  Best vehicle I've ever owned.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Powertrain performance
Hemi is strong engine but not as much torque as some at low RPM. Still plenty though. Smooth and likes to rev. Great sound stock. Hemi tick doesn't bother me like it does some.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Fuel economy
Not much I don't like about this truck, but MPG with a Hemi combined with heavy loads means 12-13 mpg consistently. Not sure newer trucks would do any better with my 1000 lb load in the back. Highway mileage is only 16-17 at best.

Other Reasons to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Handling, Reliability & durability, Materials & workmanship, Controls and instruments

I have had this truck many years and worked hard with heavy loads and rough terrain. Truck has been flawless. It has taken more abuse than almost any other truck and never has failed.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Powertrain performance
No need to put your foot down. This truck has so much power its like driving a rocket compared to my last truck. I really love this Hemi V8. So far I've had very good luck with this truck. I've put almost 20k miles on it.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Reliability & durability
I had my truck for only 11 months. The motor was solid but the electronics were garbage as far as I'm concerned.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Reliability & durability
Now my family builds dodge so it hurts me to say this truck was a big disappointment. I had my truck for only 11 months. This truck was put in the shop so many time for the same things I was reluctant to even consider another Chrysler product. My ignition switch constantly stopped working in the cold months. My transmission had repair work twice (something about a pump) before being fully replaced with a brand new one. My doors made horrid squeaking while being opened or closed. The motor on the other hand was solid but the electronics were garbage as far as I'm concerned.

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Exterior styling
I mean ... come on... the sexiest truck body on the road ...

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Fuel economy
That hemi drinks fuel... we live at 55-60 while towing and 10mpg is all we hope for... we get that on the flats with no headwind. If you get a hill with a headwind you are looking at 4mpg! Buyer beware! fuel is approaching 5 bucks!

Best Reason to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Front seat room
Comfortable , lots of room

Best Reason Not to Buy the Dodge Ram 1500: Materials & workmanship
Lots of wind noise, rattle in dash annoying, por fiot on most plasiques. Could not believe a Hemi motor that brags about all its power would down shift so much on the slightest grade . Very disapointed.
