1998 Dodge Ram Wagon 1500 SLT 3dr Van


Review

I used my van mainly as family transportation. I have 5 kids that were shuttled around in it for the last ten years. It is the short wheel base version but still had plenty of room for 7 adults and was very comfortable. No serious mechanical problems have been encountered as of now with 108000 miles. Yesterday my wife and one of my children were involved in a serious accident in it and survived with no injuries. Although it is now considered totaled due to the cost of repairs vs value left on it, I am thankful my family was not in a smaller minivan or any economy vehicle for that matter. Dodge did a good job making a safe vehicle that served us well while protecting my family.


Favorite Features

Safety, comfort, dependable and very useful for hauling all types of cargo, most importantly my family.


Suggested Improvements

I'm not even sure if it is still produced. If it is, a little more power with better fuel economy would be nice if possible but I'd sacrifice those for the positive features listed above.

1998 Dodge Ram Wagon 3500 Maxi 3dr Ext Van


Review

I use my 1998 15 passenger van for my shuttle business. I bought it with 10,000 miles in 1999 and as of Dec 2007 I have 180,000 miles on it. Besides oil changes, tires, and brakes pads this van has never had any problems or let me down. Engine and transmission great. Air cond. good. Zero problems. Best van I have ever had.


Favorite Features

Dependable. I also use it to pull a 21 foot boat and it does it easly with no straining. Interior has held up exceptionly well. Body also. Even though in Chicago area no rust. Very pleased with this vehicle


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage 10-14 mpg. Besides that nothing I can think of.

Review

It's not necessarily pretty or particularly fun to drive but it has been a very good functional van. The pick up is pretty poor, but it cruises from 60-75 mph very well.


Favorite Features

It holds eight people, and has good storage behind the back seat.

Review

you will spend lots of time geting it repaired. brakes won't last long, electical system will trouble you,guzzles gas, drive train is a headache. this is the 2nd one i've had and the last. ( i thought maybe the first was a lemon, gave it a second chance).dodge is less expensive than other makes, but you get what you pay for!


Favorite Features

lots of useable load space,great for long trips-comfortable.sitting up high lets you see lots of the road ahead.


Suggested Improvements

move side view mirrors -they block oncoming traffic, especially on curves- very hazzardous!dodge has a history of bad drive trains, electrical problems and brake trouble. they've been around long enough to have figured out how to improve these deficiencies!
