    What would hold it's value better/longer....a Dodge Ram 1500 or a Nissan Titan?

      I would say a Dodge Ram, but that's only because I'm not too familiar with Nissan vehicles.

        I would definitely go with the Dodge Ram. It has a long standing history of being a tough and reliable truck. I have a few different models and was impressed with each one. I am not a Dodge guy. But I think Dodge would be a good choice.

      I attended a computer diagnostic class several years ago, trouble shooting automotive systems.  When we got to the Dodge system the instructor told us to look up dodge in the dictionary.  Something along the lines of 'to avoid'.
      I tend to agree.

    Funny Misha.

    I'm finding that there's not a whole lot of info on the Titan out there.

    LOL go to edmunds or kbb, you will find the data there. But I swear civic will hold the value better than any of those smile

    Hey Wendi,

    How are you? I'm not truck guru, but have owned one. It was a Ford.

    Your comparison of Dodge vs. Nissan?

    I would say go with Dodge. The "Titan" has been around as long as Dodge Ram has been. smile

    Style +Price+quality=longevity I would recommend a Nissan TITAN. I am a luxury and sports car person and even I know a bargain if you take care of it. For a budget minded person I would say F-150 with basic package. I had a 1986 Ford Ranger "S" and I loved it. I paid $6,800 cash new and sold it for $5K in mint shape in 1993. I also had a Nissan. I thoroughly liked the dependabilty and styling and power. Hope it helps,From someone who has been on those shoes. I now have a GTI/GDI and love them....

      I am not a Ford person (Found On Road Dead!) but my mother has had an F150 for about 9 years and, other than a few minor problems, it has been a champ. Annoyingly.

      To answer your specific question, though, I would probably say the Dodge. I heard there were some issues with the front suspension on the Titan from a few mechanics I know. As earnest said, check the recall history! Also, if you are getting a car and thinking primarily of whether it will hold it's value, you may want to consider something else. Something you love that is reliable is a much better starting point in searching for a car that you want than something that you can resell later.

    Go with a Ford 250-3/4 ton. Its a real truck!  Try and get the 4.6 liter,  good on gas and plenty of power!

      Read the recall history on both of them before you spend a dime! smile There are recall links on my newest car site.

    Remember the changes in who is making who's cars too! Also covered in my car hubs coincidently!
    It is no good buying an old make you love only to find it is now made in India and you mechanic has never worked on those strange under-licence gearboxes or whatever. See who is now making what you are buying. For example If you like Nissan you better like the other makers they are now married too. Ditto for the GM product or even Ford.

      The Dodge even with the smallest motor 3.7 litre V6 is a lot bigger truck than the Nissan. The Dodge will have a lot better ride than the Nissan, the Nissan cheaper to own and service. Really they are almost different markets.
