Very disappointed dodge

by Mark from Goldsboro | December 12, 2019

Has A very distinct squeal in the a.m. worse when put into gear. Dealer says nothing they can do about it. Second dealer says Chrysler cares doesn’t have an answer. I would not purchase from them again. That is Chrysler Dodge

Big Disappointment

by TLWILLI from Houston, Tx | December 05, 2019

The transmission failed in my 2018 Ram 4x4 2500 at 6200 miles. The pump went out and the internal metal wear was excessive. This was my first venture away from Ford, really doubting my decision now. At least it's still under warranty.

They dont make them like they used to

by Callie rose from Graham, wa | December 04, 2019

I've owned 2 2018 rams, 3 2012-2017 f350s. All diesels. I'll start this off by saying they're all excellent trucks now, they're reliable with a warranty to back it up. But, with mass production comes some simple downfalls. For example, the sun visor in my 2001 ram 2500, it has no play and is extremely sturdy. The 2018 ram 2500, has extreme amounts of play. All of the interior pieces are extremely cheaply made. Some dont even line up. However, unfortunately that's the price you have to pay for a cummins. Now, they ride very well, and handle well. The 68rfes aren't as bad as the talk says. Get a line pressure booster and call it a day. Another huge thing. Power stroke and duramax are both v8s. The cummins is an inline 6. It will never feel as "sporty" as it has a better compression ratio in comparison to both its competitors. I feel in my heart that it is a more overall reliable vehicle than both the stroke and the max. I just wish they made them a little bit better on the interior.
