Doesn't sound like your HSA is working properly as a number of conditions have to be met before it will become active.

Just got my truck yesterday, Only problem was the LineX guys scratching the bed. The dealer is going to fix it. Traded my 09 silverado off cause GM couldn't figure out the oil burning problem with the AFM.

The only thing I can think of is the hill-assist start. I have recently disabled it and started noticing the thunks after that.

I would think the hill-assist (which keeps the brakes locked until you hit the gas??) might actually be the cause, so I'm not sure how shutting it off would affect this.

Im going to switch it back on today and see if it makes a difference. Has there been any recent news into this?
It's FUEL SLOSH! There are no BAFFLES in your tank! Dodge told me they left them out to save money! Only happenes at or around 3/4 full! HSA has no effect either way! Major FAIL from Dodge! I would have paid extra for the BAFFLES!!

Found out what was causing my odd suspension noise from the front passenger wheel area.
The carpet wasn't in the right place there. It hooks onto two plastic slots on a part up there and it wasn't in either. I don't know if it has been this way from the factory or got moved out of place within the 5000 miles I have put on it.
Either way, the front noise that sounded like my wheel was going to come off when I'd have any suspension travel is gone. very glad.

Almost every time i come to a complete stop the truck seems to 'studder' as if its missing for a second. Its noticeable to the point i look at the RPM gauge to make sure its not stalling. I havent taken it in yet to get it checked.

The drivers lower lumbar inflate/deflate switch sticks in the deflate position. No biggie, I'll get it fixed when i take it in for other things.

Other than that its been a kick a@@ truck. I love it

Hello, I have a 2012 Ram with 60 miles and the auto headlights don't work at all. Also motor 5.7 Hemi sounds like a thrash machine. Is this normal for the engine. This is my first Dodge and not for sure about it.
