Post Possible Purchase

So I am looking at purchasing a 03-09 Turbo Deisel soon and wanted to know what I should be staying away from.

It is going to be a daily driver, so I will be making changes to obtain good gas mileage. I don't tow a whole lot, but could tow a 5th wheel camper a couple times a year and my pops would use it to tow a large box trailer.

I currently have a Dodge Avenger that I am going to trade in. I really just want to know what to stay away from and what to search for. Thanks in advance.

unless you need to have a newer vehicle stick to the 5.9 cummins. the 6.7 just are terrible on fuel. whereas the 5.9 is still an amazingly dependable motor. get yourself a 06 or 07 5.9. its got the newer body style. thats my recommendation to you
