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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The truck looks great and holds my family of 6 comfortably.

Cons: Abundance of expensive mechanical issues!!

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

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Tough, dependable

Cons: milage needs to be improved

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!

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

Pros: Large truck with plenty o passenger space. Great power, and overall feeling makes you to be the king of the road

Cons: Only bad thing is the fuel economy, this could be improved

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.)

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

Cons: it's only a 2WD

Owners Paradise — Overall it's a great truck. There's plenty of room in it, although the back seat might feel a little cramped for taller people. It handles great and I've never had a problem pulling anything with it. Getting close to 100,000 miles and couldn't be happier. Just make sure you stay on top of the oil changes, air filters, and kepping it clean; It goes a long way!

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

Pros: Great overall truck
Plenty of power
One of those "Glad I bought this one!" kind of truck
Never been stuck
Great pulling power

Cons: Mine had a slight tranny noise

More Room Than You Know What To Do With. — The Dodge Mega Cab is just that MEGA. Room for all. Love it! Power is good but could be better if the torque management system was eliminated. All controls are easy to access seats are very comfortable and even better with the 6 way power option. The optional stereo sys. really provides great sound. These truck do have front ball joint issues which I have had mine already replaced at 31K miles. Fuel mileage is low but you don't buy a truck like the mega cab and worry about fuel mileage. The 1500 is the same as the 2500 except for towing capacity and payload. Only a few hundred pounds difference. The bucket seat option along with the extra large cab provides plenty of storage for almost anything.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This truck has space to spare. The5.7 Hemi delivers all the power most would want.  Handles well for a 6800 pound truck.

Cons: Fuel mileage, front ball joints.

This Truck Is Very Reliable And Very Safe. It Is Big And Sits Up High So You Feel Safe! — This truck runs absolutely great. Had the oil changed on time or early. Has never been wrecked or in a flood. It does have some very minor dings. The windshield has not cracks or dings in it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It has room galore. Easily 6 adults could ride in it. It rides like a car, very smooth. It gets GREAT gas mileage for a truck as it has a 6-speed manual transmission and is a 6-cyl.It is a beautiful truck and looks clean all the time even when it is filthy because of the silver color. It also has step sides so it is very easy to get in and out of.

Cons: It is a 6-cyl. so for a truck it doesn't have tremendous power. It hauls a great load of weight in the bed but I have never had to tow something so I am not sure about towing power.

Buy It, Or Find A Friend That Will Let You Drive It And Try It Out....to Each His Own — If you want a truck with lots of storage space and seating for six then this is your truck. Having the 4-doors and room for six makes it easy to do the weekend camping trip or the earily morning trip for hunting season. Mine was bought used and came with the towing package W/7-pin trailer hookup and trailer break. The first week end I rented a 17 foot trailer packed up the family and headed over to the ocean. Supprisingly I got about 21 MPG heading over there...and thats with the 5.7 HEMI in it. Over all the styling on the interior is great very roomy and is great for a long trip with six in the cab. The Fold out mirriors were helpful as well with the trailer. The only problem i have found with this truck is it takes a while to engage the 4-HI and the 4-LO...and repairs are pricey.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Roomy, Powerful, Ok on gas for a big engine, Looks Great

Cons: Costly repairs
