Summary:

Great reliable work truck if you have the money to keep it running

Faults:

Truck will randomly not start sometimes; give it ten minutes and it starts fine.

General Comments:

Truck runs great with no problems, hasn't left me walking yet.

Bench seat is very uncomfortable on longer trips.

Great work truck with lots of power, will pull just about anything you put behind it.

Expensive to maintain; 100 dollar air filter, 130 dollar fuel filters, 85 dollar oil change.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

If you want something for working, this is it!

Faults:

I had the EGR valve alarm on me, which caused the truck to shut down. It came right back to life as I was rolling down the road.

Second time it happened when I pushed the clutch in to down shift; dumped the clutch and it came back to life.

Dealer wants 300 for new EGR valve, but I'm told it can be cleaned and put back in.

Noisy ball joint, but still tight.

General Comments:

This is a great work truck, with an emphasis on work. Very comfortable, as I do take it on long distance trips pulling my 20' gooseneck flatbed trailer.

Awesome power; pulls like there is no tomorrow, big step up from a 1/2 ton.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
