2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 Laramie 4dr Mega Cab SB DRW (6.7L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


Review

I have written one review a few months after I bought it; however, times have changed. I have owned it now 2 1/2 years and I can assure you of one thing: first and last Dodge. Multiple recalls, the ride is getting worse, gas mileage sucks beyond belief, check engine light comes on why? Should I have bought a Ford? don't know, but what I do know is this: NEVER AGAIN. Dodge can take my 40k and shove it. It's for sale if you know anyone looking for a nice truck....


Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements

Review

I haul drilling equipment the first 10k miles my truck was in the shop about 16 to 18 times same problem all the time check motor light running out of fuel to the motor under load I got tired of it Dodge offered to give me back $30,000 of the $50,000 I paid for the truck well that was bull, a friend of mine told me of a old diesel mechanic that had a fix for it so I went to see him i left my truck there for the day he told me I would have no warranty but I feel like I have no warranty any how when I came back he had a pile of junk on the floor that looked like cats tubing and hoses and he went in to my dash and killed the red light I now have 32k miles no problems and 23 mpg on the highway its fixed


Suggested Improvements

get rid of blue tec that is the best motor dodge ever had by far I'm getting 18 to 19 mpg pulling 9000 lbs and 21 to 23 empty. beat that !

Review

We just got our truck last month and we love it. We upgraded from a 2500 hemi to the 3500 dualy with the mega cab and were amazed with the amount of room and power in the truck. The dualy was an unneccesary feature for us considering the most we ever tow is 8,000 pounds, but it is nice knowing that there's not much out there that you cant tow. The only reason I put an 8 on fuel economy is that it only has 1500 miles on it right now so it isnt broken in enough to get more than ten mpg. This truck is so much fun to drive and I've gotton so many compliments on it. It looks so good at night with all the lights on it.


Favorite Features

The huge cab -the way the seats in the back fold flat. The interior leather. The towing capacity. All the storage areas in the truck. The bluetooth. Cummins deisel. The engine braking that you can turn on and off


Suggested Improvements

A bigger glove box in the front. that thing it tiny! The chime on the seatbelt gets annoying too. Other than that it is a great truck and I think well have it for a long time
