1986 Dodge D50 L023P 2.6L from North America
I would love it more if I could depend on it to get me from point A to point B without any problems
When it runs, it runs strong, but likes to stall. Have had to use the brake like a clutch to keep the truck from dying when turning into traffic. Sometimes it dies anyway. It took 5 1/2 hours to drive 125 miles because it keeps stalling.
It has no headliner, as that had already come down before I bought the truck.
The bench seat is completely deteriorated.
The seal on the back axle leaks as well. There is also a leak with the transmission fluid.
Would be an awesome truck otherwise. It feels sturdy and would make a great little work truck.
Don't know what the gas mileage is like, as it has been down more than running since I bought the truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Only 2000 miles in eight years? This thing really is a "garage queen", eh?

I had a 1983 D50 and it was a great truck.
It did not pass emissions inspection one year, and I replaced the carburetor with a rebuilt, and never had any more problems.
It may be difficult to find a new one these days.
Good luck with it.
