It illuminates red. I've not had my Uconnect updated since I bought the truck in September. I'm hoping I can simply get the upgrade done and have it solve the issue. It has never caused me any...

"Vehicle Phone Requires Service"

I'm the current owner of a 2013 Ram SLT with Uconnect 8.4. About once every three weeks, early in the drive, I get a notification on the 8" screen (not the gauge cluster) indicating that the "Vehicle...

In response to the original question, I've not had issues getting into eighth gear, even on our single digit mornings a couple of weeks ago in Alabama. The minimum speed it will get into 8th gear is...

I have refilled right when the "fuel low" was indicated in the range to empty display and the truck held about 24 gallons (26 gallon tank). My light comes on with a displayed 50-60 miles to empty,...

What speeds were you running? I've found mpg drops significantly beyond 60 mph.

Speaking of the horn, my 1500's horn is incredibly loud IN the cab. Does anyone else feel like it's blowing the horn from right behind the dashboard? I've never experienced a horn like this.

My Pentastar (2wd 3.21 Gears) Ram usually warms to the 215-221 range and bounces around there. I've never seen it past 225, but I do no hauling or major elevation changes. My trans stays in the...

After 4,300 miles I'm still digging the 3.6L engine. It is relatively light on torque when climbing a grade at 60mph (it'll drop down a gear or two) but that's what the 8-speed is for, right?

If...

I would have gotten the back-up camera, for sure. I have a mid-grade Ram (SLT, Luxury Pkg, UConnect 8.4) and that's the only thing I'd love to have that I don't already.

My dealership doesn't charge me for the first 6 oil changes (every 6 months or 5,000 mile intervals, whichever comes last). I will hit the mileage intervals much sooner than the time intervals. Is...

For what it's worth, I get the idea that city mileage takes a bigger toll on these than a typical vehicle. Getting a 5,000 brick up and lumbering under its own weight requires a good bit of energy....

You can use 87 octane and save even more. The 3.6L is tuned to run optimally on 87; the engine's computer is not tuned deliver better performance on 89 or 91-93 like the Hemi.

I've got the 3.21 axle on my Pentastar. It's mainly a freeway cruiser that doesn't need to tow. At 60mph I'm running 1300 rpm; I dig it (and the mpgs).

I use a first generation iPod touch in my Ram as well (Uconnect 8.4) running iOS 5 and have no issues with it playing my media. The only difference is that mine is a lowly 8 gig model.

While I have noted some servo-type sounds after shut-off, I've never noted any hissing sounds when driving at speed; however, I do have a 3.6L 4x2, quite a different powertrain in general.

I'd be the first guy in the service bay in the morning. Make them get in it while you spray water on it.

The Ram is averaging 24mpg roughly. In the same driving conditions and commute, my Sonata (249hp V6) averaged 29mpg. The Accord was a 166hp 4-cyl and averaged low-30s. So, it is a notable drop for...

Thank you for the response. It isn't so noticeable as to cause me to worry or fret over it. It's as if it will "jump" from 61 to 62 mph for example, but doesn't always do it.

Pentastar - Ram meets Fam

Agreed. For me that's exactly what it has become. I am coming out of three midsize sedans in a row (96 Accord, 06, Accord, 09 Sonata) and wanted something bigger. I'm 6'5" 210lbs, but have a lengthy...
