I'm on my 6th Ram since1998. I've had a 97,99,01,04,05 and now have a 2012. I have loved each more than the one before. The 2012 I have now is extremely comfy especially on long drives. The power is better, great interior, especially in the crew. The look of this model I have is my favorite.
I definitely like the new better than the old!

I'm love'n my new 2012 RAM. Had a '93 Dakota for 18 years and loved it but I think I love my new truck more. Can only get the lifetime warranty with a new car purchase, so I was told, so new is my choice...

I don't know what is old, but to me my 05 is old. I have 180,000 miles on it and it has been the most reliable, best built vehicle that I've ever owned. But, there is a pesky 1956 Ram with a 413 at my track that kicks my arse every time. Darned thing flies!

This is a tricky question. The new Rams are still "new". So, a lot of people don't have a ton of miles on them yet. I voted for the old trucks simply because I have owned an old 5.9 truck and it was bulletproof. I never had any trouble. I bought it from my uncle. He bought it new in 96 and never had it in the shop once. He was hard on it too. I hope my new 2012 Ram will prove itself to be as reliable as my old 5.9.
