Great Design, Poor Quality

ReviewLove this truck to drive. Looks good handles good, cleans up nice. One big shortfall - the overall maintenance and repair level is high and unacceptable. After owing this vehicle for 44 months I am spending annually about $2000 in repairs while I have spent less than $500 TOTAL for a Honda van of about the same age and mileage. Oil leaks, differential leaks, leaking heater cores, bad air conditioning clutch, heated mirrors have failed etc.... Just too much, it shouldn't be this way!
Best FeaturesDesign and size. Nice utility truck without being too big, can fit it into tight city parking garages but still haul stuff.
Worst FeaturesIf Dodge wants to compete with foreign or even other domestic makers they need to make some large strides in long term dependability and vastly reduce the overall maintenance cost!
