I did extensive comparisons of Dodge,
Ford, Chevy and GMC. After years of
owning Ford heavies, I thought it would
be tough to switch but Dodge has done
their homework and kicks butt on the
competition. Incredible truck so far.
It makes me want to take a long road
trip. Quietest diesel. Tons of power
and plenty of top end. The automatic
(RE48) is smooth and solid. Great
turning circle. With less than 3000
miles were already getting 18 mpg
combined city (60%) and freeway (40%).
Fits and finishes are as good or better
than the competition.
In addition to all the above we also
particularly like the fold-flat floor
under the rear seat. Accessible with
one hand and great for hauling tools,
bags of seed, groceries, the dog, etc.
Dodge definitely paid more attention to
the details than the competition has.
Get Chrysler Corporation to make it
more attractive for non-selling dealers
to work on a vehicle even if the
vehicle wasnít purchased from that
dealer. I had a local dealer inform me
that they would not provide basic
warranty work on my truck since I
didnít buy it from them.
