Disappointed in reliability

ReviewUnfortunately, after 36,500 miles, it has been in the shop several times. Rack and pinion system replaced already & is now in for transmission work. "Check engine" light has sent it to the shop four times in less than a year. First two times were vacumn problem, the third time they couldn't find anything (still under warranty By about 400 miles) and now, 500 miles after the warranty expired, they found a transmission problem that is going to cost me $550. To be fair to the selling dealership, it is about 20 miles away in Cornelius, NC and is not the dealership screwing around with me. The culprit is Keffer Dodge here in Charlotte.
Best FeaturesInterior is well designed. Sound system is very good. This is a smaller truck but has a full size bed which is good.
Worst FeaturesBetter reliability. Improve bumpy ride. 6 cylinder engine doesn't have much pickup. Does well after it gets going but don't take any chances at Interstate ramps - you can't depend on the truck to accelerate to get you out of the way very fast.
