Needs some refinement! by Ken, Langley, BC on 01/10/2008. Trim: 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SXT, Owned 1 year.
6
Pros: Power, ride height, towing/payload, 39 ft turning radius, wide opening rear doors, interior storage, pricing
Cons: Steering is vague even at low city speeds. Cruise control sometimes shuts off if Accel or Deaccel is hit twice. I think there's a software bug in the PCM or ECM where Cruise gets confused if you jab either button to speed up or down constantly. Seat bottoms are a little long could use more side bolstering lumbar support would be REALLY GREAT in the 40/20/40 cloth bench w/out power driver's seat setup. Interior instrument and door material could be a WAY better still too industrial plastic looking in this price range. Engine noise - this SXT Quad 4.7L sounds like a gigantic sewing machine when you stand outside the vehicle and it's LOUD...
Overall review: Choose your trim level carefully if you plan on a lot of trailer towing get the optional Stability package you won't regret it
