Default 2013 Issues popping up at just over 1k miles...

been in 3 times now for inop and lockup issues with the 8.4 screen setup.

Now the bluetooth is on and off saying nothing is paired half the time.

At highway cruise control every bump makes my tachometer jump around

Noticing a "clunk" in the front end over moderate bumps.



This is my first MOPAR and I LOVE the truck but the quality stuff I read about and dismissed with hopeful abandon is seemingly biting me in the ass here.

Depending on how serious the issue is you may fall into the Lemon Law. Rams really are amazing trucks, but that can't be perfect and turn out every single truck with no issues whatsoever. You may have just gotten a lemon

My 2013 1500 developed a "clunk" in the driver's side suspension area also...it disappeared after a panic brake application to avoid an idiot driver!

Sorry to hear about your problems, I've had three Ram's and have been very happy with all three (well this one I've only had a short time).

I am not overly upset yet just a bit disappointed that this kind of stuff slips through their QC. There is no reason for the tach issue that is fairly noticeable if your on the cruise at all.

MY dealer damn near screwed the pooch on it today but my original salesman came through HUGE for me.

They got their in house hertz down the street to pick me up and get me into a Jeep liberty.....

This car was BEYOND filthy inside and it was running 2 bald tires one with a freakin plug that was TALLER than any of the wear bar marked tread.

I called them out on it and they said it was all they had....I didnt just spend over 30k to be driving someones dirty lot beater shitbox. And im sure as heck not putting my 2 kids into a vehicle with bald tires running on temporary rubber insert plugs.

My salesman gave me HIS PERSONAL brand new 13 till I get my truck back since ive been there so many times and he feels bad.

He is former Military and my wife is Currently active duty and im former DOD so I think he has a soft spot for us.

Regardless this is 100% how you take an uncomfortable situation and show what kind of business mettle you have.

Thanks. FWIW, I have had good luck with Boerne Dodge (where I bought my truck), and my dad has had good luck with the service dept. at Ancira (he bought his at the now defunct Fiesta Dodge).

I've only had a couple minor issues when I had my 11, Ancira is whom I took it too and am pleased with their service.
