Rusting Exhaust
By Ann on 10/01/10 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab SLT 4dr Mega Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Loved this truck when I bought it, but the exhaust has rusted at 48,000 miles. Chrysler was no help, found out the truck was made in Mexico. I think for a truck that has been maintained and well taken care of should have an exhaust system that did not rust out so soon. My Chevy Duramx has held up better, no rust underneath, no problems with the truck.

BALL JOINTS AND U-JOINTS

Review

Cummins Diesel will tow anything on you can think of. But the downfall on my truck is the front suspension components and the weak transmission. I love the truck to death, yet hate the front components. Family of five can go on 1000+ mile trips comfortably while refueling only once. The enormous fuel tank allows this. Added 4.5Inch Exhaust, AFE Stage 2 Intake and also a Hypertech Econ Tuner to increase fuel mileage. My truck is definitely a workhorse!

Go Cummings

Review

Best truck, best vehicle I have ever had. Cummings will pull anything you have. Added larger tires to fill in wheel wells. Went from 265/70-17 to 285/70-17 added about 1 inch in height. Does very well off road. Get 19-20 city and 20-22 highway. If you are looking for a porsche ride go buy a porsche. This is a truck and rides accordingly. The only thing that has broken on it so far is the power seat. It will go up, back, forward but not down. Love the option of a sun roof. Huge back seat. Had to sit in it a couple of times. Love the fact that the back seat reclines. I will drive the truck until it falls apart.

No nonsense review

Review

This is a diesel megacab, 2WD review. 93000 on the odometer-maybe will be called the best overall vehicle I've owned. On the road 22.4 mpg, in town 19-no hot doggin, and yes, the truck is capable of spinning the tires- whenever. Great room for a big/tall guy, and the person behind him. Not an intown vehicle-is not a short radius turner, and at 7600#, it doesn't handle or brake like a Porsche. But it is a very capable truck. Ride is truck like. Removed a leaf in the rear to help soften ride-I don't haul much. Three decided mfg. defects- engine has a breather tube which drips black engine oil, exhaust pipe too short-soots the rear quarter panel, spokes on wheel (al) had chatter marks.

This truck is a work horse. Tons of room in the back and plenty of power with the Cummins. I average 16-18 mpg in the city and 20-22 mpg on the highway (hand calculated). Best Truck I have owned.

Too bad for a pickup

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab Laramie 4dr Mega Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Great truck for work and family. $250 chip gave me 120 hp and 3 more mpg. Took several long trips comfort and excellent fuel mileage.(but not quite as good as my 2004 2500 I had before.) I still range in the 19-21 mpg hwy if I keep it under 70. Cruising range in the 600-700 mile range. Will tow anything you hook it to have towed a 24k bachhoe with mine. And haul a 12k skidsteer regularly

'06 Ram 2500 Megacab 4X4
By richter on 07/09/07 12:24 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab Laramie 4dr Mega Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I had a transmission solenoid go out around 10,000 miles causing slipping between 1st and 2nd gear. The warranty covered it but it took a special engineer to come down and isolate the problem. The truck is tough to maneuver. The megacab offers ample room inside but is not worth the sacrifice. This truck sticks out of my garage by more than a foot. Performance was lacking until an aftermarket exhaust and air intake were installed.

Dodge, you don't have to any more

Review

You don't have to "Dodge" them anymore. They are well built, powerful, long lasting and fun to drive. The truck has been above average on all things, fit and finish, gas mileage, handling, and most of all very fun to drive. It will spin the wheels at any moment if you get after it. No more worrying about getting into traffic, you floor board it and off it goes. In fact you have to watch the speedo. You are doing 90 before you notice, No motor noise, no wind noise, and you can actually use the drive up now without killing the engine. Great job Dodge!

Review of Dodge Mega Cab 2500 4x4

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab SLT 4dr Mega Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Fuel economy averages 10-11 MPG around town and only about 13-14 at 75 MPH. The ride is quite rough, much rougher than my '97 half ton extra cab. The Hemi engine is very powerful and runs smoothly. The truck looks stunning after it is freshly washed and earns many compliments. The room in the backseat is outstanding.

Hot in a megacab

Review

Fuel mileage is poor unless you are on the highway, cruise on, going 65 or less. A/C stinks if the temps are above 90. Even worse when humidity is high or above 100.
