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


I am sure that my taste in automobiles has changed since my purchase of this truck. The truck is acceptable, and that is all. The gas mileage is horrible! Gentle driving 14 mpg on the freeway, but it is 4wd. Reliability is less than spectacular. I have had a few issues with it, including a recall for brake brackets. In all honesty, if I were to buy a truck, I would look at Toyota. Overall, I am disappointed in the truck.

Best Features

Decent performance. Good looking truck. The 4wd is nice when you really need it.

Worst Features

Seats are extremely uncomfortable, particularly on long drives. Mileage is simply terrible. There has to be a way to get decent power and fuel mileage for a truck. I have never really trusted this vehicle completely, I just question whether it will get me there and back again.
