Summary:

Not cheap on gas, but you'll LOVE driving it down the road

Faults:

Well the car had been sitting for a period of six months, so I had a few things to fix before it was fully operational.

The only time it left me on the road was right after I acquired the vehicle and the alternator stopped working. This had to be replaced and I had to tow the car. Other than this it has never left me on the road, even though almost the entire mechanical aspect of the car, with the exception of the engine block has been replaced.

The one thing that I have noticed with this car is that I have had several problems with the carburetor, having replaced it twice already. But I have read that carburetor problems are common in Ram chargers.

General Comments:

This car is great.

I would not trade it in for anything.

Handles great for such a big machine and for its age.

Very smooth when driving long distances as well as when I use it for my daily driving.
