I have a 07 6.7 with auto. Like any vehicle some will have issues and others won't. I am completly stock and have 57,000+miles. My only problem was a water pump leak and that was covered by warrantee. I get 19+ mpg on freeway and 14.5 in city type driving. My every day weight with tools is 7700lbs, so I am not "empty" weight wise. Pulling my 5th wheel, 12,000lbs I get 10+ mpg when towing thru the mountains and will get 13+ on the flats. A lot of my driving is short drives stop and go right here on the ranch, but on the road I tend to have a heavy foot
. Never have seen the "plug dpf" on the overhead warning.
Bottom line is I have no complaints
