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...
This truck is awesome! I am a mechanic with my own business and have owned Fords & Chevys. This Ram has them beat all the way around! Power, handling, comfort, ride, style and fuel mileage are the best. I have a friend who is a die hard Ford guy who was looking to buy a new truck, I told him to just go test drive a Dodge and let me know what you think. Well, he bought it imeadiatly. You Ford and Chevy guys need to go out and buy a real truck!
Hauling trailer and vehicle stalls, not great scenario while on interstate, happening more and more each day. Should be a recall. Now it won't stay running unless the key is in a perfect position. I love the ram products , we have six in our fleet, this is the only one with this problem. But in my opinion it's a huge problem and our dealer says he sees it a lot.
I went into a dodge dealership "JUST" to look at a special deal this dealership had on a 2018 RAM 1500 Tradesman.
So I'm checking it out took it for a test drive and then I fell in love with this truck!
I purchased the truck as soon as i got back. This one has the V6 Ecosystem Engine and the 8 speed transmission.
I took her for a trip to Virginia and I got now get this, 31 mpg!! I'm talking freeway and I get around 24 mph just driving around local.
This is a $31K truck that I bought for $23K and it's not loaded with all those electronics which is great for me. I did not want the HEMI engine because of the gas Mileage and I dont need to tow a backhoe just my boat.
The interior is plush with very nice cloth seats. Everything is within reach and you can see the gauges with ease.
You have 4 doors with a full comfortable rear bench seat for 3 people.
Up front there is a jumper seat between the driver and passenger.
Outside you have the 6.5 foot bed which is also spray coated.
It's also comes with a tow package with both types of plugs for different trailers.
It's a great truck and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a new truck!
My husband drove volvos for years and sold his last one a few months ago. we purchased a different car and right from the start had problems - it was NOT a volvo and the dealership was NOT helpful and ultimately I suggested we trade for a volvo v60. he said he did not want the hassle. I said I would do it. so I drove to volvo on a saturday afternoon, had the pleasure of working with Ralph D'Angelo and Matt Anderson, and at the end of the day drove the car, the pre-owned nifty volvo v60 home! it could not have been easier, it could not have been more pleasant - everyone at this dealership was fantastic, professional, dedicated to getting us in the right car and making the trade happen that day. no angst, no dickering... good questions and conversation and a fabulous car at the end of the day. I cannot recommend Ralph and his team highly enough. thank you.

This Ram 1500 has been totally reliable, comfortable, and economical on fuel. The 5.4 V-8 has all the power you need and is good on gas, 22 MPG on trips, 18.7 Average.
I was always been interested in the Smart Car and I found it at CarMax, I got a good deal on it, I love it and I turn heads with it! Thank You!
Comfort and ruggedness in the same package

The truck is comfortable to ride in and fun to drive. The interior is well thought out. The body style is pleasing to the eye IMO. Wish RAM had offered the quad cab with the longer bed in 2017, they do now.
After going to several dealerships I stopped in at Rowe Hyundai and was greeted by Jason Burns. He printed me out some info on the car I wanted, never putting pressure on me to buy right then. He said when I was ready to buy stop back in and he would help me find what I wanted. So forward 3 months later. I went back to see Jason. He got us into my dream car within hours. He was a pleasure to work with. Friendly, kind, took his time to go over everything with much patience. We have purchased many new cars over the years and I would say that this was the best experience buying a new car. He worked with us to get a great price.

This car meets all my needs . I love this vehicle as far as work and pleasure. I can Drive it around to picnics cookouts and i could take my boat out tow cars around is just it's just an all around good vehicle
David B. and Michael made me feel right at home the second I walked into Lee. I was in a time crunch and needed to be back to work for a certain time. I told them what I was looking for and they made it happen. My Nissan was even delivered to me so I could get back to work when I needed to. Fantastic people, fantastic service. I will recommend all to visit Lee Dodge for a quality experience.

Truck is great! I’ll have it for 20 years. Starts right up, plenty of power, and handles great! Love the Blackforest Green color. Looks black until the light hits it.
Cannot say enough about Lee Dealership! Felt like a celebrity the second I walked in the door, and from there it just got better! Great atmosphere, Great Inventory, Great People! My Salesman was Dan Mahoney and He was incredible and made my purchase so easy and awesome! And WOW does Dan know his Rams! Thanks Dan!!!!
Nothing beats the power of a Hemi!

This Ram Express is tons of value for the dollar. I wish this model had lumbar support but other than that this truck is near perfect. I love the styling and the utility.
I will only buy vehicles from here and seek out Josh Goulette! Professional, knowledgeable and all around just a great experience. Thank you, Josh, for making it so easy!
Good looking, fuel sipping, dependable daily truck

It's a shame they stopped offering the eco-diesel in the RAM 1500, or I'd go buy a new 2019 4x4 now. This has been the most fuel efficient vehicle I have ever owned, regularly getting 31-32 mpg on long trips and averaging about 24 in town. It is the best looking full-sized truck on the market and very well made with tons of utility. Dealers call me all the time wanting to buy it back because it's in such high demand!
On Friday, I was blessed enough to buy the Jeep I've been wanting for years. I always appreciate everyone at Lee, anytime I visit, but this time was finally my time to buy. Throughout the shopping and purchase process, Norm, Aaron, Josh Douglas and Andre were incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and truly took the time to get me the exact vehicle I wanted. I wouldn't have gotten through the process without each of them. I am in love with my 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited, and I still can't believe she's mine!
Great truck! Was well worth the price and more!

Love it! Has so many features that are so amazing! Very clean and reliable! Perfect size for our family of four and enough power to haul our boat and much more!
Everyone at lee Auto were great. Josh Goulette was especially helpful and patient. No pressure, just honest salesmanship. Bought a car there before, glad we returned. Highly recommend to everyone.
Love driving this truck

Found this truck "accidentally" but liked it when I saw it and drove it. I don't put on lots of miles, but have had it fully loaded a few times with building materials...flooring , decking, doors, windows, lumber, etc. Have also towed a heavily loaded 16 foot trailer...Walks away with whatever I ask it to do...very comfortable to drive.
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
Best truck for the money

This truck checked every box I had while vehicle shopping, under $30K, under 30K miles, and a V8. Plenty of leg room in the cab for every passenger, 8 cup holders in the cab. Rear seats flip up for extra storage and it came with 2 built in drink coolers with removable liners. The only thing this lonestar edition didnt come with was leather seats.
We Have purchased our last 5 vehicles from The Auto Barn and will continue as long as we need a vehicle! Exceptional Customer Service, very helpful and stand behind their autos! They actually make the entire car buying experience a true joy and so easy. They answered questions and knew exactly what I was looking for and needed. So pleased with our new ride and the Apple Pie is always an added bonus! They are helpful, courteous, friendly and knowledgeable! Thank you Eric, Marla and John for another great experience!

The only complaint about this beauty of a truck is the 16 spark plugs. The first up grade I would put on this truck is a new exhaust due to the truck being a little quiet
Great features at a good price. Wanted a larger size truck but not too big and it fit my needs. Low mileage used vehicle with hopes of keeping it a very long time.
