2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD SB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)


Review

No problems. Great truck. Comfortable
on long trips. Not much room in back
seat,adults would be a little cramped.


Best Features

Radio doesnt have to be switched from fm1 to fm2 because buttons hold two stations-push button once for 1 preset, then press again for 2nd preset,Very convenient


Worst Features

Make Glove compartment easier to reach from drivers seat. Make cargo light easier to use

Review

I bought the Dodge 1500 Ram SLT Laramie
in March 01.
No problems until this year Feb 04,
with 1 month left to go on the waranty
and 28500 miles the trans began to slip.
The truck was tied up for two weeks at
the dealer before they finally agreed
to repair it.
The front tires wear on the outside
even though i rotate every 3000 miles
and had the front end adjusted at 12000
and 20000 miles. The front wheel
bearings will be next I guess.


Best Features

Interior comfort, front seats are very comfortable. Nice exterior lines.


Worst Features

Improve hvac system. Improve the Dodge service department!

Review

I have the extended cab 5.9L SPORT, I
LOVE IT! Itty bitty girl, in a big
truck, but hey, it works. I have yet to
lose a race =). Flowmasters are a
definate must b/c Dodges have a
distinct low rumble... yummy. Very
roomy in the interior and under the
hood, I love working on it. Lacks in
rear seat space, pulls to the right,
and I have a squeeking noise coming
from the front, I just turn up the
radio though. Fast for a big heavy
truck, and so many extras to put on it.
Only thing I hate is the gas mileage. I
average 13 mpg. I'm sure racing doesn't
help that either though...


Best Features

Same color grille and bumper on the sport package. 5.9L ENGINE BABY!!! Guys check me out all the time in my big beautiful truck, then I kick their butt in racing... I love it.


Worst Features

GAS MILEAGE SUCKS!!! If I wasn't spending so much on gas every week I could afford to buy all the extras I want to put on this bad boy! Extended cab lacks legs room.

2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Truck has been virtually trouble free
for 32,000 miles (I'm on the 3rd
driver's side master power window/door
lock switch). Driver's side shock
absorber bolt loosened once. Upgraded
to 17" rims and Bridgestone Dueler/AT
Revo tires and much happier. Gas mpg
is 10 mpg in winter using 4wd and 18
mpg using 2wd on interstate(acceptible
for V-8 truck).


Best Features

5.9 motor, K&N filter, Gibson exhaust, short bed and reg. cab makes some exciting driving.


Worst Features

Dodge needs to offer more dealer knowledge for mopar high performance and dress up parts.

Review

I have 34000 miles on my 4by4 slt with
the 5.9 in it.Most impressed by its
offroad prowess.I remember the first
winter i had it.It snowed 17 inches in
1 day,and on a small residential road
leading to a recreation area,only half
was plowed.The other half had a good 2
ft of snow.Anyways,i drove right thru
the 2 ft of snow like a hot knife thru
butter.No problems to date.One minor
irritation.It has a slight pull to the
right.Could be a design flaw,as
numerous accounts of this
occurance,and no remedy that i know of.


Best Features

Drivability.Everone complains about the dated 5.9,but it has plenty of power for me


Worst Features

Fix the steering ,Dodge.
