The first repair must occur in the first 12 months or 18,000 miles whichever comes first. The OH Lemon Law also covers you if you have been in the shop for 8 total repair attempts, regardless if they are for the same or different problems or one attempt to repair a condition, which is likely to cause death or serious bodily injury.

In addition, The Ohio Lemon Law also applies to vehicles that are in the shop for repair thirty (30) or more calendar days during the first year.
Found here.

Seems like you would fall in the category of "8 total repair attempts". Did you buy the truck new or are you the second owner? I would get a lawyer regardless of first, second, third, etc ownership but if you're the first, go straight to the dealer. If you're the second or further, talk to the lawyer and see what you can do.

One of the reasons I wouldn't trade my '85 for a current one.


Uhh, is it a diesel? Because if it is, and the issue is engine related, then there's nothing Ford can do. International screwed them over, and they have no idea how to work on the diesels because Intl did that previously.

Tell the dealer you've hired a lawyer and will be taking legal action if they continue to do this.

14th time in 4 months is ridiculous.

Navistar only makes the 7.3, and its ford that did the screwing not navistar fyi.

Op: get a lawyer, thats far too expensive a truck just to write off as a loss.

Wrong, Navistar (the owners of International) made Ford's pickup diesels from 1983 to 2010, this includes:

6.9L
7.3L IDI
7.3L IDI Turbo
7.3L DI PowerStroke
6.0L PowerStroke
6.4L PowerStroke

You have to read the law closely its only considered a lemon if its the first year. After that it could be abuse or wear and tear. Mileage and the actual problems that were repaired each time play a part also.

My bad, I forgot that the 6.7 wasnt being introduced until this year. But I still think its Ford screwing Navistar

What I've heard from within the parts department of a Ford dealer is that Ford's on the short end of that stick. They've got all these broken engines and International won't warranty them. Ford doesn't know what to do with them, and they don't do diesels so they can't fix them.
