"I'd like to preference my review by stating that my family is a GM family and I still like GM vehicles. Stop the newspaper presses, the Dodge RAM is the truth. I own a RAM 1500 Quad Cab w/HEMI & MDS system. Great value, my RAM cost me $22,000 brand new. Chevy wanted $26,000 for a vehicle that was close in options to my RAM. Thanks for the Lifetime Warranty on the power train. I have had two problems: #1. Water pump at 90,000 miles, & #2. Wheel Bearing Hub at 112,000 miles. Did the repairs myself, easy, saved a lot of money. Great on gas mileage for a truck this size, 24 MPG Hwy at 65MPH, 16 MPG City. Driven from GA to TX, & GA to MI, great traveling truck. Great for hauling and towing. I drive this truck back and forth to work daily & I use it for my handyman business. It gets the job done. The size of this truck is intimidating, people tend to move out my way, when I get into the HEMI. Love that HEMI. I have it in my 300C also. No complaints about this truck. Why buy a small truck when this is better all the way around. You can't go wrong with this truck. My little brother likes it so much, he bought a 2012. Number 4 selling vehicle in USA."

"I have almost 300,000 miles with minimum issues. Power train still strong with NO repairs, only normal maintenance. Drives great, handles great, pulls great, and is extremely comfortable. Has NEVER left me stranded. The only mechanical repairs: Power steering hose at around 80,000, Fuel pump at around 200,000, Balljoints at around 275,000. If this one ever dies, I will get the new version of it at that time."
