    Another bit to chew on :

    "International Truck and Engine Corp. already supplies Ford with the 6.0-liter PowerStroke engine used in the F-series Super Duty trucks, but that engine has encountered major quality problems.

    This year, Ford repurchased at least 500 trucks suffering from severe engine malfunctions caused by the fuel injection system. Ford also encountered problems with the turbocharger and engine computer.

    The new PowerStroke's flawed launch is the major reason for bad blood between Ford and International Truck.

    Last year, Ford abruptly canceled plans to buy International Truck's 4.5-liter diesel V-6 for the new F-150. International Truck swallowed a $170 million charge to cover the cost of engine development and factory tooling.

    The company later received compensation from Ford. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

    Probably bandaged together and sold at auction.

    I was told that they are sold with a title simialr to a "salvage title" with no warranty.

    As far as arbitration like was mentioned above, Ford opted not to go to arbitration in our case, but that would have been the next step.

    Good luck to everyone.

    I have a 2003 Excursion (same as HavasuCig's) with the new 6.0 and it SUCKS!! My last truck with the 7.3 liter was so much better. If Ford doesn't unf*ck these problems asap, they are going to lose (already have) even more customers.
    Are you listening FORD?????? Wake the hell up!!!!
