2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Ram 1500
4x4 gets you going great, stopping can be an issue on ice and snow.
My Dodge RAM 1500 has been very reliable, I bought it in 2002 with 60k miles. I have driven it on many military backfill deployments. It now has over 180k miles. I have never needs any major repair, I do my own repairs, brakes, coolant, fluid levels and changes-oil, transmission filter and fluid, transfer case and differentials. 4x4 works great, needs a times here in nd/MN. Extended cab has lots of room for passengers and some storage back seat. My only complaint (other than mpg) is RAM rust, very typical on rear wheel fenders, wells, and side panel bottoms. This truck had several features for it is time. Lots of torque and pulling power, 5. 2l engine.
Dodge pickups are well built and can last forever with minimal repairs.
My vehicle is a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 extra cab pickup truck. It has a standard transmission, gets good gas mileage for its size, and had zero issues until it passed 200,000 miles. Since that point, I have had a couple of pretty big issues. Last summer I had to replace the axle and shortly after I had to replace the clutch. Currently it is having O2 sensor issues and the radiator needs flushed with a possible thermostat replacement. But really, for having made it over 200k before issues arose is pretty amazing. I purchased it used in 2009 and it is banged and bruised, I've replaced a million tires it seems but still it keeps on trucking!
Paid for! No monthly payments.
And I really like about my truck the most is that it is paid for. It suits my needs being a truck. I am comfortable with the way it handles. I just wish it got better gas mileage. Not having to make monthly payments, at this stage in my life, is a luxury. For me it is much less expensive to pay for a repair didn't go out and buy a new vehicle. Where the brand new or previously out not having to make monthly payments, at this stage in my life, is a luxury. For me it is much less expensive to pay for a repair didn't go out and buy a new vehicle. Whether is the brand new or previously owned.
Runs smooth and very reliable.
I bought my Dodge due to the low miles, it 79, 000 miles and is a 2001. It has been the most reliable vehicle that I have owned. I have had no issues with it and do regular maintenance as needed to it. I have replaced the fuel pump and power steering pump. The vehicle was well taken care by the previous owner and has no body damage or rust spots. The 4x4 is a life saver for me as we live in and it comes in handy with all the snow we get. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and foresee myself being a loyal Dodge owner when purchasing my next vehicle.
17 year old Dodge RAM with amazing dependability for her age.
It is a reliable truck, but because of the age it has many problems. The a/c leaks through to the floor due to improper insulation, and there is a tear in the rubber seam at the windows where water leaks in. It is a gas guzzler, and takes 60$ to fill up the tank completely from e to f. Very comfortable to drive, and does very well when towing. Good handling, though the alignment is off, and the wheel is a bit loose. Most of the problems are attributed to old age, though, and the truck overall is durable and dependable.
Vehicle gets great gas mileage and has a smooth ride. Has good tires.
Vehicle is an extended cab with a bed liner. It has a v8 motor with 167, 000 actual miles. It can go almost 300 miles before needing more gas. Cloth seat with fold down armrest in the middle. The dash has a crack in it which seems to happen with the Dodge pickups. It has 16 inch tires. The truck is loaded with air conditioning, cassette player/radio, cruise control and power windows and tilt steering wheel.
Very good looking and sounding truck.
Starter going out. Headlights needs replacement. drives very well, the engine is strong. Body in great shape as well as inside. Decent on gas. Clean title. Its white, got two fifteen inch kicker comps inside with a two thousand watt Kenwood amp all hooked up to a double den seven inch touchscreen Kenwood radio and top of the line positive and negative wires ran with two inline fuses on them.
The good and bad of a family owned dodge Ram 1500.
The oversized cab is a plus when traveling with family. The hefty Mopar engine gets it going fast when it needs to. The gas mileage is rather poor, with a hwy. Around 16 mpg. The transmission system is a poor design. It overheats easily. I have had to replace the transmission in the truck once & replace the hoses an additional time.
I love my Dodge RAM 1500.
Problems: runs out of gas fast, dashboard is completely gone, the air conditioner works only when it wants to work. Reliability: it gets us where we need to go, has back seat for me to put my kids, seats are comfortable, never lets us down. I like that it has four doors and back row seating. Cruise control and drives very good.
My Dodge pickup rides smooth like a car.
My Dodge Ram is smooth riding, low maintenance, great gas mileage for a 318 cubic inch engine. The black paint is still shiny like when it was bought. No peeling or fading like other brands. It has a roomy extended cab to ride 3 people in the back. It has a sliding glass rear back window that allows a good flow of air.
