Default 10k mile report 1500 Hemi

My odometer just rolled past 10000 miles today and here are my likes and small quibbles about it.

Likes: POWER- not much to say but this truck has a stout engine for sure.

Milage: Considering the size and power of the Hemi this thing does really well. According to the onboard computer I avg 16.5mpg overall and I have a size 13 foot if you know what I mean.

Interior- There are more cup holders than I know what to do with and plenty of storage. I love the overall fit/ finish and clean look. The cabin is very quiet even on the hwy.

The only thing I would change is the transmission downshifting. I find that if I am on the hwy and have to slow down the trans stays in high gear rather than down shift as the truck slows down. This causes a delay when I go to accelerate again because the trans is down shifting 2-3 gears before it starts accelerating.

All in all this truck is the best I've ever owned.

I have a few miles less then you, I just rolled 638 miles on mine.
For being my first ever Dodge, I love it.
I have the Quad Cab 4x4 with Hemi.
I came out of a '12 4runner and to my surprise, the 4runner with the v6 got 2-3 mpg more, so i feel i really didnt lose anything buy stepping up to a Dodge.
Just have to get use to FULL SIZE again lol
Great truck over all so far in my book.
