It's outrageous what Ford did to their customers. Aftermarket diesel guys found out how to "bulletproof" the 6.0L, Ford should have made those design changes and produced a reliable product instead of covering up the problems and then finding reasons to deny warranty coverage.

The fact that the 6.0 had problems doesn't make Ford a bad company. What makes them a bad company is how they handled those problems.

Since noone gives a rats asss about the 6.0no anymo, I have to say this....
How dumb Ford owners gotta be?

Now I'd understand if before the innerwebs existed, a "lemon" might take a while for word to get around. Years likely, with an issue similar to the 6.0no's problems.
But d@mn son....in 2003, the innerwebs was up n running and everyone had access to everything. No different than today, really.

I didn't even have a Ford (that I owned, although, by default I had a couple 6.0no company trucks cr@p the bed on me) or care about them and by 2004 I coulda told you that buying that engine made less sense than getting a d!ck tattooed on your forehead!

I wonder what the plaintiff is driving these days? Brand new PS would be my guess.

No props to Ford, but that Kool-aid runs deep with a lot of their customers.

It was pretty incriminating to Ford when they sued Navistar for damages due to the engine problems but refused to help their own customers.

The payback for those in the original class action suit would be embarrassing, down to $50.00? I am sure the lawyers came out well on it though. This thing was a mess and apparently is still a turd that wont flush for FORD. Whoever gave the internal documents to the plaintiff, made the case for him. Whatever $ the guy ends up with, he should hand some to those people. Pretty hard to fight an argument that Ford didn't know the situation when their own internal documents mention keeping documents tight to avoid class action lawsuits. That becomes an omission of guilt, and a cover up. I bet that it will be significant award for the plantiff.

My diesel mechanic told me to keep my 6.0 and bullet-proof it when the head gaskets failed at 196,000 miles. He knows the 6.4 and 6.7s are more difficult and expensive to repair, and he loves his personal 2004 F350. So, I spent $10k rather than $60k plus for a newer truck.

How about that. All the same old Ford bashers jumped right back on the wagon.
