Great truck, does awesome in the snow

Cons

Fuel mileage but if I wanted high fuel economy I would have bought a prius

Good Truck And Still Has Room For A Couple Car Seats For The Family — Just bought it so only have positive things to say about the truck so far but does need a little TLC, hopefully here soon I'll put cold air intake, headers, exhaust, and possibly a chip to somewhat improve the fuel mileage

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

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.

Cons

Easily dents.

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.

Best Truck Dodge Has Ever Built — ive had great fuel eco, ive gotten right aroun 25-27, but ive also have it piped for perfomance, chiped, turbod, nitrous. on my 318. 0-60, 4.5 with spray. ive kept the body beat like when i got it, and in two months i put 5000km on it. itll go anywhere a 4x4 will.

Cons

Sterring

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.

Pros

Great power and good looks.

Cons

Bad gas mileage and the drone of the exhaust.

305

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.

Buy One — I love DODGE, I think they make the best cars and trucks I have had three Rams and all were excellent My 01 Ram has got to be the nicest of the three its got power everything heated mirrors, four wheel drive + a 9 inch(6 in sus, 3 in body) lift (not Factory) It has the 5.2L 318 V8. Has the fold back doors for the back seat which in the newer Rams rhet dont do any more shes got pretty good acceleration id say the 0-60 is about 7.5 seconds she handles pretty well ive only put about 2k miles on it since i bought it back in december both interior and exterior have a really nice sporty look to them the front end has a nice aggressive look to it. MPG if im lucky 10 MPG but keep in mind its not all factory any more. I havent had to put any work into it yet. All in all Dodge makes one hell of a truck
