2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4.7
Too many things to list. I spent $10,000 in repairs between 2010 and 2012, including a new engine and PCM (the truck was severely neglected by the previous owners). Since then it has not needed anything major.
The fan stopped blowing air at 185,000. The hinges on the little door that opens and closes for cabin/outside return air broke and fell flat against the return hole for the blower. It's a fairly common problem with the 2006 model. Options were to replace the entire HVAC return duct system with an updated one, or smash the little door and pull it out piece by piece, and let the truck pull both in and outside air all the time. That brittle plastic door crumbled in my hands and fell right out of there.
The passenger side low beam went out at 192,000. It's another common issue with these trucks. You can either spend $1000 on a new computer, or just splice the wire in with the driver's side low beam. Again, I took the cheaper route.
Also replaced the CV axles at 192,000 They cost ~$50 and literally take 10 minutes to install.
This is a 4 door long bed 4x4 model. Big heavy truck with a tiny engine wasn't the best design in my opinion.
I've towed a dual axle trailer with ~5500lbs on it and the truck pulled it pretty easy, but on the highway my speed maxes out at about 65 mph. on flat stretches.
I use the truck off road a lot and it can take a beating; the suspension is holding up well.
It steers like a cruise ship. Every low speed turn you can hear the front tires squeal and cry.
Not a speck of rust on the frame or anywhere underneath, which is surprising since the truck's from New York.
It's not the worst vehicle I've ever owned, but it's certainly close. You can't expect too much from a high mileage vehicle like this, so I'm not really complaining.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
