Fun truck, but Mother Mopar could have done better
Within two days of purchase, the front brake rotors warped and had to be turned.
At about 26,000 miles it developed an ignition miss.
At 26,000 miles the exhaust hanger on the right side simply broke (the metal broke right in the middle).
At 27,000 miles the transfer case came apart, literally, while in two-wheel-drive (I was going 75mph on the freeway at the time).
The truck looks awesome when it's clean.
It's fun to drive when it is running right.
The interior is very comfortable.
It performs great off-road.
However, the gas mileage is terrible (17mpg-highway/ 14mpg-city).
The automatic transmission's shift points are too low and rob the engine of performance- not a high performance trans, for sure.
The front end bobs, creeks and growls under hard stop.
The 3yr/36,000 warranty is standard, unless you want to pay more for the 7yr/70,000. (which is disappointing since all of the other major manufacturers offer 7/70 standard)
The warranty service is horrible at both dealerships I've had to take the truck to for service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
