2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Gas prices not withstanding... my paid for truck bought new has given me a great run for the money and I never complain about a warranty item fixed for free. It is true that Dodge never made a vehicle they didn't want to make four engines/trans/trim levels for. One of the reasons the imports seem to have an easier time with repairs. Even here my vehicle is an slt not a plus but the only option is a 4.7 for the slt unless the add for the engine comes up .. The real problem with any vehicle like this is the repair dealer you deal with .. the real survey should be how the dealership handles the problems that are covered. At 80,000 miles my paint on the roof was repainted from Dodge. Thank you ..


Best Features

Went down a ditch took a fencepost out and with the aid of my westin bullguard lived to tell about it with minor damage. Mostly to my ego..


Worst Features

Well the improvements have been implemented by now. Braking on a truck is always a problem without a load but the ESC addition on the newer trucks is great.. I go a little slower now in the country at night.. P.S. 4wd is not just for snow. Rainy nights also come in handy.

2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Sport is a beautiful truck and excellent ride with 20' wheels. Interior is spacious with quality materials, excellent heater and A/C. Short Bed adequate. I have towed up to 3,000 pounds (boats, snow machines, 4- wheelers) with no problems. Works hard when using a truck camper. Horrible gas mileage with 5.9L unleaded. Only 12-13 mpg on highway and can drop to 9 mpg when carrying truck camper.


Best Features

sport interior/exterior, 20' wheels, comfort and size of cab.


Worst Features

Gas mileage is horrible, finance low gas mileage or upgrade to diesel.

This truck is AWESOME!! Most comfortable ride in a truck I've ever had. Seats many comfortably. Towing capacity is wonderful.

Smooth ride, towing capacity and comfort.

Have had issues with losing bearings, other than that finding a happier medium on gas mileage..

2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 2WD LB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased by Ram 1500 "Sport Edition" truck new in 2002. In the six years of ownership and 131,000 miles later, this vehicle has seen the service department just twice - blown fuse and cooling fan. It is by far the most maintenance-free vehicle I have ever owned! The 4.7 liter engine supplies plenty of power for the type of work I do. Personally, with gas prices the way they are, I don't think the much-heralded "Hemi" is worth the money or the sacrifice in gas mileage. I average 16.5 MPG in the city and have reached 19 MPG on the highway with my 4.7. It is as silky-smooth driving as the day I bought it. Selling it is not an option - it is my "toolbox" for life!


Best Features

Great engine, complete instrumentation, "in-your-face" looks, reliability, huge storage console, extremely roomy for a regular cab


Worst Features

None.

Bed space. Very roomy inside. Not cramped like other similar trucks.


Worst Features

Fuel economy
