    It will even out after repair expenses over a few years. Besides, no one wants a Dodge.

    Resale on Dodges is lower due to initial price being considerably lower. This is mainly due to their being almost entirely outsourced.

    The new Dodges are fine trucks. The interior isnt as fancy as the other 2 big guys, but for a work truck, its great. I currently have an 06, tons of power, rides great, and by far the best looking 1500 class truck out. 18 MPGs on the highway empty and 15 MPG towing 3000 lbs all day. When I buy a new truck next year it will be a Dodge/Cummins. Also get a great 100K warranty on the new 1500s, so don't worry about repair cost.
