2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD LB (5.9L 8cyl 5M)


Review

In two years of ownership, it has spent four months in the shop. 2 transmissions, 5 rear axles, electrical problems in the dashboard, tow mirror replacement, and now the steering column fell out. It has been towed to the dealership twice. The quad doors rattle and pop because they don't shut properly. Dodge paint sucks. The hood, roof and rocker panels are completely chipped. Fuel mileage is poor. 9 mpg towing and 16 mpg empty. When a Dodge owner tells you they are getting 22 mpg, they're telling you a lie. Steering is poor. On the freeway, the truck wanders terribly.


Best Features

Nothing... I take that back. Looking at it in the rear view mirror of my new Chevrolet Duramax as I leave the Chevy dealer.


Worst Features

Dodge should just give up. The new 2003 and 2004 design is worse than old body style. If the transmission and rear end cannot hold up to the 245 bhp/505 lb/ft of the old motor, I cannot see how it will withstand the 300 + bhp and 600 lb/ft of the new H.O. motor.

Review

THIS IS THE BESST DODGE TRUCK I HAVE EVER HAD, THIS IS MY 8TH DODGE. BUT THIS IS MY FIRST 3/4 TON. AND IT HAS BEEN GREAT! ONLY ONE {1} TRIP TO THE DEALERSHIP, TO PUT THE DRIVER'S SEAT CUSHION BACK IN PLACE, HAS POWER SEATS, WENT TOOO HIGH AND POPPED OUT OF TRACK, WAS FIXED IN LESS THEN AN HOUR. COLOR IS LIGHT ALMOND / TAN WITH 360CI {5.9L} V8 AND 4SPEED AUTO. WILL GET 13 - 16 MPG IN CITY AND 14 - 18 MPG ON THE HIGHWAY. (HAS TOWING PACKAGE AND 4.11 REAR GREARS}


Best Features

BIG.... MASSIVE FEELING DRIVING, BUT VERY EASY TO PARK. HAS A GREAT FACTORY SOUND SYSTEM.


Worst Features

NONE... JUST WISH THEY STILL MADE THE QUAD CAB WITH SWING OUT DOORS. DO NOT LIKE FOUR [4] DOOR TRUCKS!
