Great Vehicle! — This truck has plenty of power and plenty of room. I have towed pretty big boats with it and never had a problem. The 4x4 is a must have for snow and mud. I like the power sliding back glass. The 6 foot bed has plenty of room to put things in it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

Good truck this is my third Dodge Ram 1500, style looks good and plenty of room plus 4 wheel drive, has 105K with no engine problems or trans problems.

Cons

Problems that have occurred were heater would not blow heat in floor, in shop twice before repairs done right, cruise control has gone out 3 times and computer replaced, this last time only lasted 2 months and it's going back to shop again, problem is that truck accelerates when cruise set and keeps accelerating.

Overall A Very Good Truck — I like the Dodge Ram 1500 overall the only problems I have had is with the heater and the cruise, after the last repair on the heater it has been working good for the last year, the cruise control problem is the worst problem to date, you would think that it could be repaired after 3 new computer modules had been replaced, guess I'll find out this week when it goes back in the shop for repairs. I did get the truck back in the shop again and they replaced the computer again 4th time and also this time they replaced the brake switch, I don't know if that was what was causing the problem or not but so far working fine, it's been a couple of months now and I guess time will tell at least it has another year warranty on the computer. updated 4-24-14

I Love It Wont Do With Out It — I love the looks, the fell when I drive it, my kids hate that there is no leg room in the back. When you lock it in, it will go. I have pulled chevs out of places with it. never a ford or another dodge.

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

Great Truck — This a great truck and I love to drive it. I would highly recommend this year and model to anyone interested in a great looking and reliable 4 wheel drive pick up. Only down fall is the stinking gas mileage, but there is always a trade off isn't there.

Amazing — This truck is great. I loved it from the start. Has a great navigation system, heated seats, and very roomy front. It pulls like it has nothing behind it. Many people say its too big. But if you are looking for a large vehicle. This is the one for you.

Awesome Truck — Truck is really good shape even though it is almost 7 years old.It is very powerful has about 400 horsepower,had to replace brakes which is normal,also had to rebuild rear end because rear axle seized up.gats around 18mpg on average which isnt too bad for driving around the city with that bug of a truck.Very fun to drive spinning around and gets up to speed pretty fast with no speed limiter or rev limiter.

I Love It. — has 68,000 miles, had brakes done at 64,000 miles. A/C door broke t 44,000 miles. Just started to blue smoke out tail pipe on startup. Yes it is a pleasure to drive. No other problems or complaints. I use it for all needs now that I retired. I owned a 2004 Ram 1500 Laramie, Sport, with a Hemi.. Drove it 80,00 miles Zero problems.

This Truck Is A Lemon!!! — I have had nothing but problems with this vehicle since the day I made the purchase. I go through tires every 6 months. The truck always pulls to the right and shakes violently when traveling at 50 mph or more. No matter how many weights are put on the left the truck pulls to the right, I am up to 16 now. I can hear the wind thru the completely sealed windows when driving. Worst of all, I just went over 100.000 miles, my warranty expired and I started hearing a ticking in my engine. Turns out the #7 cylinder is scored badly and I need to have the engine rebuilt... $5800.00!! I was told by several of the mechanics who looked at the truck that this is a common problem with this year truck and engine. You would think a recall would be issued.

Guts Glory Ram — This P/u has been a family favorite and looks as good as it runs If the hauling of people and gear is your need then I think its a hit, If Dodge had given it a better High gear things would be cheaper
