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

Review

Buy this truck only for it's looks. I have gotten many compliments on the appearance which I thank them for and then tell them it is the worst truck mechanically that I have ever owned. I had to replace the rack and pinion at 45,000 and from the feel of it the transmission will need to be replaced within the next 2,000 miles. The engine lost all power getting off the line at about 40,000 miles. It has good pickup when the truck is already going at least 10 miles an hour and the accelerator is slammed to the floor or when passing but hesitates from the line. Fuel economy is killing me with these $2.00/gallon prices - I average about 8 miles to the gallon in town and 13 on the highway.

Best Features

Exterior appearance is quite striking.

Worst Features

Give your mechanical team hell for putting out such a weak pile of junk. This was my first and last Dodge - it costs too much to keep on the road thru repair costs and poor fuel stats.
