Water pump blew at 14,000 miles

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


This is my 6th Dodge and was very aggrivated with all the problems. Water pump failed leaving me stuck out of state for 3 days, steering wheel wobble, steering wheel radio controls fell off all at around 14,000 miles. Since then I have not had any problems and am approaching 60K .I need a truck and at the time Dodge seemed the best of the bunch but am not sure if I would purchase a Dodge again especially with the poor warranty. I'm stuck with this truck due to the poor resale value so hopefully I won't have any more problems and hope to get a 150K out of it. This truck is still better than the Ford and Chevy I had.

Best Features

At the time only Quad cab that offered a 6ft bed, affordable price, large console, 6 passenger seating

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, upgrade the cheap interiors
