Well supposedly these 4th gen trucks have a much better for and finish, and better over all quality. I will say I love the interior. The seats are very comfortable, the cab is huge, with large back seats and a lot of leg room, it has the most usable console of any of the big 3, and the uconnect system works great. I figured I'd give them a shot, but it's the same piddly fit and finish bullshit it's always been.Damn that's a ton of problems for a brand new truck. Especially that stupid **** like window seals, come on really dodge? They may look the best but I could never buy one with their track records. I wonder how long until those transmissions start blowing up..
Gas mileage sounds like my dad's 2011 ecoboost. 18 to 20 unloaded then gets 8 pulling a 32 foot camper trailer. That thing has its own issues being first year. I've always told him something was screwy with the transmission and sure as **** he got a notice in the mail a while ago about the speed sensors causing issues but they don't have a fix yet.
So far the consensus is that the 8 speed is miles ahead of the previous 6 speed, and there haven't been too many problems with them. Supposed to be pretty solid. I can tell you that you never know the thing shifts and it works awesome when towing, and just normal driving.
Dukes of Hazzard style!I was generalising more than speaking to your specific situation. If I were you, I'd order a truck with no doors or gauges next time.
Does your Ram not have the 8 speed?I don't know why our Trannies would blow up. I'm familiar with the 545RFE in my Grand Cherokee and that thing is a beast.
When I rebuilt my Grand, I did replace just about everything in it, though. From heater core, to pistons and piston rings. It was like an 8 month project and I still have a few things to do it. Hopefully my truck just works for the next 10 years. (In defense of my Grand Cherokee, I did buy it broken and not running. Someone ran it till it overheated and had a bunch of electrical issues.)
