My current truck is a 2002 ram 1500 with a 3.7 V6 w/ a 5 speed manual. It has 33,000 miles, and never had a problem with it. Handles and shifts like a bimmer. I have the work interior and the seats are cracking a little now. My father has had many dodge trucks in the past and never had a problem besides the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 that was made in Mexico (POS) Thing would have 2 inches of water in it after a rain. Dealer tried to fix it, instead they just put dents in the body. Dad got disgusted and the dealer gave him his money back and dad bought a loaded dakota.
