I wish the best for Ford. I'm an American after all.

However, the 2004 F350 6.0 Powerstroke that's in my driveway isn't helping. It's a total P.O.S. The majority of those motors go bad before 80k and they've had multiple class action lawsuits. The last decent Diesel Ford had made for them was the 7.2.... Yeah, maybe the new ones are getting better (supposedly, maybe?) but that doesn't change the fact that I have a POS time bomb in my driveway that I can't trust to take my family on any kind of a far away vacation. Everything else on the truck has fallen apart too. Just a hunk of junk....

Anyway, I'm getting off topic. You buy Fords and I'll wait till they EARN their reptuation back in the U.S.
Ford doesn't manufacture that engine - it's made by Navistar (think International trucks). Also, the fact that there's a class action suit doesn't conclude much. Those trucks are manufactured in very high volumes, so if there's a systemic problem, it would obviously affect a large number of people.

And the old PSD was a 7.3L, not a 7.2L (sorry, but I'm a bear for detail).
