As a regular viewer and sometimes contributor to these forums, I have felt fortunate in that I am not experiencing the types of problems many of you are having. That said, I have spent more time at my dealership for non-routine maintenance of mostly minor, non-operational issues (e.g., poorly fit seat cover, headlight alignment problems, loose foglight, etc.). Generally takes a minimum of two visits for each issue because parts are never in stock. Most recently, the dealership did not have a fuel filter in stock so had to come back again to have that replaced (really?).

Well, after 30,000 miles on my truck it looks like I get to join the rest of you with more serious problems. The CEL came on last night (I'm typing this as I sit in the waiting room) and preliminary code scan is indicating the dreaded P020EE: emissions/DEF system/catalytic converter. So much for next week's planned vacation. Hoping my dealership will have learned lessons from others so that I do not go around and around and around as many of you have had to do.

Although I have really liked my Laramie EcoDiesel thus far, I'm starting to seriously reconsider the wisdom of my purchase. Perhaps I will walk over to the Ford and GM dealers that are across the parking lot while I wait...

Me too ! I had nothing but good things to say about mine until last week when the AC started acting up, then the battery was dead in the morning. Mine has 21000 miles and is 11 months old. Had it towed to dealer and dealer could not get to it for five days so now I had it towed to the dealer where I bought the truck. At a minimum I will be without my truck a week which I need to get to work. I immediately canceled my extended warranty. I refuse to go thru this nonsense each time I have a problem. Love the truck BUT service is poor.

I can understand the battery issue since batteries are like that, even when brand new they can die out randomly, but everything else is sort of unacceptable.
