28K, no issues with the engine at all. ( I did install a catch can and K&N air filter. )

I think the Hemi is the best thing about the truck.

There was a bulletin about the tie rod ends making a knocking noise. I inquired with the dealer about it. They did a VIN check and said it didn't apply to my truck. They did replace them after I told them to check them. Two alignments later and my steering wheel was straight. I may have another one on it's way out. I rotated my tires after work the other day and felt some play out of the left outer tie rod. Guess I'll wait until it gets a little worse before I set an appointment.

Loved my truck until a month ago; 33K miles, 2nd set of tires (actually had to do new ones 5K miles ago), a knocking in the rear end after I come to a complete stop (can feel it under my brake but the mechanic says he cant feel it but my gf and dad did instantly), and best of all I'm having my 3rd torque converter installed on Monday. All I pull is a 6K lb (fully loaded) toy hauler.

Its too bad cause I loved the truck, the look, and the interior but... well, I'll have some thinking to do depending on how the 3rd converter works out.

But I'm sure your truck wont have any problems like the lucky ones who have posted above.

Cheers!

great truck but do have problems with mine. ok i have 2010 TRX4 5.7l hemi i have a fairly loud squeal that is constant at all speed/rpm heard best at idle obviously. its not belt or tensioner it is a diff sound. dealership has not even figured it out nor did they have a clue. does anyone have same issue or prob?


i have also had problems with belt squeal tensioner and idler both replaced as well as belt usually goes away when engine warms up unless i hit about 3000 rpms then it is heard again my guess is water pump?

Front axle seals (passenger more so than the drivers side)n the third set on mine.
Front cv joints (cracked boots)
Tie rod ends (recall on that)
I know several people that lost their drive shaft. (that one hasn't happened to me yet)
I still love this truck though.

Bought mine with 18K in feb 2012 and now have 31K on it. It had a weeping passenger side axle seal as well and warranty covered it. I noticed the driver mirror defrost doesn't work too good but will get it in another day before warranty is up in October.
No other issues so far.
Been good so far, I love it.
Mine sees 30 miles of bad washboard gravel roads 4-5 days a week so it gets a work out chassis wise. Just installed a ranch hand summit front replacement bumper along with a top gun customz 2.5 leveling kit to deflect the large amount of ditch rats "Deer" we have around here.

Drove mine from St. John's NFLD to Fl then across to CA up to BC Canada then to Calgary AB back down across the states to Maine back home left house with 19,000k's got back 42,000k's. Great trip no problems with the truck oil changes suck every 4000k's and speed limits are to low. Try the K&N coldair it makes a big different over stock air or something like it. Note I was a GMC man for 25 years and GMC can not even compare with the fun and power of the Hemi

Bought my 2010 with 50k miles a little over a year ago and have since ran it up to 65k miles. Only thing I had done was had the dealership fix a broken exhaust manifold stud. Under warranty of course.
