Default Torque Converter problems gone for 2013?

Just wondering if the torque converter issues have been resolved for 2013?? Im pulling the trigger and trading my 2011 sport for a 2013 sport for a couple different reasons and this is one of them. Any input would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Not sure what the torque converter problems were for the 2011, but I have noticed a very faint whirling noise when I'm at a steady cruise around 25-35mph. Not a big deal for me at all. In fact, I hardly even notice it anymore unless I'm really trying to listen for it. But when brand spanking new, I did notice it was there!

My understanding was that 2012+ Rams got a new torque converter.

Thanks for the info guys. My 2011 makes an awful noise from the converter, towing or not and the dealer wont come good and change it. Trading up to a 2013 sport with 3.92 rearend hoping its much better!!
