Pros: Easy to drive
Cons: ac not cold enough
Advice: go for itOwn a 2002 1500 quad cab and love it; very sapcious. The 4.7 Sounds mean and gets the job done. Tough truck easy to drive and feels nice. if your a dodge fan buy one
Pros: The amount of room and comfortable ride.
Cons: Price, but I liked it too much to worry about that.
Advice: Get the model you can afford. I got the base Sport and love it.I wasn't sure if I wanted this vehicle (going from a little Prizm), but once I test drove it, I knew it was for me. I especially love being able to fit my son's baseball gear in the back. It also does not feel like it will tip over when you turn a corner or go around a curve, which most of the SUV's I considered buying would. It is a very safe vehicle.
Pros: Appearance and comfortability.
Cons: The squared edges of the dashboard
Advice: Go for it!This truck doesn't feel like your driving a truck! Easy handling and a VERRRY smooth ride.. I traded in my Ford F-150 for this truck and never thought I could be this blown away by its performance and appearance. If you haven't been able to make up your mind, test drive it, that's all it will take for you to choose this truck. I'm happy with the decision I made to switch from the Ford F-150 to the Dodge 1500. (Watch out Ford, there just might be a new best selling truck in the coming years, and it won't be a Ford.) By the way... go for the 20's (rims)
Pros: the way it handles around corners. so smooth. i have never driven a car that took corners so well. especially if you are getting off the highway. its great!
Cons: the fact that i dont have a bigger engine. but i soon will!
Advice: test drive all the different models. theyre all nice but it depends on what you want for an engine or look.i love this car. my dad has a 2002 i have a 1999 now and i am going to buy a 2003 r/t when they come out. you get so much car for your buck. they look nice, handle awesome and the stock cd player is so sweet considering its stock. people ask me if i put extra stuff into my radio which i didnt.
Pros: multispeed transmission/powerful 4.7L
Cons: a/c not cold enough
Advice: Just drive the differance you will love itI purchased this vehicle to replace my 1996 Ram 1500 4x4 after having multiple transmission problems.I would have to say someone in the engineering department should take a bow. I really enjoy this truck I usually dont get to excited over machines,but I have to let people know thus far its been great. The truck out pulls the old truck hands down.the other truck was a 5.9L and this one is a 4.7L... My hats off to Dodge, GOOD job guys.I would encourage anyone looking for a truck take one for a drive and you will see what you've been missing. PS. The 5.9 automatic transmission ( stay away from this set up, they know they have huge problem) is still the junk transmission 2003 5.7 will have the good one!
Pros: Double sliding side doors
Cons: This is a tough one as I really had to find something. THe Mirror adjustment is on the dash
Advice: Bring your check bookThis is my third Minivan. Number 1 was a 1987 Dodge Mini Ramvan. Number 2 is still in service 1991 Plymouth Voyager 143,800 mi.. I think Dodge has listened to the public. Many items, like the seat belt adjustment, show they are listening.
Cons: Noisy ride
Advice: 6 cyl/leather worth consideringFun car to drive. Half way between spunky and true sports car. I have all options except anti-lock brakes and cassette. CD player jammed twice, dealer replaced and no problems since. I love it! My wife wants one exactly like mine. (I'm trying to talk her into an Eclipse). There is limited sight out back window and access in & out of car is affected by seats being low. Sunroof, stereo and 200 hp are the high points. Also love sound from exhaust.
