2007 Nissan Titan

The years to avoid on this model would be 2004-2006. These models had tremendous issues with their rear differentials leaking that were so bad that they needed to be replaced all together. 2005 has to be one of the worst years of this model because they also had numerous consumer complaints about the drivetrain. By 2007 Nissan was able to get these issues resolved.

2009 Mitsubishi Raider LS

Debuted in 2005, the Mitsubishi Raider was based mostly on the large Dodge Dakota. The name was also recycled from the Dodge Raider SUV. Unfortunately that truck wasn’t as successful as other trucks in the market at that time, even though it is one of the only ones that has very little consumer complaints.

2006 Ford Ranger

Don’t let the size of the Ford Ranger fool you. This beauty can haul wood/dirt and can tow more than 5,500 pounds! The low price and durability of the truck is considered two main advantages to purchasing this vehicle. Although the last Ford Ranger to be produced was in December 2011, it is coming back in 2019!

2004 Ford F-150

Although it may seem that this year had many complaints for this model, the majority of those complaints had to do about the side windows not rolling up. Compared to the 2007 model which has fewer complaints but those complaints were about engine problems. This is one case where it pays off to do your research and read the complaints because although one may have more than the other, it doesn’t mean that the problem is as big as the one with fewer complaints which in this care is very costly to replace.

2007 Dodge Ram 1500

Efficiency was clearly on the minds from the Dodge Manufactures this year. Remote Start and an Electronic Stability Program became options for the Ram truck this year refining the stresses of safety and efficiency. Reduced drag brake calipers and low rolling resistance tires were also added for fuel efficiency. They clearly took the steps and made changes to the Ram to make it more efficient for its customers!
