RE: Truck Reviews from up North

OK then tell me why did Ford change their commercial from the F-150 is the highest selling truck. To F-Series are the highest selling trucks? I posted a link showing that all F-Series are included. Please post a link showing I am wrong and I will be more than happy to retract my post. Don

RE: Truck Reviews from up North

Did anyone bother to read the **** article? ON EDIT: to exclude Lessmore, feel better now buddy? Under the half ton truck segment it said this " Of course I have to mention what is missing from the list. Ford. The leader in half-ton Canadian truck sales choose not to compete. Despite having entered trucks in every other Truck King competition since 2006 this year they declined. No specific reason was given and while I certainly have my own theories as to why, I won’t speculate. They were invited – they said no – we continued on without them." As for Ford being number one in truck sales. Well it's all in how you say it and Ford says "Ford F-Series trucks are the number one selling truck in America. It should be noted that all trucks built by Ford are labeled F-Series. Problem is they are the only ones selling 650 and 750 trucks and they add those trucks into their numbers. "The Ford F-Series is a series of light-duty trucks and medium-duty trucks (Class 2-7) that have been marketed and manufactured by Ford Motor Company since 1948. While most variants of the F-Series trucks are full-size pickup trucks, the F-Series also includes chassis cab trucks and commercial vehicles. The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since 1981 and the best-selling pickup since 1977. It is also the best selling vehicle in Canada." LINK Smart marketing and since most people are to lazy to do any real research for themselves it has worked out very well for Ford. Funny when you ask the Reps at the Auto Shows about this they just look at you all dumbfounded and say they are not aware of that or just walk away from you. LOL Again very very smart of Ford and a big thumbs up for having the best marketing team bar none! They build a great truck just like their competitors do. Don

RE: Super Duty #1 stolen truck

Well that sounds good until you add in the Chevy numbers! Do that then see how the math adds up. You need to look at the 2015 sales numbers as that is the truck they are talking about not 2013. We had more GM vehicles stolen in my area then any other vehicle. One reason was the ease at which they could be stolen as compaired to a Ford or Chrysler vehicle. Not sure how the numbers pan out anymore as I no longer drive wrecker in the evenings. Haven't done that for a long time now. Don

RE: Fiat-Chrysler caught cheating on diesel emmissions

I think the arrogance is a foreign thing. I have worked for European companies. Pretty common. Say what? So GM knowing they had issues with their ignition switches for years, refusing and lying to the Government is not arrogance? Ford is no better either and yes so is FCA. But it is not a foreign thing. I will give you this, you don't make statements like "There is nothing in common between the VW reality and what we are describing here," he said. It's "absolute nonsense" to suggest so, he said, and anyone who disagreed with him is "smoking illegal material." Marchionne insisted that Fiat Chrysler has been forthright." and come off as arrogant. He reminds me of our new President in that he speaks before he thinks! Don

RE: Fiat-Chrysler caught cheating on diesel emmissions

This is the best article I've seen yet explaining what is going on. Jalopnik It really is not as deceptive as VW. More a miscommunication that will need to be explained. One thing that I wish they'd look into also. Our EGR systems clog up extremely fast 15-20K and sensors and valve need to be cleaned. Thanks for the links, I hope this is all just a miscommunication. I can't believe they would be dumb enough to keep a "cheat" in these vehicles after VW got busted.

RE: Fiat-Chrysler caught cheating on diesel emmissions

Yep was only a matter of time, for me I'll take whatever FCA gives me and keep my truck. This only affects a small number of Ram and Jeeps so it should be able to be resolved with a flash to remove the offending code, a pay out to owners for the loss of fuel mileage and or buy back similar to VW's and a nice big fine. IMO the person or persons that authorized the code should be fired, and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. But that won't happen so oh well.

