This edition of the Ram 1500 is much improved since the last time we tested one in 2004. It rides and handles better -- and it's quieter. The optional full-time four-wheel-drive system and stability control are definite pluses. But the ride remains jittery, the rear seat is cramped, and getting in and out requires a steep climb. The 2500 heavy-duty version (which we also tested) has a harsher ride and longer braking.

What Owners Say

Alignment

"Once again it was the dealer service department which did not do the job correctly. I had new shocks and struts placed on the vehicle and they said they aligned the front end. Since my previous problem with the balance of the tires caused me to take the vehicle to a dedicated tire shop I also had them check the alignment. One side of the front end was out of the specification window and had to be re-aligned."

Anonymous, ID (2007 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 5.7-L V8)
Wheel balance

"It wasn't so much a manufacturer problem. It was a Dodge factory dealer service problem. They did not balance the new tires properly and I had a vibration over 65 MPH. I took it back to the service dept several times, each time saying it felt like an out of balance tire/wheel. Each time I asked them to balance the tires and see if they could find any other problem. Each time they assured me that they balanced the tires, but later when I got fed up and took it to a tire shop they found one wheel out of balance. Not just incorrect weights, but they hadn't even followed proper balance procedure. Once the tire shop balanced the tires the vibration was completely gone."
