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.

Top Notch Truck — My pick up is the nascar edition and is a dream to travel in. There are 2 adults, 2 teenage girls and two dogs and we drove for 2 12 hour days of driving on our holidays and never had a "not enough room issue" I get 17 to 25 miles to a gallon. The power is unreal, you never have to worry about passing or any thing when you drive this truck.

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

Great Truck For Everyone, Won't Be Disappointed! — Liked the space, options, back seat folds completely down, sunroof! Dislikes were mainly fuel consumption and I got mine used so it had a few dings as well as some dog hair and there was some paint in the bed that wouldn't come off!

Pros

lots of power, good MPG for its size (18)

Cons

it's only a 2WD

35

Dodge Ram 1500 Megacab 2wd Slt — Overall I love this truck. MPG isn't great but it's good for the size and it performs well. It can tow up to 12,500 on the trailer and about 5,000 in the bed. The bed cover is nice too for long trips, but it can be a pain to get it off and back on again.

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