Good for the first five years

After my initial purchase and
subsequent visits to the dealer for
various quality control problems, the
truck worked very well for three
years. Shortly after this a series of
problems has made me question my
purchase of a Chrysler product. Three
sets fo brakes in less than 75,000
miles, various electrical gremlins,
suspension problems, and cracked
exhaust studs have jaded my initial
opinion of the vehicle. The recent
condition of peeling paint has made me
consider selling the vehicle and
purchasing one of foriegn manufacture.
The interior design of the truck is
very user friendly and extreemly quiet
while on the highway.
Better quality paint, more robust front
suspension and brakes, and better
attention to detail.
