Default Dodge Ram Reliability

Hey Guys

I just got a new 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn with the 5.7 Litre Hemi

And I love it , its got power and it looks like a bad *** pick up compared to my dads and brothers F150.

Only question though is I keep hearing people tell me they wouldnt drive a dodge the reliability is bad etc etc

Coming from a family who has all fords and never owning a Ram

should i be worried ??

You shouldn't worry one bit. I've had four Rams, not one of them has gone into the shop for any kind of repair. Ford owners say bad things about the Ram because they have Hemi jealousy. It's sad really.

Yeah well my brother said everyone says something ford owners hate anything not a ford but he loves my truck.

Compared to the f150 or any other pick up the dodge looks so much more beefy.

What kind of Ram do you have

A 2010 Ram R/T - also had a 2008 Quad Cab 2wd with the 4.7, a 2004 Quad Cab 2wd with the Hemi, a 2003 Regular Cab 4wd with the 4.7, and an 85 D150 2wd with the 318.

They are the most reliable trucks I've owned, and as you said, get lots of looks from other truck owners.

I agree, must be HEMI envy lol, but my '81 Ram never left me stranded anywhere, so it was a no brainer when it came time to buy a new truck. With regular maintenance, you should be in great shape!

Generally speaking, like all things that are mechanical, you take good care of it and it will take care of you. There are exceptions to this rule however.

Couldn't agree more.

As for me, my truck has had one problem with a misfire, but had it fixed. It still runs fine with 118,000 miles. It's a 2002 1500 with the 5.9l. My Grandpa has an old 94 2500 with the V10 and it still starts up on the first try and drives fine with 400,000 miles.

Anything made right can last you as long as you want it to.

Leather seats and cheap usually don't go in the same sentence.
