2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased a loaded Sport Ram 1500 4
door about 7 months ago and haven't
regretted it in the least. The Ram
gives me plenty of leg, head, and
shoulder room. The interior is clean
and uncluttered but full of useful
storage space. This is my first Dodge
but it won't be my last. The Dodge is
my favorite full sized truck on the
market, it is also one of the most
affordable between Ford, Dodge, and
Chevy. I could buy more truck for less
money with a Dodge, and feel I got a
superior product as well. Its heavy,
safe, smooth, and dependable.


Best Features

Folding storage panels under the rear split seat are extremely handy. The premium sound system (infinity) is wonderful as are the steering wheel mounted audio controls. Visibility is exceptional, large windows eliminate blind spots. Great ride, smooth handling, tight turning radius.


Worst Features

The only thing that I see that could use some improvement is the fuel mileage. Aside from that I think its perfect.

Review

I traded a '99 Chevy 1500 X-cab LT Z71,
back in March for this 02 Dodge 1500
4DR,4x4 SLT Sport. The Chevy handled
better, had much more power, did not
bounce all over the road when I hit a
bump, and got much better gas mileage.
If I had it to do all over again, I
would have gone back to a Chevy. I
really like the new look and 4 doors of
this vehicle but thats about it. The
transmission is not geared as well as
my old Chevy and just doesnt feel like
a truck with a 360 in it.


Best Features

Interior is plush, stereo system is very nice, lots or interior space and 4 doors are a big plus. Looks great especially with the 20" rims.


Worst Features

Gas Mileage, Suspension, Handling, rear defogger, transmission, engine power, and I'll say it again GAS MILEAGE, get memory seats

Review

I bought my pickup in August of
2002. The dealer had a demo with 13000
miles that had the options (Crew cab,
Dark red, 4.7V8, Premium seats,
aluminum wheels) that I wanted. I now
have over 25000 miles on the truck. I
have really enjoyed the smooth quiet
ride (for a truck) and the spacious
cab. I highly recommend the premium
seats. The engine is adequate but
could use more power especially for the
amount of fuel it consumes (average
15.4 MPG). I hardly notice the
transmission working. The truck feels
stable and easy to maneuver. Over all I
am very
satisfied.


Best Features

The best features are the four-door cab big but not to big and the style.


Worst Features

better fuel economy.

Review

The truck is great I love it. The only
thing wrong is I get A LOT of WIND
SOUND on the drivers door. I took it in
to Carmax in Los ANgeles and they tell
me nothing is wrong. I will try back
with Frahm but if they dont fix it I
will be trying a Ford in two years.


Best Features

Truck looks great and is full of power


Worst Features

Fix my drivers door for the wind.

Review

Lone Star edition of the Dodge Ram Crew
Cab is great. Fun to drive and makes
you feel like the king of the road!
Disappointment is gas mileage - only 11
to 12 in town and about 15.5 at 75mph
and about 17 if you only drive no
faster than 65mph. I traded in a 2001
Chevy Silverado Quad Cab 1500 for this
and have not been disappointed, except
for gas mileage.


Best Features

20 inch wheels really set off what is already a great looking truck. The four full doors with rear windows that roll all the way down is really a plus. Posi-traction and 4 wheel disc brakes also a plus on Lone Star Edition.


Worst Features

Gas mileage.
