I will say that the Ram is not an ugly truck. However, dependability & quality wise it blows big. I am the unfournate owner of one & hope to get of this rid of this piece of junk soon. DC quality is going down hill. The old Dodges like 80s models are better than their newer ones. The new 1500 Rams have weak axles & the HEMIs some of them have bad valve springs as well. DC is denying these warranty claims because it's a cover up because they don't want to do a recall. Please god, help me get out of this piece of junk. It's been more in the shop than on the road.

Just trade in that piece of crap Dodge even at a loss (upside down loan)
and get America's Best Truck (Titan!!!!)
Love the sound of the engine. That's why I nicknamed my Titan The Beast.
:cheers:

To be fair, studies are showing that the big 3 are closing the gap in reliability when compared with Nissan and Toyota. They still aren't as good. After owning a Dakota, quality and long-term reliability has become a big factor to me.

Now, I would say that the others are complete junk, but if it hadn't been for the release of the Titan, I would be saving for a Tundra Double cab right now and having a TRD supercharger installed. I'm glad the I can choose the Titan. The other trucks I drove (all of them) are just OK. They seem like they are made to be completely utilitarian. The Titan not only serves the same needs, but made me happy when I drove it! So I guess that disproves the old cliche that money can't buy happiness. For me, it can be bought for $33-$36k!

I didn't participate in the pole because I wouldn't label any of them as complete junk. I think the Chevy is the ugliest, and the Dodge is most likely to give you mechanical problems.

I've said this before...Where were these Dodge guys a few years ago before the new style came out? Man was Dodge one ugly truck, but I have to say that in my opinion it looks the best of all right now but I still did not think of owning one. That being said, and it is not necessarily fair, I think Dodge looks the best of the big 3 with Ford and Chevy (has to be outrigged to look awsome) next in line. Dodge wins on looks and cheap price!! Chevy wins the value (trade-in) or resale and Ford wins the 100 color combos to choose from category and nice interior award.

Titan wins the "Look at me in one bad #%#@$%#% Truck!!!!" And the LAMTA AWARD "Look at my tailgate award!!!!" :haveredfl

i have always had good experience whith GM products. My dad has always had Chevy trucks and i have always had Isuzu. They are perty well made trucks. But you can see a bit of the Japanese refinement wen you compare an Isuzu Rodeo to a Chevy Blazer.

I chose silverado cause its overpriced, and its junk. A friend of mine just paid 35k for a silverado, and only thing that doesn't rattle is the XM radio he pays $10 a month for. I drive a dodge, and i understand dodge's reputation. They are getting better, and working on this reputation problem. As far as the axle problem that was commented on. The same company makes Hummer, GM, and many other axles. We are talking millions of vehicles, with few failures. Sounds like a bad lot of axles got out there. Same exact thing with the valve springs. Vendor problems. I am by know means defending dodge cause i work for them. There front wheel cars got junk transmissions. I would never buy a front wheel drive chrysler product. Plus there is a lemon in every bunch, and all makes will have them also.
