  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Dodge? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Dodge Diplomat? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Diplomat’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Diplomat is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
