2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


I've noticed that on a windy day you must turn up the radio to block out the outside noise. I'm always checking the doors to see if they are closed tight. It seems like the manufacturer forgot to complete the rubber seal on the doors, although the seals all seem to be attached. I've noticed when the cruise control is on the speed fluxuates sometimes ten to twenty miles an hour on uneven roadways. I've also noticed a slipping or some unexplained shift problem between second and third gear while the transmission upshifts during acceleration.

Best Features

My truck has a lot of power for only a 4.7 V-8. Interior is very nice in the Laramie quad cabs.

Worst Features

I've never owned a vehicle that didn't display the time of day when the radio is on. You must turn off the radio to see the time display. Odd! Multiple CD changers should be in all new Dodge trucks. Not an optional item.
