We have to speak up Frank. Other wise guys like you and markandkim might not know what you are missing or what misery you are subjecting yourselves and your loved ones to.

Shucks Lloyd it is unfortunate that you have to drive down the road and missing the best ride in the big three of course you might be allergic to smiles

Back in 2003 I was in the market for a diesel. I was all set to purchase a Dodge with the Cummings in it. Then I took it for a test drive/ride. It reminded me of when I was kid on the farm and would ride on the wagon/hay rack when we were going down the lane road for another load of hay. I thought boy, I don't need to be taking a pounding like this any more.
So I bought the Duramax. Kept it for ten years then traded it for the Eco-Boost. Been smiling ever since.

Does anyone really want to buy a truck from Fiat?
Quote:
Under its new owner, Fiat (FIATY.PK), the Ram truck brand now thoroughly isolated from its former Dodge heritage rounds out the top ten most unreliable. Interestingly the entry-level 1500 yieled the fewest issues. The larger, heavy-duty 2500 and 3500 turbodiesels were the most problematic.

I understand that Fiat is looking for new foster parents for Chrysler. It's trying to unload them now.

Frank, A little less than replacing the Dodge/Ram transmissions that have a tendency to go bad.

It's funny how the little guys want to spit out numbers to justify their means. Just get a real truck and be done with it.

Lloyd, when you can't find the facts and numbers to substantiate your argument, you revert to dumb comments. But that's OK, you have to feel sorry for them and hope that sometime in the future they'll see the light.



This will lead up to another dumb statement.

Really
Mine had no problems pulling stock what so ever. I have run heavy horsepower all my life and see no reason to change yet. I am so very happy that you like your truck.hope you get many miles before it falls apart.
