Failure Date: 08/17/2012

Was driving on a heavy traffic highway, in the middle lane, and truck just quit running. This is unjustifiable!! over $5000. 00 in repairs to get to get this truck to run! why hasn't Ford issued a recall on this notorious problem on these diesel engines?! I will continue to pursue a class act lawsuit over this, I do believe there are enough Ford owners very unhappy regarding these continuing issues.

I had a 05 Ford super duty 6. 0 liter diesel that had 3 new turbo's put on due to skoring. Ford replaced all 3. When turbo's go out you loose power. I have a 06 super duty that has 26828 miles. The warranty just went out 6/16/11. Ford had to put on another turbo because it was skored. Ford did pay $750 and I had to pay $1142. I was going down highway and lost power and had to limp home pulling a 5th wheel camper. I have read where Ford has had a lot of problems with the 6. 0 liter diesel engine. I am upset that Ford that Ford did not cover this problem fully because of all problems they have had with the engine. The property damage below was just to the turbo itself. I am wondering if you as an agency have had other complaints like this and to see if their are any recalls or are going to be any recalls on this problem. The engine only had 26828 miles on it and I do not drive it every day because I have a department vehicle. To drive to work because I am on call 24/7. I voiced my concern to Ford and now I am voicing my concern to this agency,.
