Pros: Need truck for work, it has been very dependable.
Cons: The wide turning radius and you need a big parking space.
Advice: I have the V-10 engine, I think that is the way to go. I'm not sure about diesels.Best truck I ever had. Always bought GM, my first Ford Truck. After all the repairs on my 1997 Tahoe and the poor customer response, no more General Motors. I have a 2000 Mustang with 94,000 miles, no repairs. 2002 Ford Truck with 48,000 miles, no repairs. Can't say that about anything from GM. Before Tahoe had 80,000 miles replaced transmission, transfer case seals, fuel pump, three batteries, water pump and fuel injectors. Tahoes should come with a pair a tennis shoes because you will be walking.
Cons: Diesel went up to equal premium gas after I bought it.
Advice: You will not be sorryRides like it was machined from a solid block of oil. I bought it to tow my 27' boat and have been impressed. If I kick it in 4WD, I think I could tow it up a tree.
Pros: The interior fit and finish/comfort.
Cons: Incredibly difficult to park in the city. Wish the truck had front bumber sensors along with the back!
Advice: Dodge has the best motor on the market (Cummins), but the rest of the truck is less than desirable!Purchased this vehicle last month and have close to 900 miles on it and love it! Have the Powerstroke Diesel in the King Ranch addition and believe that the performance and comfort of the truck is above the GM and Dodge offerings. The interior is a step above in quality feel and appearance and enjoy the amenities the truck offers. Researched the big three trucks for months and test drove them all numerous times and I am confident that I made the right investment. Absolutely no problems within my first month of ownership and would definetely recommend the truck to others.
Pros: Suprisingly excellent ride
Cons: Parking - they make parking spaces too small, sometimes I take up two
Advice: Buy itA very solid, well built truck. After 2 years, 36,000 miles, and heavy use, there's not a rattle to be heard. The truck is a pleasure to drive on a long trip and great off road also. This truck has performed equally well in Death Valley in the summer and Colorado in the winter. I went with the V-10 and will consider the diesel next time. This is my second F-250. The first one lasted 20 years and I expect this one will too.
Pros: The solid way it feels on the road.
Cons: Haven't found it yet
Advice: Shop around, If you tow a trailer GET THE POWERSTROKE DIESEL!!!!!Powerstroke diesel is the only way to go. AWESOME!!!!! And for a few bucks more you can make these things really come to life. Not many gas motors going to keep up with this one.
