"Im about to trade this truck in on a new Tundra, I've owned it from new and it has never missed a beat. Kinda thirsty for sure and it eats rear tires but reliability has been perfect, no problems at all."

Lots of issues

"I bought this truck used and I always wanted to own a Ram. I traded a 2006 Mustang for it and i wish I never traded. PROS: Great versatility and use of space Awesome power Looks good Aggressive Sound CONS: Fuel pump went out immediately Coils went out after Fuel pump Spark plugs right after that HEATER COIL went out and must remove Entire Dash Board to replace (cost of part: $85 Cost of Labor: $900) Headlamps aren't great, very dim even with replacing bulbs with bright ones steering is a bit shaky, tends to groan when turning"

"Purchased Dec. 05 @ 41,680 MI for $16,500. KBB top value is 8189, almost half of what I paid nearly 10 years ago. On third Battery. 3rd set of tires,3rd steering rack, NOTE buy Mopar, have replaced power steering hose's, and radiator and related hoses, still have same serpentine belt, have never done anything to it. Have put Slick50 in engine. replaced rear e shoes and cables. Have Heavy duty premium DR/SL rotors F/R with ceramic pads Gibson cat back exhaust. Truck had been abused by 1st owner after 19K miles then cared for by navy Pilot, until I found her. She needed front forward shaft in 4wd assembly and transmission needed overhauling both done with reputable dealers. Have periodically changed transmission fluid, have had no issues in over 60K MI.average 15 mpg Have K&N air Filter Element in stock air box. and the Tornado in air inlet. Original plugs, wires, starter, everything under hood is as original save for battery and radiator and hoses."
