Nice truck. A couple of minor issues
from factory concerning paint on rear
door pillar. Dealer fixed without
issue. Other parts needing addressing
were driver side console has play
making it a nuisance to put windows up
and down. Missing screw from plenum
underneath instr. panel. Dealer didn't
fix console and they put bolt instead
of screw on plenum. Again, lovely sale
and truck but back to the old typical
service issue that I hoped not to
relive on my lifetime of owning an
American car again. Oh well nice truck
just disappointing service.
4.7 goes, lots of room for family and
storage in short bed. Tacoma/Tundra
too small when talking room. Chevy &
Ford too expensive. A lot of truck for
Love to have better mileage. Dodge
Service. Typical "I don't care or it's
not my problem" service attitude that I
haven't had to deal with since I owned
an 87 Chevy Camaro. Since then I've
gone foreign. Makes you think twice.
I have been driving my 2003 now for a
year. I have 25,000 miles on it now,
most of it driving back and forth from
California to Florida pulling a boat or
trailer. It is very comfortable and
has plenty of power for my needs. I
would recommend this truck to anyone
who is looking for one over the F-150.
After 25,000 miles, it is still quiet
inside without any rattles or creaks
which is my biggest pet peave. the
2001 and prior models had way too many
rattles and creaks from the doors and
interior which they have completely
corrected with the 2002+ model. My
truck is a 5 speed manual trans and I
would definately buy another Ram but
with an automatic.
The fold down center
console/seat/armrest. Fold up back
a few 110 outlets would be a big help.
A different design for the extra large
fold out mirrors for pulling trailers
would be good. I cannot get my truck
in the garage without folding the
mirrors in manually... or an auto fold
Beautiful truck!! A wonderful purchase!
So much so That I just went and bought
another Dodge Pickup (Hemi) after 35
years with General Motors products.
There really is no comparison between
the Dodge and Chevrolet. The Chevy`s
that I have owned have rattled and
clinked from the time I bought them and
the Dodge`s have been sturdy. The
Reliability between the 2 is also
mismatched, The First Dodge has never
seen a garage and has 65,000 miles on
it in a very short time. The Silverado
had seen the shop more times than
fingers on both hands by this mileage.
The looks are not even close.
The Engine and interior
NONE. I honestly mean that. I love
everything about both of my Rams
