2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This is an all around good truck. The 2500 hemi has lots of power but poor gas mileage. The only poor quality is the paint, which scratches very easy.


Best Features

lots of power


Worst Features

Use a higher quality paint and better gas mileage

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Getting ready to put the third transmision in the beast. Great truck except for Dodge not being able to build a decent transmission. Love the Cummins engine. Wish the transmission was up to the rest of the truck.


Best Features

Cummins engine


Worst Features

Find someone to provide a decent transmission. Dodge obviously can't do it on their own.

Review

I drove Chevy trucks and with a new 28 ft 5th wheel I had to get a deisel. I cannot say enough about this truck. I was test driving Ford F-350's for months until I finally test drove this 2003 2500 HO Cummins Turbo Diesel 4x4 SLT. Wow! This truck had 99,661 miles on it and this was the first time I ever drove a truck and just smiled! I love this truck in every way and it has torque for days. I took my 5th wheel to Breakenridge Colorado (10,000+ feet) from Colorado Springs, CO. and never even knew that it was back their with the wife and three kids worth of stuff! Even passed people with my foot barely on the gas! Looking foward to many more trips.


Best Features

Cummins HO turbodiesel


Worst Features

Unlock doors when key is shut off and headrest on the back seats

Review

Trouble with fuel guage required tank removal and was not covered by guarantee. Early replacement of all 16 spark plugs was costly. Mileage is unsatisfactory. Steering is too sensitive to road bumps. Differential shudders in slow turns. Hemi engine requires special care (extra oil) As a towing vehicle, the truck is satisfactory, and I tow a 30-foot travel trailer or usually tow a fishing boat.


Best Features

The interior is extremely comfortable and functional, and the Hemi engine is excellent for fast starts (pickup) at highway intersections.


Worst Features

The truck should get better gas mileage.The front suspension should be improved for better control on rough roads.
