Default Hello! Considering 2007 1500 ThunderRoad Purchase

Hello everyone. Just found the site a couple days ago. I am considering purchasing a 2007 Ram 1500 SLT Crew 4x4 ThunderRoad with the Hemi. It's a great truck. Any thoughts on whether I should have a Pre Purchase Inspection done? I know on some used vehicles this is a must but don't know enough about the 1500 yet to know if I should really worry. Thoughts are welcome. If anyone knows of a good shop near Greensboro or Raleigh please chime in.

Cheers,
Karl

Welcome to RamForumZ, from Barrie, Ontario Canada! Glad to have you join us here! I think I would get the pre-inspection done for sure! There may not be anything wrong with it, but if there is, the inspection will be well worth it, especially if you are serious in purchasing! Enjoy the site!

First of all Welcome Aboard! Glad to have you. You have most defiinitely come to the right place to learn about this potential purchase. If you have any qualms, then I would get it inspected. What more could you tell us about it? What is the current mileage? What is the external condition of it? Any signs of obvious abuse? Also if you have any reserves, have the dealership throw in an extended warranty. Best of luck and keep us posted.

Welcome to the Z! Honestly, you should have the pre-purchase done on ANY vehicle, you never know how the previous owner treated it, manufacturer doesn't matter.

Hello and welcome to the forum! Glad to have you here! There is always something that goes wrong with vehicles so he inspection is a great idea! I would not buy something without checking it over really well. The Rams do last a long time and they are pretty well built but you never know. Let us know how you make out with the truck! I would rally like to see what you are thinking of purchasing

Welcome to the forum.

Regardless of that year, make or model of used vehicle you purchase, it's always good to get an inspection.

Welcome aboard! You've found a great site for information and answers to questions. I'd recommend the inspection; it's worth the bucks for the peace of mind if it passes and saves you mega-bucks if it doesn't!
