Man...i'm really sorry about what's hapenning to you, hope the lemon law works out for you. There's no way you should be having that much problems with a brand new truck. Worst in a case like this is the time/gas your loosing everyday bringing it back to the dealer for no reason...
i was planning on keeping that truck for a long time, obviously that ain't gonna happen. If i had knew i would've skipped on the looks and comfort of the Ram, and bought the sturdiness and reliability of a Ford
if we're having tranny problems after 5 months i don't even want to imagine what'll be like 5-6 years down the road. I mean i've owned numerous jeeps (witch are also chrysler, go figure) and never had ANY issues....and i've beaten the shit out of them. The truck i treat like a freakin princess and it still sucks...
heres some of the other storys:

I've had my tranny start and stay in 4th gear many times. A shudder/shake can be part of the problem. When the s/s happens, it can stall the engine. If it dosen't s/s and stall, the only way to clear the trans out of 4th gear is to stop and restart the engine. I always back into my drive so I always start in drive. This ONLY happens the first start of the day, and about 3 or 4 times a month. It has been in the dealer noumerous times. The first few times I cleared it to drive it to the dealer and they "Can not duplicate, owner must leave over night." I don't want them to have it that long.
Now I have driven it in 3 times with it locked in 4th gear and they have not shut it off before testing.The S/M has now told me to drive it right in the garage to the trans man when it is locked up.
So far, in 6 trips, they have to order parts so two trips each, they have replaced: 1) Vbody Pkg, 2) Module-Powertrain Control, 3) Transduce-Pressure Sensor. The last "repair" (replace parts until you find it) was 1/18/11.
It has locked in 4th twice after yhe last repair, one on Sunday, the other going to the hospital. Going to the dealer not an option ether time,maybe next time.
Hope they fix yours faster than have mine. ( KEEP A LOG)
What was the other thread? My dealer is at a loss?
I am filling Lemon Law forms.
