1999 Dodge Ram Van 1500 3dr Van


Bought this baby used with 58,000 on it with no indication it had ever been worked on for major problems. Drove it from CA to MO twice and got between 13 and 17 mpg from the 318cc engine. Have replaced water pump, front wheel bearings, and spark plugs in the 20,000 miles I put on it. I have one concern with a noise from the tranny on backing up. This noise started after the van was frozen shut for several days during the ice storm in Springfield and the -5 degrees temps. This is the most comfortable ride I have ever owned although my Cadillac Biarritz was a close second.

Best Features

Factory stereo is awesome. Captains chairs and fold down back seat make travel a snap.

Worst Features

Back doors don't open far enough and the spare tire is a little tricky to get to. Turning radius is surprisingly bad...u turns often take a second try to clear..
