2001 Dodge Ram Wagon 2500 3dr Ext Van (5.2L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought new in 2000 for family of 6. 12 passenger with 360 cid, tow package and rear air. Has never let us down. nly had to replace front bearings once at 69,000. Chronic squeaky brakes. Otherwise mechanically rock solid, but the interior trim is poor quality with seat foam degradation, door panels coming loose and trim screws loose or falling out all over the place. Rode hard when empty, smooth when full. Love the versatility, better than any SUV. It was invaluable when building my deck and toting big screen TVs home or for friends. One downside is you're always on the call list to help people move. Glad we had it, but now that the kids are grown, time to get a smaller vehicle.


Favorite Features

Size! Cargo capacity when seats are out is second to none. Of course, in parking lots, that's a big negative.


Suggested Improvements

Better trim durability.

2001 Dodge Ram Wagon 2500 3dr Ext Van (5.2L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought used w/ 18k. Has big V8 with OD and HD rear gearing/ tow package. 14 MPG hwy - 13 city. Pulls 8k+ trailer with no problems. Little slow from 0- 30, but adequate above that even when towing. After 4 yrs and 70 k, no major problems. A bit large for maneuvers in small spaces.


Favorite Features

Easy to drive, decent comfort level even on long trips. Ability to remove 2nd & 3rd row seats give you lots of climate controlled hauling space.

Review

An absolute dog. Way underpowered for a 3/4 ton. Replaced front bearings five times by 85,000 miles. Transmission problem, chewed up brakes, electronic troubles, and on and on despite excellent maintenance. Finally gave up and traded on a Toyota 4runner.


Favorite Features

Perfect layout for what we used it for ... somtimes cargo, sometimes passengers.


Suggested Improvements

They don't make 'em anymore and you can see why!
