The 3rd generation Dodge Ram ran from 2002 through 2008 so with those trucks now ranging from 6 to 12 years old, they are among the more common options in the affordable used vehicle market for those folks looking to buy a Ram. The problem that many shoppers may encounter when looking to buy a “new to them” 3rd gen Ram is that the mileage can easily be into the six figure range. That high mileage might leave some prospective buyers to question the longevity of the 3g Dodge Ram but fortunately, we have a thread that includes real world experiences from owners.
This thread started quite a while back when a newer member asked the folks in the 3rd gen Ram section asked the group what was the highest mileage that they have seen on a Dodge Ram pickup. That question is a bit on the vague side, but the members quickly answered with their own first hand experiences, listing how many miles they had on their own Ram. Some members also mentioned some vehicles which they didn’t own that had very high mileage while others listed the mileage on their non-Ram vehicles.
In any case, this 8 page thread in the 3rd gen Ram section reads quickly and in the end, it shows that the 3rd gen Dodge Ram is very capable of easily eclipsing the 100,000 mark without any fuss – while climbing to the 200k mark with only normal maintenance.
