It depends on weither the owner takes care of it, what it is used for, how much power over stock, and how they drove it. Dodges autos are not the best. If they are taken care of and not abused they are OK at best.

If the power hadn't been bumped up, and no sign of heavy towning use, I'd get the tranny serviced and call it good. The Auto is a good unit if it's not pushed to it's limits and will last a long time if serviced, The standards Dodge use are almost bulletproof, even at 400+ HP after that then a good SBC clutch or someting and it's good to go

My auto tranny had almost 160,000 miles on it when I bought the truck and it was fine (at least until I started adding mods:evil: ). I would be more concerned about the fuel pumps. Checking fuel pressure before buying is a must.
