2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased a 2003 RAM 1500 quad cab with the 5.9 and 4wd 5 years ago. Other than my 94 Ford exploder this truck has possibly been the worst automotive purchase I have ever made.
Engine problems, heads corroded, leaked, and needed replacing. Wont start when it rains even after replacing the distributer cap. Transmission has lost reverse. Power windows constantly come off the tracks. Heat is minimal. Cruze doesn't work. Air doesn't work. Wheels rusted through which caused over 12 flats in the 5 years and body rust. Power steering died. This truck should be an embarrassment for Dodge more than it is for me.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased my 2003 Slt Quad cab 4X4 used with 77k,now have 92K,replaced the tranny cooling lines and battery,The hemi is awesome,runs flawlessly,tranny strong and smooth,rides like a luxury vehicle,interior is roomy nicely appointed,rather spartan in appearance but its a truck,the hemi is a blast to drive,handles nicely for a nearly 5000 pound truck,no complaints to date,if u want gas mileage buy a 4 banger rice burner!!,in closing,i think its the sharpest truck on the street,unlike the fords and chevys that are a box on wheels,drive a hemi u will be impressed.


Best Features

Hemi,exterior appearance


Worst Features

improve inetrior appearance,gas mileage

Review

2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4 quad cab auto 5.9 loved the truck i am still a fan of dodge they make good looking vehicles.we owned it for 5 yrs.had lots of problems out of it the windows wouldnt roll down missing tranny went out, then we were gonna to drive it let it run for 2 mins went back out and it was on fire. this makes the 4th one i know of that has done this, fire cheif said started in dash with electric.called the dealership and they would not help us.insurance wouldnt cover it either. now it sets in the garage.
I now have a 2003 hemi and its haveing elctrical problems same windows radio heater all electrical so we are sending this one back b4 it does the same thing.


Best Features

the truck was very spacious and comfortable. Dodge makes very good looking vehicles but looks wont get you where you need to go. and dodge vehicles dont look too good when they are burnt as everyone i know would say, that has had this same issue.


Worst Features

improve the electrical issues, also to back up their customers when something of this nature happens like i said i know of about 4 people just in my small town that this has happened to and after wards they did not buy another dodge. something as serious as the vehicle burning totally needs to be addrressed by the maker. especially when we pay $30,000 for something. we are very dissatisfied customers.

Review

I have been driving this truck for the past three and half months, and all in all, I have to say this is a great truck. The interior is very well built and very comfortable. The exterior is very beautifully built, the truck looks very elegant yet powerful. It can fit in anywhere from the farm to the streets. The stock exhaust note has a very low rumble to it. The truck has a powerful out put when you need it to, but won't scare you senseless when you don't. The gas mileage isn't great, but its a full sized pickup, what do you expect? The only downfall to the entire truck is the transmission. I'd recommend this truck to anyone who is willing to pay the gas and looking for a lot of room.


Best Features

Interior, exterior design, radio, dash size, storage compartments, powerful engine.


Worst Features

a better built transmission
