Stay away from this truck

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I bought this 5.2L truck used with 14,000 miles for $14,000. I loved it until it had about 70,000 miles on it. Now it has 111,00 miles on it and the following has had to be replaced: plenum/intake gasket, clutch, tie rods, ball joints, catalytic converter, heater core, main computer, brakes and rotors (three times), steering damper, and shocks. It now needs the front and rear transmission seals, and new front wheel bearings. It is parked until I can sell it. I have always maintained this truck and never really hauled anything with it. I expect a bit more life than this for the money I pay. Shy away from this one.

Can't keep the rf wheel

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

Right front hub failure twice. Dodge won't own the problem. Very dangerous to drive. A/C leaks. Electrical system stinks. Will NEVER purchase another Chrysler product.




Good basic truck

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

My ST has the 318 5spd and had been a great basic truck so far. The 5-speed helps with the gas mileage and avoids some of the nasty transmission problems with the Dodge automatics. I too have the spark knock on heavy acceleration with load, which can be improved with premium fuel every now and then. This is a solid no frills truck with 160K on it and likley many more good KM to go.
