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

Review

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.

Favorite Features

Handles very well, car like ride on smooth roads. Has good power for small engine. Nice storage under seats. Roomy interior.

Suggested Improvements

Reduce rattles, improve gas mileage (at least to what is advertized), make radio controls easier to access, fix the rear end "bounce" at highway speeds on the Interstates. Add a slower AC fan speed. Make the turn signals automatically turn off after the turn.
