1990 Dodge D150 5.2 Liter 318 V8 from North America
Very reliable truck with good power to go with it
Both the upper and lower ball joints on the passenger side had to be replaced a few months back.
Speed sensor on transmission was causing poor performance and caused the speedometer to not work.
Minor electrical problems with the lights, but they were easily fixed.
Anti lock brakes light is on, my mechanic tried to save me some money by not replacing it. He said it's a $300 repair for some box, brakes work fine though, so I haven't bothered.
All other things were just your basic maintenance (tires, oil, etc).
This truck is incredibly reliable from what I've experienced with it. When we got it, the previous owner said it had warm starting problems and a bad ball joint. I popped a new battery in and the starting problem is gone and as for the ball joints, we drove it for months without any problems and recently had both on that side replaced. Also, when we first got it, the performance was horrible, but then the mechanic told us it had a bad speed sensor, now it runs like a beast. Not the fastest, but certainly has the power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
