2005 - Dodge Ram 1500 on 2040-cars
Lockbourne, Ohio, United States
Up for auction is my 2005 Dodge Ram Daytona 4x4 crew cab with 76,900 miles. The Truck has the 5.7 Hemi and is equipped with a automatic transmission. The truck has never been in an accident, and is all original minus the tinted windows. I've owned the truck over the past 3 years, but due to working further away now from home, I am looking to downgrade to something with better gas mileage. The truck will do 17.6 mpg on the highway, and about 14.8 around town. I did remove the bottom valance that is below the fog lights which you will see in some of the pictures due to ground clearance concerns. The tailgate does show some slight surface rust below the paint, as well as the rear bumper. Someone had backed into the bumper at some point, and it is pushed in slightly, which is where some of the surface rust has came through. You can see the area I'm talking about in one of the pictures. The tires are the original tires that were one it when I purchased the truck. I had planned on replacing them late next year. They still have tread and are nowhere near bald, thus why I figured they'd be good for at least another year for me. Also planned on doing the breaks prior to winter. There is no squeal, but like to keep up on things before they get out of hand. If you would like to see the truck prior to bidding, please don't hesitate to contact me to work out a time for you to view the truck. I know if it were me, I'd like to see what I'm bidding on before doing so, and completely understand you wanting to do the same. Also gives you a chance to see if this truck is for you. It does get a lot of looks around town, especially after being detailed. The orange is an amazing color, and honestly my personal favorite of any vehicle color. Payment is due within 3 days of Auction end, and must be either made via certified cashiers check, Cash, or Money Transfer. No personal checks please. I do own the truck outright, and have title in hand. Please feel free to call me at 3 3 zero - seven 0 5- seven one 7 6 if you have any additional questions. Thank you and good luck bidding!

It's fascinating the way that one change to a complex system can have all sorts of unintended consequences. For instance, there are hundreds of new Chrysler Town and County and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans built in Windsor, Ontario, sitting in lots on the Detroit waterfront because of the energy boom in the Bakken oil field in the northern US and parts of Canada.
The huge amount of crude oil coming from these sites mostly use freight trains for transport, and that supply boom has resulted in a shortage of railcars to carry other goods. According to The Windsor Star, North American crude oil transport by train has gone from 9,500 carloads in 2008 to 434,032 carloads in 2013. Making matters worse, some North American rail infrastructure is still damaged because of this year's harsh winter, and that's slowing things down even further.
Chrysler admits to The Star that it has had some delivery delays due to the freight train shortage. In the meantime, it's using more trucks to deliver its vehicles. Trucking is a far less economical solution, partially because a train can carry so many more units at one time, but alternatives are slim. The Windsor plant alone has a deal for 33 trucks to distribute the minivans around Canada and the Midwestern US.
As a reporter covering an auto show, the one opportunity you never want to miss is going to the Sergio Marchionne press briefing.
"This undertaking to bring Alfa back is a one-shot deal... We are not going to do this twice."
There just aren't that many real characters left in the auto industry. Marchionne, who sits atop both Chrysler and Fiat, is not only one of the smartest execs in the business, but also the most frank. Herein, a sample of the quotable always-sweatered executive:
Chrysler has announced a recall covering 349,442 vehicles due to ignition switches that can either become stuck or move without warning. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2008 model year, and were built before May 12, 2008.
The automaker has learned that ignition keys on some vehicles "may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position during engine-startup," the company said in a statement. Additionally, "an ignition key may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position and may inadvertently move through the 'ON' position to 'ACCESSORY' or 'OFF.'"
Chrysler says it is unaware of any related injuries, and notes that while reduced braking, engine or steering power is possible in such instances, the airbags are not affected. The later stands in contrast to General Motors' recent rash of high-profile recalls, and it's an important distinction that Chrysler (understandably) felt necessary to call out in bold print in its press release.
