The F-350 is a heavy-duty truck with a 1-ton capacity as opposed to the 1/2 ton of the F-150. The Super Duty line was redesigned for 2015 with new exterior and revised engines. The ride is stiff and bouncy, especially compared to the F-150. Ford's 6.0-liter turbodiesel packs some real punch and is fairly quiet and free of vibration. Stepping into the cabin is more difficult because of the high floor.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

"Well documented death wobble has occurred twice since I've owned the vehicle. I have filed complaint on NHTSA site."

Anonymous, CO (2017 Ford F-350 XLT 6.7-L V8 diesel)

"Fortunately Ford acknowledged the death wobble and replaced the drag link, tightend up loose tie rods, etc."

Tom K., CO (2017 Ford F-350 XLT 6.7-L V8 diesel)
Steering wheel vibration

"Everyone that has had a Super-duty in the last few years has heard of the "death wobble". My truck only does it 2-3 times a year and the dealers don't do anything about it. It can be a bit of a shock the first time it happens to you, but you learn to deal with it. Only problem I've had with the truck."

Anonymous, (2017 Ford F-350 Lariat 6.7-L V8 diesel)

"Over time a vibration from rough roads was being transmitted to the steering wheel, I hadn't realized how much until I had the truck repaired. The ultimate reason I had the truck repaired was because it had gotten to the point that when I drove over parts of the road that exhibited a wash board affect,the front wheels would begin to bounce in a uncontrolled oscillating fashion. I would have to slow down quickly to regain control of the steering. The term for the malfunction is "The death wobble." Ford repaired the front end under warranty and that is when I discovered how much steering wheel vibration I had become accustomed too without realizing it."

Anonymous, VA (2017 Ford F-350 Lariat 6.7-L V8 diesel)

Sunroof

"In 2018, 1 year after purchase, I tried to open the sunroof. I heard a pop and it stopped working. The mechanism needed to be replaced, but fortunately it was covered by warranty. This spring, in May 2020, the same thing happened. It appears to be the seals sticking and the mechanism isn't strong enough to open, so it breaks. This time it was out of warranty, so I must pay out of pocket. I'm worried it will break again, and Ford does not have a good answer."

Anonymous, UT (2017 Ford F-350 XLT 6.7-L V8 diesel)

"My brand new truck with less than 1200 miles on it experienced a faulty def sensor. I was 900 miles from home with a broken leg and a toddler. The truck was so new that the local dealership didn't have the part, and they couldn't order one because there weren't any available to order. Ford would not exchange the sensor with another one in a truck sitting on their lot, stating that if they swapped sensors it would void both trucks' warranties. They Leo wouldn't pay to haul the truck back home, nor would they give me a loaner vehicle. I will never buy another Ford again."

Michelle S., UT (2017 Ford F-350 XLT 6.7-L V8 diesel)
Fuel pump

"Fuel pump had to be replaced in 2017 and 2018. Also the wiring harness for the pump was replaced because of corrosion . For a new truck this should not have happened under normal driving conditions. We drive on dirt roads 50 % of the time but have other ford trucks and never had problems. if this wasnt covered under extended warranty might have just gave them the truck back."

"While attached to a trailer (3-different ones) the truck would intermittently indicate a problem with the right turn/stop lights and they would cease to function, coming back on randomly. Two trips to service brought little resolution except that it may be caused by a Bluetooth OBDII sensor. Have yet to pull without the sensor in place."

Heated or cooled seats

"In the winter of 2018 the passenger seat stopped working. I took it in for repair, under warranty, and it was fixed. Earlier in 2020 the passenger seat stopped working again. It was out of warranty, so I waited a bit hoping the problem would fix itself, and it did. Combined with the sunroof problem, my opinion of Ford quality is very, very low."
