just brought in the truck for a first oil change I also complained about sloppy steering. seems the front end was out of allingnment could have been like that from day one from the factory just goes to show that the information you read on this site can helpout. when in dought don;t be afraid to complain to the dealer if it is on record they have to deal with the problem
I am happy with ford customer service they fixed the problem
It's great that they fixed it up for you - I once complained about the alignment in my '96 t-bird after only a few hundred miles, and got the old "It's perfect from the factory" line. Well, at 1000 miles, I found the right front wheel bearing to be loose. Then, they tell me they "tightened" it - it's a unitized non-serviceable bearing. I laughed and said "You can't tighten it" and walked out - a week later, they changed it.
I complained loudly about the entire experience. Month or two later, the service manager was gone, and the new one replaced almost all the service writers. Nepotism at it's best, apparently.

I picked the truck up all nice and cleaned up took it down the highway everything went straight at 80MPH
When I purchaced the truck they had what they call a gas and go promotion for $2200 they servce all my oil changes belts shocks brakes and fluids even wipers For 6 years or 160,000 km That includes trani and transfer case rear end servce at 100,000 km I think i made a good choice all I have to do is put gas in it
Although the price here for gas is $1.40 per liter ouch.
Well so far I am very satisfied with the F-250
Glad the dealer took care of you. Mine wanted nothing to do with the video I had and took it on a 1 mile test drive and said it was fine. The stock steering stabilizer is pretty much garbage. A nice aftermarket one will get rid of alot of the loosey goosey feeling...
This video was taken early on in my trucks life with the stock stabilizer. I never did take a video after I installed the 7100 stabilizer, but it was a huge improvement.
