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


Review

I have been nothing but overly impressed with my RAM. It is extremely safe and I have not yet been able to make it go sideways because of the sensitivity of the 2WD and limited slip differential. I drive vehicles hard and harder when I test drive them. 20,000 miles in one year. The ONLY complaint I have is that there is no undercarriage protection, meaning if you go through a puddle, that water is coming up inside the engine.


Favorite Features

2WD extremely responsive


Suggested Improvements

Undercarriage protection, some kind of skid plate or something that prohibits muddy water from infiltrating the engine. Other than that I LOVE IT!!!!

Love how it drives and handles. Does idle somewhat roughly. The clearance is awesome.Stereo sounds very good and clear. The main reason i liked this truck was the grill!!

Review

Having had only GM cars and trucks in the past, this was quite a leap for me! I have been quite pleased with the Ram so far. The truck drives and looks great. I am impressed with the road manners and braking! The interior is sharp and functional, and the seats are very comfortable.


Favorite Features

HEMI power, fantastic brakes, power pedals, behind the seat storage on the regular cab, overall handling, Homelink transmitter, compass, auto- dimming rearview mirror, steering wheel audio controls, heated seats, storage under middle seat


Suggested Improvements

power folding outside mirrors with integrated turn signals like GM, automatic on/off headlights like GM, FACTORY installed satellite radio, FACTORY spray-on bedliner, STANDARD side impact air bags, STANDARD illuminated sunvisor mirrors

Review

So far, so good. This beast handles like a car, has a good turning ability, and has no fish-tailing...even with a long bed !


Favorite Features

Behind the seat room is superior. Great interior spaciousness. Easy-to-read white gauges. Tough sounding (even with a '6').


Suggested Improvements

I'll probably be the only one asking for a hybrid Ram !

Review

Haven't had long, but so far it's excellent. Love the way it handles, steering is really car-like. Overall, it's extremely capable and a lot of fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Storage behind the seats, and reclining seats (never had them in my previous reg cab trucks).


Suggested Improvements

Wish gas mileage was better, but it is a full size truck so it's to be expected. And it is better than others in this class.

Yeah, it's got a hemi

Review

My father has a 3.7 liter that he loves. I've driven it on occasion and was impressed with the quality compared with my last '97 Dodge. The local dealer had a Hemi in stock with he options I wanted so I bought it. The truck is very fast(for a truck). 60 mph comes up in a little over 6 seconds. Mine is a regular cab w/ 3.92 gears and limited slip. I paid $19,077.


Favorite Features

Hemi, Hemi, Hemi. 5 speed auto is nice, plus the short gears with the limited slip.


Suggested Improvements

Rake of the A-pillar is too low. I'm a tall guy and sometimes it intrudes on my headroom as it is too angled. The old trucks, which were more square didn't have the same issue, but the highway mileage suffered.
