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


Review

This is my first new pickup truck and
I'm never going back to a car. Traded
a 2001 Lincoln Continental because we
needed something to two our boat and I
had a used Dodge pickup before. The
build quality has improved on this
Chrysler product so much so that I
can't find the words adequate to
describe it. Everything fits. Corners
fit. Moldings are straight. You can
sure tell the Mercedes influence in
these vehicles. Most comfortable seats
I've ever driven with on long distance
trips. Not even a hint of a rattle or
problem. If you test drive one of
these you'd better be prepared to buy
because you WILL want to. Solid,
Solid, Solid.


Best Features

This is the tightest, most well built vehicle I've ever owned even if it's got a Chrysler badge. Mercedes influence is sure showing. That Hemi V8 has no peers. Raw smooth power under any conditions. Not a hint of problems. Reliablilty perfect. This is the ultimate truck.


Worst Features

They could engineer it so that the rear spark plugs would be easier to get to. There's 2 plugs per cylinder. I also wonder why it hold 7 quarts of oil as oppossed to 5. Thats about the only things I can thing of. The 5 speed auto tranny is flawless so far with synthetic fluid.

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


Review

Had always driven GM vehicles but cost
and warranty made Dodge a viable
alternative. I have been very pleased
and can't imagine going back to a GM
product. GM and Ford will have to get
in line with warranties and pricing to
better compete.


Best Features

Power of the Hemi. It is very fun to drive and is intimidating out on the highway.


Worst Features

Lack of fuel efficiency will ultimately force me to part with it. Averages only 11.5 mpg. Will go to the Cummins next time for sure.

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


Review

Truck is a diesel, runs well, but has a
horrible ride. This is normal for this type of
truck. I bought it for hauling my travel trailer
and it does a good job there, but otherwise
its a beast to park to say the least. Interior is
plastic. Seats are not coushioned as wellas
they should be. Rear seating is ok for kids,
but folds down for extra storage, a plus.Truck
has nice lines.


Best Features

Stereo, 750 option


Worst Features

Fix the ride I would NOT buy again

Review

I bought my Dodge 2500 SLT 4x4 Crew Cab
and was immediately impressed with the
overall appearance compared to previous
Dodge models. The ride is stiff as
could be expected from a truck this
size. Although the power is impressive
from the Hemi, the handling is not as
good as you might expect. I've noticed
that the trucks body is higher (hood)
then equivilent Fords and Chevy's I
have compared it to. Get ready spend
some money at the pump after purchasing
this pig! Average fuel consumption is
between 13-14 mpg. Overall, I really
like it, and I cannot imagine myself in
anything else on the market right now.
