Review

Great truck for day to day use, however
it is lacking in the following areas.
Fair interior,
lacks style/plain.
no white face guages,red
tail lights,amber turn lights, Could
use some restyling to reflect a more
ram like appearance. Dodge should also
offer more choices regading performance
& handling options on the 4 door truck.
Ram Air option would be also a good
idea. Disappointed with
fuel milage and performance with
5.9 approx 17mpg on highway dispite
several modifications.

For a 5.9L I expected a lot more power
in this size truck.


Best Features

Body styling, reliability.


Worst Features

More ram like appearance, more performance, & handling options, more horsepower,more body enhancemants,IE: ground effects and spoiler kits. More stylish interior.

Review

34000 plus miles to date, and only
malfunction has been a lose rear view
mirror. The Goodyear Eagle tires were
worn down to less then 1/4th of a
penny tread left at 30,000 miles. Not
very impressive tire performance. I
have replaced with Michelins best
light truck tires, and the comfort and
handling is greatly improved.


Best Features

1. Overdrive 2. Visability 3. 4.7 Liter V8 Engine is a super performer in this truck.


Worst Features

AN ALL WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) option for those of us who could use four wheel traction some times, i.e.steep and slippery boat ramps,trips into snow country,etc.

Review

I think this has to be the biggest
mistake I have ever made in my life. I
was going to get the Tundra but was
blinded by the rebate. I paid $26000
for the truck after the rebate and I
see its only worth $16,000 (private
party value) I have never had a
vehicle depreciate so fast. For the
money i've lost - not including the
$376 monthly payments for the last year
(total cost of ownership) $1376 per
month I could have paid a limo driver
to drive me around. The truck has been
in the shop 6 times in the year for
clunking, check engine light and
stalling. I will never ever buy
another chrysler product again!


Best Features

It's comfortable and quiet.


Worst Features

More power, better build quality, stiffer shocks, better brakes, stronger ball joints, better fuel economy, A/C that is actually cold
