1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB

Review

Bought new. The v8's ok but drinks gas.
Pings like heck - higher octane
minimized that problem. Manual says 87
octane and pinging is ok. No other
problems for first 3 yrs. Trans broke
right after time limit on warnty, but
less than 35k miles. Long story short,
Dodge agreed to pay for parts, I paid
the balance, which was more than half
of the $1800 repair. Now my tie rods,
pitman arm, and idler arms need to be
replaced as garage is unable to align
the truck as is.

Best Features

Roominess and style.

Worst Features

Extend the warranty. Make an auto-trans that doesn't break so soon.
