Runs smooth and very reliable.

I bought my Dodge due to the low miles, it 79, 000 miles and is a 2001. It has been the most reliable vehicle that I have owned. I have had no issues with it and do regular maintenance as needed to it. I have replaced the fuel pump and power steering pump. The vehicle was well taken care by the previous owner and has no body damage or rust spots. The 4x4 is a life saver for me as we live in and it comes in handy with all the snow we get. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and foresee myself being a loyal Dodge owner when purchasing my next vehicle.

- First Name A

17 year old Dodge RAM with amazing dependability for her age.

It is a reliable truck, but because of the age it has many problems. The a/c leaks through to the floor due to improper insulation, and there is a tear in the rubber seam at the windows where water leaks in. It is a gas guzzler, and takes 60$ to fill up the tank completely from e to f. Very comfortable to drive, and does very well when towing. Good handling, though the alignment is off, and the wheel is a bit loose. Most of the problems are attributed to old age, though, and the truck overall is durable and dependable.

- Rachel V

Vehicle gets great gas mileage and has a smooth ride. Has good tires.

Vehicle is an extended cab with a bed liner. It has a v8 motor with 167, 000 actual miles. It can go almost 300 miles before needing more gas. Cloth seat with fold down armrest in the middle. The dash has a crack in it which seems to happen with the Dodge pickups. It has 16 inch tires. The truck is loaded with air conditioning, cassette player/radio, cruise control and power windows and tilt steering wheel.
