving 30000 miles a year towing 15k 2 or 3 times a week id rather take the risk on a ford the be stuck in in a gmc or dodge that cant hold up for sure to what im gonna put it threw. AND THERE MUST BE A BUNCH OF INSANE GUYS WITH ME ON THAT BECAUSE FORD SELLS 3 TRUCKS TO EVERY 1 GMC AND DODGE SELLS TOGETHER.
