2003 Dodge RAM 1500: big blue.

I bought this truck as my first vehicle and I got it used. The biggest problems I have had to do with faulty wiring, belts and stalling. The faulty wiring had to do with my speedometer, when I first got it the only thing that wasn't responding on the dash was the speedometer. We tried fuses and such but that didn't work so we had to get a new dash display, but keep in mind that this is a 2003 truck in 2018. Next, my belt broke after going down the highway, but I do not think the had ever been replaced prior. Lastly, for some reason, for an entire month or so after I bought it, the engine would stall going up any incline.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500, v6, manual transmission.

I bought this truck new in 2003 and had an a/c problem shortly after. There was a recall on the a/c wiring harness. Other than that it has been a dependable v6, manual transmission, great gas mileage, comfortable truck. The brakes have been fine for over 120, 000 miles. I loved the graphite paint Dodge used back then, that was another reason I bought it. The back end is light, so you do not gas it from a dead stop on a wet road or you will spin the tires going nowhere. The cab is huge, plenty of room. And I recommend the rubber floors, they've held up great.

Ultimate road trip vehicle.

Ram 1500 conversion van is spacious, comfortable, and easy to handle. Leather interior is easy to clean and maintain. The two separate radio/cd players allow for kids to listen to separate music than the driver. TV and remote great features when traveling long distances with kids. Rear seat let’s electrically folds out to bed with ease. Turn ratio is nice for a vehicle it is size. Not great on gas, but decent mileage per gallon for a vehicle that size.
