The Diesel Place is awesome! I have never been on a forum where the people are so willing to just plain help out no matter how inane the question may be, and believe me I can come up with some doozies! The guys on this forum are awesome! A true information store with genuinely good people. Thanks and keep up the outstanding work!
Most of the other sites are inhabited by those that wish they had a DMAX. Over the years I've had many trucks manufactured by the "others". If you have a poor experience keep your mouth shut an MOVE ON! For the rest of us we our best educated choice and mine is made.
Frankly I think some of these outrageous claims as to poor manufacture are bogus and are made by "plants" at the various forums. Its easy to trash things when you have the anonimity of the Internet. I have not experienced any of the repetitive issues that are raised re DMAX. The value in the Dieselplace is that we have a diversity of opinion and experience that serves us all well. My sense is that we aren't interested in trashing the others but in making ours better. My .02

I suppose that when you deal with folks like the one above, you have to expect less than meaninful intelligent conversation.
I was a sponsor over there when I worked for a Ford Dealership. It was a great site for PSD owners, but seems to have been a bit overwhelmed with the number of members. Keep in mind that there are 3 to 4 times as many PSD's out there as Dmax's.....
There are good and bad points to every brand. The rumors many hear about the 6L PSD are similar to what Ford owners heard about the Dmax when it came out.
