I wonder if someone can answer me where Dodge build 2500 with Cummins diesel. I'am about to buy a Mexcio build 2011.
Do they build them in different places, if so where ?

The 1500 Regular cab, 2500/3500/4500/5500 are built in Saltillo Mexico. The rest of the 1500s are built in Warren, Michigan(USA). IMO you will be getting a truck of higher build quality by getting one out of the Saltillo plant. Some very nice assembly equipment has been installed in Mexico in the last few years.

it makes me sad and angry to say this, but i have to agree, my 2500, and 3500 and now my 1500 have all been built in mexico and have been of stellar quality. when looking for my 1500, i actually looked for the made in mexico truck.

Hmmm...not me, if I had a choice of where my 2500 came from, Mexico or Warren, Michigan, it would have been the Warren plant hands down. Bring those jobs back to North America, Chrysler!!

Only if they're here legally will they be "stealin" any jobs. Most Mexicans I have worked around are very hard workers and still actually take pride in what they do..

What has been said that is raciest if you are here with out the proper paper work you DONT belong here period!!!!! Its called breaking the law. And everyone else said that the truck built in Mexico was better this is what has happened in our country if you speak the truth and it upsets someone then you are out the gate as raciest.:doh:

not arguing the legality of anyone's residence here. don't care about the situation either way. i just know that when you start referring to a "race" of people as a "them and they" then that is construed as racism. i don't know what a raceist is though. i just said it was turning into a racist thread. and the one that was most racist has been deleted further proving my point. so don't jump on a wagon if you don't know who is driving. and last thing don't forget who decided to go out of the country with their factories.

I don't know if i just got a bad truck but my truck was built in mexico and rear window had to be resealed carpet had to be replaced and after all that rear bumper paint chip off my blue truck and there was shine red paint under blue. body panels don't line up very well compared to the michigan trucks.

i agree, that is why i run cooper tires. this being said, i have found my trucks to be better than a few other guys in the my area with problems i have never experienced. maybe just luck, but with 3 trucks from mexico that have been superb, i think that is a pattern. some one want to start a new thread on this?
as for illegals, they dont belong here.

I believe Mexico is part of North America.

If Chrysler could lower the cost of a man hour in the US to be competitive with Honda/Toyota/Nissan they would bring the labor back. Unfortunately, if any of the big three decided to move all production to the US, vehicle prices would likely double.

If prices would double then how the hell can they sell Michigan made trucks beside Mexican assembled trucks? The way the imports make in America is by setting up factories in the lowest paying states in the country and with tax breaks and credits supplied by our fabulous government.

You are correct, cudase! Thanks for pointing out my geographic short-comings. :doh:

I guess I really meant to say U.S. and Canada.

Besides, by looking at my location, you can see I'm very partial to Warren, MI.
