    Who's giving it a bad name? Obviously someone that knows very little.

    Is this one of them stories like this? My friend at works friends cousin said his brothers girls friends father had one and it was POS.

    Nothings wrong with them. I wouldn't own one if they were not the best all around truck, engine & trans combos.

    Yep, there are no complaints coming from here. I absolutely love my DMax and my Allison.

    Hey, take it easy now. All the diesel engines out there are good, in one way or another.:)

    I hear from a lot of people that the cummins is "all around the best diesel" but a Dmax is just as good and you will never find a better tranny behind anything

    The only "negative" I've ever heard was from people like me who wanted one, but only put 6k per year on the truck and towed maybe half a dozen times all year so couldn't justify the extra cost to She Who Must Be Obeyed.

    I musta got lucky, mine asked me "why did you wait so long" (after she saw the first fuel bill). Then again I put close to 30k per year on a truck
