Not a Gas Saver

2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


This is the 3rd new truck that I bought, the first Dodge ever. Why a Dodge, well, it was the cheapest! It has power, plenty of it! Even with the upgraded 20 inch wheels and 35 inch tires it can tow almost anything with its Hemi. However, it has three problems, fuel is the biggest, never has it come close to what Dodge says it does, on average it gives about 11 MPG, 13 on the highway if the wind is behind you, 10 in town no matter how you drive. Another problem are the stiff seats, they are very uncomfortable after seating for about 30 minutes, I get off and sit in my brother's Chevy 2500, and immediatly notice the diference. The other problem is the off- center stearing wheel to the driver.

Best Features

Power. That says it all. It is a powerful truck. Not only that, its pearl coats on the paint looks great. Mine is very sexy with its flame metallic paint with pearl clearcoat, on lots of chrome. It's a head turner!

Worst Features

First and foremost, the confort of the seats, or lack there off! Unfortunately my test drive didn't last 60 minutes otherwise I would have not bought it. Second, center the steering wheel to the driver, its annoying haveing to lean one inch to the right. Gas, OK, its expected from the 5.7 Hemi.
