    Do the poll to find out who has the problems.

    I'm not sure this poll can be accurate because you can only submit one vote. So say I had problems with a Dodge and Ford, and I vote for both of them, the poll will only accept one vote.

    I tried it by voting for two of the trucks, and it only registered one of them. I then edited out my vote, so the results are now back to zero.

    Also will not be accurate because more guys (and Jodi) ;) may have fords than dodges therefore it may look like there are more ford tranny repairs than Dodge.... which....as a dodge owner.......I can even admit would be rediculous (although I haven't had any problems.....know on wood).

    An owner of a tranny shop here says that Ford and
    Dodge is keeping him in business. Guess the Chevy
    is most reliable to him. But, I have done searches
    on truck-talk websites and found a few Chevy owners
    who lost their tranny's at 30,000 miles! Maybe we
    just need to take it easier and keep the fluids
    changed each year. (and for heaven sakes-get a
    tranny cooler)
