2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Ram 1500
2008 1500 Dodge quad cab hemi.
Problems: power steering went out. At purchase bought platinum coverage, that covered repairs and I had a rental. Performance great, I push the gas and it goes. It is a hemi, I pull a 23 ft travel trailer anywhere I need to go. Under the hood it has four radiators for cooling everything. Comfort: it carries six adults and I use the pickup to help people move and it helps me go to the dump once a month. I feel safe being height off ground and having more steel all around me. Features: power locks and power windows. Hauling bottom for lower gears. I have owned one Ford 73 six cyd., three Dodges.
The lifted body of the truck is awesome for backcountry camping!
The vehicle handles great, comfortable on the road. The only issues I have had at the main ones, needing new brakes, a couple of belts, new tires. I did have a problem with the thermostat inside the truck not heating anything up but once it was replaces everything was fine again. The heated seats and DVD player are great perks especially on long road trips. All around I love the vehicle, it has held up great through all the wear and tear I have put it through, from out of state road trips to off-road camping. The truck is great and I would recommend it to anyone!
Very reliable and dependable truck, it was built to last.
I owned a Dodge Ram 1500 for 6 years and only have had minimal problems with the truck, I had the water pump replaced 2 years ago. The truck has a lot of room even though it is a standard cab. It is equipped with power windows and door locks, am/fm stereo with cd. It has a v6 engine but has excellent power and towing capabilities. The ride and handling is very smooth. I am a do it yourself type of person and can perform most maintenance and repairs, all mechanical components are easily accessible. I love the Dodge truck.
My vehicle is a powerful, comfortable roomy pickup with looks to match.
The 2008 RAM is a very comfortable truck, has a huge cab, I am 6 foot 4 inches and feel like I have tons of room to spare. The 4. 7 liter motor is plenty powerful, giving me all the pep I need and all the pull I need. This truck is very reliable, it starts up everyday nothing had broke and it has over 100k miles on it. The back seat has more room than most cars. The one bad thing I can say is it is horrible on gas, I haven't really calculated the gas mileage, but I can tell you it is horrible.
2008 RAM 1500 sport model. This model has custom RAM head brake light covers.
My RAM 1500 is a great truck. It gets around 15 m. P. G. I easily tow an average size car with no issues. My truck is equipped with 4 wheel drive which works well when it's needed. I have the short bed option which I believe is 6 ft. When needed to haul lumber a trailer is helpful and easy to pull. The RAM design is attractive and durable. I have very little rust anywhere on the truck. I have a crew cab which allows a more comfortable ride for passengers. Overall I am very happy with my truck.
This truck is tough enough to get the job done. A good work truck that the family can ride in.
My RAM is a very good truck indeed. I have had it for almost 10 years and it has only needed routine maintenance on it. The 8 barrel engine is very powerful even though some might think that the flex fuel capability would weaken it. The seats are good for a pickup and the ride is smooth. The only thing is that it was a minimal package so it does not have all of the feature of some others from 2008. Tires are a good price and there is plenty of room with the mega-cab.
Fantastic truck for a mom of boys.
Overall fantastic truck. Engine is solid and reliable. The only quirk we have found is once car seats are placed in the back seat, it impacts legroom for the front passengers. however, no car seats, plenty of room. Interior storage is also a perk. Not as much as some other pickups, but definitely a huge upgrade from my last vehicle!!
It comes with a 2 inch lift and is really fast.
The problems I have most are the bushings and the control arms go out quickly and a truck like this. But what I love the most is that it is very reliable and is fast and very spacious and comfortable. The interior is okay but could use some minor adjustments like a darker color or automatic seats and seat warmers.
Best truck ever awarded by me.
Best truck ever. Pulls boat with no problems and has never left me stranded before. Trident v8 hemi has all the power and torque I need. Has great gas mileage and is easy to service. Ram trucks hold their value which helps me when I am ready to trade in. Or should I say trade up to a newer model.
I love the 5.7 liter engine
165000 miles. Have had mechanical issues. Body is rusting significantly. Has a 5.7 liter hemi engine. I do really like that. I would get another one. But a much more recent model year. Even if it was in excellent condition. Do not specific brand of truck I like better. It's as a quad cab.
