Hard miles with the minimum maintenence has stuck me on the Dodge truck. I purchased a used Dakota with 150k miles and sold it two years later with 214k before buying my Ram 1500. I was hoping that the Dakota wasnt a fluke because you know sometimes it just depends who was working the factory that Monday when you get those trucks that just keep on going. But my 1500 has not dissapointed yet, I've put a hard 52k in one year and it runs like it just finally got broke in.
The cruise is ergonomic and much better than the turn signal models. And I love that little space behind the seats, even in a regular cab you can recline a little bit.
Factory stereo is lacking. Tranny could be geared a little higher.
