March 27, 2011I own a 2011 Dodge 2500 Diesel and the thing I like the most is the Alpine Radio. The next is what sold me on the truck. The automatic transmission. I was an Ford Truck Owner for 35 years and my 2005 F350 Diesel had 61000 miles on it and the trans went,Inter cooler pipe blew off, Head-gaskets, Oil Cooler, EGR Cooler, Brake rotors and pads on all four, and Two power steering pumps. That was it for me. My wife and I went and test drove a GMC 2500 and we were not impressed. No way were we going to look at Ford! We went a took a test drive in a Dodge.The trans was smooth and when you let off the peddle it did not free wheel like my Ford did. I felt much better control in the new Dodge than anything I have driven. I wanted to purchase a standard shift but the trans I test drove stopped that. I have read that the auto trans has issues. This has my worried. I took out the longest warranty.
