Recalls are only for safety issues. You wont see that in your mail box.

My 11' center console doesnt close for crap and I am taking delivery of a 13' next Friday...Ill be sure to check that before I leave the stealership.

Guess I'm on the old theory that if a truck has a $44k sticker on the window, it should work. Hahahaha!!

Now that I think about it.....the only one I have ever received was for a wiper motor, which is safety related. Guess when I take it in for service I'll just tell them what the problems are and pray they actually do something about it. They love to forget about you once they've made their $$ off of you...

Enjoy your new truck! Loving mine so far.

Ain't that the truth!!!

I live in NY and bought my truck in Michigan. I have a friend here in NY that has a good friend in Michigan that owns a dealership. Well the other day I took my 2013 sport in to my local dealership to have the radio looked at it. I use to own a 99 Dodge years ago and took the 99 to this dealership for service. So when I made the appointment for the 2013 I was still in their system. Well, when I got to the dealership they were nice at first UNTIL they found out I didn't purchase the vehicle from them!!! Needless to say I will drive the extra 15 minutes to another dealership and try my luck there.

Back to the subject

Yesterday my local news, phone and outside thermometer said it was around 12 degrees. Started the truck, it said -1, started driving went down to -3. Picked up brother (who's a Chevy guru). He looked at the temperature on the radio and said "there's no way it's -3 out" lol. Then he proceeded to say "you should have bought a Chevy" . I said no way I love my Ram!!

Now if they could only fix the temperature thingy..

Looking like it's pretty common. Hopefully they'll have whatever they need for it in stock when I go and stop LYING to me.

Default Its not just the OAT gauge

I'm about fed with this thing [ 8.4A]. The OAT is never even close to being correct, but, thats the least of my concerns. The compass is usually screwed up and takes forever for it to figure where we are headed. The radio keeps losing signal. The phone is usually not recognized and will not accept a re-entry. I'm about ready to fix it with a hammer.

I have the same problems with the temp off by about 7 degrees and the center console takes a hard slam to stay closed.
