2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Quad Cab 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

After owning chevy trucks the last 11 years,this is my first Dodge,and i love it! The handling and suspension is excellent! The 5.7 Hemi is great! This is the best handling truck I have ever driven in snow! I only have had this truck for 15 months, and have 19000 miles, so far no problems. I have owned 3 s-10's(1995,1999,2002)and a 2001 chevy silverado, these vehicles have been very unreliable, after the 3 year 36000 mile warranty expired, repairs were needed. I will find out in 1 or 2 years if the Ram is more reliable than the Chevys! The radio is better than the Chevys, a lot better! This truck is the biggest, baddest, and fastest truck available. This is the best truck available!


Best Features

5.7 Hemi, overhead console with mpg readings, 20 inch tires, 4wd,and POWER! Faster than any Ford, Chevy, or foreign truck!!


Worst Features

Gas mileage. I average 10 in city and 14 in highway. Worse than the EPA of 13 city and 17 highway. If I would get the EPA ratings I would be happy.

Review

I traded a Ford F-150 for this truck. Mechanically, I have no issues with this truck. Comfort is another issue. Ride quality is extremely stiif. I know this is a truck, but the Ford is far more forgiving. Wind noise from the ill- fitting doors is unreal. I can slip my fingers in the gap between the windshield and the door. Evan after adding additional rubber to the gap the noise is still annoying. Fuel mileage is poor as well. Maybe it's just me, but 12.5 on the small V-8 could be improved.


Best Features

Favorite attribute is the engine rumble. It lets you know you're in a truck


Worst Features

Redesign the way the front doors fit around the windshield. Also, let the power windows work after the engine is turned off. The odometer still stays lit up after turning off the key. WHY???

Review

The hemi gives good gas mileage at 65/70 highway-but-drops in city driving to 12/13. ride is excellent and room for 6 passengers except for the shift to 4 wheel drive the person in the front seat does not have much room. OK, for short distances but overall comfortable and a good drive/work/towing truck would highly recomend a test drive and purchase.


Best Features

Comfortable ride and roomy interior. Fun to drive and the visability is excellent


Worst Features

Remove the 4 wheel drive shifter and use an electric system-or-nove the shifting rod closer to the dash to provide more space to the center passenger.

Review

I've found my Dodge truck to be both fun and tough. It went through being rear ended at 20+ mph with only minor damage and no occupant injuries. It does pretty well on mpg with averages of over 20 mpg on the highway. I drove it through a huricane in SC through headlight deep water and high winds with no problems at all. It handles well and with the hemi engine has plenty of power and performance. I am very pleased with this truck.


Best Features

The cab is comfortable and everything is easy to get to.


Worst Features

Add lighting to illiminate the cupholder area.

Review

I got the truck at 7000 miles, and have loved it ever since. My satisfaction only improved once I had dual flowmasters installed on it. My wife loves it on trips, but hates me driving, because i like to use the HEMI power. This is the first vehicle I have ever owned that she prefers to ride in over her 4cyl car.


Best Features

Power! Clean, simple, interior design. overall, the best truck I have owned.


Worst Features

The only problem i have is that my truck came with the tow mirrors, which I dont need too often. So, its a pain on the toll way and narrow freeway lanes. However, for $285 dollars, smaller factory mirrors can be purchased.
