"tingle in accelerator pedal"......seriously?

This Ram is the smoothest riding, quietest TRUCK I have ever driven. Actually, it is smoother and quieter than most CARS I have owned.

Has anyone who has these problems ever bought an older pickup or SUV? I dont mean 2010...I mean like a 79 Trailduster or GMC Jimmy or a 77 Ford F150 pickup? Drive one of those and then drive your Ram and report back....LOL

My God.....the 2012 Ram is so far advanced in comfort and smoothness its like night and day.....

Of course, I also drive a 72 Plymouth Barracuda that is hopped up with a cam and headers and duals and a stiff suspension, so it has plenty of vibrations and sounds when I am driving....LOL...maybe that is why I think the Ram is so quiet and smooth.

Has anyone actually stopped to think that some of these "issues" --- tingling in accelerator, alleged torque converter noise etc -- may just be NORMAL and not signs that something is about to let go? Especially when people have these complaints after just barely 1,000 miles.....it just makes me feel like these are normal things. After all, it is STILL a mechanical machine and machines DO make noises and vibrations.

Perhaps we feel these relatively minor sensations now because so much of the road noise and harshness that we experienced in older , less refined vehciles is now gone, allowing those things to come through?

I just dont understand how people buy a PICKUP TRUCK and then expect it to be as smooth and perfect as a Rolls Royce.

I am not saying you cant dislike a particular sound or sensation, but saying it is a major fault????
Ok, I am wearing my flamesuit.
What he is describing is not normal. I had it on my 06 and when I drove another exact same vehicle, it was not there. I could never figure out what caused it. When you step on the gas, it should be smooth especially considering that these are fly by wire pedals. The feeling he is describing is as if the pivoting point on the pedal has a rasp in it. It's hard to describe. Kinda like the cell phone vibrates on your foot as you depress the pedal. I had a Mercedes 500 that did that and the dealer found a problem with the ignition system...it went away after that. Not sure what causes it with our turkcs. Knock on wood my new truck doesn't do it.

I noticed the same thing on the trip we just got back from. I'm wondering if it has something to do with feedback they put in the system to compensate for it being "drive by wire." My Challenger doesn't do it but it's a stick so maybe it's just something with the automatic transmission in the trucks.

I have this also on my 2012. It's strange that you can feel it in the gas pedal as it is a fly by wire unit I think.

I don't think I have that problem. I know it chugs a bit ( not sure if that's a great description) when it goes into econo mode, but I don't remember feeling it in the pedal at all.

I remember reading this thread a while back.....

Just got back from a long trip a couple weeks back and then a day trip yesterday......no "tingle" here.

Its drive by wire, so its not anything to do with the accelerator pedal or its operation.

Its some sort of (likely normal) vibration that the pedal is enabling to be transmitted to your foot. the rest of your interface with the truck is cushioned by carpet, leather, vinyl etc etc.

Some may just be more sensitive to it than others.

I wouldnt worry about it.

Or, worry about it and take it to the dealer.

All they will do is a) see if they can find anything vibrating more than it should (likely they wont) or b) replace the accelerator assembly if they are a "throw parts at it" type of shop or c) try and isolate the pedal assembly with rubber or something.

I guess that I'm in the minority. Mine is smooth as can be, never had any unexpected buzzes, rattles, or vibrations. Hell I don't even get the HEMI tick...

But then again, anyone who's ever driven through Louisiana and knows the condition of the roads would understand that bumps, rattles, and "cher chunks" are a normal part of every day driving.

good luck to those who're having issues