RE: F.B.I. Arrests Volkswagen Executive

I don't believe the current owners have a choice. They will not be able to renew registration due to non-compliance to US standards. Actually, they will be able to register it according to the settlement terms. VW is paying a large fine to "pay for" their over-emissions for the approx. 15% of people who choose to keep the cars. If they don't reach the 85% mark, they have to pay more depending on whatever the percentage is. They are bribing us to turn in our cars so they don't have to pay more fines. The payout is so good that even though it is the best car I've ever owned it would be stupid to not sell it back. With 112K on it, the market value would be much less than half of the $ I will get by turning it in. Not completely true, only the 2.0 can renew the vehicle registration. "What vehicles are covered under the consent decree? The consent decree covers all 2.0L diesel vehicles manufactured by Volkswagen and Audi between 2009 and 2015. These include: VW Jetta Sport Wagen (MY 2009 - 2014) Audi A3 (MY 2010 - 2013, 2015) VW Beetle (MY 2013 - 2015) VW Golf (MY 2010 - 2015) VW Jetta (MY 2009 - 2015) VW Passat (MY 2012 - 2015) VVW Golf Sport Wagen (MY 2015) The consent decree does not cover 3.0L diesel vehicles manufactured by Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche that the governments allege are also equipped with defeat devices. These vehicles will be addressed later." note this is for California not sure how this affects other states. Note this is from Dec.16, 2016 LINK For those who say it's a great vehicle and makes great mileage....well no kidding they turned off the emissions so it could make that mileage. I owned a tdi Jetta and loved it. Was it flawless? No, no it wasn't. Was it a great car? Yes, yes it was and if I was not working for FCA I would own another tdi in a minute! Don

RE: Ram moving back across the border?

As a CEO working with reduced profits what would you cut first? Wages? Salaries? R&D? Stockholder returns? Management pay would be the first place to start! The real workers have not had any real pay raises for over ten years and some have had their pay cut. Just not the clowns that have caused this problem. As I posted above you can't take hundreds of millions off the top and think you are going to remain profitable and that is just what is happening to American companies now. Without good paying middle class jobs we are not going to have sustained growth and the economy will (not might) tank again! Or maybe it's the Russian's fault! Don

RE: Ram moving back across the border?

If that's the case, why are so many American corporations moving operations to other countries? Does it cost the same to make a Ram HD in Mexico as it does in the US? Cheaper labor, less worker safety, less restrictions on pollution, lower tax rates... All translate to higher wages for the girls and boys at the top! If you look at the top executives pay, bonuses and benefits and compare to the hourly workers they cost a whole lot more to have around. But when they screw up and get the boot they jump out with their golden parachutes! :M Mot of the time costing workers jobs to pay for them. I'm all for fixing the trade BS and the wall but there are other things to be fixed also. BTW I voted Trump. Don

RE: Ram moving back across the border?

FISH, want to do a group purchase with me? Negative Ghost Rider.... Ram is still a foreign brand. Fish you should get a job as a news reporter. Just like them you think if you keep repeating the same lies over and over it will become true. But here is a fact, lies will never come true no matter how hard you try and spin them. Don

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

You should get your truck and your dryer fixed (if a gas dryer) ;). Yes DPF diesels no longer smell like the diesels of old but they sure as heck do not smell like air nor does your dryer! Both will kill you if you breath it for too long. Don

RE: Ford F150 diesel

Nissan was co-funding the Cummins engine development program way before Fred was put at the helm at Nissan but I'm sure he ensured the cummins was put under the hood with the gimmick badge on the front fender. I think the biggest road block for Nissan is it's a foreign brand truck and most truck owners are very conservative and prefer domestic brands. Having said that most HD ram owners don't even know their truck is made in Mexico and that ram is now a foreign brand. Just when I thought you had pulled your head out of your backside you post this gibberish :R 1, DamnLire paid for that engine as it was commissioned for the Ram 1500. When they walked away from it Cummins sued them and got paid for all of the RD work! Nissan may have paid to bring it up to the currant emission standards but the original 5.0 was designed for the Ram 1500. Fuel prices scraped that idea. 2, Most Americans could give a rats behind where anything is built. 3, FCA yes is run by a Italian controlled multinational corporation but it is still considered an American Car Company. FCA has it's headquarters in Auburn Hills Mich not Italy. 4, If ANY buyer can not figure out where their vehicle is made then maybe they should not hold a drivers license! LINK Don

RE: Ford F150 diesel

Well I bet Fred Diaz had 100% to do with Nissan going with the Cummins. Fred's pitch would have been go with the Cummins 5.0 you will sell a ton of them just look at Ram. Well that's not working out to well for them. You can get a more capable diesel pick up from any of the big three at the same cost and make the same fuel economy to boot. I don't understand why the big boys didn't go with an in house diesel other then Fred selling them on the Cummins. Don

RE: F150 transmission

saw in a magazine that ford and gm joined forces and the two built a 10 speed tranny. "Shared" design with some common parts, but still unique. Each company manufactures their own version. Companies legally can develop hardware together as long as they part ways to manufacture and tune it, as GM and Ford say they will. LINK One did the 9 speed and the other did the 10 as a side note Ford and GM are not strangers in the transmission arena, they teamed up on their six speeds also.

