Early return is very good on this purchase

by KB from Grand Rapids | June 29, 2020

In my few weeks owning this RAM 1500, it has exceeded my expectations. I have put on over 1,000 miles, including through mountains, carried heavy loads, and run around town. Gas mileage has exceed my expectations. Handing is excellent.

Worst vehicle I have ever owned

by Do not buy a dodge from Wooler | June 25, 2020

I do not know where to start, this truck has been the worse vehicle I have ever owned, nothing but problems. They have changed quite a few electrical modules on the truck since I bought it new and only has 65 000 Km on it now. The back up camera works when it wants to, the truck starts when it wants to, sometimes the transmission does not engage and appears to remain in park. Chrysler Canada always asks the dealer to erase the code and send the customer away and basically hope it does not happen again and well of course it happens again so they waste your time some more. Truck still has problems they do not know whats wrong so they blamed all the problems on an aftermarket brake controller so they removed it and told me to go home and see if it happens again and it sure did. The chrome on the bumper is rusting from inside out keeping in mind this truck is 2 years old. They blame the issues now on towing.... um was this not designed to tow. Since new if I hook up my 16ft tandem trailer empty the truck squats, it can not handle any weight, my wife's ford edge handles the trailer better and I'm not kidding. Overall I recommend you buy anything but a Chrysler unless you plan on using it like a Prius, because it can not compete with any other truck, it tows terrible, terrible fuel economy, electrical nightmare and Chrysler does not care for its customers at all. Like I feel like I am not asking to much by just asking for it to function as it should.
