Review of the 2000 Dodge Ram Van

  • An archaic platform that still lends itself well to a variety of applications.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Bargain pricing, room for 15 passengers.

  • Cons

    Hasn't had a serious redesign in nearly 30 years, fuel-sucking engines.

  • What's New for 2000

    Minor changes come with the 2000 model year, including hood-mounted windshield-washer nozzles and chrome-clad wheels. Sealing has been improved to reduce noise and keep out the weather, and Ram vans get a six-speaker audio system as standard equipment.

This van is a workhorse

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Van 2500 3dr Ext Van

The only trouble I have ever had was the water pump going out at 120,000 miles which is not what I would call premature. Other than that I've had to replace the heater blower motor resistor, the turn signal flasher, and the bulbs in the overhead brake light. That's all. Not bad in my opinion. It now has 170,000 miles on it and is still in great shape (except for the paint peeling). It's a workhorse, having only failed on me when the water pump went out. Keep up on the regular maintenance and keep the fluids fresh and it will run forever. BTW, it's a 1500 half ton with a 318 5.2 liter v8 loaded about 1000 pounds over gross weight that I put 3500 one ton springs on. I love my Dodge van!
