My 2000 Dodge was a fine truck............that is until it hit 50,000 miles. I'm pissed right now and since I own it I can talk about it. The transmission is on the checkout line. This comes just a week after the heater core gave up and started steaming the cab up, the overdrive button is now an intermittent button, sometimes it engages and sometimes it doesn't. The vaccum pump, or air pump, which costs $1530.00 to replce from the dealer is leaking oil and of corse it's out of warranty along with all the other items I've mentioned. Lets see: $1530.00 for pump $125.00 heater core $372.00 Labor for installation of heater core ????????? unsure about o/d button, haven't had a chance to get it checked out and very unsure about the tranny cause this just happened yesterday......with 3 days left until Thanksgiving and no way to pull my trailer I guess I'll have some pissed customers now! I read once where the Cummins would be there for a while but the truck would fall down around it......I didn't understand it when I read it but now I do. 6 months left on the lease and I'm very tempted to make an early return. Lesson learned: Always purchase that extended warranty they try and sell you and never listen to those that say it's a bad investment......if you do it at purchase you'll get used to the extra included in the payment.........if you don't.....like me........your wondering where the moneys gonna come from to fix all the crap that's tearin' up-------not to mention what I'm gonna tell my customers that expect their lawns to look good next week. Now would be a good time for it to start raining and continue right on through Thanksgiving..... Sorry Dodge........you let me down.
