1997 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 2dr Extended Cab SB

Review

This has been a fun vehicle to drive. Had to get the transmission worked at about 45,000 miles and the anti-lock brake light came on when new (warranty item). Brakes were good for over 80,000 miles. Other than that, only normal maintenance. I expect it to keep on ticking for a long time.

Favorite Features

Exterior design is good. With the addition of fiberglass running boards, shell and bug deflector it really looks sharp even as old as it is.

Suggested Improvements

Wish I could get better than 17 mpg on the hiway and about 13 in town. I have heard a lot of complaints about the auto transmission. Better transmission reliability would be good.
