$300 from Ford for 7.3 Godzilla

Seems the Godzilla ain't as much engine as Ford stated. Because of this original owners of 21 and 22 model year owners will get $300 from Ford.

The letter states this is a credit..... we have not followed through so I do not know if a credit is toward a future purchase or a refund.


Knowing Ford, it will probably be for floormats or Ford air freshners....

What's the details? Does acceptance release you from any further action against Ford? How bad did they overstate what?

Overstated by 25 HP, compensation from Ford is in the form of a $300 snail mail paper check.

Yes, I got the letter a few days which includes an access code that you use to identify yourself on Fordís website. Pretty easy to claim your check for $300.

I suspect this was done as a settlement of some pending class action lawsuit.

Doesnít change my mind. The Godzilla is a great engine.

I confess I did not notice the 25 missing horsepower.

I'll take $300. It is a fine engine and moves us down the road just fine.

Same here, ours performs just fine and if Ford hadn’t told me about I never would have noticed.

I also went to the website and claimed my $300 check 4 days ago. Did not post about it and thought I would see if anyone else did. Remains to be seen if we get the check. Says 4 to 6 weeks.

While I have been thrilled with the performance of my Godzilla, $300 will make me even happier !

Can someone add a link to claim this please ?

A link wonít do you any good by itself. In addition you need the authorization code that comes in the letter.

I've got a V10 Titan. Maybe I ought to get a horsepower check to see if Ford overstated it's HP, or even torque. I feel left out and envious.

The letter is from Ford to those who their record shows to be the original owner.
It looks just like a recall letter that they send out.

Can someone please redact their personal information and post a copy of the letter. I am the original owner and have used the same mailing address for years, but no such letter arrived at my mailbox
I tried searching the ford website and got nowhere.

Thanks in advance

Thanks Ace for posting that.

It says the letters were to be sent in late August, are they just being sent now and perhaps I didn't get one yet ?

I'm hoping not to do this for answers:

I'd be more concerned about reliability than a few HP. $300 is nothing to sneeze at, but the big picture is will Ford be dedicated to continuous updates/improvement of the newer engine? That's what made the V-10 such a venerable work horse. Just like with diesel engines, reliability and longevity are king.

It could just be a select group/series of engines...not all of them.

I went to https://fordownershipcare.com and it asks for a PIN, I don't have one, but there is a button to request one, and if eligible they will send a new one via snail mail.

Wait and see !

Thanks all

I just checked attempting to get a PIN number but got a response that my 2022 Miramar built on a 2021 F53 chassis is not part of the recall so I guess I will not be getting the letter or $300 from Ford.

It might just be for the E-Series chassis engines.
