Summary:

Best truck there is

Faults:

This truck has had a history before I purchased it used, as a third owner. Original owner had numerous problems that dealers could not address or fix. Lemon Law applied.

It was taken by Chrysler back to the factory and upgraded to a 2000. Second owner had it for one year, and traded it in. I took it for a test drive for about an hour, and when I returned to the dealer, the papers and the loan were already taken care of.

Paid nothing to drive away!

Left manifold cracked just before three years.

Dealer replaced free of charge.

Three years later check engine light was only a hose on the fuel evaporation canister.

Hot rod mechanic fixed for free. Got a tune-up with all the extra touches for 250.00 No worries.

General Comments:

Gets up and goes.

More reliable than my old 68 Camper Special! (84-95)

Tires make a big difference in handling.

Cross tread was wiggly.

Five groove Capitol SUV tires are steady and sure.

I will never trade it or sell it. Will buy the new Hemi!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

Hey, it's a Ram dude!!!

Faults:

Gas mileage really sucks. 10 mpg really hurts.

It has all kinds of torque, but short of horsepower No real problem, just nickel & dime stuff. But hey, it's a hard working Ram!!!

General Comments:

Truck has more than enough heavy springs. Ride can be rough at times, but hey, it's Dodge Ram. If I wanted a nice ride, I'd buy car.

Next truck will have a diesel or a V-10

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
