Default Ram in bottom 5

Nationwide survey of owners by consulting firm J.D. Powers shows owners of 2009 model year..problems of stalling , tranny issues, peeling paint, & electrical glitches. Top complaint was excessive wind noise! The worst performers were Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM, & Jaguar. Chrysler owners reported 192 problems per 100 vehicles.
The headlines read "Widespread improvements seen in auto reliability survey"

I say BULLS&@T! My Ram in 4 months & 4,000 miles old and I did not have one issue.
Hopefully, they got their act together!
PS....this is my first Chrysler I ever owned.....my fingers are crossed!!!

my 2003 hd was rated by all as poor, so was my 2004.5 ,rated poor in all catagories. and now my 2011 150 is rated at the bottom. other than ball joints, all my dodges have been better than all the competition.

Um... my 2010 model went into the shop 24 times in the first 4 months. I made the dealer take it back under the lemon law and got a 2011 Sport. It has been in the shop 3 times (other than oil changes) in the first year (including having the transfer case replaced). I would agree with the numbers on that report.

PS. Don't forget the fact that ipods, iphones and bluetooth devices didn't working correctly with any Chrysler radios for almost a year.

Almost 60,000 miles on my 2010 and no real problems . This is either the most reliable or second most reliable vehicle I've had (my 1997 s10 was great).

Well I must post here. Coming up on 2 years and 23,000 kilometers. Not a single mechanical problem, ride is smooth and comfortable. Power is awesome. Interior, best I've seen in a truck (even a car IMHO) So I agree and say BULLS&@T!

39,500 miles on my 2010. I have had no issues at all. 80 mile round trip on crappy roads 5 days a week. I take very good care of my truck, no abuse. This is my first Dodge and I think they build an excellent truck. I would definately buy another one. That's coming from a guy who has owned Chevy trucks for over 20 years.

I love my 2010 Ram. It's like a big V8 luxury car when you want it to be, except it
is BIGGER than big. And yet it is fashionable because it has a utility purpose so
you're not showing off so blatently when you buy it and drive it. I could not be happier.
