Purchased or 2001 Dodge with only 26,000 miles on it and purchase Dodges "Platanuim" extended warrenty coverage for extra $1900 cost.
The best they offered.
Within the first year cracks began forming on dash.
Took for warrenty but turns out Dodge purposally excluded interior because they used poor quality plastics for years 1999-2003!
They tried to tell us is was due to sun exposure...even though truck stays under cover!
Has only 52,000 miles on it.
Runs like new and looks like new until you look inside.
Whole dash is gone!
As is the glovebox and all the overhead added storage details!
Cheaply made and then won't stand behind it.
Trading for a Ford!

I had my 01 RAM passed down to me a few years ago when my grandfather had gotten the new 2010 F150. It was a great truck and has been through a lot over the years. However it also had over $2000 of work done to it to keep it running. Rebuilt transmission, replaced rotors, brakes, tires, all kinds of pumps and wire, plus all kinds of stuff I can't even remember. But nothing you wouldn't expect from a Dodge truck, especially at 10 years old. All-in-all, it was a good truck, and really sturdy. The V6 Magnum wasn't too powerful, but it lasted the life of the truck and still pushes to this day, at 140,000 miles. If only the fuel economy didn't suck.

I bought this truck a month ago so this review is more for the looks and performance not maintanance records etc.
Towing: good so far we towed my friends small horse trailor with it and it wasnt a problem at all.
Cabin: Nice. usually the dash from what i hear is the worst thing on these trucks but mine works just fine
exerior looks: great looks like a truck. thats all that matters.
Speed and performance: great everytime i step into my truck and turn that key theres this loud rumble and girls look at me. its a great feeling. or when i put the pedal to floor theres this montrous roar coming from the powerful V8 engine it is honestly the best sound i have ever heard. It is a beast!
