Pros

Comfortable and easy to see out of.

Cons

Suspension.

45

My Opinions. — Good overall truck. Gets about 21 mpg highway with the little V8. The braking and handling are decent, just as any normal pickup. The build is probably a 8 out of 10. The coil spring suspension is nice for comfort, but horrible for towing or pulling due to "squat". The cost is good depending on what incentives are out, and how much is willing to be spent. The fun factor of it is about a 7. The truck does not have a whole hell of a lot of power, but that's the beauty of the gas mileage. This truck is not a workhorse. It is mainly for comfort.

Really Neat Truck! — Gosh, it's sooo fast! Brakes are good and handling is surprisingly excellent! Have it for 2 years now... no problems so far. Bold and aggressive appearance, very luxury interior. Stunning good gas mileage, I was really surprised. Had some mods done by now and that's what makes the truck even better! It's just so much fun, I'm really addicted to my R/T :)

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

Pros

Great looking truck with ample power, bought to replace my aging 1998 Ram 1500

Cons

I would question Dodge's reliability; had a new cylinder head and full rebuilds of front and rear drive-train (under warranty fortunately), always seems to be some repair on the horizon.

Ram 1500 — I have liked the look of the Rams and after checking out Ford and Chevy (was previously a Chevy guy) went for my 09 1500 4WD. Just love the power (but not gas mileage) and looks of the truck but Ram have a way to go on reliability, seems I am always waiting for the next thing to go wrong!

I Love This Truck For It's Spacious Interior And Performance. — I bought this truck as a replacement for our previous minivan with a double duty as a boat hauler. The truck is awesome to drive and in the Laramie trim has all of the modern gadgets making it favorite with my wife.

Very Very Good — This is a great truck, I have had about 8 ford trucks and about 4 chevys all were new. For the last few years I have to say Dodge has really come a long way inside and out. I have a 2005 3500 and its just simply a GREAT TRUCK . 2009 Dodge straight cab great truck.

Outstanding — Best fullsize truck out there...hands down. I average 20-22 mpg while cruising at highway speed. This is the quietest most comfortable truck out there. I get compliments about it all the time. I wish it would sit slightly lower though.
