I love my '02 ram

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

Traded my 98 Ram Quad Cab for this because of a great trade-in offer. No regrets or major mechanical problems in four years of ownership. 4.7 liter engine has lots of smooth power for non-towing situations. Highly recommend to anyone.




Big red ram

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

The big red ram I ordered is flame red and it is the best truck I have ever driven and I had a lot of gm products working for the city. The 5300 # beauty stands out every where and everybody that sees it stares or wants a closer look and says that its a beautiful truck. It rides like a limo and is very quick and nimble. Ken B

I love this truck! I have wanted it since they came out, I found them on sale at the end of the year, there was no hastle. It is well designed, rides great, and makes me very happy. My only complaint is the gas mileage (I drove a Honda).




Nice truck

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

Just bought a Dodge Quad Cab, the truck is not bad. They design is awsome, the gas milage well if you want more then 18 miles to the gallon on the highway buy a ford or a Chevy. The engine is ok, you do not feel any lag when turning the ac on. You can get your motorcycle in it, with the gate down, and secure it just fine. The interior is not bad some of the fittings are cheep but over all the truck is solid.




Ram turning heads

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

I've had my Ram Quad for 3 weeks and I can say without a doubt that this is the best large truck w/4 doors out there. The best thing about the Ram is that it has long time Ford/Chevy loyalists actually admitting that Dodge has hit a home run. It kills them to admit this. Everything from the engine to the standard 17" wheels gets great feedback. The 4.7 is more than enough engine.




New stiffer frame means less

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

The door panels rattle, the dash rattles, the cup holder rattles. It has been to the dealer several times and they cannot fix so now they claim they cannot hear any. On some roads like I45 between Houston and Dallas, at higher speeds, the rear of the truck bounces really bad (Ithought the rear axle was coming off). I have heard this is common. The gas mileage is terrible (4.7L w/ auto tranny). I get only 14 on hwy. The radio controls are a stretch, whick I frequently use to drown out the rattles.
