1996 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT 2500 8.0/3.54gears from North America
Junk times five
Steering column replaced 5 times.
Rear seal replaced 2 times.
Engine sounded like a hand full of BB's dropped into it at 55mph and 1750rpm, never fixed.
Seats wore out and were replaced.
Front-end had clunks, Dodge said it was an engineering fault and they could put a 1 ton front end in it at my cost.
Fuel pump in the fuel tank went out 4 times.
Had the truck in the Dodge dealership 65 times in 11 months. Sold the truck back to another Dodge dealership.
Ron Tonkin in Portland never did figure out half the problems. Ended up driving 330 miles round trip to get work done on it the last couple times.
Reading these posts Dodge has to know they have big problems and don't seem to care about fixing them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

65 times in 11 months. Hard to believe. Ever hear of a lemon law?
Sry... just don't buy your assessment.

I have a Dodge Ram 1500 with a 3.9 liter V6, and when I use a top end gear and let the RPM's fall, and then step on it, the engine sounds like a clanking case of beer bottles. It's pretty funny because I can drive around town and tap the gas and it sounds like someone is shaking a case of beer, which would sound similar to someone pouring BB's into an engine I guess.
