06 Ford F350 6.0 ??

Im thinking of buying an '06 F350 for the end of the year "deals". Im looking at a 6.0 Diesel and I know they have had quite a few problems when they first came out. Do any of you guys have one of these? If so,how do you like it? Problems?I know theres a new motor coming out,but I hear it needs the new fuel too? Im looking for a standard cab 6.0.

Thanks,Mark

Ford seems to have worked out the majority of the problems with their 6.0 diesel. Might ask this question on www.thedieselstop.com and they can direct ya further. After the initial disaster they had I sure as hell wouldnt buy one but thats just me. I see more powerstrokes goin down the road than any other diesel.

o yea i forgot make sure if you buy a 7.3 make sure its a powerstoke it has eletronic injectors not the old style lift pump. they had probles with them the older 6.9 and 7.3 had their share of probles too they are known as the idi(in direct injection) they did come in turbo too but if you buy one make sure its a powerstroke 95 till 02 they made the 7.3 powerstoke

if you have any questions feel free to pm me i know alot about diesel

The 6.0 liters took two years to get the bugs worked out, mostly injectors. They don't have problems with these engines any more than Dodge or Chevy has with their new engines. All three make a pretty good engine these days. Chevy still has the best auto trans.
