This is a great truck for the family who has a home to maintain. With 70k miles, I've replaced tires, front hubs and brakes, battery, and gas cap. Reliable and economical (19-22 avg. MPG). I have a bed liner and cover which have served well. The jump seats are great for young people or short trips as well as letting you lock up purchases. With the V-6 I've never had a power problem with heavy loads. Seats are comfortable for "long trips".
Seven year old truck that still looks pretty good, drives well and gets better-than-average mileage. Virtually no mechanical problems except that I had to replace hubs due to a bad wheel bearing.
Better quaity control on paint. I'm going to have to have the roof repainted soon as the primer is showing through.
This is probably the worse vehicle I've ever
owned!!! The rotors have been replaced 3
times.The steering pump, belt
tensioner,water pump,both O2 sensors,coil
and an assortment of less serious parts
have all been replaced, mostly at my
expense. Dodge refused to warranty
anything after 36000 miles. I will never
again buy a Dodge product no matter how
