Dodge cut some corners to save pennies and made a truck of lower quality. Cup holders are 100% guaranteed to break at the hinges. Paint is very thin at places. My work truck (read no carpet) floor mat pulled from doorsills in first few months. Dodge could have left 2 inches more material and eliminated this problem. No front end grease fittings from factory. My local Dodge dealer added them for me. I had the top of the dash crack on a cold morning. I live very close to Florida! Again a cold morning 40F! At that point not covered under warranty. I bought a cover A good truck that could have been better.

well, reading the bashing statements
from other people crack me up, i guess
they don't think that chevy and ford
have there problems. As far as the
brakes, they are made by "G.M." so
there's your problem. i agree the
brakes are defiently under par, but in
atlanta traffic there going to be a
issue. i've driven my truck very hard
for 80,000 miles now, bringing it to
the drag strip every weekend for about
2 years straight, and now every weekend
towing a 4,000 lb. car. As far as the
power goes, at least once a week i blow
a chevy away. I love my truck, and
wouldn't tell anyone not to buy one!
The Ram Quad Cab, as in four doors, becomes the first pickup on the market with two rear access doors. And for convenience, the front seatbelts are now integrated into the front seats, making for obstruction-free rear access. All Ram Pickups get a totally redesigned interior, standard passenger-side airbag with cutoff switch, and all airbags are "depowered" for safety.
