I see a lot of very complimentary reviews on this truck. But I've owned mine for nearly 3 years now and my experience has been and continues to be that, although the truck performs very well and still turns heads--including mine--with it's looks, there's been a litany of reliability problems that have changed my word-of-mouth recommendation from glowing to questioning and now I just tell people that it's been unreliable. Let's review, shall we: rattle in the front door (can't find it, and I've taken that whole door apart), doormat light under the driver's side mirror flickers, vanity mirror lights not working (these last 2 are non-fused circuits, which means it's likely the general electronic module--read expensive), very annoying buzz in the stereo (try getting this troubleshot--impossible), dropped a lifter and the camshaft got chewed up (fixed under warranty, but still an internal engine failure at 58,000 miles), and now the power steering pump is going out. What's next? I had a Ford F150 for over ten years and didn't have a fraction of these problems. Plus the 16 spark plugs need to be replaced every 30,000 miles. ~$250 a service) I really thought I'd keep this truck for 10 years or more. But now I'm thinking "pay it off and sell it".
Owned this truck almost 6 years and it's been great to me. Lived on Long Island in NY for 5 of those years and am just now needing brakes. Been through 2 sets of tires, both wore great. Really no complaints with this trick!
A Nice truck but at 4 yrs old and 75000 , look out
At 75000 miles and 3 payments left on this truck, I got a leak in the roof. Auto repair facility says they fixed a leaky 3rd brake light at the top of rear window. We'll see. Today the light went out on my radio/navigation display panel but the problem wasnt electrical or mechanical. It was me. The other morning while sitting in the dark in my truck, I dimmed the display to the weakest light possible so the lights wouldnt blind me. When daylight came, the display was still on the dimmest display possible and I then couldnt even see it. I thought it was out. That night I went to start up my truck and the display was bright again. I experimented, dimming the display which worked and next daylight, I couldnt see anything in the daylight again. Then I put my finger where the dimmer control was on the screen, turned up the light and all is well.
bought my 2011 truck new after my beloved Tahoe got caught in a flood. I've driven the heck out of it. Its a truck it's suppose to be driven hard. I've got over 110k on it and I love it still. I love the looks I get when I pull up next to some business men and I hop out in my suit, heels and briefcase in hand. It puts their overpriced family vehicles to shame. Only issue I've had is tow mirrors make a whine when your driving over 40 and the wind hits them just right. Just recently I noticed a small oil drop on the driver side front. Oil checks out, nothing loose so ?
I had a new 2005. It's transmission went out at 81,000. Just out of warranty. I didn't want to pay the dealer 8000 for the repair so I made the mistake of trading it for a new 2011. Transmission went out at 4,000 miles. 1st trip to the dealer they said the transmission filter fell out internally. The next week I couldn't get it in drive. The next trip to the dealer they had to rebuild it. The sun roof started leaking after owning it for 2 years. Had it at the dealer multiple times and they couldn't fix it. The last time I called for an appointment they said they couldn't look at it because their rain machine was broken. I live in Tacoma Washington. Go figure it was raining that day. They aid they couldn't work on it in the rain. They have a lemon law in Washington state. Make sure to document and save paperwork for all repairs and file the docs through a lawyer. At 78,000 miles the right side exhaust manifold went out. There is a retrofit with grade eight bolts. They replaced the manifold under warranty but would not use the harder bolts-even if I paid for them. Now the other side is out. I guess it will be new exhaust manifolds every 60,000 to 80,000 miles. When it's on my nickel I will buy the better bolts and have them installed. I don't like drilling and having to extract broken studs. Other than the above mentioned problems this has been a very comfortable truck. It has plenty of power. I will not however buy anything Dodge, Chrysler or Ram again. I will buy a Chevy or GMC diesel with Allison tranny next time. Screw me once shame on you, screw me twice shame on me. I won't get screwed again. I must be a slow learner.
I bought this truck and until now, I had been happy with my purchase. The left rear fender well is showing signs of rust bubbling through the paint. This sort of failure takes months to show itself. My truck ran out of rust-through warranty March of '15. This rust was discovered in December of '15 - a bubble the size of a pencil eraser. It had to have been in play back when I was still under warranty. I maintained this truck to a crazy level of detail. Washed and detailed no less than twice monthly. Still looks new. Except for the bubble on the fender.Called Chrysler, took to their local dealer for photos by the body shop, all their geniuses in Michigan looked at it and said no help with the repair. Hiding behind the warranty without any effort to retain goodwill with a 2-time Chrysler/Ram customer. Their caustic response has lit my fuse. No more Mopars for me, and I WILL dissuade anyone I can from buying Mopar. I am done with these losers. I'm sure Toyota will like my business.
with only being a 20011 and 63,000 easy miles on it, the engine is blown. called dealer and was told this is very common with the 6 cylinder trucks. why didn`t they tell me about that when i was looking to purchase this new truck. thank god i still have warranty but as soon as i can, i will get rid of it and never buy another dodge truck again. always had fords and never issues but decided to try a dodge. big mistake. buyers do your home work not like me.
