First and foremost, DO NOT BUY A FORD WITH A 5.4L ENGINE. 5.4 l engines Ford used are notorious for blowing head gaskets like mine did at around 75, 000 miles. Also, due to the aluminum block, the spark plugs have a reported habit of either falling into the cylinders or shooting out. This engine is crap and expensive to repair.

The BEST of the BEASTS! Love my truck!

Bought my f250 RWD XL Utility Truck back in 2012 for a song and at 270,000km/168,000mi she is still going strong!!! She is a little ugly from the previous owner but the engine purrs like new, the interior is still in great shape and there is virtually no rust on the body! I have fallen in love with Ford trucks. Simply awesome and easy to fix!

We got one of the last 7.3 liter Power Stroke diesel models in the 2003 model year before Ford switched to the 6.0L. We bought the truck new, and we now have 174,000 miles on it. We have had zero powertrain issues, and the only electrical issues we have had were with the alternator failing (once), the ABS module failing (again, once), and a shift-on-the-fly 4WD issue (only once). This truck has plenty of power to do anything. I have pulled people out of ditches and up hills in the snow with this truck. Just lock the diffs and go. We have hauled our truck camper and towed our boat at the same time, and the truck handles it just fine.

Still going strong! No major issues with this truck. I replaced brakes, end links, alternator, ball joints only. Interior is quiet with no squeeks or rattles. Exterior is in great shape with no corrosion. Engine efficiency is lower than when new and acceleration is a bit slower. Power is still very strong. Feels solid, strong and safe.

I use this truck for towing my boat to the river and for taking my baseball gear to practice (sons team). I love the truck. I installed headers and exhaust but did not help mileage much. I have a 6 inch lift and 35" tires and get 9-10 mpg. This is my only grievance with this truck but I drive it seldom so not such a big deal. Great truck.

6.0l Diesel going strong.

I bought the truck used back in '05. The previous owner must have had the engine injectors and turbo changed (a common problem with the first 6.0l diesels), because this thing has been a powerhouse for me, never a problem. Now that its getting older, and has 100,000 miles, I am still pulling horse trailers, and loving the power. My only qualm is a weird rattle from the frame SOMEWHERE (can't seem to find it when not moving). I couldn't be happier with the truck, and will probably hold onto it for another 3 years, then give it to my daughter as her first vehicle (she can pull her own horse trailer then!).

Loved this truck, performance was great. Used to call it my big sports car. Never had any mechanical issues at all, how ever it chewed thru tires once a year in the front end. Power when needed and a soft relaxing ride. I would buy another in a heart beat. The V-10 drank the gas like it was going out of style in the city but on the highway it was fair.

Words cannot completely express the attributes of this truck. I was very hesitant about purchasing a what? V10 But oh my Gawd this engine is as smooth as a baby's bottom with fresh talcum powder on it. The truck is truely amazing. I love it! The ride is nice and smooth, the interior is nice and comfortable, the suspension is strong as an ox and the power to pull is overwhelming. Great truck!

I have a 7.3 diesel. It's a wonderful hauler! The truck is very stable when hauling 2 yards of dirt or our 5th wheel trailer. I haven't modified the powertrain and see no need to. The economy of the diesel is about 14 in town and 19 highway; and about 11 with the trailer. Top build quality, over 100,000 miles and no squeaks. If you need to move heavy stuff, this is the one. If you only want a truck to look cool, the half-tonners are better for that. This is a serious work truck.

I own a '03 7.3L powerstroke, at the lake the transmission went out with only 52,000 miles on it. I took it to the dealer figuring the 100,000 mi powertrain warranty would cover it, it didn't. $ 4,000 later and the new transmission (refurbished I add) has a better warranty than the origional one. I'm dissapointed when I pull 14000K worth of equipment. I've heard wonderful things but haven't experienced the greatness of the 7.3L. Soon trade for a new twin turbo F-350 or a Dodge Cummins

My truck has been in the shop 21 times, 12 loaner cars, 5 repeats from local dealership and two tow trucks. Ford customer service is just at bad. This is the worst truck ford has ever made. Buy anything but the 6.0 Ford. Should this qualify for a lemon? Ford thinks not. Be careful and look for something else.

