I have had my truck going on 5 years I bought it used.

I have had my truck going on 5 years I bought it used. It’s my work truck, office and recreational vehicle. The issues that I have had are regular maintenance and wear tear. The truck has a firm ride so if you hit a pothole or bump you will feel it. I pull trailers 6 days out of the week and the truck is a work horse. Gas mileage is good considering what you are driving. In pulling a trailer I usually get 12-13 mpg. When not pulling a trailer highway mpg is usually 16-18. I bought my 2016 RAM with 30,000 miles and now have 112,568 miles on it. I due regular maintenance on it. My opinion I started getting better gas mileage when I changed to K&N cold air intake also added better torque.


Never Again!

70,000 miles serviced meticulously then all of a sudden Def codes to be told only covered for 50,000 miles ? When i purchased truck with extended warranty they said 7years 75000 miles oh and clutch is weak could never handle torque since new ? Rogers Motors Thanks for no help !!


No good

I spent to much gas en my v8 5.7, 2016 7.4miles,per gallon trucks are really really sucks drives for 4hour and 30minutes 140 dollars I think is over the top


Good but scary truck

I purchased this vehicle being told it had been under a 150 point inspection. When the truck drives after 45mph it shakes like crazy and because they switch my tires and didn’t tell me they were the wrong rating size I had to buy new ones. Also was told the shaking was fixed and then was told the reason it shakes is because they put the tires I asked for on it. Even though it shook like that before they switch tires. Also the brakes squeak real bad and they said they don’t hear anything yet I can drive down the road with the radio loud and hear it.


I love the truck so far. Everything I was looking.

I love the vehicle color and the appearance of it. It will be able to take our family everywhere. It has a great ride to it also.


Wish my transmission shifted :-(

Love the Megacab. Hat known/neglected transmission solenoid issue from Ram. Locks in 4th or just pulses between gears. Even with forum known complaints Ram says there's no issue so I have to put out $1100 for new solenoid pack replacement. Just canceled my new $87K Ram order, after wasting all efforts to resolve with Ram's customer service.


Best Truck I've had so far

I've been lulled, for too long, into thinking any sort of 1500/150 would be able to keep up with what a real truck is intended to do. That's what sent me on my hunt for a 2500 and once I found my 2016 RAM 2500, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. I hauled 1600 lbs of rock the day after I bought it and the truck didn't even notice it. Very pleased.


Diesel baby!!!!

I love my truck because it is a diesel With a Cummins engine and Kim for anything and everything that I need to pool I love my truck the way it handles the way it looks and the way it performs


17 mpg when running 89 octane

I’ve had a lot of diesels, but due to blue def and regulations I went with the 5.7 hemi. I was getting 17 mpg running 89 octane. 285/60/18 tire wheel combo. I recently purchased 12/35/20 wheel tire combo and get 13 mpg which I am happy with. S&B intake it runs like a top no issues at 90,000 miles right now. I can’t get rid of it now. Why sell something that always starts and never has issues haha


My first truck and I'm impressed

I have always owned cars but an upcoming career change dictates I get a truck. I knew I wanted a 2500 (if you're going to drive a truck, it should ride like a truck IMO) so that limited my selection a little bit. I got a crew cab and love the amount of space in it! Also, it's a bit higher off the ground than a 1500 would have been which I like. The only "hard" part of the transition has been getting used to the size of this thing. It handles well but parking lots are a challenge. Drive thru's are also tough. The ride on city streets is nice and smooth as long as the street is that way too. Highway driving is equally so. Average MPG from the 5.7L is 13. I haven't done any towing or hauling with it yet so I can't speak to those capabilities. Overall, a nice vehicle and one I would recommend to anyone looking for a truck.
