1996 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT Laramie 5.9 (360cid) from North America
Quality feel, extremely reliable and bulletproof
Right front axle seal had to be replaced under warranty at 40,000 miles due to severe cold weather (N. Alaska), had rendered the old seal cracked and leaking. That's what -50 degrees does!
Had line from tranny to the transmission fluid cooler was replaced as it was leaking, about $50.
This truck is bulletproof. I haul a 200 gallon tank of water several times a week in the back, and it hardly feels like it has a load - that's 1600lbs. It has a solid feel, quiet ride, excellent stock stereo (Infinity cassette-CD) and all the electric parts have never had a problem, ie., windows, locks, power mirrors, cruise, ABS etc.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
