The Absolute Worst Vehicle I Have Ever Owned —

First I had a 2004 Ram 1500 Laramie quadcab 4x4 hemi and it was a sweet ride and when we needed a truck to haul our new 34 foot travel trailer decided a 2008 Ram 2500 Megacab 4x4 would be the answer. Thats where things went bad, first this thing rides like a tank and just about knocks your filling out over bumps (why would any manufacturer spec tire pressures of 60f/70r in a truck that is rated to tow less than their own 1/2 tons)to start this 38 trips to the shop in 23 months. 3 windshield wiper motors, 3 blower motors, replaced intermediate steering shaft twice, all the steering components once and a couple twice and the truck still drives like it's on marbles and just wants to wander around, I got used to that but try that with a 34 foot trailer out back. Cruise control works only when it wants to, replaced all the doors and motors on the heater box and then had to replace the entire heater box assy and I won't even know if it works till it hits -35 this coming winter. Everything in the truck rattles or squeaks and the wind noise about makes you want to cut your ears off. The latest we are waiting for a new front wheel bearing and cruise control buttons the god only knows what will happen. The service managaer has admitted this is the worst truck he has ever seen. It is bad enough that Chrysler Canada extended the bumper to bumper from 60,000Km to the 100,000km of the power train but of course they won't replace the truck. I can't even count the number of hours of lost work taking this thing to the shop. And of couse the sales dept would gladly get me out of it for a measly 10 to 15k more for a 2008 quadcab diesel. Gotta love a truck that less than 2 years old is worth way less than half what you paid for it to trade in. This will be the last Dodge I own and I am stuck with this piece of junk for another few years till the loan gets rightside up. I fear whenthe warranty is gone in abt another month this thing will end up setting in the yard broken and I will still be paying through the nose for it and does Dodge care??? Only in your wildest dreams. I get sick to my stomach every time I get in this thing now and it is my daily driver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks awesome

Cons: I cannot think of 1 thing on this truck worth praising

Great Truck, Performs Great While Providing Comfort — This is my husband's truck. First Dodge in the family, I was a bit skeptical, but it's very roomy, very comfortable, and a heavy hauler! Perfect for towing, decent mileage for a diesel (around 19-22mpg) and GORGEOUS blue paint job ;)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, Comfort, Space, and Power

Cons: It isn't a CHEVROLET

Never Worry About Not Being Able To Get It Done! — Performance - awesome! it could move a mountain. it is extremly quick and quite for a diesel. the 6.7L cumming turbo diesel is the BEST engine so far for a truck! So much torque. We love to take it down the beach, and we never have to worry about not making it out. We burn mostly a veg blend, but I am working on making it pure Veg. miilage is awesome, MPG on highway.....

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

Pros: Torque, Diesel fuel...

Cons: Parking it......

Dodge Ram — Great car, used only for a purpose though. Great quality. Performance in this model a tad lacking, but can be fixed. Great Value for a great work horse. Drives well for a car for its size. Highly Recomended. Is that 40 words yet?

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

Pros: Towing

Cons: Looks

I Love My Truck — I love having my truck back. So long crappy Caliber. A little stiff, but once you get used to driving a real truck its great. The suspension is very stiff and pot holes could potentialy becomes enemies as they will throw you into oncoming traffic if your unprepared. Gas milage sucks, but do you expect from a hemi.

Pros: Big, loads of power, great 4x4

Cons: Gas, very stiff

A four door shortbox is a great handling truck package. Quick to turn, easy to navigate parking lots, and rides good. Much better dash design over the 03-05 models. The seats are comfortable. Read More
