Had my life threatened by management and was told no more Dodge vehicles in our fleet....ever.

That is all.

Life threatened by your own management or FCA's? Why?

My company. Too many recalls, the local dealerships suck and I guess the last straw was a 2015 leaving the wrong person stranded 300 miles from home. Couldn't get out of 1st gear.

I don't have any ecodiesels in my fleet if it makes you feel any better. In fact, we only have two trucks. Mostly cars and suvs.

Interesting. I think most Ford/Chevy/Dodge cars are pretty poor quality personally. Compared to Toyota, Honda, and Nissan anyway.

As far as trucks go, I think quality has really leveled out. In the 90s, I didn't think Ford made a very reliable pickup. Dodge picked that up in the late 90s and early 2000s. Chevy made great trucks back then but I don't think they're quite as good now. Toyotas were and are probably the most reliable, but I think generally speaking, the big 3 are catching them.

I will say this - my 2016 Ram ED is a much, much higher quality vehicle than my 2002 Ram 1500 was. But it wouldn't surprise me one bit if Dodge was building some sub-par cars and SUVs. It's really hard to beat Toyota & Ford in the car/SUV market IMHO.

Don't have much info on it, but I read today that a private law firm is trying to start a class action suit against FCA and Bosch because they think Ram did the same stuff to get the ecodiesel to pass emissions tests that VW did.

Heck I don't know I don't concern myself with what most people think of their vehicles. My truck is 9 months old and close to 20k miles on it and I drive less now than I ever have. I know about my vehicles from my experience.

Ive only had two that were unreliable. One was a Honda with way too many miles on it and poor service history and the other was a dodge 5.9 cummins with poor service and a tanking fuel system. Dead battery a starter or alternator or water pump every so often maybe but nothing out of the ordinary.

Hadn't heard about the lawsuit.

So I guess the question is: if our EDs get bought back, what is the next best truck as far as mpg that can tow at least 8k lbs comfortably?
