Perfect Truck — I love this truck! It Is super reliable and great during rough weather. It has never had any major mechanical issues. I think in part to keeping great synthetics running through it. Massive power when needed; remember its a Hemi!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Truck

Cons: Gas

I Have Owned Other Trucks....i Would Buy Another Ram — I bought the truck new in 2005, used it as my primary transportation for over 89,000 miles. Outside of a few tires and oil changes this vehicle never cost me a dime in maintenance. Never let me down, never broke down and never failed to start.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great power and reliability

Cons: none

My Bart — I bought this in 2005 for a business that never took off and my old job never went away, so I was happy. I always had people complement on the looks of the truck...and it was very sharp. I'll actually miss it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sharp looking truck that was always ready.

Cons: Expensive to operate these days...15-16MPG mixed

Great Truck — Easy to work on, reliable, tough body, and fun to drive. However, the HEMI seems underpowered compared to today's models. ABS was apparently optional for the truck also. As a result this handled poorly on icy roads so I traded it in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Durable, reliable, overall great truck to own

Cons: 4wd system is not as capable as newer models, disliked lack of ABS, HEMI has improved since then

Dodge Ram Long Horn Edition — This truck was great for hauling furniture and had a good V8 engine, however the fuel consumption was not where I wanted it to be. The rear cab is ok for toddlers but a little cramped with a newborn. I did enjoy the truck but would have preferred the HEMI with sport package.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Great transmission and amazing engine response

Cons: HEMI is preferred, gas mileage could be better

Reliable, Powerful, And Gets The Job Done. — Had this truck for a few years now and it had never left me on the side of the road. Replaced the alternator due to a bad bearing and the drive belt while I had it off. Other than that this truck has been extremely reliable, starts every time, and fun to drive.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Very reliable truck, fast and powerful and with a sunroof!

Cons: gas mileage isn't anything to get excited about.

Love Dodge Ram! — Stylish looking truck. Solid styling and very few blind spots. Repairs have been minimal. Normal maintenance and tune ups which have been fair. Truck handles well, gets up and onto the freeway and cruises along nicely. Quiet interior and great for kids etc in the back seat. Dodge has the best under seat storage by far!

Pros: Great truck for a 2WD.  Good gas mileage and an easy keeper :)

Cons: Does well everywhere we've taken it - no complaints.

Awesome Truck!! Definitely Turns Heads And Gets Attention Of Others! — This is my baby but due to the addition of a second child and more car seats, I need to get a better family quality vehicle like a luxury sedan or something! This is a very fun truck to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great looking truck! Makes you feel like a man! Head Turner!

Cons: Poor gas mileage, tough to get car seats in and out back seat due to the height
