Dodge auto trans - not good.

1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB

Review

Bought new. The v8's ok but drinks gas. Pings like heck - higher octane minimized that problem. Manual says 87 octane and pinging is ok. No other problems for first 3 yrs. Trans broke right after time limit on warnty, but less than 35k miles. Long story short, Dodge agreed to pay for parts, I paid the balance, which was more than half of the $1800 repair. Now my tie rods, pitman arm, and idler arms need to be replaced as garage is unable to align the truck as is.

Favorite Features

Roominess and style.

Suggested Improvements

Extend the warranty. Make an auto-trans that doesn't break so soon.
