it is not what it seems
By fishinmagician on


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


after looking at chevy and ford, dodge
was by far the best looking truck.
however, about a month after
purchasing it, problems arose. the
truck has been in the shop at least 10
times for numerous problems. first,
the brake rotors warped, and we had
them changed 3 times. then the wind
noise is terrible at about 35 mph. we
took it to the dealer and they
suggested installing rain guard
things ,which helped a little. you
cannot ride comfortably with the
windows down because the wind pounds
the side of your head. the seats are
like torture devices there is no
comfortable position .the lastest
problem is the transmission, which
sounds like it is about to fall out
whenever gears are changed.

Best Features

pinion power steering which is much tighter than ford, sound, hemi power. thats about it. it was basically an impulse buy.

Worst Features

power sliding rear window, comfortable seats, delete the wind noise and discomfort. get a decent tranny it sounds like every other chrysler. basically, we should have bought a ford, because chrysler needs to improve their quality. they are nice for a few months then everything goes to the wayside.