Writing this 4 years into ownership, I have to say I can't believe Ford can build such an outstanding product. My truck has been flawless - has never needed anything other than routine maintenance... which after 4 years has totaled around $1000.00.

I like the power of the 6.0 diesel but the turbo and injector were replaced under warranty. The most annoying problem is the steering wobble. Truck wanders from side to side on the straight aways. If anyone has any ideas on a solution for this I would love to know. So far this is my 1st F250 for my business fleet and it will probably be the last.

I bought the truck 2 weeks ago. I have been a Chevy at heart (boy did I hear it) and this truck is great. The fuel tank is my only complaint as it is small (27 gallons) at 14.5 mpg around town. Plenty of torque around town and plenty of horsepower for the highway. Haven't used the 4x4 yet, but I will soon! =) Stop looking and buy it. I got the 7.3l and am glad I did.

My first crew cab, long bed, F-250. Recently had misfortune of a driver's side impact by a mini van doing better than 60. I was spun and the driver's door came into the seat. I walked away with some bruises, that's all. I'm ordering a 2006 just like the 2003. No additions or subtractions. Excellent built, excellent ride and performance.

7.3 liter diesel with 122,000 trouble free miles and it still looks and runs like new. This truck still has its original rotors and pads which aren't even half worn out! 18 mpg at the speed limit with the comfort of a car and out of this world torque. Pulled an 8,000 lb boat coast to coast without breaking a sweat. Torque converter could lockup a little tighter. 4WD is there when you need it.

Bought the truck a few weeks ago and I LOVE it! Traded in a F-150 with the 4.2L V6 for a F-250 with 5.4L V8. Maybe a little underpowered for such a big truck but it is still very fun to drive. Fuel mileage is ok but not the greatest, probably the only reason I like having the V8 instead of the V10. Go with a diesel even though it costs a lot more.

My 2004 PSD F-250 has been in repair for 50% of the time with transmission and accelerator control problems, including an accident caused by loss of accelerator control. It has had a new wiring harness, two new computers, a rebuilt transmission, new accelerator pedal, engine sleeve, and other issues, and now needs a new transmission that Ford says will take 70 days to deliver. My F-250 SD has been a nightmare to own, and Ford has been virtually non-responsive to my complaints. Their customer interface stinks, to but it nicely. I almost never tow with this truck, never take it off road, and never abuse it, yet the transmission failed three times. Once minor, twice major.

This is my third Ford truck and they just keep getting better. The only regret that I have is that I did not buy one with the V-10 or diesel, instead of the 5.4 V-8. It runs great until you tow a trailer with it. Then you have to disable the overdrive and suffer the loss of gas mileage. I get about 13 in town and 16 highway, empty, but only about 9 towing our small 21' camper. My friend's F-350 with 7.3L gets over 15mpg towing nearly anything. I feel a 2005 diesel and Tow Command in my near future ! Ford Credit, here I come again!

I hoped buying late into the series production years would help with quality but I am dissappointed. In 38,000 I have been down three times. First ignition coil would not heat up, then both batteries died, and 5,000 miles later the alternator goes bad. All would have put me on the side of the road if I were away from home. The CD player went bad too but that is relatively minor.

This is a GREAT TRUCK! I had to have the injectors replaced before 500 miles, but since then not a problem one!!! I have changed the oil, had the most recent computer upgrades installed, and driven it with a big smile on my face. It pulls my travel trailer as if I were driving unloaded. I can't find a single thing I don't like about this truck! The mileage is good and the 6.0 PSD and automatic torqshift work great together. Off road it has great clearance and even stock is competent.

