Vehicle2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (5.9L 8cyl 5M)
ReviewBought the vehicle new with an "over- build, under-use" mentality. I hauled a cabover camper (1800 lbs) in the back of the truck for approximately 3K of the 58K miles I put on the truck. Front brake caliper failure at ~45K miles; serious damage to front rotor, cost $1K to repair. Transmission failure at 58K miles, cost $32K to repair. The CTD is bullet-proof, no doubt, but the Dodge components matched to it are of poor quality and reliability. Bad experience with dealership repair center as well. Lost my booty on this vehicle -- Daimler/Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge and I will part ways for the rest of my natural life . . .
Best FeaturesPowerful Cummins Turbo-Diesel.
Worst FeaturesDodge has a reliability problem with this truck and I don't see how they can deny it. They need to re-evaluate their engineering staff and make reliability top priority in their products.
