2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Regular Cab ST 2dr Regular Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've owned mine for 8 years. Almost 80,000 miles. NO issues that cost me big money or inconvenience. What more could you expect?

2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Regular Cab ST 2dr Regular Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

In 2009 I bought a 2008 Ram 1500 3.6L with 9k miles.
The truck has been used for transportation only, no hauling or towing, it now has 53K miles.
I had to replace the power steering pump $450 and now need a new transmission $1800.
Buyer beware, the unlimited powertrain warranty does not transfer.
I will not buy another Dodge product.
Expensive lesson learned.

2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Regular Cab ST 2dr Regular Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Picked up a 6 cyl. Reg Cab for only $13,500. Have already had a few issues with it, spitting up gas when filling up and shaking between 60-65mph. The shaking has all but gone away on it's own, the spitting up gas was fixed by the dealer replacing the entire gas tank. Overall, not a bad truck. It gets terrible gas mileage but you know that going into it. It also rides a little rough but that's just a truck I guess. Also, if power is important to you, don't get the 6 cyl. engine. It's ok just cruising around, but sometimes lack power when going uphill or when passing.


Best Features

I think the truck itself is beautiful - I love the exterior. It seems to ride smoother once it's broken in.


Worst Features

The interior could be a little nicer, maybe less plastic everywhere. The 6 cyl. engine is a little weak, probably not for those who do a lot of hauling.

Review

Truck seems to drive fine however while cruising on the highway in slighly hilly area, the truck goes back into a passing gear as if it is stuggling for power. Louisiana is relatively flat land at that. Perhaps something is wrong with the transmission? Been like that since it was new.


Best Features

Size and looks


Worst Features

improvements to the drive tran seems to go into passing gear even on slight inclines

Review

Bought this basic truck two months ago. Have enjoyed driving it for this short period of time. Wanted a big truck with all of the amenities that came with it, got exactly what I wanted for a great price!


Best Features

Big truck ride with plenty of power to spare!


Worst Features

At this point and time nothing comes to mind!
