2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Ram 2500
Great truck would buy another Cummins 6 speed in a heartbeat.
Tows great, semi-comfortable, very reliable only thing that left me by the side of the road was when my radiator got a hole in it, really quick when you need to get out into traffic, 6 speed, cummins diesel, 4x4, added a pac exhaust and engine brakes for towing, has a gooseneck ball, upgraded the steering to the 2009 style way stronger design, front wheel bearings tend to go out once a year (probably cheap replacement part), I do all my own work which is nice, because Dodge lets you do that.
Dodge is my go to vehicle.
I have had very limited issues. It has been so great, I cannot bring myself to trade for a newer model. Dodge, has always been my go to vehicle, as this is my 3rd Dodge. With it being a older model, it doesn't have heated seats, & the extra features on the radio/cd player, which no longer works anyway. A comfort ride, depends on tire pressure, so always check this before a trip.
2005 Dodge RAM 2500 with Cummins engine 6sd manual transmission.
I have a 2005 Dodge RAM 2500 4WD with the cummins diesel engine. It has the six speed manual transmission. I bought it new and it has 218,000 miles and still running great. It is bare-bones stock. The only upgrade that has been done is I installed lock-outs on the front axle. Other than general maintenance items. Like oil / brake changes it is a maintenance-free truck.
Overview of the RAM 2500 05'.
Dodge makes some of the best trucks on the market. The 5. 9 Cummins is one of the best. It drives great, sounds great, and should easily last 300, 000 miles. Only thing that sucks is the transmission needs to get rebuilt in order to work properly. Overall I would say it is one of the best rams ever built.
The extra storage and split seats are great.
Great dependable truck. I, love the Cummins diesel engine. It tows great! Love all the extra storage and the fold up seats for extra storage in the back seat. Like how the back seat splits too. Very well built truck and stylish too. I have a new Dodge RAM 2500 and prefer the 2005 instead!
We have always been a Dodge family!
Never any problems. maintenance is consistent, performance is great. I can count on my Dodge always. I prefer a big truck for highway driving, it's safer. This truck is comfortable, has just enough features to comfortably travel. Very spacious for 4 adults, ac and heat work great.
Nice family vehicle that works hard when needed.
This truck has a lot of power. It has very good tow capacity. Steering not the best. Very spacious interior. Fits 6 people nicely. We have a car seat in back and fit two more adults nicely. Having the vinyl floors make easy cleaning when have kids who like to make messes.
My favorite part of my truck is the size.
I really like my pickup. It rides really smooth, has a lot of room which is convenient. It is big so I can pull trailers of all sorts of weight. I live on gravel roads it travels really well. I get great mpg. I have a big tank that I can find almost once every two weeks.
it is very reliable and comfortable
it's a great truck, does what i need it to do. drives well and gets pretty good fuel economy for a large truck. it is easily able to handle the camper on the back, take loads to the dump, navigate dirt roads and comfortable for road trips.
Replace the stock ball joints with heavy duty, rebuildable ball joints.
It's diesel. it's the last year of the good engine. It doesn't require the new emissions. It's roomier and more comfortable than new models. I don't like the color. I would prefer a manual transmission than an auto.
