:hi:Just Traded in my '04 Ford 6.0L Powerstroke 4x4 crewcab w.84k mi. on it for an '08.5 Titan SE KingCab w. 70k mi.....and a 3yr/36k mi warrantee
It was an unexpected thing, you see I recently started to have some serious turbo problems with the 6.0L....upon going to the ford dealership was told I had some major engine problems...to the tune of $3650 to fix (restricted oil cooler, restricted EGR cooler, cracked Y-Pipes and turbo about to fail due to excessive heat (oil not being cooled) ...and then found out that after I fixed this mess I could expect my headstuds to go for another $4k to repair....
Pretty serious stuff considering I had always chgd my oil/filter at 3k and basically babied it - never even off roaded it.....and why was my cooling system "restricted" with 84k mikes on the truck, and the svc manual for the 6.0L diesel says to chg at 105k mi???...long story of a HUGE ford F-UP..... anyway I am over it....Ford has decieved thier customers with the 6.0L diesel motor.... here read this to get a feel for the magnatude of fords lies and deceit.....oh, and as an fyi...I have driven Ford trucks since '88 and this was my 2nd Powerstroke diesel truck from Ford
I wanted decent towing power for both my sailboat and racecar...which both are a little under 3k lbs trailer included.
Just had the dealer finish up some odds and ends, i.e. Full detail, paint touch up trans svc and coolant flush, oil chg.....
I am very Happy with it in the very short time I have had it......I hope I can expect more from Nissan quality and customer care than I ended up getting from Ford.
I'm looking forward to a lot of great miles in my (new to me...) '08 Titan.
All the best, and I look forward to hangin' out and learning from everyone,
