Well I guess it's the all in the way you present yourself and your post. Had you come here and ASKED these questions and not presented them as facts you would have been welcomed with open arms. Do a test would you, copy everything you posted here except change it to read F-250 Powerstroke and post it at a Ford Powerstroke Forum then let us know how they react could you.This forum is obviously fairly immature. As is the case more often than not, folks jump right to conclusions and jump on the OP thinking there is trolling going on and bashing of a beloved brand and vehicle.
Nope, not the intent. The intent was to hopefully hear opinions of the information I was passed in hopes that the overwhelming response would be that the info was crap and not substantiated. Instead, I get bashed. Lol
As to the comment about going back to ford... Well, I unlike many and apparently many of you, I really don't give a crap about any particular brand. However, I have been happy and proud to once again have pride in American car companies.
Just FYI, I used to be a proud owner of a 2005 Chrysler SRT6 crossfire and was an advocate when nobody wanted anything to do with Chrysler. I curreny own a '13 300S, a '13 Explorer, a 1996 F150, and a '65 Chevelle with a 2008 Corvette engine. So, I have all three brands covered thank you.
Disgruntled that I can't get the truck I want? Not really; disappointed? A little bit. Have I cancelled my order due to the red flags and info? Nope. Still want it...
For the warranty stuff, great, I actually learned something. Didn't know that. Makes sense. Diesels are more expensive to maintain indeed. Good to know there are extended warranties available though even for the diesel.
Thought this would be a good exchange of info about what others have heard, thought, experienced, but that failed. Guess its only roses and happy sunsets around here that people want to discuss... Cheers
