I think that either you or the Inspector is leaving out something ??
I bought my '09 ram brand new, it is not a Lease
I have had it since February 2009
It has 111,051 trouble free miles on it
I have had it serviced on a regular basis & i had a couple of recalls done to it, as well as had some software updates
There is no reason that i could not drive it another 100,000 miles
