Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"But I can honestly say it has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. The body remains tight with no squeaks or rattles. The engine runs as well as when I first purchased the truck. The steering is as tight as when new. I have tried to provide regular service and the vehicle has rewarded me with trouble free operation. I was always a GM owner but this truck has changed my mind about Dodge trucks. My last 87 GMC was falling apart before 100k. I plan to run the wheels off of this one and expect that to take at least another 100,000 miles, probably more."
"This truck runs incredibly and is one of the most reliable vehicles I have had the pleasure of owning. PERIOD. Throughout it's life, so far 16 years, I have had some wear and tear, but nothing too extreme. The A/C has been serviced a lot, but I am HARD on cooling units as I live in a hot climate so this was to be expected. A transmission hose did break, but caused no additional damage. As with all vehicles, proper maintenance is required to keep a good engine running. Personally, I don't have a towing package, but I have seen this mid-size pickup pulling trailers much larger than itself without a single squat. The transmission in the Sport package is snappy and as soon as you hit the pedal there is no hesitation leading to a comfortable driving experience. A drive through the mountains is simple for this vehicle as it does have the Over Drive feature and responds well to inclines. If and when the time comes to part ways with this truck I will have a hard time replacing it."
