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


Review

This truck is better than my last two trucks which were both Fords . It has more wheel hop durring tight turns while in 4 wheel drive than my other 4 x4's , 2 Fords and a GMC .The others had shorter wheel bases which may be the reason .


Best Features

I have had no problems of any kind with performance and like the 5.9 engine .


Worst Features

The thin paint scratches easly down to the primer . It appears too thin when scratched .

Review

I purchased this 01 Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4wd with the 360 back in January. So far it has been a pretty good truck. The brakes have started squeeking slightly so need to be replaced but that happens with any vehicle. The other problem I have had is the dash has started cracking which is a common problem and just kind of annoys me. The chrome grill has also started bubbling but not very noticable unless up close. That's the bad now for the good. I love the truck it's pretty powerful and fun to drive. Rides pretty good especially since mines lifted and mud tires. It does great offroad while looking great. The interior is comfortable and the 360 has plenty of power to haul you around town.


Best Features

4wd, steering wheel audio controls, fog lights, Overall look of the truck. I also like the rear seat a lot.


Worst Features

Fix the cracking dash which is a common problem, Fix the bubbling grill. Improve gas milage. Thats basically it. I love the truck other than those things.

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


Review

Good truck overall. Dodge needs to put a better transmission in this full sized truck. Just replaced for the second time at 121,000 miles. Terrible gas mileage of 13.5 city, 15.5 highway.


Best Features

Extremely comfortable truck which rides and handles well. Lots of good creature comforts.


Worst Features

A more reliable transmission and better fuel economy would be a great start. Heat and A/C system is not easy to control. Weak defrost setting. Center console is a little too big for my preference.

Review

Overall, very satisfied. Have done little more than change oil, basic maintenance. Only "major" issue so far has been water pump at $200. Does have a few irritating squeaks, but overall has been a good, reliable vehicle. Car seat in back holds young kids well, but back seat room and comfort rate a 1. Gets 17.7 mpg highway (to-from work), so not bad. Excellent front seat comfort for big people (I'm 6'4"). I'm not keen on the maintenance schedule (manual states to change plugs/wires every 30K). I did have to pay $500 to have this done ... no way a homeowner could change these without major difficulty, and it should be a simple thing to do. Air filter change could be made easier too.


Best Features

Front seat comfort, legroom; dependability (so far)


Worst Features

Back seat is not conducive to comfort except for kids in a car seat. Poor back seat legroom. Lot of little squeaks that are more annoying than detrimental to performance.

Review

All though I don't have a ton of miles on the truck, it's more fun than a pile of puppies to drive. Gas mileage isn't spectacular but it'll get the job done. Nice pulling capabilities, good ride, and lots of fun gadgets on this model. No real problems to speak of. I had the dealer go through it before the warranty ran out and take care of a couple of minor problems. Additions like cold air intake and catback are nice and help the HP/mileage a little.


Best Features

There's nothing like jumping into your truck when its 20 degrees outside and turning on the seat warmers to get warmed up in nothing flat. Love that information console above the mirror. Rockin' factory stereo.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Unless you have the Stereo/CD controls in the steering wheel, the controls on the dash are a little far away to reach. In-dash 6 CD changer would be a nice addition.
