Personally I do not care for Chrysler products at all, it's all dad ever bought, all new but junk. I remember in 1974 he bought a brand new New Yorker and we headed to Alberta for vacation, a 7 day each way trip, the transmission went after two days, every friggin one he bought was trouble, mom bought a new Chrysler Acclaim after he passed away just a few years ago, the engine went in the first year all under warranty but.......
If VW made a truck and it was a diesel, I would buy it in a heart beat, I have been running VW's diesel cars for over 20 years, they last forever and I have never had a problem, they are good for 300,000 miles no problem at all.
For a truck I drive a Ford, the one I drive is just over a year old and has already had close to $4,000 in repairs and that is with around 18,000 miles and I baby everything I have, my other Ford is two years old, same friggin thing, wheel bearings were the last thing to go, it has around 30,000 miles on it. We just added a GMC 2500 diesel, we shall see how this goes, it is very poor on fuel for a diesel but at least it has the power needed to pull our bigger gear.
