safe, reliable and comfortable

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

As a family we love our 2005 Dodge Ram 1500. It is very comfortable for large families. We are a family of 7 and are able to easily and securely fit 6 passengers in our truck. My children are grown now and some are away to college and our truck still comes in handy in helping them move belongings from place to place. We have never had any mechanical issues with our vehicle only wear and tear items that we have had to replace. I give it a high rating on performance and reliability as well. This vehicle is definitely a long term vehicle. We are actually starting to consider in purchasing a new one pretty soon. After all out truck will be 20 years old soon. We would look at the same make and model but of course just the year would change.

Strongest women put her in a car is our car strong bold independents.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

The Durango well it is actually we call her Linda she came into the family in 2007. She has been in two car crashes another were just surfers dents but one of the main problems is with the bumper and the falling of the car. We have gotten her fixed multiple of time but sometimes she will struggle. She has taken us from Michigan to Florida with no problem we do this every year so she has a lot of mileage.

Amazing on gas and has a lot of room also great for families.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

My truck is amazing on gas it definitely lasts a lot longer than I thought it would along with other trucks. Fits all the kids and makes my life so much easier. Good for adventures and family trips. Plenty of room and easy with kids as well. Luckily I don't have any issues or problems with my truck and it's one of the best purchases I have made in my life.

My thoughts on my 2005 dodge ram truck.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

My ram truck is good for going between school, home, and work. It old (2005) so it has a few problems here and there. I can go a whole week without having to fill the tank. It has 2 seats in the front and one in the middle if you lift the armrest but there is like no leg room. It also has two seats in the back that fold down but it is a little cramped.

Dodge Ram 1500 great for moving large furniture or tables,etc

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Dodge Ram 1500 pickup trucks are pretty reliable trucks they do use a bit more gas than a sedan but are solid cars. They do need basic maintenance checks as any car would, transmission have been known to go out after about 95000 miles and will need to be rebuilt or replaced in the future, has not happened to my truck,

Great, made of pure American steel

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Been running great for the time I've had it. It's a beast and can get the job done no matter what it is. I've had no issues at all the most reliable truck I've had. It's red with a v8 engine and four wheel drive never been stuck in snow or anything. It's awesome
