Advice: Would not suggest this product.The truck is one problem after another it has only 39000 miles uses lots of oil. It had the tierod ends and the sway bar links replaced at 20000 miles chrysler refuised to set the towin saying it was part of a frontend allinment that was not covered under the warranty. well to replace two tie rods and do it right you must set the towin. I have owned several new Chrysler products over the past 40 years THIS IS THE LAST.
Pros: The hemi motor justs makes this truck run great!
Cons: Paying for all the toys.
Advice: You have to test drive this vehicle to believe it. Make sure you compare it with others and I think you will be pleased with this pickupWhat a great pickup!!! Smooth and powerful hemi engine, quiet cab, good brakes, dual exhaust from factory, great ride. If you drive this vehicle you'll be hooked. The options are almost limitless and it all fits together in a very sharp looking and great driving vehicle. Dodge did an outstanding job on this generation of pickups.
Pros: I don't have one anymore
Cons: Taking it to be repaired
Advice: Stay away from this truckI bought a 2005 Dodge Dakota Club Cab SLT 4x4 from CarMax when it had 9k of miles on it. To make a long story short it had and still has multiple problems; tires, vibration, transmission, emmision problems, windows, wheels etc... I have made many trips to get things fixed and it has cost me a lot of out of pocket money. Please do not buy one of these trucks! It was a very poor decision for me and I will never purchase another!
Cons: the upholstery falling apart on drivers seat
Advice: good truck no call backs that year 2005drives very good got the cummins
Pros: The 5.7 Hemi, 4X4, 20 inch tires that were ride friendly. Tow hooks in the front ,and Tow Pacage.
Cons: Have not found it yet.
Advice: BUY IT !!!Not sure what Dodge did to this truck. Just blown away by how well it drives and the comfort is incredible ..This is my fourth Dodge Ram and the best ever ! i got the 5.7 Hemi .I live where we got hills. It is like effortless driving ..!!! Trust me when you punch it, things happen !!!!!
Pros: The new dual exhaust from Flow master..and drivetrain. Very smooth
Cons: Plastic covers on the crome 20' wheels
Advice: Buy it, you'll love it!What a great truck! I have a 2007 1500 quad cab 4X4 Laramie. I am liking it more each and every day. I put on 900 miles in 5 days and can feel the power diffence as it is breaking in. Truck handles like a sports car, pretty fast for a truck. The ride is very comfortable. Any regrets?? Nope! Fit and finish is great. Good job by Dodge. Mileage avg. is 14.5 mix use, Hwy 16.8 so far. This is an honest review and est. MPG I left a 2004 Dodge 2500 4X4 CTD because I did not put too many miles on per year. Fuel is almost 40-50 cents higher and the cummins option is 6000.00 add on. I can buy a ton of fuel for the diffence. I did like my truck other than that.
Pros: the price/truck
Cons: if i had to say something it would be a little noise from the trans.
Advice: check out the hemi and then try the 4.7 see what you prefer.this truck drives so easy. we got the standard trans with the 4.7 engine.did not like the hemi for gas milage reasons and it's sluggish on the take offs,but get it going and watch out but it also eat's the gas.the 4.7 has great power and is much lighter one the gas and it sound nice.i have drove both the 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive both have great ride and are fun to drive.get what you want and enjoy your new truck.
