2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I agree with anyone that says the V6 is underpowered. If I were to do it over again, and have more money, I'd buy the Hemi version. The 6 is grossly underpowered. All in all, good daily driver, but for an enthusiast, it makes for a pretty boring truck. If only I had gotten the V8, I might be having more fun.


Favorite Features

The looks. Can't beat the look of the new Rams. Very comfortable ride too.


Suggested Improvements

Don't even offer the V6 in this truck, it takes away so much from the driving fun. Keep the 6's in the Dakota if you have to keep them in a truck at all.

Review

I love this truck. The gas mileage could be better, but I knew this when I bought it. The V6 is not quite big enough for this truck, but it is acceptable. I don't haul big loads nor pull anything. It handles very well. For a truck this size, the turn pattern is tight. This truck has not given me a minutes problem and I would recommend you get one. I've had mine 2 years and still love driving it. I think I'll run to the store.


Favorite Features

The look of the front end. I had a big brush guard (that's right, go ahead and pull that ECHO out in front of me!) put on and this really made it look BAD@#%!


Suggested Improvements

The seats seem to set up a little high in the front. On long trips, it would be nice to be able to lower it.

Review

Overall a good truck, had the front rotors replaced at 10,000 miles, rear differential replaced at 63,000 miles. Fuel economy in town is HORRIBLE. Highway economy is acceptable but still not great even for a full size pickup with a V8. To do it over again I would probably pick the 5.7 Hemi over this trucks 4.7 standard V8.


Favorite Features

Nice electronic 5 speed automatic transmission. Base CD sound system is good for factory. Throttle response is very good for a truck with under 275 HP.


Suggested Improvements

Cheap bearing apparently used in rear end, suggest higher quality bearing or full synthetic fluid fill at factory. Front rotors warp easilly, suggest better quality or slotted/drilled design.
