Who has the most reliable factory automatic transmission?
Well, we are probably a few years out on replacing our trusty 13 year old F250.
The wife has never liked the 6spd and refuses to buy another one. I don't mind it, but towing with it, which is what we do is a bit tedious.
At this point we are leaning towards a Dmax Allison combo even though I really hate the truck attached to it.
I know the Allison is marketed well and I personally know of no failures myself although I am sure they have had their share.
I know the 2003 up Dodge autos have really improved over the 90s era Dodge autos.
I know the early Superduty auto trans was complete crap stock which is why I specifically looked for a 6spd at the time.
The reason I ask factory reliability is, I refuse to buy a truck and then have to sink thousands of dollars into a trans to make it tow worthy. That complete crap to me.
So, routine maintenance aside, who has the best transmission from say 2005 on?
2006 F350 Lariat, 6.0 PSD CC LB 4X4. 100k miles.
Wix coolant filter, Dynomax Ultraflow exhaust, cat mod, Edge Insight CS/with EGT. Sinister EGR delete, EGR cooler delete, up pipe. Looney Tune via SCT X4. S&B Intake.
