I say put $5,000 in the bank and call that your warranty.
Good plan But a HPFP failure can run 15,000.00

Better up the savings some.


It's more like $8,000.

OP,
I have a '12 truck and choose not to get an extended warranty and it was the right choice.


Your price is low Fish. Dog was right on the money. And this was in Texas. Maybe you get the cuz discount? [emoticon]
I have never seen a report of 8K... Every one has been over 10K. 15K at the top end

And I have seen a lot of them.
Not saying it hasn't happened.... But that would be really cheap.

And when it happens, you probably will not be in a postion to shop around.


Are we selling Ocean Front Property in Arizona again... [emoticon]

Ford offers a fuel system replacement kit that cost's less than purchasing all the parts separately that cost ~$3,300 for all the parts except for a $70 fuel filter. That leaves an easy ~$5,000 for labor. In addition some independent shops are now doing it for even less than what I stated.

Fyi: I purchased a Ford ESP through Lombard Ford online for my then new 16. About $2,000 for the top plan for 8/100,000.

I would never buy one of those policies.
$150 a month. $1800 a year. Most repairs cost less than that.

Nice story. OPs question is about a 9 year old truck.

That’s another reason to pass imo. Don’t need to be a Powerstroke expert. Half the advantage of towing heavy with a diesel besides more power is a good exhaust brake.

Again, like I said originally, if it’s a great deal, it’s a good truck. But IMO it doesn’t check enough of the “right” boxes for a newer diesel.

OP, the die-hard Blue Oval fans will likely roast me for this, but the 2011 6.7L had several teething pains, some of them quite serious. If you are set on a Ford, go for a 2015 and up (or a good old 7.3L), but be aware that the high pressure fuel pump failure potential is valid for all 6.7L Fords. Some will tell you it's rare, but it truly sucks if it happens to you. At my work, we have a lot of Fords and have gone mostly with gas engines, and it's not because of the initial purchase price......Flame suit on! [emoticon]

Yes, the 2011 does have some exhaust braking that is sufficient for towing a travel trailer.
