2006 Dodge Ram Pickup Ram Hemi from North America
The 10 worst cars and trucks of 2007 came out today and Dodge and Chrysler were the FIRST 5
Brake trouble, Computer trouble, Dealer has trouble with front end and tires are wearing on inside. Seats springs are making popping noises.
I made a mistake and purchased my first Dodge truck in 2006 because the price was CHEAP little did I know the whole truck was CHEAP. I can't trade it because I would never get in trade for what I now owe! The resale value of this truck stinks, I paid 20,000 in 2006 and in 2007 the Ford dealer would only offer me 13,000 in trade and all car lots say 13,000 is the NORM for this Dodge. So today I'm reading the paper and notice the 10 worst cars and trucks of 2007 were published, Dodge vehicles made the "FIRST 5"! Lessons learned the hard way!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yeah I see where you are coming from, Dodge trucks have the lowest resale value of all trucks and it has been that way for about 60 years. The Kelley Blue Book trade in value of a Dodge 2006, SL, truck with the 4.7 V8 and 20,000 miles today is only $10,115; a huge loss from what most people paid at the dealer. If you take a look on ebay, people are getting triple for Chevys and Fords compared to the Dodge trucks. You could take a 2003 Chevy S-10 to a dealer and get more for your trade than a 2006 Dodge... it stinks, but that is reality.
The Chrysler Sebring has the lowest resale value of all vehicles, I read an article in Car & Driver magazine about it, and it said if you paid like 28,000 in 2005 for a new Sebring today, it would be worth about 7,000 in trade in value... that's why you can go to a dealer and buy a 2005 or 2006 Sebring for around 10,000 to 12,000 easy.
