    Love Dodge Ram! — Stylish looking truck. Solid styling and very few blind spots. Repairs have been minimal. Normal maintenance and tune ups which have been fair. Truck handles well, gets up and onto the freeway and cruises along nicely. Quiet interior and great for kids etc in the back seat. Dodge has the best under seat storage by far!

    Pros: Great truck for a 2WD.  Good gas mileage and an easy keeper :)

    Cons: Does well everywhere we've taken it - no complaints.

    Awesome Truck!! Definitely Turns Heads And Gets Attention Of Others! — This is my baby but due to the addition of a second child and more car seats, I need to get a better family quality vehicle like a luxury sedan or something! This is a very fun truck to drive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great looking truck! Makes you feel like a man! Head Turner!

    Cons: Poor gas mileage, tough to get car seats in and out back seat due to the height

    The Beast Hidden Below The Suburbia's Daddy Commuter. — This dodge has a governed feel when it comes to race-accelerating, with about a 10 second 0-60. Off-road, with my awesome tires, is great. Longer wheel base compared to other climbers though. Build quality is excellent, requiring vurtually no repairs, and very little maintenance. Fun to drive for sure, second only to if I owned the manual transmission version of this truck....

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This is the best truck next to a brand new Cummins!

    Cons: Fuel economy is about 12.8, improved to 18mpg or so 5 model years newer.

    *please Do Not Buy A Truck If You Cannot Keep It In Your Lane* —

    performance is outstanding... i have the 5.7 liter HEMI and i love leaving people in my dust! the acceleration is amazing for a truck of its size, and braking is outstanding. the handling is ok - exactly what you would expect of a pick-up, however, i cannot say how the 4wd measures up. it seems tricky to maneuver, but it is not. you can get the hang of it in no time. build quality is great! very well built, very strudy, very... american! i have not needed any repairs, however there is a slight wind noise on the driver's side. not quite sure why, i have examined the driver's side and found nothing to indicate a need for repair, but it is easy to live with... had a couple of paint issues, but it goes hand in hand with the load you put in the bed... hopefully they will develop a better paint to withstand the bumps and scrapes expected to occur in a truck bed... appearance is nice... i personally like the look of the newer models better (hopefully will be trading up soon!) because it seems to me the design of this truck was a futile attempt at sleekness, which takes away from the spirit of the truck! trucks are mean, rugged, intimidating - just how i like it! so the newer models make the grade on that aspect... interior is very nice, very spacious, very comfortable. guages and meters are easily read and compatrments are within reach from the drivers seat (and that is coming from a pretty small driver!) cost of ownership is a bit of hit. fuel economy is very low, especially when towing and hauling. the difference in gas mileage should not be so great under different uses of the truck... insurance is a good price, and financing was not too bad. maintenance is up and down, parts are not expensive, but fluids, belts, and tires really are! this car incredibly fun to drive! it demands acknowledgment and respect on the road... it has power (i spanked a bmw x5!) and a large cab so your friends can come along for the ride! not to mention, it also doubles as a fort for my 7 year old son and my 8 & 5 year old little sisters :) they spend hours playing in the bed and climbing through the back window into the cab... everone loves this truck!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: i originally got the truck as, believe it or not, a family car. i did not want a suv, but i wanted a large car that could protect my family in case of an accident. not only does it comfortably sit 6 (we have had 8), but it feels so much safer... and we never have to rent a uhaul :)

    Cons: we have towed everything from jetskis, to boats, to trailers on this truck and it performed wonderfully.

    My Heavy Hauler — man this is my 3rd Dodge ram. had a 1996-1999 and now this one. THis truck does it all for me. pulls boats and jet skis. hauls all the building supplies I can throw into it.

    Great Performing Enigne — great truck to have fun in and a great truck for the off road /sport truck enthusiast and for those who want to mod it to their liking so many options. also not for the person looking to save money on gas.

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

    Pros: the engine is amazing especially when you have it tuned like mine i have roughly 380hp and its a lot of fun

    Cons: gas mileage

    Great Vehicle, If You Have Regular Need To Tote Or Tow Stuff — Great riding truck. Much better MPG than the EPA ratings. I get between 19 and 24MPG highway depending on how much up and down driving there is. Fully loaded towing the Volare' the mileage is more like 15MPG. Only a small bit of trouble going up steep grades fully loaded and towing the Volare'. It regulary averages 17MPG combining highway, city and heavy traffic in the DC area. Had no trouble getting to work, 25 miles away, in the recent snow storms. We use the RAM as our family vehicle and is our vehicle of choice for road trips. There is room for us, our stuff, our big dog (great dane/black lab mix) and plenty of extras.

    Pros: Very comfortable, smooth ride with great handling

    Cons: Fuel consumption
