Very reliable pickup

This truck is perfect for what I need, has plenty of room in the back for my kids and it’s an excellent ride, heater and a/c works great and the radio is awesome


Clean and well reconditioned

A pleasure to drive it replaced a 99 F250 4x4 diesel 7.3 . It is a little hard on fule mileage on short trips . This is an ST model interrior is roomey doors are ample so back seat passengers can easly get in and out . Factory radio s in my opinion impressive .


Very Comfortable.

Lots of room. runs well and had all the bells and whistles working. 5.7 eng, 4wd, Awd, Leather Seats. Heated Seats and Steering wheel. Cruise control, Navigation, Satellite radio, CD player, MP3 and a 110VAC plug.


Should have bought the Chevy

Well Chrysler has a recall on the rear differential for 2012 Ram 1500s made prior to October 2011 but mine was manufactured in July of 2012. While driving down the interstate at 65mph my rear differential locked up which in turn bound something up engaging the front differential and completely ripping it from the mounts (auto service shops explanation to me as why my truck felt like a bomb went off in it) now I have this beautiful truck sitting in my driveway that needs $3500 in repairs all while paying a $500 a month truck payment. Current vehicle mileage 110k....I guess I should have bought the Chevy


The Best Truck I've Ever Owned

I very recently have purchased a used 2012 Ram 1500 Express with four wheel drive. The truck is perfect. Starts and runs great, very reliable, loads and hauls cargo easily and pulls trailers with ease. The interior comfort is especially nice. The fit and finish is also extremely nice. It's been a while since I've owned a pickup and I'm really pleased with how they've evolved over the years. This Ram truck comes with the 5.7 liter Hemi engine and it has more power than I really need. The transmission also shifts smoothly and works well, as does the four wheel drive feature. I highly recommend this vehicle...


Loved it until major issue

Absolutely loved my truck. It was the best vehicle I had ever owned. Most reliable!!! I had 150k miles on it and never needed any repairs (brakes, tires, battery etc were done as regularly required) but the cam shaft went suddenly and mechanic actually recommended a whole new motor.


Very reliable vehicle

Love the heated steering wheel and seats. Remote start was a great option. The truck averages 15 mpg overall city/ highway. Comfortable ride for a truck!!


Great truck

Great power runs excellent 4 x4 goes through anything beautiful truck easy to drive would recommend the ram to everyone Price was right in my budget


This truck is awesome!

Before this truck I had a 1968 F-250 so definitely an upgrade, but the truck is amazing it drives so smooth and comfortably and it came with the 5.7 Hemi and definitely performs very well when you want the horsepower. It has been an all around amazing and reliable truck in my daily life, and can be put up against pretty much any job you would have for it.


2012 Dodge quad cab Big Horn
