2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)

Review

I post this review mainly to warn anyone thinking of purchasing a used 1994-2001 Ram 1500 4x4. Purchased new in 08/01. The first sign of things to come was when a stranger approached me and started a conversation with "So, have you ever had any trouble with your transmission?" The list of problems are water pump(bearing), transmission(rebuild at 70k and 95k after all req. service and no off road and towing 2x), "death wobble" (very nasty, do internet search), int. map light, and "Humpty Dumpty" dash. I call it that 'cause Dodge couldn't or wouldn't put it together again. Some of these complaints are highly reported on the internet. It is my first and last Dodge.

Best Features

Very comfortable seating with bench and fold down console, excellent factory paint (silver), liked the control layout and dash visibility, never an engine problem with the 5.9L. Ride height offered excellent visibility. Roomy interior with sufficient rear seating when needed.

Worst Features

Transmission reliability, replace defective dashes that are the result of poor quality materials or a design quirk, straight axle with lightweight steering stabilizer helps produce "death wobble", gas mileage was worse than expected, definitely worse Chevy or Ford. Stand behind your products.
