1997 Dodge Ram Pickup Conqueror 3.9 gasoline from North America
A low performance gem
Grille is falling off.
Signal light broke on its own.
Serpentine belt showed wear at 12,000 km.
Cigarette lighter surges and fails to work. I changed the fuse 3 times but it just keeps blowing up.
Windows are incredibly hard to roll up or down.
Seat fails to flip forward when it is pulled on.
Clutch groans and squeaks.
Radio cuts out when I touch any of the heater controls, and I have to knock on those controls repeatedly to get the radio to come back on.
This truck has absolutely no power in the high end. I can get this truck moving very quickly but the truck fails to perform in the high-speed circuit.
I have to rev the truck up very high just to get it going in low gear.
This truck idles erratic, but stalls out only when starting off in low gear.
The truck whines when moving in reverse.
Truck won't do 100 km/h when fighting a wind. I have to use 4th gear just to keep the truck moving at a steady speed.
The truck rides nice and looks very good, as I keep it highly polished. The chrome rims get noticed quite well and the pin stripes do wonders for this trucks image.
This truck basically takes me from place to place without impressing me, since there is no power. I suggest a bigger motor and different gear train would do this truck some good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
