So i got it to the dealer this morning, call came in this afternoon, error code said poblem with 2nd gear...no shit, god am i glad mechanics can read OBDII codes, wouldn't have figured that out by myself...

so anyways they'll have to open my 5 months old, 8k miles transmission, witch will probably take most of the week. This can't be good news long term. And apparently there isn't such a thing as a Lemon-Law in Canada, so even if end up having a shitload of prolems with the truck i'm on my own.

I did many months of research between ford and dodge browsing many forums and the handful of people with this issue with dodge doesnt compare to the thousands with fords and their issue. Basically every Ford f150 truck had the issue, clunking when coming to a stop and clunking when taking off and a vibration when cruising at 45 mph, hell I test drove a handful myself and they all did it. Ford last I heard didn't have a proper fix for it. Some people didn't care and just lived with it, others hate it and want it fixed.

I'm sure dodge will get it fixed for you and you can start enjoying your truck, just remember no truck manufacture is perfect when they mass produce a product, it's just impossible to do

and to FRTMAN^^^^^^^^ you love your truck, i get you, good for you, and i hope it continues to treat you good, i really do.
But remember this : there were 3 Fords sold for every Ram in 2010, so you'll hear a lot more about them for sure, and as far as the clunk problem goes, i too have experienced it on a test drive, and they found the fix for it about a month ago, out of spec u-joint wich caused clunking on accel, stop and vibration at high speed. simple fix for wich they issued a service ticket. All the guys at work got it done in the last week.

i'd take 100 drive shaft problems for 1 transmission issue. at least i can fabricate/buy and change anything on the drive shaft...transmissions nowadays with all the sensors and electronics....forget about it.
