Fit and finish were very poor. I was
in the repair shop 8 times in the first
Two were for recalls, the rest for
squeaky brakes or for an alignment.
The alignment was set many times, but
the truck still pulls to the right. I
had the transmission replaced at 35000
miles because it wouldn't stay in
gear. That transmission locked up and
stuck in second first gear at 52000
miles. The transmission was rebuilt
from scratch at a cost of $2900.
I traded this vehicle one day after the
transmission rebuild was complete.
All told I have spent over a thousand
dollars in repairs on this truck and it
is STILL UNDER WARRANTY.
The turbodiesel is extremely strong and
durable. It would be a good engine in
Based on this vehicle and another new
Dodge purchased the same day -
Dodge should improve quality control.
Dodge should improve workmanship.
Dodge should improve the fit and finish
of their products.
Dodge should improve the attitudes of
their service staff.
