I understand customers' complaints. This truck isn't just a workhorse anymore. It's being used as a luxury car - lifestyle, status -- and can be $70,000-plus with progressive technology. The issue might not have changed in the past few years, but the truck has. I don't think this would be as easily dismissed in a $70,000 Mercedes or Audi.

I'll never have to worry cause I can only afford things that are 8 years old and have been owned by 3 maybe 4 people.


Ford didn't paint the 6.7s and engine were rusty within months. Ugly looking

Agree, not to mention the diff is pretty visible on a truck

All the more reason to not buy the first model year after an update

I looked at f350 a few weeks ago and the rear diff looked all rusty and the truck had 300 miles. I agree it should NOT look this way especially if someone is spending that kind of coin. For fuck sakes just charge the customer an extra charge on the msrp so it don’t look like a 1985 iroc-z.

And people say rams rust out...
They do lol I remember selling a 17 ram with rust on cab not too long ago. I appraised a 17 chebby impala with 2 spots of rust on the door. Like damn that’s quick and both vehicles had low miles. This is on the body not the chassis or diff. The manufacturer should do a better job of coating these vehicles since everything is so expensive.

Is my 2015 F150 diff rusty? Yes. Do I care? No. It's a truck and it's a chunk of metal under the truck. At least the body is all aluminum and that is the rust I care about.

Not that I give one shit if the rear axle is Rusty on a work truck, but this thread peaked my interest. Here’s my ‘18 F150. 71k miles. Heavily salted every winter...lol

Most of the ones you'd expect are present. Where's iraqvet? :ROFLMAO:
Lol you’re kidding right? Every time there is something even whispered about a Ford, your vagina starts throbbing and you just have to comment about how much Ford sucks!

I say nothing to you and yet here you are quoting my post :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:. Maybe you missed it but this thread about Fords sucking and you feel the need to be a blue oval Karen. K.
