Tomorrow we're picking up a 2012 6.7 dually lariat (28k miles) to replace our 08 6.4 that's in the shop again with no idea what's wrong or when it will return. The one we're getting just had the radiator replaced, it's either a 6/11 or a 1/12 build date as he ordered the truck.
I feel all the pains of the posts here as you can't imagine what we've been through with the 08. If there's a post of a problem, I've had it!
Ford SHOULD NOT recall the radiators (any of them), just be a hero and say "we'll take care of it". By doing this there supplier should (would) step up and cover the costs I would think. Replacing every one would be a huge expense and open a can of worms for suits and lemon law stuff. The truck we're getting also had an injector come out of it. It has never towed or worked so I can't see how ordering one new myself would prevent these problems, actually contrary, it's a couple of aggravations that I didn't have to deal with! The extended warranty idea is in the plans I think. By the way, the 08 is a great truck (and motor, modified), works hard, does everything, just NOT dependable!
Well, add me to the leaky radiator list!!!! 2012 F250 with 64,000 miles
I called Ford Customer Service, since I am the second owner of the pickup Ford said they would split the $1800.00 bill with me. Although the $900.00 price tag is better than the full $1800.00, Ford needs to step up to the plate and warranty all of these defective radiators. I spoke with the service tech. and he stated that the replacement will be "the updated unit". I asked the tech. if he has seen any of the updated units fail as of yet and he said "no, just have to see how it goes tho". I still think I should have just called Griffin and had a custom aluminum rad made.
Truck is currently at the dealer, they stated that they will have the truck done by the end of the day, at least I am only without the truck for a day.
Guess I've joined the rad leak club. My '11 F250 starting consistently dropping small puddles of coolant where it's parked about 2 weeks ago. I am the original owner. It began at about 50K miles. Any new developments about coverage from Ford? I'll be looking into things and post up what occurs.
