The F-350 is a much heavier truck compared to the popular F-150. The F-350 comes with a 1-ton capacity as opposed to the 1/2 ton of the F-150. The Super Duty line has a ride that's stiff and bouncy, especially compared to the F-150. Powertrain choices include a 7.3-liter gasoline engine mated to a 10-speed automatic, as well as a 6.2-liter gas V8 and 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel which get a six-speed automatic transmission.

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.

VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD

In the event of a crash, if the windshield separates from the vehicle, it can increase the risk of injury.
Summary:
Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2021 F-150 and 2020-2021 F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 Super Duty vehicles. During manufacturing, the windshield may not have been properly bonded to the vehicle, allowing it to detach in a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 212, "Windshield Mounting."
What should you do:
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will remove and reinstall the windshield, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 6, 2021. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 21C06.
