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

Review

I bought this truck with 65k miles on it and it now has 90k after 4 years. I have had it in the shop at least twice a year since I bought it, mostly for big items (tranny, fuel injectors, etc). I like the look of the truck but it's the biggest money pit I've ever owned! This truck may just be a lemon, but I would suggest doing my research before buying one. I've heard similar tales from other Dodge Ram owners.

Favorite Features

This truck has no shortage of power and when it's running well (very rare) it's definitely a pleasure to drive. For a truck its pretty comfortable and theres a lot of space in the front seat.

Suggested Improvements

The cup holder is terrible, your'e better off not using it. I've spilled many cups of coffee in an early morning daze, also the rear seat in the extended cab has very little space and very uncomfortable. It's only suited for children and some small storage.
