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!

My 2001 Dodge 6 cylinder 5 speed work truck has only had 2 repairs in 8 years. Air conditioner after 6 years and water pump at 96,000 miles. Like most Dodge trucks the dash is cracked every where. I get 18.4 miles per gallon every time i check the mileage. It has been a great truck and i doubt if any Japanese trucks this size could beat the gas mileage or reliability.

This has been a very reliable vehicle.
I normaly trade every year but because
of the overall perormance of this
truck I have had this one almost three
years. I've had two factory recalls
one for a loose power cable that
wasn't loose and one to replace the
clock spring in the steering column. I
had one door speaker that failed in
the first 30 days and the latch on the
rear fold up seat didn't work when I
accepted delivery from the dealer.
That was also repaired. Other than
that I haven't had to have anything
but routine maintinance to the truck.
I would recomend this truck for anyone
needing a full size truck.
