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.

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.

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.
After a complete redesign in 1994, the Ram Pickup offers a club cab on a 134.7-inch wheelbase. Torque increases to 430 pound-feet with the Cummins 5.9L diesel with manual transmission and an illuminated overdrive lockout switch is standard. An Infinity CD audio system is optional and foglights are included with the Sport Package.
