Sorry to hear that. The wife wants to trade in her 2000 F350 on a 2009 model later this year.

Is the 09 the new body style? I don't like the new Ford or Chevy, might as well get the Dodge at least its got a good motor.

What you can buy now is called the Chevy 2500HD "classic", its the old body style and much nicer than the new one.

I think they quit doing that in 07, but there my still be a few new ones around.

My Ford truck has been recalled for the infamous cruise control spontaneous combustion issue. Every time I respond to the recall notice the dealer states they do not have the part to fix it. This has been going on for years.

On a regular basis I check for the symptoms and wait. Other than that my truck has been faultless.
