My Ram 1500 is really a
disappointment. I met more 1500 Ram
owners that say the same. My truck has
37,000 and the cruise control, steering
pump, electrical system, and power
locks all had to be repaired. If that
wasn't bad enough the front brake pads
and rotors had to be repair/replaced at
12,500. From what other dodge owns
tell me the transmission should go out
soon. Before buying a RAM ask the owns
that have one what they think of their

Best Features

The outside looks nice. (thats about it.)

Worst Features

RAM started one improvement - Warrenties on their transmissions for 100,000 miles (because they needed it) Now try to impress the consumers by putting warranties on the rest of the truck.
