Most people here love their Ram's. I'm on my 4th one. My 2011 has 15K on it, the 4.7L so I don't have the MDS cycling engine noise. I could have got a new Ram Hemi, but with 2 Hemi Challengers in the garage a third was serious Hemi overkill. Good Luck getting your issues handled, it's got to be rough to have issues with a new truck, could have been and brand however.

Default Quality issues

Hey there capt.chubbzz! I would not recommend any chrysler product either until they get their quality control (in control) & their customer service to perform a service! I too encountered problems w/ my 2012 ram... I have paint issues, I had a piece of the plastic on the center console not color match any of the rest of it, my passenger side headlight / fender fitment is a bit off compared to the drivers side. I had a dent on my drivers side door & scratches in the door jams down to bare metal. I too hear a squeaking noise from either the passenger seat or drivers seat. I have squibs all over the place & I recently noticed the bed seems have some gaps on the inside that I read about elsewhere on this forum. All we have is a classic case of chrysler sympathizers! I was a GM sympathizer so I say this w/ respect. This is my first chrysler product & it may be my last. I have always owned chevy & never have I had paint issues or other previously mentioned issues w/ them. I fell in love with the rams style , ride quality, hp & interior. That said there's absolutely no excuse for the quality issues were all having & the lack of customer service by both the dealership & chrysler... No Excuses!!! I hate the whole monday routine. This is why people cry out for a foreign product. Well I hate that too! No more excuses & no foreign purchases! Buy american (ford,chevy) or ram but if these companies run into any more financial troubles oh well, let them sink. No more bail outs & break up the unions so people can't get drunk & high on their lunch hour then go back to building what should be a symbol of american pride & not something to be ridiculed about... USA! Stand behind your product! Build it right, Build it without defects & Build it American!!!

Well you can buy Toyota TRD all you want, made in Japan, not hardly
They are made in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico (TMMBC)
I have watched semi truck loads crossing the border, maybe 10 semi transports an hour, they cross at the Otay Mesa Border Crossing

Nissan is building a plant down there too

Thank You NAFTA for taking US jobs

sorry cap, but as said you do have recourse to correct this. for the record my last 3 rams have been great. 12 wrangler is perfect, 04 limited grand cherokee pushing 160000 miles has only needed a power streering unit and alt.

I know it has to suck what you're going through. Maybe I got lucky because I've already put 7500 miles on mine and it drives just as tight as it did on mile 10. I live on a pretty rough dirt road and I never hear any rattles or squeaks or anything. My Charger is the same and it has 56k on it. The point is I don't think the quality issues are too wide spread (at least I hope not). Anyway good luck to you.

Just because you got a bad one, which is unfortunate for you please don't go and diss the entire line. I have had my RAM for over two years with 25,000 on it now and it is just as tight as the day I brought it home. The fit and finish is outstanding, the ride is amazing and I have not had a single issue with it. Oh and no strange noises. By far the best vehicle I have ever owned, and I've owned alot over the years. Ford, Chevy, Toyota and of course several Chrysler products. Would I buy another RAM, yes in a heartbeat. Just my 2 cents.

In my case I cant go the Lemon Law route with my paint issues. I have been in contact with Customer Care and even met with a Rep and they will not paint the entire truck. Now, Im in a holding pattern on what to do next. My 2500 only has 2k miles on it, and Dont wanna take a 3k hit if I decide to trade it in. And the Rep wasnt the nicest guy either.

So, I feel your pain, because every time I look at my truck it makes me sick that they would let a paint job like mine get into a customers hands. It sucks and I dont know what to do next.

I absolutely love my 2012 Ram and think its a great truck. I traded a 2009 Escalade in for it and don't regret it one bit.

I'm at 3500 miles on mine and no issues at all. There is one tiger stripe in the paint that I've noticed but you have to really be looking for it to see it.

I pull this bad boy around twice a month and the hemi just laughs at it
