2001 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT Laramie 8.0 V10 from North America
1 year of beatings.. Still runs good!!
Had this truck for exactly 1 year, and only just regular oil changes are needed. No problems after a year of beating on this truck.
Got on heck of a deal on this V10 QC 2 WD. The previous owner had some warranty issues when new, that the dealer could not remedy. The owner sued Chrysler and they bought it back under Ca lemon law, and it was sold at auction. I'm not sure what was the original problem, but I took a very "calculated" risk and bought this truck. I figured that was over 150,000 miles ago, and someone in their right mind could fix it??
Knock on wood after 5000 miles and a long winter, hot summer, and countless beatings, this truck has been very good. My 2.4 little Nissan was a far cry when it comes to reliability, power, room, and comfort. I love this truck! 305 HP and 450ft torque in a gasser? That's roughly the same power as a non-H.O. Cummins, but without the turbo lag. Power is instant with the V10. Time will tell if I truly have a lemon or not, but I will still be reluctant to sell this odd ball V10 Dodge dreamed of.
The only caveat with these trucks is the gas MPG... But hey, it will tow a house if needed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
