2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Ram 1500
This Dodge RAM van has been a good investment serving it is purpose well.
This Dodge RAM van has been a great vehicle, it is very dependable and reliable requiring the usual maintenance with no major breakdowns. It is great for travel with lots of room for hauling things and comfortable for two passengers. It is easy to handle and does well in traffic. It has good pick up for ease in getting into traffic. It also handles well with heavy cargo. I will definitely purchase another Dodge RAM cargo van in the future even though this vehicle is now sixteen years old it is still in very good condition and I have no plans for selling or trading it in for a newer model anytime soon but when I do I will definitely purchase another Dodge RAM van again! This is the fourth one that I have owned. The only problem that I have encountered with this vehicle is the paint job as it has had a tendency to flake, but I guess this is to be expected whenever a vehicle is not kept inside a garage when not in use and in a hot sunny environment. The cloth seats have not worn well either. In the other vans that I have owned I used seat covers so I didn't encounter this issue with the cloth seats. It also has a great sound system.
It is a little difficulty to find replacement parts.
I like the 4 door extended cab feature it is big enough for my big family. It is 4 wheel drive which is perfect for my family. We are a big hunting family and the 4 wheel drive and long bed are great for getting in tight places and hauling the fresh game home. The year of the vehicle does make it very hard to find replacement parts at times but it is a very durable vehicle. Dodge has been a very reliable vehicle for me. The powerful engine give it a nice pick up and go. I like the simplicity of not having a lot of crazy new tech in my vehicle. It has power windows and locks and that is the most tech I want in a vehicle. The more tech in a vehicle the more possibilities of having more issues that I can not fix myself.
My van has lots of room, very safe and a lot of fun to drive.
I have a 2002 Dodge van high-top. It is custom with TV, limo lighting, very nice captain chairs with a bench seat in rear. This bench seat folds down to a full size bed. It is a very comfortable van. Very long and tall which makes me feel very safe on trips. I raised my son and several of his buddies in this van. Each seat has a large window, custom lighting, tilts back for relaxing on long trips and they swivel for ease. All captain seats have arm/headrests. There is extra storage above each row of seating. There is polished wood accents, each window has folding blinds. The front main captain seats.
The truck is black it's got silver trim and has a great working motor it.
Really great car I love it does what I need it to gets me to where I need to go no problems at all get one try yourself they are the best trucks that you will find on the market I like them very much so try them out I did and have not went back the cars that they make are really great at price and they can get the job done at a very cheap price I think that's why I bought the truck.
Love the size. The extra room from having a full backseat.
I love the size of my truck. Sometime parking can be hard. But I am handicapped so if I get one of those spaces it good for me walking and parking. I love everything except the mpg. I feel very safe in my truck. It is height so I can see everything. I live having the back seat full size so I can carry things inside and it is easy for the dogs to get in the backseat.
The best part of you getting the truck is that you can lift the truck.
All in all it is a very good truck. I never had any problems with the truck and it can haul just about anything you can fit in the bed of the truck so with that being said if you asked me if you should buy the truck I will tell you to go for it because in the end you are going to make out with a good truck.
it is very reliable for it's age
I love being able to step up into and down out of a vehicle. this has been a very reliable vehicle. it is 16 years old and still runs beautifully. it doesn't get very good mileage but I don't drive many miles each year so that is not a problem. due to severe rust I will have to replace it next year.
2002 Dodge Ram 1500 still going strong.
Given the age and mileage (over 200, 000), the truck is performing very well. The mileage per gallon of gas is not the greatest, but we didn't buy the vehicle for that reason. We needed something that we could use for hauling supplies for the house and garden, and the truck has done what we wanted.
I find my Dodge Ram to be very dependable.
I have had my truck since 2002. I have replaced the ball joints and had to replace the radiator 3 yrs. ago. Also brake Calipers were replaced 5 yrs. ago. Ac works great needs a recharge every couple yrs. and had to replace fan motor 2 yrs. ago. It is so comfortable love taking it on vacation.
Completely reliable in all situations that me and my family has ever been. Also not to mention all type of weather conditions. Helping people move, tailgating, camping. Trail rides, parades. Also star watching on beautiful nights with the family. Taking long trips with friends and family.
