Not Your Granfathers Ride, And Definitely Not Your Wife's Suv. — Style, power, and sense of manhood is this vehicles' forte. Whether you're cruising, or using it as a work horse, the Ram 1500 will more than meet your expectation. It handles like a car and works like a truck should.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Amazing 390 horse power hemi engine; Can floor most cars on take off. Extremely comfortable ride, and amazing handling. A great feature is the hill assist. As the engine loses power or speed going up hill, the computer takes over and boosts horse power to maintain speed and ascend up hill.

Cons: The only con to the vehicle, as with any Ram is, the fuel economy. Although, for a truck it gets fairly good highway mileage, as for city driving ... Its like a hummer.  I believe its do to the immense weight of the Hemi engine.

After 3 Years, Still Love The Truck —

This is a Sport 4x4 short bed regular cab with the Hemi. I special ordered it with all the electronic goodies. This truck has been the best of all worlds. During the week, it's a commuter. On weekends, it hauls wood, trailers, and whatever else. I do volunteer transporting of pallets of food from a distribution point to a local food bank. This truck is definitely used as a weekend warrior. On the occasions when I've done heavy hauling, I've experienced the coil spring squat that others have mentioned. Even so, the truck still has plenty of power to spare when hauling heavy loads. I tend to be a little heavy with the right foot. This truck is FAST! It is fun to drive. It handles nimbly for a full size truck. Bear in mind this is the regular cab, short bed, 20 inch tire version. Gas mileage can be decent with the MDS. After three years, you can feel when it slips back and forth between modes. With a little practice, you can drive this truck economically (for a full size truck). Vision out of the cab is excellent. Controls are sensibly placed for the most part, once you get used to them. I had a '99 Silverado followed by an '02 Avalanche. After 10 years of using Chevy controls, I was able to adjust to the Ram quickly. The call button for the bluetooth/phone could be closer to the driver. I've owned pick-ups from all three North American manufacturers. The Ram is by far my favorite. There have been some electronic problems. Once, the truck wouldn't start because it wouldn't read the electronic key. Sometimes the electric door locks won't work when you hit the lock button. The CD player sometimes won't read track and artist info on a disc. Except for the one time only not starting issue, these are all annoyances rather than major issues. Would I buy another one? Absolutely!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, interior storage, appearance, ride

Cons: Electronics occasionallyglitchy

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: almost everything!

Cons: ugly long antenna
