I was happy with the RAM Truck I bought as the truck was as advertised and in very good shape with a few minor fixes that the Dealer agreed to fix.

Fun — Going on three years now. STILL love this truck. Funny how they draw you in with rebates but then you learn the car is now worth nothing. Only glitch so far is the GPS. On occasion, it will not boot-up. Restarting the truck after being off for 5 mins solves this. Oh, and the wheels! They are beautiful but for $55k you'd think you'd get solid aluminum wheels not plastic chrome glued to aluminum.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, super-comfortable

Cons: gas mileage, depreciation

Love — My only complaint is the button for manual shift is in a spot that I accidentally push it when I put it in drive or park. I love pretty much everything about this vehicle. Not a big fan of the nitrogen tires

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love almost everything about it

Cons: Not much

Great Vehicle — I like that the inside of this vehicle has plenty of leg room in the front and rear seating for driving on long trips. Seats six people comfortably. Pulls a 30ft camper really well no problems and has plenty of power.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable vehicle. Pulls good with a lot of power.

Cons: I have no complaints about this vehicle

Love The Versatility — This truck rides like a car.. A big one. And can carry anything you choose to load it with. Long drives are incredible. Highway mileage is 20. Depending on the speed you drive, it may only be 18 mpg (above 75). Only have 24,000 miles on it, but I have friends with over 180k and are still trucking!

Pros: Powerful and good ride.

Cons: Gas mileage

Great — This truck looks great and runs even better. The Hemi motor supplies ample power with decent mileage/fuel range for a truck. I am very impressed with the fit/finish and overall quality of the truck. The interior is well laid-out and very functional. Interior materials are solid and pleasant to the touch. Great options too (heated/cooled seats, heated steering wheel, trailer braking). Also, the Dodge UConnect (for blue tooth and voice commands) works really well and is easy to operate.

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

Pros: Great fit and finish - very solid truck

Cons: None

Love It All, X When Go To Gas Pump. — Got it new 2012, late summer of 2013, 370 miles, for $31,000. Like it, wish turned tigher. Still a great truck. Looks are better than the Crew cab or Maxi-pad cab. Will keep for 15 years plus. Nice truck. Plan on a bed cover.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Powerful, cargo, looks

Cons: poor gas milage, but have to trade, have a boat to pull, stuff to haul and need 4x4, thus poor gas milage.
