The approximate failure mileage was 8,000. The dash was in one piece, which is unusual for a used truck. Anyways that gave me a chance to drive it cross country and it was a dream. This truck has impressed me all the way around, except that I did exspect better fuel milage than 16 for a average. I have 2 Rams right now. We are not going to order another truck or take our money back.
Being that the truck was only a week old I was extremely hesitant but agreed to the repair.

I have a 2012 Dodge Ram Truck with a bit over 63000 miles and I am barely driving it because of the concern to cause more damage to the transmission. This truck has more than ample power for the job. The four door crew cab is roomy,and with storage compartments you would'nt beleive. Worst truck I have ever owned. Lost all power to steering and brakes creating very difficult to control vehicle.
Dealer would not replace failed part and instead put whole new pump assembly inside fuel tank. Also, before the brakes get warmed up, be careful and slowly press them or you may end up hitting your head on the steering wheel. I have heard nothing but horror stories about the 6. Paint is so thin, I have chips in paint all over front, and sides!!! We have decided to order the repair parts and have a qualified outside tech repair the truck properly at our expense. Had a smog sensor at the turbo that went bad and had to be towed a half mile to repair shop. The contact stated that the dealer and the manufacturer were contacted numerous times and they were not able to provide an estimated time from when the parts would be available for the repairs. Always multiple visits and they never seem to fix the problems.
I have not worked with 2012 or 2013 rams, but I here very good things on interior and build quality. Turned the truck back on about 15 minutes later and went to put into drive and it wouldn't move. Come to find out they cost same as Ford and Chevy new but when it's time to trade Ram, no one wants them. Overall in the past month i have put on over 4000 miles with little complaint it hauls butt when I tell it to an works even harder when I tell it to all in all u can't beat this truck for what it offers an at the price u can purchase it for I would recommend this truck to anyone. While driving 50 mph, the vehicle started to vibrate without warning. Brand new and only 6 miles when I got it and now it has 242,000 miles. They typical setup we all see.
Excessive vent pressure levels may result in brake pedals that can be slow to return. May get another one of the Rams when it is time to upgrade. And Ford has had it's share of litigation as well. The contact felt that since the failure was reported in November of 2013, there should be a remedy available before may of 2014. I currently have a 2011 6.
The contact repaired the vehicle himself. In my case, I have had the truck serviced with the same dealer since it was new and they never warned me about this, but clearly are aware of this problem. The manufacturer was not notified of the delay. I refuse to buy Government Motors ever. You can try to convince me it's junk until your blue in the face but I tow with it.
And I chose this vehicle due to reputation of Dodge Ram Tough. Key and battery are fine. Dodge did not pay for trans valve body. Brand new Dodges have gone up in recent years too. It was one year old and wasn't even broke in.
The current and failure mileages were 59,249. Truck was 2 days old. I would even go as far as to say people make up fake accounts and claim there are problems when there are not regardless of what truck you have. I also have to fight my husband to drive it day to day. Normally, the dashes are cracked and broken from the sun and heat. But maybe that was just the first couple of years. I have bought six diesel trucks.
Also, before the brakes get warmed up, be careful and slowly press them or you may end up hitting your head on the steering wheel. I have 2 Rams right now. Also, wish I would have bought it in black. Old truck would get 23 - 24. I just put on my 4th set of tires about 4000 miles ago.
