    I traded in my 04 taco for a 03 dodge 2500 Hemi and i cant stand this pos. Every time i drive this damn thing something else brakes. I got it in oct and so far i had to replace the rear brakes and lines from the frame back, the termostat,and the powersteering pump. I cant wait till i can afford to get another tacoma or a tundra. I should have listened to chris and everyone else that told me not to do it.

    Listen you're young-and ALL of us here had more than their share of lemons-I myself have owned a few money pits just because "I hadda have it" so count yourself in good company-anyone can see why ya wanted the Dodge-they really know how to dress a truck to hook you. That's all Dodge is-bling and schwing eye candy. You get the heck out from under that thing asap:)

    Dude, that is funny! I did almost the same thing back in 2006. I had a GREAT 2000 TRD. I thought I wanted something bigger so I bought a 2005 Hemi Quad Cab 4X4. The truck was a actually great truck. The downside...a month later gas hit $4/gal. I did some exhaust work and intake work and got up to 18MPG on the hwy. I kept it a year, traded it in on a beater 2-door Tahoe and it took me almost 2 years to find the right replacement Tacoma (a 2001 just like my old 2000). Good luck dude, you can work your way back into a Tacoma!

    Even the cummins are junk. The motor is great but the rest of the truck is shit. My friend has one and puts a new front end on it every year. The trans is the worst part of my truck. I doesnt want to shift when i want it to. At least i have a warrenty to cover most of the shit that brakes.

    I cant wait to get back into a toyota!

    Every manufacturer will always put out a few lemons...Toyota is no different.

    I bet you would be surprised to see how many super-high mileage Cummins trucks there are out there...300, 400, 500....700k...
