1994 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Regular Cab Laramie SLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

Truck owned since new, so many problems and recalls, who can keep count. Always in the shop, totally unreliable. Noisy, stinky and rough suspension. Wish we had never bought it. Three transmissions, ignition, brakes, injection pump, starter, steering components, water pump, you name it. So much money spent can never recover.


Best Features

Cummins engine.


Worst Features

Give lifetime warranty with truck.

Review

I bought my Dodge when it had 215,000 miles on it. I picked it up cheap and had to fix a problem with the headlights. After that, I have had minimal problems with her. I've fixed a pulley and the clear coat has come off in big patches, but I love my truck. It sits up high and is comfortable for a woman to drive, as well as my 6'3" boyfriend. I plan on driving this pickup to the 300,000 mark. Despite the warnings, there has never been a tranny problem in this truck.


Best Features

Comfortable durable interior, nice power, towing is no sweat. Love my Dodge!!!


Worst Features

Cup holders and factory speakers stunk and needed to be replaced. Obviously horrible gas mileage. Maybe 15 hwy and as low as 8 in town. Clear coat was gone before I got her. Rust has started below the doors.

Review

Initially we were very pleased with the
truck. Our first problem occured a
couple of weeks after taking it home.
The transmission valve body went out.
Dodge replaced it under warranty no
sweat. The brake rotors, calipers and
front hubs were next. All needed to be
replaced due to excessive wear because
the r/f caliper would bind (a common
ailment with "floating" calipers).

The truck's saving grace is the 5.9L
Cummins Diesel. Yes it is loud, but it
will pull anything, anywhere, anytime.
If I had it to do over again, I would
buy the 5 speed.


Best Features

Engine power, decent interior for a base truck. A/C kicks butt!


Worst Features

Beefier automatic transmission (can you say Allison?). Get some real brakes under there.

Review

This has been a reliable vehicle except
for one problem which was fixed by a
recall, & that was that Dodge had
teflon fittings on the automatic
transmission oil lines and once when
hot they got soft and blew off losing
all the transmission fluid and leaving
me stranded 20 miles from nowhere.
I fought with dodge over this poor
design and eventually they had a recall
and put on steel fittings. Also the
paint is all peeling off now and I am
going to have it repainted. Otherwise I
love this truck and plan to keep it
another 10 years. I have the 5.9
engine.


Best Features

Well engineered for the most part.


Worst Features

Improve the automatic transmission .
