1998 Dodge Ram SS/T 5.9 from North America
I'm in love with my truck
The transmission required an overhaul (not rebuild!) at 91,000 miles. This included: speed sensor, governor, overdrive solenoid, front pump bearings and input shaft & seals; I also put in a mild performance torque converter and shift kit.
Replaced speed sensor in left rear wheel hub at 90,000 miles.
Easily the best truck (and probably best auto, period) I've ever owned!
With mild performance modifications it accelerates fast and has a top end around 150 mph.
Stock suspension, wheels and tires are beyond adequate and handling is more like a sports car that a 1/2 ton truck.
The interior is very comfortable and the stock Infinity Premium sound system approaches audiophile quality.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Steven - Liked your comment on the Ram SS/T - I also have one a '98 white w/blue stripes. It has 65,000 on it now - bought it with 11,000 and have had no problems except battery replacement and new Goodyear II's at 60,000. I agree it is a fun and good looking truck for the money and the stereo is excellent. I get lots of comments on it and my girlfriend liked it so much she sold her 2001 Toyota RAV 4 and now drives the truck most of the time. She loves the sound and power. My best mileage so far has been about 20 per gallon - which isn't bad for a full sized truck with some power!
Take care. Jesse.
