This is pretty much the LAST place you'll find anyone to sympathize with you. I'll be honest with you and say that I find some of your claims hard to believe and some of your anger misplaced.

For starters, unless you have a copy of alignment measurements, you can't say for sure the truck is misaligned. A broken tire belt or excessive road crown can cause a pull like the one you describe. The wheel locks - guess what? Those are dealer installed options so blaming the manufacturer is just plain wrong.

BTW, if you have such a vendetta against Dodge, why keep buying their products?

I just bought a 2012 quad cab a few months ago and have not had any problems. My dealer even let me take it home to show the wife before I signed anything. It gave me a chance to feel how it ran on the highway and surface street.
I have never bought a car without test driving it and "kicking the tires".
Sorry you have a bad experience but telling people to not buy Chrysler products, Chrysler makes more than just Rams. Everyone I have talked to who have a Dodge, love their vehicles.

^^^^ Yep!

I had an Egoboost and what a piece of crap it was. Go to F150 forum and read the 200+ page thread on the shudder/miss problem. And the OP is upset because his hub caps are plastic

Your RAM may have been out of alignment from something that happened in transit or at the dealer. My F150 was aligned TWICE and STILL unevenly wore out a set of tires at 13K miles. That was good for about a grand. Add to that the shudder/miss problem, steering rack replacement, and pulling my tranny for repairs at 4K miles and 5 weeks for my $43K truck sitting in the shop. And you complain about things you should have caught yourself AND they can be fixed. Ford is still scratching their heads on the Egoboosts. Tell ya what OP, go over to that forum and hit one of those guys up. I'm sure one of them would be happy to make you a deal on their truck because they are tired of waiting on the lemon law. And should you ever have a problem with your Ford their customer service reps will courteously and cordially tell you to FO

This is the most ridiculous post I've read on this forum. Everything the OP said could've been avoid by simply LOOKING at the truck, and taking it on a spin around the block. Its not Dodges fault, IT'S YOURS!! For you to bash an entire company because of your "oversights" is just wrong.
First time Dodge owner here and I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!!!

Sounds to me like a case of buyers remorse, extremely uninformed buyer at that, you have owned 4 Rams and you are just figuring out now that the "chrome cladding" is plastic???? Not sure what your radio is with that particular package, but my 730 works fine with iPod, iPhone, iPad, cd's thumb drives etc, etc, etc Drove my dealer nuts researching my purchase, that's what informed consumers do, you know the old saying, "a fool and his money are soon parted" I suspect this isn't the first time for you either. Suck it up and learn to live with the choices you make, and quite trying to blame Chrysler Corp for your stupidity.

In addition to my new Ram, I owned a 2011 Jeep Wrangler and a 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible and I've been very happy with all three Chrysler Group, LLC products.
BTW, not everyone wants wheel locks because of lost key hassles. Maybe, that is why your dealer left you with the option of spending 5 minutes to install them.

Plastic cap on the rims??? Do you mean the the 2" or 2.5" center cap with the Ram logo on it?? That is the only plastic thing on the wheels!!!

I too have the 730N radio, ipod, iphone, importing mp3's etc works great.

Hey OP, are you related to Chris Mathews?

Posts like this disgust me, signed up just to shoot his mouth off never to be heard from again. I've got 33,000 Kim's on mine without a single issue and after two Winters no pitting on my chrome Clads. It's all about how you look after things. Geeeezzze
