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

Review

Unreliable I now have 46K miles on my '99, and I have already had many problems, including engine gremlins causing it to run on only 7 cylinders, steering linkage replaced, rear end leak fixed, brakes replaced. Current problems are a transmission bushing ($1800), power steering pump on the way out ($??), and rust on the bottom edge of the tailgate and doors ($700). Under powered - The 318ci can barely drag itself up even modest hills. Forget hauling or towing, though I have frustrated myself trying. Forget cruise control in the hills or the truck will shift itself to .

Favorite Features

Nice looks and comfortable ride.

Suggested Improvements

Build it so it will outlast the payment book.