RE: Ford F150 diesel

OK....but I posted this about two years ago and just posted spy photos of the 3.0 diesel f-150 about two or three months ago along with a story saying Ford said the baby diesel is a go for 2018.And...................? This is old news is all. FCA built a half ton truck with a small diesel and GM and Ford had to fallow suit. GM decided to put their offing in a smaller truck 1/3 ton if you will :@ but I bet they will have a full sized diesel pickup soon. With Fords 10 speed and a 3.0 diesel they will once again be the MPG King. Had FCA not went with the VM and used the 5.0 Cummins Ford and GM would not have bothered with a small diesel. The 5.0 is not a fuel efficient diesel as Nissan has found out. Ford would still be pushing the Ecoboost as their fuel efficient engine (not saying it is not either). FCA's 2017 3.0 is tied up in the EPA 2017 testing while GM's mini D-Max has gotten the green light. I'm sure the Feds are looking at the Ecodiesel a lot closer do to the recent claims of cheating in some Cummins trucks and 2014-2016 Eco's. Time will tell how this plays out. Don

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

. . . you have to admit this is not one of GM's proudest designs! Kinda like the gas tanks on the 1970's C/K trucks.x2. One of my first jobs was delivering auto parts in a 1972 C10. I used to wonder what all that sloshing noise was inside the cab. About 2 months into the job I was looking for something I dropped behind the seat. Took a peek and couldn't help but notice that gas tank. Even as a naive teenager, back before auto safety was a big deal, my first thought was WTF?! The tanks on 1973 and newer at least were mounted on the right side of the truck and on the outside of the frame. If you got hit they would rupture spilling gas. Even the head engineer for the truck division refused to allow his family to drive in one. But he didn't have a problem letting his customers drive them! This came out in a lawsuit filed by the family of a teenage boy that lost his life in one of the trucks. When questioned under oath he admitted that he would not let his family members drive one of those trucks and broke down on the stand. It was very powerful and along with internal memos cost GM a boat load of money. As far as these tanks having been around for a while now. There were plenty of post about it when they first came out. Just now it looks like they are even lower then the previous years. Don

RE: I think I goofed.

What's the worst case scenario if I pull as is? I do have a good equalizer and anti sway system. I'm sure it's been answered by now but sway is not the issue here it is being able to efficiently move the weight down the road. You bought a very large grocery geter. Re-gear to a 3.92 or something close to that so if you move up to a larger RV you will still be good. Would a 3.55 work, for that size TT yep but if you are shelling out the cash do it right the first time. BTW to the guys saying the truck is lacking something like coolers or whatever, the OP has said the truck has the factory tow package but has 3.08 gears. The thing that does not sound right is the gear ratio! If you ordered the tow package back then didn't the ratio get upgraded to 3.73's or something like that. BTW those would be a bad gear for your truck either. Point is the tow package gives you HD alt., cooling, engine/trans coolers and gear upgread. Not a Ford guy anymore but maybe the truck was special ordered with the 3.08 rear end? Don

RE: 2017 GMC/Chevy DEF tank!

Well there wouldn't be any warranty claims as GM or any manufacture for that matter does not cover damage from an accident or going off road! Sorry this is just plain dumb! The up side is the aftermarket manufactures are all ready making skid plates for it! Probably a GM managment employee to boot lol. :W Even with step bars you are not going off road in a GM/Chevy Duramax! Come on you have to admit this is not one of GM's proudest designs! Kinda like the gas tanks on the 1970's C/K trucks. http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o790/Dtropnevad/s-l1600_zps9npguue0.jpg height=500 width=650
