2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Buy this truck for looks, performance,
or just to say you have a Hemi but
don't buy it if you plan to commute
with it. You will not be pleased with
10 to 12 mpg using the required mid
grade fuel. $$$$$


Best Features

Rides like a dream.


Worst Features

Find a way to get more mpg !!

Review

This was a great truck the first 3000
miles,great power 3000 miles is number
the truck would shake when brakeing had
to turn rotors install new brake
pads ,liked the 20" wheels untill the
chrome started staining replaced 2
wheels,replaced pass side front & rear
glass the glass would scratch when it
was lower.Now the HEMI 5.7 at 4700
miles heard a ticking noise from the
right side of the engine was a broken
rocker arm after 26 day's dodge fixed
the engine. 14 days later the tick
noise is back.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Have 17,500 mile with no significant
mechanical problems. Love the handling
for it's size with the 20" wheels.
Purchased before the HEMI was available
on the 1500's, but the 5.9 is adequate
for the work and driving I do.
Interior is perfect for family of 4
with young children. Storage areas are
good for the small stuff you carry with
you in the cab. Only problem I had is
with the brake rotors warping. Better
cooling or better rotor design or both
is needed. John W.


Best Features

Interior Space, 20" Wheels, pickup box is bigger than most for a quad shorty, Love the exterior design and ride height. Change to rack and pinion steering helps handling a lot


Worst Features

Brake Rotors and Gas Milage. Period!

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST Rwd LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I've owned 3 trucks previous, a Ford, a
Chevy, and a GMC. None were as quiet,
smooth, or powerful as this one. Huge
interior, rear seating plenty for
adults. Tows my camper or utility
trailor loaded with 4-wheelers without
any strain or significant change in gas
mileage.


Best Features

4 full doors, 8-ft. bed, rear seat room, great power from the small V-8.


Worst Features

If Cheverolet and Ford can get 22 mpg from their little V-8 then why can't Dodge? I barely get 16 on the highway, 12 in town!
