FORD F-250 Used Car Review

Ford's F-series ute is the biggest-selling truck in North America, though it's only been available officially in Australia sporadically. The last time was between 2001 and 2007, when models engineered for right-hand drive in Brazil were imported here. In 2014, Australian company Performax International introduced right-hand-drive conversions of the latest F-250 (as well as the smaller F-150 and larger F-350).

Pros

Cons

  • Mammoth torque of big diesel V8 engines (old and new)
  • Cabin presentation and fit/finish of local conversion
  • Local conversions come with warranty
  • Enormous, multi-tonne towing capacity
  • Spartan interiors of older F-250s
  • Not that quick, despite huge engine outputs
  • Massively sized and massively heavy
  • Local conversions cost a fair chunk more than the old, Ford-imported F-250s

However it is still my daily driver, it still gets through most drive thrus, and just squeezes in to a standard car park. Although the arse hangs out a bit. These things are only going up in value now. You wont loose any money on this like a ranger or navara.

Overview of the Ford F250

Ford's F-series ute is the biggest-selling truck in North America, though it's only been available officially in Australia sporadically.

The last time was between 2001 and 2007, when models engineered for right-hand drive in Brazil were imported here.

In 2014, Australian company Performax International introduced right-hand-drive conversions of the latest F-250 (as well as the smaller F-150 and larger F-350).

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: FORD F-250 (2001 TO 2006)

The first thing to know about a second-hand F-250 is that nobody ever bought one of these brand-new for picking up bread and milk and collecting the dry-cleaning.

Chances are almost 100 per cent that the original owner used his or her F-250 as a work truck. So the trick is to find out what sort of work that was and then decide if there's any life left in it.

The big danger is that the F-250 in question has been used to tow heavy loads.

Take a look at the size and rating of the tow-bar fitted. If it has been used that way, check to see if there's an aftermarket cooler on the transmission as this was the driveline's Achilles' Heel.

A gearbox that shudders at light load could well be on the way out. Check the transmission fluid on the dipstick. It should be clean and not black, nor should it smell of burned toast. If it does, you might want to investigate further.
