Question for Dodge Ram Owners

Hi,

I found a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Quad Cab 2WD with the 5.7L Hemi with 58,849 miles on it and was wondering if anyone has had any experience (good or bad) with this truck? We are looking at trading in the Envoy for it and the dealer is asking $12,995 wondering, too high or just about right on the price?

Thanks,

Ted

I am with Seann on the price. That seems like 4x4 price

http://www.kbb.com and http:www.nada.com It might be a good price for your area.

Thanks for the input guys. NADA shows "Clean Retail" for this truck as $14,750 and KBB shows $16,363. I was surprised at both those myself but that's what it shows. The Envoy I have for trade is about the same.

Thanks again.

I agree with the price sounding high. I would offer around the 10K and then work from there. I would check craigslist or other web sites, and see what similar vehicles are being sold for in your area. Typically website prices are pretty low, so there won't be much wiggle room from those prices. Hope this helps.

The exaust manifold bolts are worth checking. My neighbour has one and that is a problem he encountered. Bolt backed out and caused manifold to warp, resulting in whole new manifold. Also the transmission lines rotted out, requiring replacing. Probably not a factor for you in NV as there's very little rust and road salt down that way. Those are two areas for you to look at that I know of. I would definitly take it to an independant trustworthy mechanic for a look over. May be the best 50-100 bucks you spend.

16k for a 8 year old truck thats nuts. You can buy that truck new (2012) (MSRP $39,755)For $33,362 dodge has zero % for 60mths payment of $556 a month and you own it with zero miles and 36mth 36,000. Info taken from www.truecar.com.

It is a decision only you can make. Keep us posted.

Once again "WE" procrastinated far too long and the truck was sold last night. Thanks again for all the input.

We are now possibly looking at a 2005 fully loaded Tundra, we will see how long we procrastinate this time
