1998 Dodge Ram Wagon 1500 SLT 3dr Van 1500 SLT 3dr Van
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.
Safety, comfort, dependable and very useful for hauling all types of cargo, most importantly my family.
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.
