When I took my $75k dually in for a recall and power mirror replacement, I received a 4 year old SuperCab F-150 in STX trim.
I don't understand why dealers don't lend out more expensive versions when giving out loaners. Show a customer what they are missing and they might be persuaded to upgrade. Or be cheap and the customer will be glad to get their current car back.

Are you getting it serviced at the dealer you purchased it from? If so, it makes sense. I didnít buy my truck from my local dealer because, well, I live in Southern California so...

When I took it there for service recently they looked at me like I had two heads when I asked about a loaner. Presumably, or rather hopefully, my experience would be different had I bought the truck from them originally. Iíd happily take my truck back to the dealership I bought it from, but 3000 miles is a little far to drive for service.

Nope, different dealer. I did not have a good experience at my dealer but I figured I would try the service department. Called for an appointment, got disconnected three times and finally ended up on someone's voice mail. That didn't bode well for my ocd so called another dealer. Very professional. They have their own loaner fleet. I had to wait for their Ford Master Tech to address my issue. He looked at it today and said yup it's the pan, part in tomorrow.

Edit: I do have the esp with first day rental.

That is exactly what our BMW dealer does.

Oh, nice. I might try another dealership then, though it will mean a bit of a drive.

Update: Dealer inspected (after 3 day wait for master mechanic) and said yup it's leaking we will order a new pan. Pan came in the next day and was installed by mm. Picked up truck and looked at invoice, no oil filter. I pointed out that the service manual calls for a new filter and after some discussion one was installed and I took her home.

Next day put her on the hoist to rotate tires (shit those bastards are heavy) and saw some oil underneath. Dropped the pans to clean them and now its puking oil instead of leaking.

Returned to dealer same mm inspected. Master mechanic says "They must have spilled all that oil when they replaced the filter". After demanding a dye test, the new pan has a crack on the front side. "Don't know if it came that way or was cracked on installation."

We will try again tomorrow.

I wonder if the aftermarket is working on a steel replacement oil pan? These plastic oil pans are junk.

We get it Mcnawsty (aka Sasquatch), the G2 is junk and you hate it.

You "like" a post anytime someone has a problem, yet you dont even own one. So why are you on this forum? Do you work for a competitor?

And when is that new engine you promised coming?

Just think, by the time you drove it home, it'd be ready to go back for another oil change!

We've got a 2016 F-150 2.7L in our household, bought new, now has over 20k miles. Plastic oil pan with quarter-turn drain hasn't given any trouble at all.

Interestingly, when Ford released the new 6.7L Powerstroke for 2011, it also came with a plastic oil pan and the quarter-turn drain plug. In 2012, they went back to a stamped steel oil pan with a normal drain plug bolt. I never heard any complaints about the plastic pan; in fact some owners who eventually traded in their 2011's lamented going back to a steel pan. Ford has a long history of having their thin stamped steel oil pans rot out.

But plastic pans are used very successfully on many vehicles, not just Fords. They are lighter weight, possibly cheaper to make, and have better noise control than thin steel.

I've never heard of a Ford oil pan rusting through, and I live in the rust belt. If it will rust through, it does here.

I think they should have used aluminum. No issues with rust, excessive heat, or chemical attack. Not as good with impacts as steel, but still better then plastic. Seems like it's the gaskets that are really the problem though.
