May be putting my truck up for sale soon...

So, I went to the grocery store on Saturday, on the way... decided the tree my truck was parked under spew too much crap on my truck. So, I took it to the car wash to rinse it off. Got her clean and went to grocery store as planned. Went for one or two things. Ended up going grocery shopping. Came home and parked my truck again. I always back in the parking space to make for an easy get away... Well, I wasn't happy with my angle so I pulled forward to re-adjust the angle... I can no longer turn to the left. I can go streight or right. but, not left. WTF OVER?

This is the 4th time my 08 F350 has been in the shop. I'm getting a little peeved here. I've NEVER had this many problems with any of my previous Fords.

Make matters worse... I'm at 37,450 miles. Out of warranty. Even though my previous problems were with my steering.

They replaced/rebuilt my gearbox and did a front end alignment. Cost me $920.00.

Told them thank GOD it didn't happen while I was driving down the freeway with a full load.

Your gear box should've been covered under the "powertrain" warranty which is usually 5 years 60,000 miles. I would check back with the dealer in regards to this. Also, look for any TSB's.
