This Dodge diesel is a verry good truck, fun to drive and a lot more pickup speed than a Chevy Duramax diesel. I drove a Duramax for abought 5000 miles or so and there is no compairison to the Dodge diesel except for the fuel mileage. I get abought 15 to 16 mpg on the highway. I put on 300 to 400 highway miles on a week. Even with a k&n intake kit no better mileage. I have just over 20,700 miles on it and it's going back for the 2nd time to be looked at for the mileage problem.
Fun to drive. Lots of power. Excellent handling. Excellent sound system
Great truck for work and family. $250 chip gave me 120 hp and 3 more mpg. Took several long trips comfort and excellent fuel mileage.(but not quite as good as my 2004 2500 I had before.) I still range in the 19-21 mpg hwy if I keep it under 70. Cruising range in the 600-700 mile range. Will tow anything you hook it to have towed a 24k bachhoe with mine. And haul a 12k skidsteer regularly
I had a transmission solenoid go out around 10,000 miles causing slipping between 1st and 2nd gear. The warranty covered it but it took a special engineer to come down and isolate the problem. The truck is tough to maneuver. The megacab offers ample room inside but is not worth the sacrifice. This truck sticks out of my garage by more than a foot. Performance was lacking until an aftermarket exhaust and air intake were installed.
