Great Truck If You Can Afford The Gas — Very stylish appearance with 20" chrome wheels. Good build quality very solid. Great truck with plenty of power & room. Reasonable repair cost. Fun to drive with the sun roof open. 4 wheel drive will get you out of most situations. The gas will eat you alive.

Outstanding If You Dont Mind Filling Up The Tank — everything about it is great except the fuel mileage and the rather outdated interior. it can haul and pull anything you want and seats 6 with plenty of room would probably easily seat 7 if it had the seatbelts. the cargo space behind the back seat is awesome too.

Looks great, spacious, stylish, and clean interior.

For a V6, mileage could be better. Need more power.

Truck Built For East Texas — I love my truck, Duke. My wife knows I love my truck. Despite needing more power and better fuel mileage, I enjoy driving my truck. Build quality feels strong, interior is very spacious and has a modern look and feel.

Pros

Rarely beaten in power, plenty of cargo capacity and people get out of your way when you get behind them

Cons

Repairs seem to be adding up now that ive crossed 90k miles once the repairs are made the parts perform solid but most parts seem to have 90k life span before they break

Love Hate Relationship — I absolutely love my truck - as much as my dog and almost as much as at wife but for all the things i love about it the repair costs and games played by chrysler are starting to get old. It's quite likely that when I do finally get another truck it will be another Ram but i'll do a little more research on the next one before jumping into bed with it. Not all chryslers are problematic my wife has an '11 Jeep patriot and that thing is awesome, no problems tons of space and excellent traction control/ 4wd - HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a small suv - 30mpg highway regularily 26 city with mid grade

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.

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.

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.
