Review 1 of 26

Price Paid:  $47000.00 from Wegner

Year / Model Reviewed:
2011 2500 HD - Cummins Turbo D.

Strengths:
Excelent running truck...even in the cold winters. Starts up in sub-zero temps after sitting for at least 9 hours, without being plugged in, with no problem. Laramie package is comfortable, nice amenities.

Weaknesses:
Exhaust regenerate needed 1x week if in town driving only...not getting over 40 mph.

Summary:
This truck has performed great in the winter. The interior is redesigned from my 08 Ram 1500 SXT. This is all around a wonderful truck and the Cummins reputation for durability is second to none. 17 mpg on highway, 9 mpg in town (with #1 Diesel and Power Service additive)

Similar Products Used:
2008 Ram 1500. Test drove 2011 Ford F250 Powerstroke as well...just felt too cheap. Could not sacrifice the Cummins for a test rat engine like the new Powerstroke.

Review 2 of 26

Price Paid:  $33500.00 from Lithina Dodge

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 2500 QC 4x4 Cummins 6.7L

Strengths:
Cummins diesel
truck is built well

Weaknesses:
interior is a little plain and the seats arent as comfortable as my old Chevy. But the diesel and truck are far better.

Summary:
24000 miles and nothing...nothing has gone wrong. The truck is capable of 14mpg in town and 18.5 to 20.7 mpg hand calculated highway. And it is a 3/4 ton so I dont have to worry when I haul the slide-in camper. First truck I have ever owned that has not had anything but oil changes in the first two years. Solid truck. The ride isnt bad although it can be a little bouncy on very rough roads. But then again, it is a truck and not a car. I expect the Cummins will go for several hundred thousand miles. Dont try that with a gas motor. Even though diesel is a bit more expensive I can run biodiesel with no downsides and the truck mileage is pretty efficient vs gas trucks I have owned...even 1/2 tons. The exhaust brake in the mountains means my brakes are lasting an unbelievably long time.

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 Dodge 2500 4X4 Standard Cab

Strengths:
5 speed trans.

Weaknesses:
Very poor clearance under bumper and front end (ie. scraps or bottoms out in every little ditch). Very poor visibility over hood and windshield wipers. 40/20/40 front seat and nonremoveable plastic tray on floor. Only 2 passengers fit comforably, not a work truck.

Review 5 of 26 , from Grand Island NY

Price Paid:  $27815.00 from West Herr Dodge

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT

Strengths:
Interior Room, Exterior looks and great engine

Weaknesses:
Five speed transmisson. When pulling with over drive off, shifts down to 3rd, I think they should have set it up to only drop to fourth (?)

Summary:
This is my 3rd Dodge Ram. I wouldn't buy anything else. The Hemi is the best motor in a long time. I pull a 30 foot fifth wheel trailer (9,000 + lbs) like it's not even there. I average 13.7 city and 16.8 Highway (pulling trailer is 8.7 mpg) I'll have a better mpg idea pulling when I come back from vacation (1600 miles to check it out

had a 1994 Ram 1500 (5.2) and a 1998 2500 Quad Cab (5.9)
