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


Review

I have only had this truck a couple of
months but I love it. The 4.7 engine
is ok. I love the ride hight and the
looks of the truck. I drove the Ford
and Chevy also but the Dodge is better
looking and had more interior room.
Also the best value.


Best Features

I love the four doors,exterior design is great, the drink holder can hold the biggest of drinks.


Worst Features

I think there should be some back lighting on the cruise control, also some sort of light on the cup holder (hard to see where to put the coffee early in the morning)

with my Ram. The ride, room, and
styling blew me away.

Review

I thought the highway gas mileage at 11
mpg was the worst part of this 4x4
truck until the rear tire broke off the
axle while trying to drive over a 6"
curb. Then Dodge refused to warranty
the vehicle and charge me $3400 to
repair the axle. Needless to say, I
will never buy a Chrysler product
again. My 2002 FORD F350 is a great
vehicle.


Best Features

The inside features are very well laid out. The body style is attractive. Too bad the vehicle is poorly built and Dodge does not support it's cutomers!


Worst Features

Dodge needs to support it's customers and build a truck a better truck.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I just bought mine last week, used with
10,000 miles on it. I promptly picked
it up and headed out on a road trip to
Columbus, OH from Watertown, NY. If
you havent driven a truck lately, go
test drive this thing! The ride was
spectacular! I was worried the seats
might be too stiff, but after driving
for over 7 hours, my fears had no
merit. Great cornering, good
suspension (its a bit bouncy over some
rough highway) and WOW! What an
engine! Mine came with the 5.7 Hemi,
and its worth every penny as an extra.
The exhaust is enough to get your heart
pumping! Only negative that I have to
say is the transmission. It likes to
shift alot.


Best Features

Hemi...cant say enough. Body style is great (grill has me a bit worried, all plastic). Excellent ride.


Worst Features

Smooth the tranny out, it shifts alot. Radio and vent controls a bit of a reach and can be distracting (I'm 6'3, and its still a bit of a reach)

Review

What is going on with the ghetto cruiser
electra 225 bouncy suspension? I feel
like the truck goes out of control a
bit at highway speeds when you hit a
bump and it has a mushy non truck like
ride. It needs to be tighter more truck
like. I feel I have to watch out and
keep two hands on the wheel all the
time. Yes, I should have test drove it
longer, but it seemed so comfortable the
4-5 miles I test drove it. Oh yeah, can
you stand not seeing the end of the
hood? The wipers are in the way.


Best Features

Nice engine exhaust sound, great looks, roomy interior, great power,comfortable interior, nice layout. 4 doors the best power windows and seats.


Worst Features

Tighten up the suspension, get a bigger fuel tank and get the wipers out of the way. Perhaps a 45 degree angle on the arms, feels like you are driving blind to the front.
