1999 Dodge Ram Pickup Quad Cab SLT 5.2 from North America


Reliable and tough


Nothing but brake pads, oil changes and tuneups.

All these bad reviews puzzle me. Maybe they beat their vehicles up? Who knows?

I had this truck for 10 years and it still runs great.

If you do all the regular maintenance and don't beat the heck out of a truck, it will last and last.

Oh I forgot, the dash got a crack in it recently. But after 10 years, what can you expect.

General Comments:

Great truck, and will never own anything but a Dodge.

Decent truck


Good work truck. At 175k it's running well like it had 50k on it.

The heater core just went, but its almost summer so I'm not worried about that right now.

Besides getting oil changes and regular maintenance, it has been good to me.

I don't like all the rust for a 10 year old vehicle.

My driver's seat is worn badly, but the rest of interior is clean.

General Comments:

Maybe a new Dodge is worth it, but for a good work truck this Dodge will do. It is a good work truck for the money and will take a beating.

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 5.9 from North America



General Comments:

I have a 1999 Dodge ram 1500 Quad cab 5.9..125,000 miles, Honestly only major thing has been rear piston (?) bearing (that was a pretty penny @ $800) Other than that, wheel bearings and a speed senser..However, I think as of today, I may have a fuel filter or fuel pump problem.. You can't just go in and change the fuel filter out on these beasts like you can older trucks!..Fuel filter and pump is IN the gas tank.. If it's a pump, Im lookin at another $800 bucks!

Otherwise, my baby has been good to me and no rust, no cracking of dashboard etc.. shes still pretty even at 9 yrs old!!

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 from North America


Very poor!


Our 16 yr. old son, who is a good, but inexperienced driver, drives this pickup which has been at the Dodge dealer 6 times in the past three months for stalling problems. While the service manager is very nice and equally frustrated, they cannot determine what the exact problem is. Every time the vehicle is towed to them, it's there a week with no problems. We get it home and have to tow it back again. Dropped $760.00 to replace the brain - yesterday - and the vehicle stalled today in the middle of a busy intersection (again)!

I would trade it, but couldn't live with seeing some other person in the paper after an accident.

I also have a 1999 Ram with 150,000 plus miles. I was told to clean the "idler valve" located in the back of the throttle body. It was hard to get to without removing the throttle body. Carburetor cleaner worked well. Although I did not have the stalling problem commonly attributed to this truck it did idle a little smoother. Hope this helps.
