RAM TOUGH, Not Really!!!
By B.W. Evans on
Vehicle2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)
ReviewI have owned many Dodges over the
years, but this one has had the worst
repair frequency record ever!! It has
the 4 Wheel Anti-Lock Brakes, and they
just DO NOT STOP THE TRUCK. It has
been back to the dealer at least 9
times for repair. I finally had
someone else bypass the ABS for the
front wheels, and now it works fine.
But, this is not a true fix. I guess
the only way to get anyone to fix it
right is to have a serious enough
accident. The only other bad thing
with this vechile is that it gets VERY
poor fuel mileage... The sticker says
12, but I usually get only 8. Dealer
says that this is normal also... My
advise, buy a Japanees truck.
Best FeaturesSLT +. Leather Seats are great on trips, and CD/Cassette Infinity Radio is 1st rate. Ride quality is very good. Note: THis is a 150 Quad Cab with 8ft bed. This makes a big difference on the road.
Worst FeaturesFIX or eliminate the 4 Wheel ABS system before someone gets killed. Ensure that the vehicle can get at least 16 mpg on the road.
