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


Unreliable – I now have 46K miles on
my '99, and I have already had many
problems, including engine gremlins
causing it to run on only 7 cylinders,
steering linkage replaced, rear end
leak fixed, brakes replaced. Current
problems are a transmission bushing
($1800), power steering pump on the way
out ($??), and rust on the bottom edge
of the tailgate and doors ($700).

Under powered - The 318ci can barely
drag itself up even modest hills.
Forget hauling or towing, though I have
frustrated myself trying. Forget cruise
control in the hills or the truck will
shift itself to .

Best Features

Nice looks and comfortable ride.

Worst Features

Build it so it will outlast the payment book.
