2005 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT 5.7 V8 from North America
A Very Good Truck That Begs To Be Used
Nothing So Far, but Some Scratches In The Paint From Normal Work Ware.
This truck was bought to be a work horse, and a work horse it is. The truck has been put through it's paces as it has hauled trailers, been loaded with stone and other materials, and has often been off road.
It is a four door truck and I have had six adults inside of it and still had room. Many would not like the cloth seats or plastic dash, but it makes the vehicle easy to clean. Since the truck wasn't special ordered it does not have a CD player, which I would like to have. The AC is excellent and the sound system is wonderful.
It has the 5.7 Liter Hemi which I have yet to have a problem with. With lighter trailers you would not know you even had a trailer on. Even weighted down, the 5.7 still has good get up and go. Gas mileage is 15 mpg not towing and 13 mpg with a trailer. Not good, but with the power this truck puts out it levels the low gas mileage out.
The truck is sharp looking in a silver paint job with chrome wheels and bumbers.
I have scratched the truck, but other than that it looks very imposing.
This truck is a good truck for people who will use it to its full potential, but other than that I would not get this truck (or any other full sized truck) if you are not going to use the truck for what it was made to do...Work!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your truck may beg to be used, mine begs to get out of a service bay. If your pickup runs long enough for you to enjoy it, don't count your blessings, you're a rare Dodge owner. If my year old pickup would stay running long enough to make the 3 mile drive to the Toyota dealership, I'd be rid of it already.

Yeah, go buy a Tundra, which is basically a Camry with a bed on it!! LOL, in other words, a poor excuse for a truck that will just have more expensive problems!!
Stick with the American trucks, which are are actually built for work, not just a smooth ride. How many Toyotas do you see being used by companies?? Not a whole lot, at least here in Wisconsin, all you see is Dodges, Fords and Chevys.
