Total Joy To Drive. — Great truck. Recently hit a tree. The body Crushes really easy, so it is prone for dents. Gas mileage is not great. Driving 130kph, I get about 10mpg, and at 105kph, I get about 14mpg. All around a great truck.

Its A Headache — good power, sucks on gas, fun to take off the road but def wont buy another one. i've had to put 2 wheel bearings, a transfer case, front driveshaft, and intake gasket into the truck. They are also famous for the dashboard cracking

Best Bang For Buck — i love my truck, i got it for around 13,000 and it had 54,000 miles on it when i purchased it. the performance is great for a 01, the 5.9 has the power to pull but it has no hitch. very sad i know. put cold air on it, and the power differance in the higher rpms is amazing.

Bamm — Like everything about it other than the gas mileage. Looks super nice and has the power to do anything. Very clean and mostly very dependable. Plus my 5 yr old thinks its a monster truck and loves to ride in it.

Impressed — This truck isn't half as bad as all the people are saying about it. If you take care of your truck from the get go, half the problems won't happen. Very satisfied with how this truck performs. I just wish I could diagnose the problems easier.

Great power and good looks.

Cons

Bad gas mileage and the drone of the exhaust.

Overall Good Truck, Just Needs Better Gas Milage — The acceleration with this truck is great. It gets up and goes pretty well. The brakes are also good. It still has the factory brakes on it. It is pretty fun to drive, until the drone of the headers gets annoying. The one thing I'll complain on in the interior is the notorious cracked dash. This happens to all late model Dodge's, and it looks ugly. It just ruins the looks of the interior. The gas mileage sucks, but what was you going to expect? 30 mpg? Nooooo, not even close. On a good day, your probably going to get 15 mpg without ripping on it too much. The truck is fun to drive, but once again, the drone of the headers gets annoying after awhile. Overall, good truck even with the gas mileage.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Nice 1/2 Ton With An Equally Nice Powertrain — This puppy would spin the tires at will! Did a wonderful job of hauling my camper and towing anything I needed to tow. I had it from new and drove it for 6 years. Never had a breakdown of any kind.

It was a good truck and now has about 120K miles on it. I would consider another truck just like it if I could find one to fit the budget. Four wheel drive is a must when you live in a rural area. Read More
