2001 Dodge Ram Cargo Van 1500 3dr Van (3.9L 6cyl 3A)


Review

Good solid frame and suspension. Well equipped, full power. Gauges and controls are well designed and located. Nice to drive once you are up and in. No leg room on passenger side. 318 engine seems very weak and some spark plugs are very hard to access. Terrible gas mileage (avg 12MPG). Sheet metal is flimsy and dents if you lean against it or bump it. Paint chips and scratches very easily. Sliding side door jumped the track and scraped the whole side of the van. Rear door caught in wind and pulled bolts out of frame. Three front windshields in three years (stress point in center?). No mechanical problems with drive train. Reliable. Still not the quality my older Dodge vans had.


Best Features

Dash and control layout. Solid frame, suspension, drivetrain. Handles and drives well. No mechanical problems and very reliable.


Worst Features

Sheet metal and body integrity are very poor. 318 engine is a dog and should get better than 12MPG. Need better access to some spark plugs. Stay away from the sliding side door and the full size back door -- they are trouble. Climate control system can't handle that amount of interior space.
