Great Truck, But...
By Jene on


2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (5.9L 8cyl 5M)


When this truck runs, it really does a super job of towing a GN horse trailer, loaded down. It's awesome in steep terrain and on dirt roads, in ice, snow and on slick roads. However, at 42,000 miles, the clutch went out and was a pricey repair. Now the transmission made a popping sound and wouldn't engage. I'll have it towed to the dealer tomorrow. These breakdowns are serious and frustrating. And, Dodge Motors has no interest in covering these breakdowns so it's become a costly truck to own.

Best Features

I love the power, the towing capacity, the handling, the comfort and the super mileage, 20 to 24 mph even towing 3 horses in a GN steel trailer. This is actually a fun truck for this great grandmother to drive. YEE-HAH!!!

Worst Features

The 6-speed manual transmission can gear down like a tractor, but it could use refining with better reliability, smoother engaging with less stiffness. Maybe next time, I'll opt for an automatic transmission with a jake brake.
