When I lived in WY I wanted my first diesel. Bought the Dodge('06) to get the Cummins 5.9...........great motor...........truck itself.......hurt me bad! It ATE ball joints, would not/ could not track a straight line.....even with an aftermarket steering stabilizer.......interior cheap......seats brutal....the list goes on.....last but not least......very thin sheet metal. As we know....Dodge & reliability do not go together. I would like to see the Cummins(bullet proof 5.9) in a Ford body.Danesdad said:The only Dodge truck I had brand new, I had to have the transmission rebuilt at 72,000 miles. That is unacceptable to me. Plus, after about 7 years, it was nickel and diming me. If I'd bought a Toyota at the time, I probably would have gotten five years more out of it.
Actually, now I'm a Nissan guy. You'll get more truck for the money than you will from Toyota, similar quality, and less rust issues from the past. Dodge can't even compare in reliability.
Dodge does make a good looking truck, and probably the best diesel motor out there. Dodge reminds me of having a smoking hot girlfriend. Everybody turns their heads when she goes by, but she's real high maintenance and takes a lot of work to keep going good.
Not really. Chevy, Nissan and Dodges in the past. What I am is, someone who doesn't beleive our government should be picking winners and losers in any industry.Swift said:
If you combine the Chevy and GMC models( they are the same truck) they outsell the Fords.bigbear said:
