2003 6.0 lemons

I had a F350 6.0 2003 that was in the shop for 51 days over the last 3 years--three different dealerships. Finally they put in a NEW engine. Still had a sensor or turbo failure every other trip. Anyway, long story short, I bought a new 2006 and they are taking large amounts off the stickers if you trade in a 2003. The dealer said Ford wants to retain customers who bought the lemons of 03 and they really made me a great deal. the new truck is a F350 long bed FX4 Lariet loaded. The sticker was 49900.00 and they sold it to me for 37500.00 and they gave me 26500 for my lemon. I was happy with the deal and the new truck is so much better and gets great fuel mileage. On the 03 I got 10mpg towing and with the 06 with less than 1500 miles I already get 13. If you have an 03 I strongly suggest you go cut a great deal on a new one!!!!
