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


Review

After two great months I am still in awe of this truck, I only have two complaints 1. I wish my wife didnt like to drive it so much, then I wouldnt be driving a minivan to work. and 2. I wish I had gotten the 5.7 HEMI instead of the 4.7 so I could say YES to all the ????

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


Review

The truck is a 2003 SLT 1500 Quad Cab 4x4 Hemi with 20inch wheels. The brake rotors warp, which cause the truck to bounce during braking. Initial warpage occurs around 3000 miles, most dealerships appear to not acknowledge the problem. Now that the truck has passed 12k miles, I found a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that suggests turning the rotors and replacing the pads. The rotors need replaced and not turned as it is a defect in materials.


Best Features

The HEMI is awesome, its a shame it won't stop without rattling you and your cargo.


Worst Features

Install high quality rotors!

Review

I have a 2003 Hemi with around 8k on miles and it and it hasn't been back except for an Oil Change. Great Truck it has way more power and people always tell me what a great truck it is. I also love the room and can put 6 people in the truck no problem. I have never regreted not having the Bucket Seats


Best Features

Hemi engine and 4doors as well as being able to put 6 peopl in it.


Worst Features

Not much but maybe more luxury features like automatic lights standard.

Review

This truck is the nicest vehicle I have owned. The sound of the Hemi alone makes me want to drive it. Responsive, tall, powerful, it just looks like a mean machine. No regrets.


Best Features

Lots of chrome with the 20" wheels. Power, power, power. I like the understated design of the interior.


Worst Features

Once again, fuel economy could be improved, but don't lose that rumble.

Review

I still like the truck after having driven it now for almost 7,000 Miles. The HEMI has all the power necessary for pulling the mountains in Virginia. Rotors warped at 5000 miles.


Best Features

HEMI, power seat, 60/40 rear seat


Worst Features

Larger fuel tank Better cooling for brake rotors
