Reliable With Plenty Of Issues

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

The truck is really comfortable on the inside. It's got plenty of room and is easy to drive. It's got plenty of power and is pretty efficient on gas given its size and power. The dash completely cracked and broke apart and that's apparently a common concern with this year model. The air vents don't blow so even when the air conditioning DID work you couldn't feel it. The suspension squeaks TERRIBLY like it needs to be lubed, but it's fine. The transmission makes a loud whining sound so you think it's broken, but apparently that's 'just the way it sounds'. Overall it's been a good truck, but it definitely has its share of issues.

Driving a 2003 Dodge Ram in 2019

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

The 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 with 5.7 hemi engine runs pretty well and powerfully for its age. I love its power, safety, and room in the bed. However, the AC has ceased working and some of the dash/computer controls didn't work properly for a while. Of course, there isn't too much room in the back seat for a car seat like we have, but we make it work. This truck sure looks sharp though! And we use it to haul professional pressure washing equipment every day. Gas costs a lot of money, so we can't wait to get a more efficient vehicle for travel and everyday.

we drive a four door truck and I love that.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

It's a hard working truck. It is great for hauling whatever we have needed it for. I'm short so it's nice to drive something that sits higher than a regular car it's easier for me to see around while driving. This may sound dumb but I also feel safer in it than I do a car I feel it could take more of a beating than a car. It fits my family well also it has enough room for all of us I like that, because it's WAY better than a minivan it makes me feel less like a soccer mom

My old Dodge Ram1500

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

My 2003 Dodge Ram has been very dependable over the years. I just hit 150,000 miles on the odometer and although it's like me and starting to show some scars with age, it never fails to fire right up and get me to the first job every morning. After working on the Dodge for so many years, I felt lost when I was working on a Ford recently. When, I finally retire this one, I'll get another Dodge Ram. I plan on hitting 200,000 miles first.

Dodge ram 1500 4 wheel drive.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Have had to do a lot of maintenance on it at 150000 miles did plugs coils and intake gasket still a nice truck looks newer than is holds road nice very roomy nice features can tow a lot more than its competitors of the same age and spec like the built in standard storage under its rear seat like the visibility and has fewest blind spots than my Chevy I had before it.

I love how big the bed of the truck is awesome because you can put so much in there.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

I love how big the bed of the truck is! We've had problems with the transmission but once we got it fixed under warranty and haven't had any problems since then. I love how big it is and how tall!! I love the speed and sound of the truck. I also love how fast it can go within a few seconds. It is one of the best vehicles I have owned!!

- Ashley A

Gotta love the power in that v8.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

I have a v8 engine which makes it nice when I need some Getty up and go. The seats are very comfortable and the middle console is a good arm rest while driving. I did struggle to change the light bulbs myself I could not get the housing off and had to reach up through the wheel well. Overall very satisfied with my vehicle.

I love my dodge ram-1500.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

I love my truck. The motor performance is exemplary with hemi technology. Have had electrical problems with the dashboard over and over. But it always starts. Has a killer sound system and the 4wd has never let us down. I love my truck. I would highly recommend it to anyone and would gladly buy another one.

- Lisa C

It runs the four wheel drive working!

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Everything is wrong. !! Rusty fluid leaking gas tank straps on to hold gas tank.. lights go out. Bad wires. No power steering. It has awesome get up n go..bad gas mileage. Windows fall off track. No muffler. It's just a rusty leaking machine!! The radio only works when it wants to.

- Mitch H

Workhorse truck and excellent daily driver.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Has a rust issues on rear quarters and cab corners, otherwise runs and drives perfect. No major issues other than a slow responding oxygen sensor on the driver side causing a check engine light. One more issue is the fuel mileage, I get 13 MPG on the freeway which is less than ideal.

- Chase K

It's a great work truck..

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Has a cylinder 4 misfire, dent on side of truck and front grill is missing, it's gray and has a topper as well it's a great work truck for people in construction or roofing, has new tired and drives good, it's a quad cab and has 6 spots, not a bad truck and looks good

My dodge truck does it ALL.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

Shocks, and brakes need to be replaced. Very reliable and sturdy to handle all my hauling needs. Features are double cab with lots of room for comfort The dodge truck has strength to haul a 1 ton hay for my livestock. It can tow a trailer without giving out.

- Sheri R

The heated seats are the best part of the car especially in the winter time.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

It drives smoothly. The brakes make a screech when you barely touch them though. The air conditioning is amazing just takes a bit to work. Heated seats are lovely. Very roomy inside. The trunk has lots of room. You can get Sirius radio as well as the original

- Cherry R

Loud speakers. Great system.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 ST

To big to high up and not enough room a better one. It's too loud. Need a new one my mom lets me take it back and forth to work. It's really hard to get car seats in and out. Oil pressure keeps dropping. Air bag light is always flashing. Looking to sale.
