4.7

Drives smooth, strong, Comfortable & reliable

This truck was amazing for its age, low low miles & very pampered and it showed.. no wonder they sold for so much in it's year! Hate to see it go, I just can't tow it.. it does the towing.

4.9

The best truck I have owned most auto I have owned

So far I put 230k miles on my truck. Other than a few expected replacement parts I have had no major repairs, only standard maintenance. It has tremendous power, idles and runs smooth, shifts solid, quiet in the cab and smooth ride on pavement. The interior has held up VERY well, no rattles or broken knobs etc.

4.0

Dodge Transmissions Poor

I have had to rebuild/replace the transmission 4 times in 325,000 miles. I have been told by several mechanics that this is common problem with Dodge pickups. Also I had to replace the engine @ 125,000 since I did not recognize the serious carbon buildup in the oil pan and dipstick as being caused by malfunctioning engine. And dealers said nothing was wrong until engine died beyond warranty. Paint on cab top and hood flaked off at 10 year point, required repainting. This truck driven 90% highway.
