2015 Ram 3500 Laramie, 6.7 Cummins, single rear

Bought this 2015 Ram 3500 Laramie truck in October 2021 used with 31,000 miles. I have had it seven days without an engine light being on. Dealer said it was a sensor in the DEF system, so they replaced it, next day engine light is on. This went on two or three more times. Quit going back. Engine light still on after another year. No one can seem to find the issue. So I havent been able to use the remote start because of the engine light issue. It cost me $100 to have a head light replaced because you have to remove the grill to change a bulb. The fuel gage sensor is tied up in the fuel pump so when the fuel gage quits working you cant just buy a sensor, you have to replace a perfectly good fuel pump just to get your fuel gage fixed. So that is around $600 parts and labor. $450 wheel bearings, both sides have gone out at 80,000 miles. However, it pulls great, I get about 20+ mpg on the highway at 65mph. The 4x4 is like a mountain goat, I think it will climb a tree. Interior is very nice, love the heated steering wheel and seats, front and back. All leather. The 6.7 Cummins carries this truck and a dump trailer with a skidsteer very easily. I run 35" mud slingers because I am off road some for work. Overall, I like the truck, but the DEF thing is a pain in the patootie.

3.1

Run forrest, run.

It is by far the best looking truck out there and the interior is great. All that glitters is not gold! I have a 2015 and a 2016 with the diesel, I get two recalls a month between them both. I just traded the 2016 for a toyota, it isn't as pretty but it should run longer than the warranty. Looking to get rid of the 2015 dually diesel soon. Buyer beware!

Worst truck I ever own

I'm on my third transmission and only have 60 thousand miles on it and I don't even pull anything and was told good luck at the dealership when this transmission was put in I would not recommend anyone to bye this style truck
