2009 Ram 2500 HEMI stinks
By Ed on

Vehicle

2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab LB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I traded for this thinking it would be better/less expensive on gas than my Cummins. I get religiously 14.3mpg on the highway, and towing on relatively level, some rolling hills, 6500# - 8.7mpg. I am putting 89oct in it and that costs what I paid for diesel. Oh it's loaded with electric stuff, but this truck is too heavy for an over hyped dead HEMI. It needs the 6 speed tranny and Dodge just shouldn't have trash like this out. Now I'm STUCK with this dog, and I can't say enough bad about it. If you want to haul, ANYTHING, get a diesel and forget this hemi junk. I HATE IT, and I can't scream it enough. The Sirius radio won't even show the title playing - like my $25 Sirius addon radio!HATEIT

Favorite Features

Life time power train warranty is it's only good feature

Suggested Improvements

Put in a radio that shows the Sirius titles, add 6 speed tranny like the diesel has, fix that fuel lie-o-meter that NEVER is close to average mpg.
