2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 5.9L 360 V8
Poorly made truck that will make you poor very fast.
Both heads cracked at 110000; $4600 rebuilt.
Transmission cooked at 60000; $3200 rebuilt.
Read end pinion and crown at 110000; $1200 rebuilt.
Replaced radiator, heater core, power steering pump and water pump 3 times in 6 years.
Replaced both calipers twice (front).
Rear seal broke and leaked, so new rear brakes.
At 146k have to replace all ball joints and rotors (one is warped badly). $700 repair.
Seats ripped apart.
Unbelievable rust from door panels to undercarriage.
Replaced brake lines - the famous one behind the gas tank; $400.
Doors leak water when it's raining.
The truck rides bad on cold weather.
Slow motor on passenger side window.
Cracked the driver's side mirror when I used the heater.
This truck has a lot of quality control issues.
The only weight on the back is a tool box.
Terrible gas mileage (9 miles per gallon city, maybe 11 miles per gallon highway).
It is supposed to be heavy duty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You paid WAY too much for your repairs; my transmission overhaul was done at a reputable local transmission shop. Total cost: under $1,100! My ball joint replacement: $270! (Etc.) My truck has just under 200,000 miles on it, and these were done after 180,000 miles (not unexpected).

Maybe it is cheaper where you live, but here in the NJ-NY area, all repairs are expensive and overpriced. It is also hard to find quality and honest repairs.
