My 2014 that I picked up in Nov now has 5,000 Km on it. It STINKS !!!!!!!! I took it to the dealer as it has radio problems and now it stinks so bad I get an aftertaste from driving it. They gave me a rental 2014 Ram and I didn't even make it home and it STINKS worse. I took that back also. The biggest joke is that Chrysler knows all about this problem but continue to sell to unsuspecting customers without a word. I don't get any straight answers just smoke and mirrors BS.

I don't yet blame the dealership, they at least gave me another truck to drive.

If I don't have a resolution soon I will be asking for a buy back from Chrysler.

I had to have a buy back done on 2013 for not having the proper 392 rear end....what a long wait...Now I have a Stink truck...BS and Smoke up our a#@ is exactly right and they say they are not doing a buy back but going to move me to the next level LOL More smoke and BS with two calls per week rather than 1 with no Action...I may move my next level to long wait with Attorney for a FREE NON STINK TRUCK!!!

I called Chrysler Customer Care today as advised to do so by my dealership. They pretended they have NEVER heard of this and that they will move my complaint right up the ladder ASAP. Thats funny since this blog started in MAY !! and there is still no fix.

My dealership has been cooperative and understanding to this point, I would either like it fixed 100% or returned.

Lots of posts I have read this far have been of the same complaint and a few advised that they would again post with the results once their truck had been fixed. I haven't seen any posts confirming a fix yet. Can anyone share?

Default This just Stinks!

I have my 2013 back from the dealership. I left it there for 11 days while they waited for the hoses to come in. They did the double flush and replaced the hoses. So far the smell has not come back but I think that it is too soon to tell as I have not had it back that long or put that many miles on it. I will keep the forum posted.
