As an owner of a 1999 250 7.3 I recognize that that is a sound engine and drivetrain. I also am familiar with the diesel issues subsequent to the 7.3.

Now I'm thinking of buying a 2015 350 6.7 with low miles. I will take it to the Dealer to have an inspection done prior to purchase.

Is there a summary of issues associated with this vehicle?

I've seen a couple such as minor vibration issues but is there a more comprehensive list?

Thanks!

Gary

There's a knocking issue but I'll let others comment on that. I have a 2015 250 XLT 6.7 I put 28000 and counting miles on it (bought it a year ago) haven't had a single problem. Daughter had a 2013 put 50K on it not a single problem. Just traded hers in on a 2016 she's gonna be a vet and needs long bed.
Just traded the wifes 6.4 450 with 89,000 on a 2016 350. I say go for it.

Almost 40K with half of that towing a 10K fifth wheel and not a single issue on my 2015.

Yes it did, although only 12K miles. The car has since been sold. Thanks to everyone for their contribution. This will be useful going forward.

Loads of $24,000 engine explosions in all the 6.7. I would be leary, but of course all the failures speak up and all the good ones mostly remain silent, so hard to determine the actual percentage of lemons. For sure buy the 8ft bed if you do buy. A shortbed F350 is just so not right it's rediculous. I can say the best feature of my 1997 F350 is they are "All" longbed. No need to worry of short bed. Too bad about the transmission issues anymore. That and the worry of shortbed coupled with the $24,000 explosions puts a big damper in newer trucks.

Short Bed and F350 not good? I wouldn't have it any other way... I carry a 4,500lb Lance in it all over america.... it's the 4 F350 short box I've owned... I've owned pickups since 1966...All worked in my business... you name it..doge,etc. Volkswagon pickups as well. Long bed's in the mix..

If the OP's truck run's good he's all set.. proper maintenance is key. I've put on 200k on the 6.7's without a glitch so far. A 2015 is vastly improved in many areas..Buy it... if the price is satisfactory for you..
