2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 5.9 from North America
I am not a happy camper!
I have gone through 8 sets of front brakes with this truck, 3 sets of rotors, 1 caliper, broken springs in the back.
I am on my 3rd set of tires.
Fuel pump, rotted a/c evaporator (what is that design all about?), transmission cooler, front and rear sway bar linkage, 4 sets of spark plugs, 3 sets of wires, 3 distributor caps and rotor - last cap the screws broke in distributor.
Fuel injector rail leaking, steering wheel tilted to one side.
Even the radio stopped working.
Power seat fails.
Rust coming through doors and rear fenders.
Two exhaust systems (one fell right off). Exhaust manifold bolts rusted right off of engine block.
A/C compressor freezes up - must whack with hammer on occasion.
Radiator leaks, must use stop leak.
The door panels rattle, leather seat seams ripped from normal wear and tear.
Overdrive going off on its own.
I am stuck with this truck. I know when I sold my my 1994 Chevy a year ago it had not a spot of rust on it, not a rip in the interior, had 359,000 miles on it, got 18 MPG and is still running the roads. My 1988 Chevy with a 4.3 V6 had 490,000 miles. Both trucks only required the scheduled fluid changes and normal maintenance.
I can't unload this truck -- my wife told me so when I brought it home.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
