Have a 2012 1500 CC 4x4 with 16800 miles. Just had the oil changed again last week and was told my right front strut was leaking. I have an appointment for replacement in a few days. That's the only issue so far.

Yes I have the same problem 6100 miles has been doing this since 2120 miles I have had it to the dealer twice, just got it back today after a week and a half they said that they are waiting on Chrysler to advise them. I was a diagnostic tech for 25 years at a shop that people brought there vehicles after other shops and dealers could not fix in fact we had dealers bringing there problems to us. We never let a vehicle beat us. I am about 99% sure it is a bad connection or a wire shorting out. Mine only does it on a rough surface or a hard fast turn. The service adviser asked me why I hadn't fixed it myself Then she even ask if I need a job when I picked up the truck today, but I am retired and it is under warranty.
That may be the only way it will get fixed.

Mine did that and the throttle stuck! 8200 miles! The dealership ordered and installed a new throttle pedal sensor and no problems since but they didn't write the problem on the invoice..like they were trying to hide it???

OOOO...I've had issues!!! Had it one month...576 miles and the auto headlights weren't coming on and it needed an alignment. 8200 miles and the throttle stuck. Two weeks later...another alignment! One more month later and the dealer blames the alignment problems on the crappy tires but they won't buy new ones or put up the money to get partially reimbursed by Goodyear.

Finally called Chrysler to complain and was advised to see a different dealer. That dealer said the first either had an old machine or someone incompetent running it. AND...gave me another alignment...

2012 Sport CC with just over 8,000 miles and I have had to replace my PCM. The truck went into "limp along" mode in 4th gear all of a sudden. It was in the shop two days.

20,000 on mine and still love it like I did when it was new. I just told my wife yesterday while out for a ride to dinner that this is the quietest vehicle I have ever owned and she agreed. She has a 12 Honda CRV and you can hear road noise terrible in it.

Default Where to start

I've had my 2012 ram power wagon about six months and nothing but problems with it. It got towed in today because it blew a hole in the block about the size of my fist on the highway, I wasn't towing or hauling just cursing, if this goes like every other time ive tryed to take it in for service ill probably have to get lawyers involved just to get them to warrenty it.
prior to that the throttle got stuck wide open on me twice while driving and dodge couldn't find any reason or solution. The plug for the winch was corroded beyond use the first time I tryed to use it and I opened the sun roof one day and the vacume caused by the wind going over it sucked the passenger side window out. I noticed the other day that my trailer break controller is reading that its applying breaks and that might be a problem if I ever have to tow a trailer

This truck has been babbyed since i got it with all oil changes being done early, synthetic fluids and mid grade gas, so its not a piece of junk because of neglect or the way I treat it, prior to this I had a 2008 Chevy that was problem free up to around 220000km and before that a 1995 ram that I got 260000km outa...

All this and it's only been one summer, we'll see what it's first winter in the Canadian oil field will bring.

I'd highly recommend to anyone not getting a dodge truck there's a reason their cheaper than ford and Chevy...

Default Fan Clutch Stuck On

I have had my Ram 1500 Laramie Limited Crew Cab 4X4 for 3 months. It only has about 2000 miles on it. The thermostatic clutch on the engines fan is engaged all the time. The truck sounds like a Kenworth when I take off from a stop light. However, if I drive on the freeway for about 15 to 20 minutes the fan finally frees up and disengages. From then on in it works fine for the whole day. Even if the truck is turned off for long periods of time, when I start it again the fan is not locked. But the next day it's locked up again. I hate to take the truck to the dealer and have his hammer and chisel mechanics sit on the seats with screwdrivers in their back pockets and lean over the front fenders with steel belt buckles on their pants. I think I will just drive it until the clutch "heals" on its own or until I have to take it to the dealer for something else.

This truck sat on the lot for months and months before I bought it in 2013. I wonder if that clutch partially died from lack of use.