I drive this truck approx. 200 miles a day 6 days a week. It has plenty of power and plenty of room. I average 21 to 24 mpg on powerstroke 6 liter diesel. I went though a Dodge Dakota quad cab, which was a good small truck,then a Chev.Silverado, which was very uncomfortable, and now this Ford is the truck of my dreams. I have no regrets in buying this truck it is excellent.

I was lucky enough to find a 2003 F-250 SD with the Powerstroke 6.0 and Torqshift tranny. This truck is just as comfortable going out on the town as it is hauling 14,000 lbs. The only downside, from a performance standpoint, is the cat converter (which first became a requirement in '03). Aside from that, I can't see any reason to purchase another heavy heavy-duty truck..... sorry GM & Dodge.

We have 2 other Fords. We upgraged from a 1986 truck to the new Diesel Powerstroke, Super Duty 4x4 short bed. It has the 6.0 liter engine and 5 speed trans. Wow what a truck. It has plenty of power and speed in reserve when you need it. The ride is great and the fuel economy gets better with each tank. It feels like a town car compared to the old truck. Looks great with color matched topper.

If u want a truck with power and a whole lot of torque this is the truck to by. this truck could tow other trucks down the street like nothing, last winter i was blocked in my drive- way by the 3-4 feet of snow the snow plows piled up, i just put it in 4x4 high floored it and it went right through it like nothing u can feel it cral right through it. the one thing i dont really like about it is when your on the highway and u just feel like speeding the truck starts to slow down at 97 mph, i guess the trucks made for power not speed. but if u want a whole lot of power this is the truck to bye.

I purchased this truck new on 06/30/2003 and within less than 200 miles the thing started to squeek and rattle something terrible. The doors rub on the weather strip making a nasty sound, the windows rattle if they are up or down. If the windows are down they clang in the doors. The entire body structure groans when you make a turn. Terrible truck for $36,000.

I have had one reflash (mfg recall) and an ecg valve replaced in 22500 miles. mileage is 17-20 mpg, depending on how I drive it. I have the 6.0L diesel and fx4 package. I love it, tons of power for towing, stable at 85 mph, and people get out of my way. Highly recommend it.

Have a 85 Ford F-250 XL work truck with 150,000 miles and it is still kicking. Bought a new 2003 Ford F-250 Crew Cab, Lariat, Centenial, with the 6.0 liter V8 Turbo Diesel. This truck is fabulous! Took it on the road Last week to Rhode Island and the ride was enjoyable even without a load. The sound system fills the cab with low distortion even music. The 6.0 Turbo Diesel has lots of power and gets good gas mileage, about 18 city and 23 highway. I have the FX4 package and can't wait to see what it can do off- road. I also have a automatic moonroof that fills the cabin with drenched sunlight. This is the most luxurious pick-up that I have ever seen.

You still can't beat Powerstroke!

This is my 3rd PSD since 99 and it is my favorite. The 6.0 motor and 5spd auto tranny is incredibly strong and solid. I consistently receive 18+ mpg with the cruise set at 80. The only way you can tell my 5000# boat is behind it is by looking in the TT mirrors. At least in the south Ford can sell these trucks w/o 0% for 60 months so they have outstanding resale compared to a Duramax or Cummins.

I have a 2003 f250 supercab longbed 4x4 offroad and the sport package. Everything on the truck is black even the interior. I love that it is all black. It rides like a cadillac and has alot of power. I love that it sits high but I feel the mirrors stick out to far are going to hit something on the side of the road. Fuel miliage could be better,but I sure dont want a bigger tank, it takes long enough to fill up now(38 gallon). Don't go to park in a small parking lot,it is hard to do with the supercab,longbed and 4x4(no turning radious). I won't trade my F250 for the world!

