cr has been anti chrysler for many years now.... would you agree with the 2003 ram totally negative cr report its an interesting contradiction. i saved the summary here to review http// on the first page of this pdf it shows the graphical reliability history for 2002 2003 not compiled yet and all the marks are red circle high rating. but pages 3 and 4 are the summary report and it is nothing but negative. any 2003 ram owners disagree with any of the commentary in the page 3 and 4 summary considering getting one but when a review is that negative.... you have to take consumer reports with a grain of salt but at the same time you cant compeltely ignore it. thanks todd .
