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.

  • What's New for 2000

    The Ram 1500 Pickup Club Cab models with the 8-foot bed have been discontinued; also eliminated for 2000 are the 2500 Club Cabs. All Ram Pickups receive a new front suspension and steering system to improve ride quality and steering precision, and 2500s and 3500s have a revised rear suspension for a better ride when loaded. An off-road package is now available for the short-wheelbase four-wheel-drive 1500.

My experience

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

I bought my truck new and used it in my construction business. I never (!) had a problem in 76,000 miles of Alaskan driving. No squeaks, leaks, mechanical problems, or anything else. But I sadly sold it when I retired and moved overseas....cheap living now. I have owned 5 Dodge trucks and have been more than satisfied. But the gas mileage stinks.

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

I bought this truck with 110,000 miles, and whoever owned it before me neglected it like no other. After about $1500 in parts and labor, I can honestly say I wouldn't trade it for the world. I'm 24 and have had 17 trucks since I've been 17. Yeah, the gas mileage stinks, but what do expect when a truck is modeled after a big rig? These trucks weren't made to be espically comfortable either, they were built to get the job done. I cant remember any other half ton truck that came with a solid front axle in 99.

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

This truck has left me stranded more than any other vehicle i have ever owned. The transmission went out at 94,000 miles. I have also had a lot of electrical problems which left me on the side of the road,but once i got these problems worked out it actually isn't that bad of a vehicle. It has plenty of power for towing.(I use it to tow my 86 mustang). The dash is HORRIBLE. This thing cracked in so many different places and has HUGE holes in them.




Not bad

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

I bought this truck used in 2004 with about 49k on it. It's been a decent truck, but has no creature comforts at all, if that's important to you. It has decent power, but the suspension is pretty stiff, and I had to replace a head gasket. All in all, I'm not sure I would buy another Dodge.




Great truck

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

Purchased new, no problems, except brakes needed replacement at 40,000 miles, now need it again at 75000. The fuel ecomony is not great but average for a full size truck, plenty of power to tow a 6000 boat.

Brakes need improvement (model w/o anti-lock). Good pickup, reliable, dependable...good value.
