#2418 of 7485 Quality History of Dodge
Jun 20, 2003 (9:18 am)
I've owned several Dodge vehicles over the years and I've been pleased with the quality of all of them. Here are some of the ones I've owned.
65 Dodge Window Van (SWB)
72 Dodge Dart Swinger
78 Dodge Magnum
81 Dodge Pickup (SWB)
85 Dodge Van (SWB)
94 Dodge Van (SWB)
2003 Dodge Dakota Pickup (I've still got it.)
I kept the 72 Dart 9 years and had almost no problems with it. I put about 87,000 miles on it.
I kept the 85 Dodge Van 9 years and put 108,000 miles on it. It still had the original brake pads on it when I sold it. The only repair, other than routine maintenance items, was a new fuel pump at about 103,000.
The only reason I got rid of the 94 Dodge Van after 2 years was because a job change which required a vehicle with 4 wheel drive and my Dodge van had only rear wheel drive.
I'm currently driving a 2003 Dodge Dakota with the 4.7 Liter V-8. I like it a lot. It drives and handles like a sports car compared to the 96 Chevy K-150 4x4 PU that I used to drive.
I've also owned other vehicles. Here are a few of those.
78 Ford LTD
88 Olds Cutlass Supreme
89 Mercury Grand Marquis
94 Jeep Grand Cherokee (I still own it)
96 Chevy K-150 4x4 Pickup (extended cab)
You can see that over the past 30+ years I've owned a variety of vehicles (mostly American made). I wouldn't say that any of them was a lemon or gave me a lot of problems. The Dodge vehicles, IMO, were at least as good as the other vehicles and I tended to keep the Dodge vehicles longer. I'm currently thinking of selling the 94 Grand Cherokee which I bought new and I'm thinking of buying a Chrysler minivan, perhaps the Voyager LX Popular.
Just thought I'd give you my view of Dodge vehicles.

If I bought a Sedway, with my luck, I'd probably fall off.

Didn't somebody important do that recently?? Who would've thunk landing on a carrier would be easier??

Independent research reveals that both Honda Odysseys and DC vans parked outdoor in Maryland are wet right now. Advantage..... Both

More independent research reveals that both Honda Odysseys and DCC vans parked outside in Maryland are now dry. Yet again another similarity between two fine vans.

When they offer Navigation system on the T&C, then we can say both vans may be similar.
Right now the only other van with NAV is the Sienna.

Thebif question would be whether the Sienna is wet ir dry, wouldn't it?
#2426 of 7485 Sir, that is an excellent question
Jun 24, 2003 (2:49 am)
Siennas parked outside in Maryland would be dry right now.
Kia Sedonas are also dry.
#2427 of 7485 I have a question

If you have a T & C and you leave the door open overnight and it rains how much water does it hold?
