Pros: LOOKS LIKE A REAL MAN'S TRUCK, AND 4 DOORS FOR FAMILY
Cons: IF THERE'S ANYTHING? GAS MILEAGE, BUT WHAT DO U EXPECT!!!
Advice: BUY ONE NOW!!!MY FIRST 'NEW' VEHICLE/TRUCK...I PLAN ON KEEPING IT UNTIL IT DIES...DROVE THE COMPETITIION, THEY, CHEVY/GMC ARE GOOD BUT I FELL IN LOVE W/ THE 2002 DODGE RAM QUAD CAB 4X4 SPORT (5.9L V8). IT'S A EYE CATCHER AND GETS A LOT OF QUESTIONS/ATTENTION FROM OTHER TRUCK LOVERS WHILE I'M OUT ON THE ROAD. THE 7YR/100,000 WARRANTY IS GREAT...JUST CAN'T WAIT TILL ITS OVER THEN IT'S TIME TO UPGRADE W/ ACCESSIORIES.....MORE POWER!!!! DRIVES GREAT AND HAS PLENTY OF POWER....WATCH OUT CHEVY AND FORD....DODGE IS THE NEW MAYOR IN TRUCKVILLE!!....THEN THE WORLD!!!!! (EVIL LAUGH) HAHAHA
Pros: Cummins Motor
Cons: Service and Suspension
Advice: Wait till the 2003 models come out!This Vehicle Drifts 6'-8' from side to side. Dodge is aware of the front and rear suspension problems that have plagued the Ram trucks for years. I replaced a clutch, preasure plate, etc.. within the first 60 days of use.
Pros: Great 13' 4 wheel Disc Brakes
Cons: I do miss the Onstar on the GMC
Advice: Go for it!Had a Gmc. Test drove one just for the heck of it. Bought it,took it home, Love it. The Brakes and Steering are BEST I've used. Solid as a rock. (sorry chevy)Quiet , comfortable cab. Well designed back seat/storage area.20' wheels are unbelievable.
Pros: Torque ! and plenty of it
Cons: Thirsty but oh well I knew that going in.
Advice: Fits in the garage do i need to say more???Great all around SUV.
Advice: get one of each colorLove at first sight....(drive)
Advice: Get oneBought one the same day. The 4.7 Magnum V8 is plenty in the Regular Cab.
Pros: Electronic Shift On the Fly
Cons: Difficult to wash the windshield if you are height challenged. Vehicle is taller than most pick-ups in its class.
Advice: Take a test drive and order one to your needs.I received my ordered 2002 just before Christmas and what a dream come true this vehicle is! The 1500 SLT Plus rides and handles like a car. I ordered the towing package, chrome step rails, solid tunnel cover, chrome exhaust tip, wind deflectors for the windows and hood along with mud flaps. This vehicle looks just as sharp as it handles. My FIRST PICKUP and I am not sorry in the least. One minor feature I wish was available and that is the ability to control the direction of the heat for both driver and passenger. At the moment, you can control only the heat, but not the direction of the flow.
