I have owned to truck from New for over 2 year and put roughly 37,000 on it. Have had no mechanical issues and I change the oil ever 5,000. It does have belt squeel at startup when it's about 20° or below but haven't been to concerned with it. Tows my camper nicely it's a 28ft weighed in about 9000lbs loaded I have few complaints about this truck has been serving me well
To me, the biggest Ram selling point is the smooth ride. The Ram is the only truck that has a coil rear suspension. Everyone else has a leaf-spring rear suspension. The ride is terrific. You do give up about a 1000 lbs in towing capacity and 100 lbs in rear cargo. But ask your yourself, "How often do I tow 10,000 lbs?" For most people the answer is never. But you will enjoy that ride every mile. It is a tremendously better ride over Ford or Chevy or Nissan. I have owned them all. My last two trucks have been Dodge. Another point is the Rambox. It is a space saver for me and worth every penny. I use my trucks on a farm and I have towed 10,000 lbs upon occasion. Ram gets he work done and I ride in style and comfort. My 2010 Dodge had 145,000 miles when I sold it and never a problem. My 2015 has 80,000 on it now and no issues. I do service my trucks right on schedule and it pays off.
