"Gas mileage is poor for a small engine, the seats are not very supportive, and around fenders they rust."

Rugged, comfortable and reliable

"We've used this truck for everything including long trips, towing, hauling, off road, etc. Very comfortable. For the first 145,000 miles it had only routine maintenance, and one hose clamp replaced."

8 years and 78,000 miles and not a single issue.

Pros: "Reliability, power, great handling heavily loaded"

Cons: "Wind noise, harsh ride unloaded, squeaks/rattles."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have made four coast to coast trips pulling an 11.500 lb. fifth wheel, and have not had a single issue with this truck. Fuel economy is fantastic, averaging 16 MPG while towing, 25-26 MPG highway driving bob-tail, and average 18/19 MPG combined city/highway driving. Truck does have more wind noise, squeaks, rattles and harsher ride than comparable Ford or Chevy, but reliability, ease of DIY service, and fuel economy make it a winner."

Pros: "Low mileage, dual cab,, 8ft lined bed, spacious"

Cons: "Rust on sides, bump on bumper"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Good running vehicle replaced transmission less than 1000.00 on it. I had it done by a local service station. It is a new tranny. It has rust on both sides of rear wheel bases. It also has a bump on chrome bumper. Looks and runs great. Too big for me as I'm 5ft tall and don't need a family or work vehicle."

Great truck!

"Bought brand new in September 2008. Was not a Dodge fan but they beat Ford and GM's price so I went with it and now I'm glad I did! All I had to do so far is replace the battery last year and replace the tires!"
