OP, how did they handle swapping the old truck for the new? Glad you got a satisfactory resolution from Ford. The 6.2 is a great gas engine!!!

If history repeats itself then warranty may not matter as Ford will claim contaminated fuel. I sure hope not, not with those miles. OP, I sincerely hope the dealer and Ford take care of you. Best of luck!


What REALLY sucks is if they deny then it's a claim against your auto policy!

I have never heard of auto insurance policies that cover breakdown/repairs. I have heard of auto policies that cover accidents, wrecks, trees falling, etc. But never one that covers mechanical failures. I assume they cost a LOT more than standard full coverage.


GEICO offers a Mechanical Breakdown rider for about $30 per 6 months period. It has a $250 deductable and is bumper-to-bumper. Car dealers always gripe with I refuse their extended warranty and explain GEICO's policy. I've had this insurance for the last 15 or so years. No problems the several times I've used it, once a new $1700 transmission - cost me $250.

You got my curiosity up, So I went and looked.
NEW TRUCK

By the time you add sales tax, license, (in Smohomish County). dealer prep. extend warrantee, you are pushing 70k out the door.

only to blow up in under 10k miles.

Sales tax would be $5411.


Could be true, my experience in shopping around was the Ford diesels were about 10 grand more than a comparable equipped Cummins



NEW DODGE


I got my Big Horn Cummins for about 5 grand less than the link you posted, if that makes any difference. More options on my model too.

I recently bought a 2018 Chevy Duramax and it went into limp mode with 800 miles on it. Bad injector and glow plug on #7 cylinder. Still not running right, keeps stalling but check engine light doesn’t come on. 1500 miles on it and I am afraid to take it on a road trip, Time will tell I guess.

My 2012 Ford 6.7 diesel has been perfect after 83K mi. except for one free recall fix and one buzz noise fixed free under warranty. People with good trucks never post, do they. Amazing how many Ford haters one can round up with one post. OP should absolutely get a fuel sample and go back on the last station if there is a problem, and comprehensive insurance if not. Yes, this is very annoying and inconvenient--hope OP gets a fix with minimal hassle.


Mines been near perfect with 136k miles.

Not surprised Ford covered the repair under warranty, but not surprised of the Ford haters that showed up in numbers.

Having said that my cousin has replaced several fuel systems in Ram trucks from water contamination last year alone so fuel contamination is real problem.

OP,
I would take that repaired truck and drive it +300k miles with no sweat.

I have the Geico MBI as well. It was 16.00 for 6 months when I got my 2011 Duramax. The Ford Powerstrokes were being charged 251.00!!
Insurance companies are VERY good at pricing risk. There obviously is a large disparity in Geicos idea of the risk of having to pay a claim between the Fords and GMs.
