Right before he passed away my father bought a brand new Ram pickup with the Pentastar V6. Amazing gas mileage for a full-size pickup, an honest 26mpg as I recall. As for the 2.7, well, when I was working as a service writer I had to give the bad news to way too many folks that their Mopar needed an engine. Most were abandoned or the customer hauled them in for scrap.

Oh yeah. The 2.7 is a bit of a turd. Though to be totally fair, it was just really sensitive. I've seen a couple that weren't dogged, and got regular oil changes (and I mean religiously), and they were just peachy. I honestly wouldn't want one for myself though lol.
