RAM TOUGH, Not Really!!!
By B.W. Evans on


2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)


I have owned many Dodges over the years, but this one has had the worst repair frequency record ever!! It has the 4 Wheel Anti-Lock Brakes, and they just DO NOT STOP THE TRUCK. It has been back to the dealer at least 9 times for repair. I finally had someone else bypass the ABS for the front wheels, and now it works fine. But, this is not a true fix. I guess the only way to get anyone to fix it right is to have a serious enough accident. The only other bad thing with this vechile is that it gets VERY poor fuel mileage... The sticker says 12, but I usually get only 8. Dealer says that this is normal also... My advise, buy a Japanees truck.

Best Features

SLT +. Leather Seats are great on trips, and CD/Cassette Infinity Radio is 1st rate. Ride quality is very good. Note: THis is a 150 Quad Cab with 8ft bed. This makes a big difference on the road.

Worst Features

FIX or eliminate the 4 Wheel ABS system before someone gets killed. Ensure that the vehicle can get at least 16 mpg on the road.
