Sorry to hear of your problems too! I've had numerous problem. I was told the thump that occurs when I come to a stop sign is "normal". I am disgusted with the problems I've had to deal with and/or live with, whether it's the dealer or the manufacturer. I will NOT be purchasing another Dodge product again.

You've probably tried this...but I'll say it anyway, just in case, my buddy's 04 diesel "F" won't accept but a drop or two without clicking off the nozzle unless he turns the nozzle upside down...then it flows full speed.

I concur BUT it seems the "F" Ecobooms are vying strongly for top lemon "honors"...

They all have problems, no matter what you buy, some problems are worse than others, however, when the problems are happening to you and your truck it makes it much worse!

I have a 13 longhorn....love it.....but it's had and having it's problems. Air Suspension will sometimes raise on it's own OR will not raise/lower when the button is pressed, even though it's says it is on the dash. It had a rattle on the passenger side, took it back to the dealer to find out it had a broken body mount they figured it arrived that way from factory, the rear view mirror does "sag" at first I thought it was imagination but no it really does move on it's own and the truck is going into the shop again tomorrow because the right rear signal light seems to work sometimes and not other times so it is being looked at by the dealers electrical mechanic

With all that being said.....I love my truck! It rides like a dream, handles great, tows the camper great (with good fuel mileage towing)

Anyone that is having problems and not getting service....I hope things change for you because, unfortunately, you never know when you buy a new (or second hand) vehicle what you are getting
Good Luck!

I have 2 2013 Ram Sports 5.7 with 13,000 and 5780 on them with no problems, have had 2 call backs for updates. I have had 2005 5.7, 2006 5.9 and 2011 5.7 with no big troubles except heater door on 2006 [requring problem in Dodge ]. My 2011 had 6 service updates the first 3 mths i had it . 4 for rearend and 1 for EVIC an 1 for tailgate, but had no problems with it. i actually liked it better because of the gearing 390 as to 355 for the 13,s. I dont think much of the new 10,000 mi oil change though, thought the old 7500 was about as far as i wanted to go.

Oh no. Still got some complaining going on here, but mostly just the good stuff.

i have no problems with the 2 13,s i just liked the 393 gears better, wife happy with hers, checked the bed alignment that was being griped about, couldnt ask for any better on our 2 13,s guess i must be really lucky. i will say i stayed simple and didnt get the OverPriced Entertainment/Gps/Uconnect system. Igot a plain old raidio with AM/FM and USB. Our Sport 4x4 are basic, i am instl leather though just like i did on my 2011

I have been to the dealer more times in 4 months more times than I took my ford in three years. I have had the following repaired
Turn signal stalk
Left door scratch at delivery (buffed, still shows)
Passenger visor and visor bracket
Radiator bottle cap
Hole in drivers seat (tech damaged)
Airbag wiring
Recall

I still have the EVIC 45sec delay default
Hood base coat bubbling
Driver and passenger windows knock when lowering windows from top using AUTO

Dealer and Chrysler giving me runaround with EVIC.
