Overall,a pretty good vehicle, however I'm not very pleased with warranty repair response from Dodge Dealerships. Experienced two rear axle seal problems on same axle within 51,000 miles, which ruined the rear brakes, and Dodge would not repair. One recall for fuel boost pump(rebuild) which later failed and no consideration given.
Sport Package. The Cummins diesel gives great fuel mileage, 20.5 to 27 highway, with exceptional power.
This is a great truck. I've had no problems with it and will definiltely buy another one. The 5.9 liter engine has plenty of power and torque. The truck takes weight excellent, and with 3000 pounds of weight it isn't even on the helper springs. I think it is more of a rugged work truck than the Fords and Chevys.
Had nothing major go wrong except for a pressure sensor on the transmission, which was simple to fix. Cummins turbo is awesome. Haven't met a challenge it could not handle. Outside stance and overall look is awesome. Sharper than any Ford or Chevy in town. Dependable starting in the winter time and good fuel economy in the summer time. All I want is a newer model!
I cannot beleive the smoothness and
unlimited power this engine produces.
It cannot be beat for pulling a fifth
wheel (5500 LBS>). Empty on the
highway at 72 MPH I can get 15.2 MPG.
Pulling the trailer about 8.5.
V10. Manual Transmission, 8 way power
seat, overhead compass thermometer info
I had problems with the oil sending unit
which Dodge would not or could not fix.
Nor would they acknowledge the problem.
Since Dodge showed no interest in
customer service or retention, I am now
a proud owner of a New F250. The brake
system and noise in the steering colunm
are also a concern. Although Dodge did
acknowledge the steering column problem,
they refuse to notify current and future
owners of the problem or simply recall
the defect. As it was explained to me,
the noise is a result of faulty spacers
in the steering column.
Customer service is in dire need!!!!
