Default 2011 Ram Not happy owner

I have owned the truck for 30 days. It has 17,000 miles on it. One week in to ownership the truck clunked and put itself into Reverse as I was moving at 40 mph. Dealership had it ten days and concluded computer failed and it was replaced. Thirteen days later it happens again, The truck clunked and the back up camera came on, park assist display came on at 40mph. Truck leaking transmission fluid and was towed back to dealership. Dangerous situation if a guy is on snow or ice and the computer decides to throw the truck into reverse. I smelt burning wires and burning oil. First Dodge I have ever purchased and I am having serious buyers remorse. Anyone gone through this scenario?

That would be scary
crazy computer, bad transmission, etc.
i would be concerned about the rear end gearing & the drive shaft U-joints too

Agree with the above info and Somehow I wonder if it was a problem truck to begin with, 2011 only 17k miles, we are in 2013 and that year is almost over, I would be looking at whoever sold you this truck and them taking it back. JMO

you might be able to find out who the original owner was & contact them to see if there were any issues with it

then IF the dealership that sold it to you, knew about said issues, you may have options ...

Sounds like a used and abused Ram as I haven't read of this "going into reverse" on its own symptom. Previous owner Must have had problems with it before you bought it? Vehicle history report a must on this one.

Been on this forum for over three years and have never heard of this particular problem. Agree with the other posts to check on the history of this truck if possible.

A 2011 w/17k miles is suspicious? What would you think of my 14k miles then?

Appreciate the response, I have contacted Ram 800 number and logged a complaint against the truck. I saw a history report and purchased it from the dealer that did all the oil changes and service work since new. I will contact previous owner to see if the report has been altered. I tell you what that computer is telling the truck to do things it physically cant do. It is Jacked up!!!! I did think of rear end issues, transfer case problems, the list just keeps growing. Thanks for your concern

This is definitely a first. Have never heard of a non-possessed car throwing itself in reverse.
