Review of the 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • The versatile Ram can handle everything from off-road bashing to towing an Airstream with ease, and still look good doing it.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    User-friendly cab, distinctive sheetmetal.

  • Cons

    Underpowered base V6, quad cab lacks rear seat room when compared to GM full-size trucks.

Miserable experience

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB

Purchase this truck used. While test driving it my wife accidentally broke the overhead console glasses holder. This was a harbinger of things to come but unfortunately I didn't pay attention as the price was very good and it only had 60K miles on it. Soon after almost every plastic interior piece had broken. The dash completely caved in, the wing down cup holder collapsed, the glove box light bracket snapped causing the light to stay on and the battery to drain. Mechanically, I replaced the driver side window power crank, water pump, power steering pump, radiator, A/C condensate drain and heater core. It doesn't have 100K miles on it yet. While Dodges have great design reliability lack

I come from a long line of Chevy owners, but after searching for just the right truck for myself I fell in love with the Dodge Ram. I have driven plenty of Chevy's but for comfort you can't beat the Ram. I live in So. Cal. and the freeways are more like parking lots, but for a truck I still get great gas mileage (better than my friends 04 Avalanche).

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB

Excellent truck.This was my 4th truck since switching over from cars.This truck was very dependable.The down side is that it was a gas hog.Other than normal maintence,and replacing a fog lamp before 1 year I had no problems at all.I have driven other friends trucks an I had thought mine had power,but after driving theirs I realized mine was adequate,but not overwhelming if i was towin a boat etc.




A great truck

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab SB

I've had my 2000 Ram 1500 Quad Cab for 3 years now. I have actually used my truck as a truck--hauling pallets, trailoring my '77 T-Bird (about 3 tons including trailor) along with a motorcycle in the bed for 700 miles, carrying a full pallet of moist sod in the bed, pulling a 23-foot boat, and you get the point. Never once has my truck complained or given me the least bit of trouble. I have taken good care of it though, so maybe that's part of it. If and when I decide to let it go, someone will get a great truck, and I will be sad to see it go. It has served me well so far, and I see no reason that it won't continue to do so for years to come.
