Our Dodge RAM 1500. A truck that drives like a plush large SUV.

Our Dodge 1500 ram pickup is an extended cab which give us loads of space inside, as well as the highly useful bed of our truck. The draw back of this great truck is only one and that would be the consumption of gas but other than that it drives and handles like a large SUV. We chose this truck because not only the spacious cab and bed, it is dependable ( knowledge due to owning one before it, which we regretted selling). It handles our towing demands our hauling demands and looks great and handles great going down town or out on highway or way out in the country. We would recommend every busy consumer out there that needs the space, as well as the ability to haul tow push and pull. And wants a comfortable plush ride while doing so needs to own a Dodge RAM 1500. Its like owning a fancy car with the power and might of a great truck.

Amazing Dodge with almost 235, 000 mi.

I absolutely love our old Dodge! Its a 2000 Dodge RAM 1500 with almost 235, 000! Everyday and every mile added astounds me if it were a diesel it would be barely broken in, but for a gasser it's amazing! That is why I love doge with regular maintenance an some part replacements like ball joints tie rods brakes rotors etc.. They will just keep going and going! I know that truck will start up every day and get me to wear I need to be, and will continue doing so for many more miles.

Durable and dependable Dodge.

I bought my truck used. It had 135, 000 miles (actual). She had a small oil leak. That 5. 9 magnum engine lasted for 6 years under my ownership. The original engine lasted for 14 years with very minimal work. I replaced the engine with a used one and it has lasted 16 years, including original truck and mine. I would rate Dodge as having one of the best built engines on the market today.

This truck is just great. I could go on all day,

My truck is amazing. Nice seats. No problems. Nice performance. Nice cooling system. I do not regret my choice of getting this truck the truck color is white and it is just beautiful and is so easy to keep clean. You will not regret buying a Dodge. . You will love this truck and how family friendly this truck is. You will feel safe and comfortable on everyday trips or even long ones.

Dodge RAM 1500 review. Spacious and comfortable.

I like the power it has, it is spacious and comfortable. I like that we can haul quite a bit in the bed and it pulls really well. I don't like that you can hear the road noise. I don't like that it doesn't have many options and some of the things like cup holders and the cubby under the air conditioner controls are in the way if you have cups in the cup holder.

Just talking about RAM trucks!

The vehicle is very powerful. Has a lot of torque and yet it drinks a lot of gas. Since it is an older vehicle it actually burns a lot of oil. I do love the v-8 motor but would prefer the v6 to save more gas. I have been looking at the new RAM trucks lately. I intend on test driving one to get the overall feel and look of it.

The highs and lows of mid 90's Dodge trucks.

Truck lasted fifteen years of hard work and still ran. The seats were comfortable, but the body rusted out pretty early. It did have issues with the brake lines rotting out, but that was after almost sixteen years of common wear and tear. The truck ran smooth, but had issues in any other weather besides sun and warmth.

- Krystal L

An interesting detail about my truck is that it handles great.

My truck is great on gas and handles well and very seldom breaks down when it doe the truck is very great on gas and handles great and very seldom breaks down and when it does it is not expensive to have it fixed I haven't had any trouble with it at all far from regular maintenance and I have had it for 3 years.

- Melanie R

Runs smooth. Needs tons of work.

When bought the truck's dashboard was cracked. The gauges didn't work. We were told there was nothing wrong with it. Were sent pictures and it seemed it was fine. The pictures were old pictures. We do not drive it as much because it is a regular cab and we have a baby. It needs a lot of work done to it.

- Emma B

Decent and long - lasting.

The main selling point is its reliability. In comparison to our other vehicles, it has had far fewer problems. On the other hand, it makes slightly wider turns, and it is easy for long hair to get stuck in the seat belt. The biggest problem is the ac, which only works in short bursts before fading out.

- Tyler Z

It is worth giving a try.

It eats gas but does well in snow for rear wheel drive, heater is hot, does the job if you maintenance it on a normal basis, had replaced only air filters, oil, spark plugs and wired, oil of course every 2500 miles. Like I said it does like gas, but gets the job done, bed is enough size to haul a lot.

- Chris M

A few negative qualities, but good overall.

Pros: has had the least problems of all the vehicles we've owned; it's been the most reliable and durable. Cons: the ac has never been functional for more than a few months. If you have long hair, it will get caught in the seat belt. Does not have much in the way of legroom.

- Tyler C

Good old comfortable truck still going in 2018. Dodge trucks are reliable !

I love it, except that I need a 3:4 ton truck. That is the problem, it cannot pull my 5th wheel which complicates everything. It has a cab which my 3 dogs comfortably ride, although I wish the back window could be opened. It is comfortable. I feel safe being in a Dodge RAM.

- Julie Z

Rams rule, great truck, great power, great room, good comfort.

My 1500 is the most reliable vehicle I have at this time. Mechanicals it is as sound as you can get and for comfort the driver's seat is great on long trips. Gas wise it is an expected mileage of a truck so you f you want great mileage buy an electric car!

- Loci P

It is just a work truck nothing fancy.

It is a work truck. It is been reliable for most part and comfy with the leather seats. The parts are a bit expensive if something tears up. It is kind of wobbles in the road back in forth with the steering. It is a heavy vehicle j do not like that.

- Kimberly W

It's a truck and can transport a lot of other things that can't be transported with a car.

Now that it's getting older a lot of things are starting to go wrong with it and it's costing a lot to keep it running. I had a 2015 Malibu but someone t boned me on 7/11/18 and I just haven't bought a different car yet.

- Lisa H

It is useful, not fast, uses up a lot of gas.

It is very useful. The mpg is terrible. You can haul loads of things in it, very good when my family wants to go camping. It is not a good family car though, very big and hard to drive.

- Gustavo L

- Jonathan F

It is 4 wheel drive, great for winter months and off road for pulling and hauling

My dodge ram 150 has 4 wheel drive is perfect for hauling or pulling things.during the winter it will get through any ice roads and is a very good for pulling people out of ditches

- john f

Up keep is low. It needs tires and front end work because of the terrible condition New Jersey roads!

My Primetime van is great, runs fine of course it gone into the shop from time to time as usual in all vehicles. Mostly I take it to the shop for 3000 miles oil changes.

- Lawrence U

Dodge Ram 1500 is the beast.

Love my Ram 1500 extended cab, it has plenty of space for all my needs 4 doors makes access easy as pie, dependable never had any issues with it at all.

- Becky V

It has a lot more power than people get it credit for.

I really like my Truck. I am able to to help people move and I am able to bring furniture home. I do not like the color because it was a hand me down.

- Mike C

The most important thing about my car is that it only fits two or three people

My truck is not the best in the world but it has made it through three years of Alaskan winters, The frame needs work, engine, and Transmission

- Jimmy T

It gets done the things I need it to. It gets me from point A to point B. It can move thing that I need to haul.

It's a bit big to drive around city streets. It is difficult for me to park. I am not a fan of the color. It does haul the things I need it to.

- Amy W

That is is very safe and sturdy. It doesn't look very nice, but it has never left me stranded.

Very little mechanical problems with it until the mileage started getting really high, but then we had to replace several things at once.

- Jennifer S

It's also good for off road fun!!

My dodge ram has been a all around dependable great running truck, it's good in the winter months also it is great for hauling things

- Stacey C

She's a beast! She will get you out of the deepest rut in a dirt road but gentle enough to carry a baby

It is a single cab truck. I love the size of it (or height I suppose). However after growing a family it isn't practical anymore

- Elizabeth S
