Tranny is a LEMON! Complain.

I have enjoyed Dodge vehicles for years. I bought my first brand new Dodge Ram 1500 STICK shift new 2001. Then I bought my retirement Dodge 1500 Ram 9 speed on 20014, with 2 miles. I paid it off 5 years later. My tranny goes out after 71,000 miles, costs $9,446.39 warranty expired right after I paid my last payment & I even got a 1-year extension when I bought it Tranny is on hold because they stopped making them!

Always later

Just like the last review I put in. The trk also running into trouble. And I should try again later. And the dealer hasn’t been any help

Just can’t get the smell of this xxx off me

I must say this. I have never been a Chrysler fan. And this is my second ram trk. The first one was a xxx. But after many yrs And seeing so many other rams on the road I just had to go for the eco-diesel After giving up my Chevy I purchased this 2016 ram. And in the first few months Surprise surprise surprise! The truck started messing up. First one thing then another. And I tried to get my dealer to do the recalls. But to no avail. Once they even told me it had the wrong weight oil in it. I’m now so disappointed with this xxx! Can’t use it But can’t get rid of it. So many people laugh in my face I not only purchased an eco-diesel. But purchased a Ram trk So if I live long enough to get away from this xxx. I’ll never ever screw myself like this again And as far as the money Chrysler has promised several times several years now. Guess that was another bald faded lie

When your – lights don't come off

You have a lot of people on a Rams site with the years between 2013 and 2016 complaining about their Uconnect not working and their – lights not shutting off and having to deal with it I see maybe you should do something about it

Bad Motors from Dodge

I bought a 2016 eco diesel dodge ram that was brand new. It was serviced at the dealers where I bought it. The motor had to be replace at about 75000 miles. The same dealer did the work. Now at 150000 miles the motor is gone again. I contacted Dodge about this and they are unwilling to help me in any way. Needless to say I am very unhappy.

Definitely the budget version of the big three

It is a decent truck but the quality is not up to the standards of Ford or Chevy. Only five years old and already rusting out.

4.7

Can't really score reliability only owned 3 days

This truck was what I needed at a price I could live with. Very comfortable, decent ride, we will see about fuel consumption. Big V8 with plenty of power.

1.8

Don’t have the car

The looks of the car is nice but its not performing probably and they are suppose to fix it but keep trying to clear the codes and they keep popping up because something is wrong with it and they refuse to fix it.

8 speed V6 does not go into or stay in top gear

It does not stray or go into top gear long enough so I am not getting the good gas mileage I was expecting. Brakes need replacing, and parking brake sticking at only 30k. ( all my other vehicles good for 6 years at least before brake service and never any parking brake issues.
