The original truck was finally replaced after 8 weeks, numerous letters to the dealer, district manager, and arbitration. I had paid cash, and did not have a vehicle for that time, not much for customer relations.
Wouldn't run worth a damn at the high altitudes where I live in Colorado, gutless, stalling, rough running. Unfortunately it had run OK where I purchased it at a much lower altitude. No-one could figure it out, they thought I was being picky, until several other customers also complained. Was a smog device, O2 sensor issue according to the dealer, (they thought it sounded good eh)???
Plastic interior parts are cracking already, no hard use, they just get too brittle in the 0 degree winter weather. You would think in a $35,000 truck they would use better quality materials.
Pop's out of 4 wheel drive when shifting from reverse to forward. Transmission sticks in LOW in cold weather, will not up-shift. Very hard to put in 4 wheel drive when below 32 degrees, sometimes impossible.
Decent power, OK gas mileage for a full size truck. Will look at a Toyota for sure next time around. Was warned ahead of time by other truck owners.
The truck is OK, I made the mistake of buying it for it's good looks. Just like on women, it's the inside that counts, but you don't find out till it's too late.
Shop around, and if you mind is set on the Dodge, take it for a serious test drive first, not just down the street. If the dealer balks, MOVE ON.
