Pros: the cummings motor
Cons: the price
Advice: shop around, alot....I have test drove around six of the 2500hd rams. I have ordered one from Bonneville dodge in Manchester NH. In around six weeks I'll finally have my own. The test drive went great. That, combined with the praise of a neighbor and my older brother, has made me a former f250hd owner. They love theirs, and I will surely enjoy mine as well. $37k seems a little pricey, but I know the quality will be worth this purchase. I'm trading in a 97f250hd, and a 96 buick regal. I hope to get the work power of the ford (if not more) and some of the buick's milage.
Pros: Power rear hatch
Cons: Gas cap can be tampered with, no locking device
Advice: Get the eX, it is a dealHandles good and has plenty of power. Roomy inside with smooth and quiet ride.
Pros: The horse power from the little 4.7L V-8
Cons: The long nose takes time to gauge distance on when parking
Advice: Dodge is still assuming the role of underdog! Deal and buyPowerful, roomy, and good looking? It's amazing, I love this truck. Coming from a man who would own nothing but a Ford, this Dodge really has changed my perspective. If you're wavering, buy this truck. It's powerful, will get up and leave the Fords and especially the Chevys in the dust.
Advice: Great car for the money.This is my third Neon. Handling and brakes are still excellent. Suspension has improved - is much less punishing. 150hp engine is quick and economical. Wind noise has decreased, but road and engine noise remain.
Pros: The redesigned look and the drivers seat
Cons: Gas mileage
Advice: You have to be a Truck lover to want this truck.The engine was very peppy and with the multi transmission you hardly ever feel the shifts. This truck will get up and go. And, as usual the large front seats provide a comfortable ride.
Pros: The exterior appearance and large backseat
Cons: Ride gets a little bumpy over bad roads
Advice: Don't buy this if you really want a minivan, it's a TRUCK!!!I've owned my Ram 1500 Quad Cab with the 4.7 liter engine for a month now and I haven't found anything to complain about yet. It's a well built truck with plenty of power and comfort. In fact, it's backseat is bigger than most full size sedans. In short, it's the best truck I've ever driven.
Pros: Wide Interior room & Tall Visibility, Nice Truck, Good 20' Tires
Cons: 5.9L V8, 245HP is not enought Horse Power for this 6,000 pounds heavy truck size. We need the new 5.7L, V8, 345HP.
Advice: Wait for the 2003 Ram model or install the SuperCharge Kit too boost this monster truck from 245HP to a 400HP.This is a very nice design truck. The truck can do anything and go anywhere. The appearance is the best looking truck compare to the Chevy and Ford. We like everything in this new Ram except the Ram is the weakiest power of the competition. I am very sastified when the Box empty but not when I cary 6 men and haul my 5,000 pounds board, and our two motor cycle and our camping equipment full in the trunk. We can not climb at the Rocky Mountain. If Dodge do not install the new HEMI magnum V8, 5.7L, 345HP into this 2003 Ram 1500, I will trade my 2002 Ram to another brand that have more Horspower.