Unfortunately, there was no other engine option to choose from on this review site. I hace he new 6.0L Diesel and 5-speed automatic. This truck will change your mind about diesels forever. I'm amazed at the amount of incredibly smooth, quiet, and most of all powerfull this thing is. I tossed the stock shocks and put on a set of Bilsteins as well as a set of Centramatic continuous wheel balancers. I also added a white Glastite GT2000 shell and to match the body color and with the additional weight, the ride is as good as the 99 Grand Marquis which this truck replaced. The truck is simply beautiful.

I bought the crew cab because my kids were too big for the Toyota Tundra that we traded in. The truck can seat 6 comfortably, haul my 3 motorcycles in the back and still tow a travel trailer. Of course the big V10 engine helps out there. I've only had one real defiecency, a bad coil at 20k miles.

This is the 2nd F-250 Super Duty I have owned. I actually looked at GMC & Chevy 2500HD'S but could not find the set up in the color I wanted so I called a Ford dealer and they found several to match my desired truck. Needless to say I purchased the 250 and do not regret it at all.

purchased my f-250 with the 5.4 liter. i was woried at first that there wouldnt be enough power for a vehicle of this size but it actuly is just fine. I tow from time to time but never any more than 7000 pounds so i went withe the 5.4 liter. i get about 10 mpg in the city and 15-16 one the highway 70-80 mph. I love this truck has all the room you could ever want. the wife wanted an suv and i wanted a truck so we compromised and got the crew cab. also got the long bed mostly for the extra fuel capacity (38 gallons). I do recomend geting the step bars and the reverse vehicle sensor. due to the height and lenght of the vehicle. trust me you want them!!

This is the finest truck we have owned. 20.1 mpg on the highway last cross country trip. More than enough room for 6 adults. Kids can watch tv in the back. The diesel is a real joy to drive and going 475 miles between fuel stops is great. Drive diesel America! Ford is going to start selling a smaller diesel in the F-150/Expedition class trucks soon.

F250 w/ 7.3 L Diesel is a WINNER!!!

Powertrain is a proven winner. 7.3L Power Stroke is hands down the best light duty diesel every produced. Auto transmission is ultra smooth and distributes power well from the diesel. Crew cab interior room is phenominal. Payload and towing capacities are great. XLT Sport package is great. Chrome step bars are a great accent. Sound system rocks. No problems yet. GREAT fuel economy with the Diesel. I could have had the 6.0L CAT Diesel, but decided to go with the proven KING of diesel, the 7.3L. The 6.0L CAT has some big shoes to fill. BUY THIS TRUCK. Traded in my 2002 Dodge Ram (JUNK) for it. Have never looked back!!!

The truck is stylish enough to take the wife out, yet tough enough to haul the heaviest of loads. I own a construction company so it's nice to have the power with comfort.

I like the comfort and the mechanical performance. The diesel, even with a manual trans mission, has power when it's needed. I had a problem with the tail gate denting when someone jumped onto it from a loading dock, carrying a 50 lb. feed bag. It just doesn't seem as sturdy as my '78 F150. The depth of this tailgate is wider but has no reinforcement in it to prevent it from collapsing under weight.

I have driven pick up truck for most of my adult life and have had three Fords. So far the F-250, 7.3L, Lariat has been the best of the lot when it comes to perfomance, comfort, ride, style and just plain mojo. It looks like a truck, rides, like a truck, pulls like a semi but gets great fuel (diesel) mileage. My last truck, an F- 150 supercab, gas, ran for almost 235,000 miles before I sold it so it remains to be seen if the F-250 is that durable and reliable. We will see if Ford still builds their trucks "Ford Tough" or it is just a bunch of hype and hot air.

This truck has creamed the competition for me. I used to be a die-hard Chevy man, but this is in a completely different class. The ride is smooth with incredible power. Did I say it has power? What an understatement! The comfort is a real surprise. My wife was used to riding in my Chevy and was a little reluctant to even ride with me in this BIG truck. She is looking over my shoulder telling me to make sure people understand the comfort. I have the PowerStroke engine, and, surprisingly, it is quiet enough for my 3 week old son to sleep in. I highly recommend this vehicle!!
