1997 Dodge Ram 1500 (That Black Dodge)
Last updated May 29, 2007
This was the first NEW vehicle I ever bought. Boy did I get screwed. I wandered away from GM products, and I got burned. Shortly after I put brand new 285 seies tires on it it developed one hell of a shake. Took the tires off and had them rebalanced 3 times, at 3 different shops. Still shook but only between 60 and 70 mph, any thing above or below that nothing. So Dodge dealer told me it was front end parts, nothing, Then it was transfer case, nothing. Finally put on a different set of tires and shake was gone. BAD TIRES! had to threaten legal action against tire store that sold them to me to get a new set. Glad I bought the extended warranty. only cost me about $300 bucks in deductibles to get it fixed. Then hit a Deer at 75 mph on the Interstate. got that fixed. Then a month later some little punk keyed it setting in front of my parents house. Luckily all but the door could be buffed out. Got 4 tickets in it, 2 for speeding, 2 for licence plate covers. Saw my life flash before my eyes in an Ice Storm, when it slid off the Interstate and jumped a Patrol turn around road, luckily I was only doing about 45 mph. Boy was I glad to get rid of that truck.
