After putting on 5500 miles, I love the truck, though I hate getting rid of my Dakota, it has been a good truck for me,

2 Jul

There is a rotary encoder on the dash to switch tracks and tine the radio.

30 May

The radio that turns on every time you start is annoying

26 Jan

but the lack of a cd player puts me at the mercy of a radio jockey's selection or the "high tech" electronics that just don't seem to give easy self selection options once the music is stored there.

31 May

Radio acts up when hot.

2 Apr

FCA 36,000 / 60,000 mile factory warranty does not cover the gas tank.

15 Mar

FCA Does not stand behind their warranty you have to get a lawyer to make them fix warranty issues.

29 Dec

but all the little things got fixed under warranty finally after taking it to the dealer who didn’t want to fix anything on the first try.

12 Oct

It was not covered under warranty because the plastic parts physically broke.

4 Mar

A/C -heater blower was replaced due to making noises.

29 Jan

Infamous hemi tick, transmission slips, the interior rattles.

20 Nov

Vibration became worse when the fuel pump was replaced.

16 Feb

but road noise is greater than I had expected, louder than my 2012 Ram Bighorn.

5 Jan

The stock stereo has great sound and the engine noise is just the right amount not too loud

26 May

My best mileage has been 30+ and my worst was driving across South Dakota 84 mph with a 40 mph head wind.

23 Nov

The only repairs have been a small rear transfer case seal leak and the very well known issue with the exhaust manifold bolts breaking at around 65,000 miles.

23 Jan

If you buy this truck for any other reason than driving daily at highway speeds the Exhaust Regen will kick in and even when I drove at highway speed it would clear only to reappear next day.

22 Oct

EGR cooler is leaking into the exhaust system (common problem) FCA won't even return a phone call.

20 Apr

The exhaust note sounds deep and throaty when starting or accelerating and just loud enough to sound impressive without be obnoxious.

28 Oct

My dealer is slow and it is irritating to have to update the software, change out the entire exhaust and etc.

23 Nov

7 Feb

I've never owned a vehicle with this many issues, big and small.

16 May

I have a small water leak (I think at the top of the windshield), the interior map lights only work some of the time, and the engine knocks for a while when started until the oil pump warms up (I've heard this is common).

21 Apr

Only have been back to the dealer for small things.

14 Jun

Only small problem I have is with the door's staying open.

28 Mar

The charger is falling out, the Bluetooth works intermittently, the damn dash squeeks like crazy, and now our windshield washer fluid light keeps popping up

16 Jan

One issue is fog light brackets wear, causing some highway shake.

20 Oct

I had a brand new Chevy 1500 Silverado Z71 4x4 which I wanted to get rid of within 6 months because of the internal rattles and noise.

16 May

Drivers window auto up/down only works some of the time, and sometimes makes a loud vibration noise going down.

21 Apr

Took it to the dealer 3 times for steering vibrations that could not be resolved.

30 May

Make the brilliant idea and get the crew cab 2015 for one week,notice a weird noise, took it back to the dealer, they need to replace a part, that I don't even know, for my surprise they don't have it.Back order.

28 Dec

Peeling paint at body seam under driver door.

1 Jun

Next after around 600 miles my front bumper has blemished paint spots that look like the sun "burnt" this area.

28 Mar

The charger is falling out, the Bluetooth works intermittently, the damn dash squeeks like crazy, and now our windshield washer fluid light keeps popping up

16 May

I have a small water leak (I think at the top of the windshield), the interior map lights only work some of the time, and the engine knocks for a while when started until the oil pump warms up (I've heard this is common).

28 Oct

I can buy a Garmin and stick it on the windshield with free lifetime updates for a little more than $150 and the Ram radio that is an extra $1000 for navigation costs me $150 to update? Unbelievable.

14 Dec

Smooth ride, quite interior and way better gas millage than my 20 year old 5.2L Dakota.

6 May

Extremely sluggish transmission windows fog up in seconds.

23 May

Had a transmission leak costing 1200 (at dealer) to fix just after warranty expired.

18 Feb

The most concerning of these is that my transmission has went into “limp mode” 3 separate times with all three of them at highway speeds.

4 Jan

Con's: (1) Transmission programming.

11 Sep

The engine and transmission continue to perform as expected with two repairs being made to the engine covered under MaxCare.

13 Dec

Around 95,000 miles the transmission went out and I had two broken exhaust manifold bolts.

25 Aug

However, the transmission is starting to act "funny".

23 Aug

Then the transmission went out.

17 Apr

With a 6 speed transmission I wouldn't expect this.

27 Aug

The other problem which is much more of an issue is the transmission.

8 Nov

Still got that loud noise sound!!

18 Feb

I can not believe the rock noise that is created during this experience.

19 Oct

Shortly after the recall the truck was making a loud rattling noise on acceleration.

Worried about floppy rear windows that rattle when down.

8 Sep

When they are partially down and driving there is a very loud bothering noise.

20 Jan

Nice trucks to bad they're falling apart a little bit more each time you drive it down the rood, and then you're told "that part isn't covered under the meny recalls Dodge has out on their trucks,,,, just replace this one with a New 1500 ram.

4 May

The second and more serious problem are the lifters they fail any time after 50,000 miles.

22 Dec

We traced the problem back to a bad ignition switch and key fob, which has the same design as the 2010 Chrysler vans that were recalled.

13 Dec

The one of the lifters failed and destroyed the camshaft, another $3000 repair.

1 Mar

perfect truck so far and I have 10,000 miles on it with the only problem ever was a faulty dash sensor that kept the headlights on in the daytime and was fixed the 2nd day I owned it under warranty.

2 Oct

RAM is aware of the short comings, issues with evaporator cores, cam shafts, lifters, tracking sensors, poor quality seat covers, and exhaust manifold and for their benefits issues occur at 5 year, 100,000 miles at end of warranty.

13 Dec

Then one month later, now out of warranty, some sensor in the intake manifold caused my transmission to shift poorly.

23 Aug

Now, today at 127,xxx miles, I find out the camshaft is worn and has to be replaced, NOT UNDER WARRANTY!!!
