Get a 100,000 mile warranty. Diesels are expensive to repair.

Powerstroke Engine

5 years/100,000 miles

Models available include: Excursion; F-Series and E-Series (models over 8,500 lbs. GVWR)

The New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers certain direct injection diesel engine components against defects in factory-supplied materials or workmanship for five years after the warranty start date or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. After the end of the Bumper to Bumper Coverage period (three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first), you must pay a $100 deductible for each repair visit.

Ford Motor Company or Ford Motor Vehicle Assurance Company covers these components: cylinder block, heads and all internal parts, intake and exhaust manifolds, timing gear, harmonic balancer, valve covers, oil pan and pump, water pump, fuel system (excluding fuel lines and fuel tank), high pressure lines, gaskets and seals, glow plugs, turbocharger, powertrain control module, electronic driver unit, injectors, injection pressure sensor, high pressure oil regulator, exhaust back pressure regulator and sensor, camshaft position sensor, accelerator switch. NOTE: Some components may also be covered by the Emissions Warranties, with no deductible.



For complete information, see your Ford Dealer or download the full Warranty below.

I got a price off the net for about 1800$ less that what was quoted. I think I can get it at that, at least. It just sucks that I have to have an SUV and GM isnt putting out the Duramax Suburban until 07 at the earliest now

I am going to get this I think, then if and when I get a bigger boat I will be ready

Does anyone have the 6 litre Diesel? Sounds like it is a great motor. It pushed that Excursion along great.
I will be putting a 2 inch lift and 33's on it with some 18 to 20" rims, a center brush bar etc etc...

Sorry I missed this thread... I have been snow skiiing in Vermont all weekend. Jeff, thanks for the referral. Masher44, that does seem like a good price. What color are you looking for? I have a white/ tan, mineral grey limited and solid black that I drove for a demo. I will give you a great deal on any of them if you are interested. Call me tomarrow. 910-330-1911
Thanks,
Mat

GM is going to put a diesel in the 'Burban?? That is good news if they do. The news of '05 being the last year for the Excursion scared me a little. I wanted to wait a few years but didn't want to miss put on the Diesel SUV, so I was considering an Excursion later this year. So will I have other options in a few years??

I dunno why GM still has not put the duramax in the suburban. It sure seems like they would sell a bunch of them.
