Purchased or 2001 Dodge with only 26,000 miles on it and purchase Dodges "Platanuim" extended warrenty coverage for extra $1900 cost.
The best they offered.
Within the first year cracks began forming on dash.
Took for warrenty but turns out Dodge purposally excluded interior because they used poor quality plastics for years 1999-2003!
They tried to tell us is was due to sun exposure...even though truck stays under cover!
Has only 52,000 miles on it.
Runs like new and looks like new until you look inside.
Whole dash is gone!
As is the glovebox and all the overhead added storage details!
Cheaply made and then won't stand behind it.
Trading for a Ford!

The V8 is peppy,handling good. Turning radius could be better. Dependable, access to bed and cab good, under hood items easy to see/access. Dual exhaust sounds great, fuel mileage better w/duals. My wife loves this truck and says it is easy for her to operate, she's 5ft tall. Good truck.

I owned a 2001 dodge ram 1500 for about a year and had to sell it. I am actually in the process of buying another. I was very happy when I had mine. It had plenty of power,drove great and was very comfortable. I did have a bad taste about the gas but who doesn't. I am just surprised that this rating is so low for this vehicle. I mean if gas and a CRACKED DASHBOARD is all there is to complain about? I mean I didn't know the dash had an effect on drivability. Just get a cover like I did.
