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

Review

Laramie Hemi optioned out. Tow package Hemi, 45RFE 5 Speed and 3.92 limited slip, body color bumpers and grill. 20 in. wheels. Gorgeous truck. Sticker price $35,000 +. This has been a great truck. Handles like a sports car, lots of power. Gas mileage 20MPG@55,16- 17MPG@70, In town around 13. But I expected that. In shop once for warped rotors, covered under warranty (7/70 waranty no longer available) Now have a rear end whine and engine ticking noise that are going to be covered under warranty. No other mechanical problems. Transmission shifts perfectly when truck is loaded tentative when without load but that is the way it should be. A beaut with an 8,800lb towing capacity. Would buy again.

Favorite Features

Terrific interior. leather, incredible storage, rear fold flat load floor is awesome Hemi,seats, 6 disc CD player, fog lights,single headlight system is weak but fog lights fill the void, transponder security sytem, handling, 8 way seats both with lumbar adjustment. Just really an awesome truck.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage (supoposedly done in'06) Better headlights, better quality control for rear end and some engine components. 3/36 warranty indicates Dodge was getting a lot of warranty work claims between new 3/36 month end and the old 7/70 end warranty. Buy a drivetrain warranty to 100,000 to be safe.
