2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab ST 2WD SB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I had my 01 RAM passed down to me a few years ago when my grandfather had gotten the new 2010 F150. It was a great truck and has been through a lot over the years. However it also had over $2000 of work done to it to keep it running. Rebuilt transmission, replaced rotors, brakes, tires, all kinds of pumps and wire, plus all kinds of stuff I can't even remember. But nothing you wouldn't expect from a Dodge truck, especially at 10 years old. All-in-all, it was a good truck, and really sturdy. The V6 Magnum wasn't too powerful, but it lasted the life of the truck and still pushes to this day, at 140,000 miles. If only the fuel economy didn't suck.


Best Features

.The cab room .Good mirror view .Tough truck


Worst Features

.Transmission wasn't too good. .The fuel economy, no matter how much it says on the website, or on the manual, the most I ever squeezed out of the truck was 15 to the gallon.

Review

Only brand new vehicle ever bought. Like the looks, power, and feel. Gas mileage was disappointing. 13-19 advertised, most I ever got on a long trip has been 15. Most of the time it's 12-14. Water pumps went out, and transmission will not shift into first on its own. Someone that didn't pay attention would have probably burnt the transmission up by now. Shifts fine by manually shifting the automatic transmission. 71,000 miles and dash board has craters in it.


Best Features

Nice truck sound. Fairly comfortable ride with ample power.


Worst Features

Dash board has fell in with giant holes in it. Dodge should be ashamed of this design, and should be embarrassed of the way it does not last. Gas mileage could be improved or at least advertised closer to actual on the sticker. 19 mpg? Maybe coasting down a hill with the engine off.

Review

This is a decent truck. It's great for a kid's first vehicle because it doesn't have much get-up-and-go power. It's a fairly slow vehicle that is good if you are just hauling lumber or a 4-wheeler around. It won't work if you want to pull a load of any real size or jump out into traffic without endangering yourself. Given the choice, I wouldn't buy another Dodge with a V-6. Chevy's V-6 is a fairly strong engine, but Dodge failed miserably in that dept.


Best Features

Wheels and optional passenger air-bag control. Also, it has a far superior interior to Chevy!


Worst Features

More power! Also, don't put in a plastic dash that cracks in the heat.

My dodge ram truck has been a very reliable vehicle to date. It pulls and hauls anything i need it to. allthough the gas mileage is less than great,it is an all around good reilable truck.


Best Features

The interior of truck is layed out perfect.lots of room.


Worst Features

This is the last year dodge used the 5.2 318 engine (not the most fuel efficient).Hopeful the new engines will adress this problem.
