Default Need Info

Looking for help to decide on a 2009 TRX4, 5.7 Hemi with 87,500 miles. They are asking $18,900 I don't have a lot of knowledge with Dodge only 1 friend with a 99 Ram 4x4 5.9 with about 242,000 mles. Are these trucks reliable and what kind of mileage can I expect with the 5.7. I currently drive a Sport Trac 4.0 and at best get 13.5-14.6 miles per gal. I really just want to know if the TRX4 is a good truck.

in town, the mileage will be about the same if not a smidge better. As for reliabilty, they are pretty good. on some 09s the exhaust manifld studs break, and the pinion nut is under recall.
I have had mine for almost two years and love it. Its got 63,000 km on it and hasn't broken or put a foot wrong. and i will buy another one if/when i am done with this one. It handles everything.

Ive got 92,000 on my 09, Quad Cab 4x4 Sport.. I did have the manifold stud issue which so I would investigate if that work was done on this truck. I had to have it done on mine, but other than that its been great.. Getting about 15 or so avg MPG but am due for a plug change...

I do alot of hunting so my truck sees crop fields, 2 tracks, pastures, etc and has never given me grief..

As the previous poster said, i would buy another one in a heartbeat.. Defintiely been a great all around truck for my first full size..

yes I've it for a week now and already fell in love with it. I checked the carfax and it showed that the pinion and exhaust manifold problems were already done. Looking for many years of enjoyment with this truck, had a sport trac for 12 years previously.
