Great Big Truck Perfect For Plowing, Landscapers, Towing! — Nice looking silver truck. Interior was very comfortable and all the power options worked great. Gas mileage was low but maintenance was very good with no problems to speak of. Ran very smoothly and it could tow and plow easily. It was a safe and easy to drive truck with very good handling. Very fun truck to drive espicially in the snow.

Pros

Great truck for towing and hauling. Looks and runs great, has plenty of power and in cab storage. Loaded with all the bells and whistles.

Cons

This thing loves the gas station so if your looking for a fuel saver in a truck this is not it.

Love,love, Love This Truck — Love the way this truck looks and sounds. It is very comfortable to drive and has great hauling capabilities. It is an expensive truck to fuel up. The maintenance costs were pretty well comparable for trucks. Overall Ilove this truck.

Pros

Love, love the 4.7L engine and tranie combo.... This truck has a lot of pep. No change in power after 96,000. Maintenence cost very low for me. Great looking design. Gas mileage ave 14 city and 18 freeway. The all disc brakes give the drive great confidence in quick smooth stopping .

Cons

A poor plastic was used in the dash causing cracking and dash cave ins. Unfortunately no recall to compensate owners for replacement dashes.

High Up In The Saddle On A Fast Horse — Price point was good on my pocket book when purchased as second owner in 2003. After 10 years the paint is still beautiful. Low maintence cost , great power and handling. Very roomy with split bench. Behind seat storgage area was just what I needed. Great towing capacity.

very useful car providing the bed and the engine power, most important hardware on this car is either replaced or rebuilt, interior very clean. Just passed inspection.

Cons

the interior radio might wanna be replaced as it doesnot accept CDs in it

Extremely Reliable And Very Useful — perfect utility tool, and family too, it drives really great, engine feels like new no any disturbing noises coming out of the exhaust, just passed inspection so no any electronic malfunctions, and kept its maintenance ( oil change etc..) always on time.

Pros

Its a really reliable working truck. Never a problem with this one. You can fit sheet rock right inside the box, long moldings, lumber you name it, everything fits like a glove.

Cons

Sounds like a truck, my wife hates it. I don't care after all, its a truck.

Great Working Truck! — You will fit all your tools inside and then some. Back seats are not that confortable to ride long hours but I don't use them that often. It drives like a charm but you have to find a big space to park or push a bit the other cars (some people don't like that!).

I Would Buy Another One. — This is a really good truck. Coming from owning Fords, I was leery of a Dodge, but this truck has redeemed the Chrysler brand fore me. It never fails to start, it's very comfortable, and most importantly, the transmission has not blown up in it. I can't comment too much on reliability, as I bought the truck as a fixer, but since it has been fixed up, it has been perfect. You can tell the truck is well built where it counts, the doors shut with a very solid slam, and the truck doesn't rattle or squeak. However, Chrysler's choice of materials, most notably the dash top, was found wanting as the dash has cracked from exposure to sunlight. Fuel mileage on the open road is actually quite good for a pickup truck, typically getting 20-21 with the 4.7L engine.

This Car Is A Great Car To Own — It was great with acceleration and handling. The braking was terrible but it needed new brakes. It had no repairs except the brakes. The appearance was awesome. It was clean with no dents. The gas mileage was amazing on this truck and I never had to fix anything. This was a very fun car to drive and a lot of memories in it.

2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Slt Quad Cab4x4 4.7l — Great styling for a 10 year old truck. Haven't had any problems except for rust and normal maintenance. It has the smaller 4.7L motor as it was the first year and they didn't offer the hemi yet. Next truck will have the hemi.
