"Been very reliable. Few breakdowns...just repairs for normal wear & tear. Not a fancy truck....but everything that worked in 2000 still works today including AC, heat, cruise, power steering."

"This has been one of the best trucks I have driven to date. Im only 20 and have only had a license/permit for about 4-5 years so I wont claim to be an expert in trucks but I have driven Mazda, GMC, Chevy, Ford, Nissan, Mitsubishi and other Dodge Rams. Now mind you Mitsu stopped producing 'Trucks' past 98 and they were mostly smaller like a S10 or Ranger but this truck has always done me right. Almost everything in my truck is original except for the suspension and tires (Common considering use) and when I 'Inherited' her from my mother I was a little cautious because of her quick pick-up but at the end of the day she has taken everything thats been thrown at her and is still in amazing condition minus one of two small interior things that need to be fixed. I plan on keeping her for a long time hopefully well past 400k. I personally recommend her the only issue for me outside of what i mentioned is that she is sometimes hard to clean and when i mean that after i clean her the water sometimes stays and she looks like a spotted lepoard."

"I bought my truck used, knowing that Dodge is known for a few cosmetic issues. That has nothing to do with reliability and dependability! I have owned my truck for 2 years now and I couldn't ask for a stronger truck. It's been through a lot and still treating me right! Unfortunately I need to sell it because I am pregnant and need to get 4 doors. :-("

"We bought our truck used. We went into it knowing that with this truck we would probably (and do) have paint, dash, comfort issues. In the end we decided on Dodge diesel anyway due to the historic work horse, cost to work on nature of the truck. Great truck, it tows fantastic, gets great mileage when towing, and is generally mechanicly sound. When we have worked on it the parts are very reasonable in comparison to friends Diesels by other manufacturers. (And so far- a lot easier to work on!) Typical problems with dash and paint, but we were aware those could be an issue, so it wasn't a surprise. Overall- much happier with our dodge even though it has less comfort and appearance factors than other manufacturers. We probably won't get rid of this truck. Have owned it for five years and are very happy with it. (We replaced the dash one year ago and it needs new paint, but it runs strong as ever.)"
