Default 1000 mile update..

2013 Ram Express Reg. Cab, Mineral Grey, 2wd

I bought the truck on May 6th, which I caught hell from the wife, that's her birthday..LOL!!! I did buy her a spoiler for her car though. Anyhow, absolutely LOVE this truck! The only thing I've done so far is removed the 'Ram 1500' badges, looks so much cleaner. Going to put my Magnaflow 18" muffler on Monday.
I've had zero problems, knock on wood. I have the 3.55 gear and averaging 15.8 mpg with that being 90% city driving, and some hard take offs .
I have noticed the adaptive learning from the computer. For the first 500 to 600 miles just sort of babied it around. The truck would feel kinda of sluggish when you gave it some gas. I started driving it more aggressive over the last 400 miles and now when you step on the gas it just goes, not hesitation whatsoever.

100% satisfied!!

Glad to hear! I bought mine in early March and am approaching 1,000 miles now. The truck still seems to get better every week as things break in more and she learns my style.

What transmission do you have?
I have the 6 speed with the 3.55 but it has less that 200km's on it so far and it says I am getting 17.2 Litres per 100 km's, which isn't all that good, but I do know it will get better.

Glad to hear the sluggishness goes away too as I thought the same thing, but with such low clicks yet, I don't really want to push until I at least hit the 300 mile mark (500km's)

Love the truck so far as well, other than it not wanting to change gears quick enough between 2 and 3 or 3 and 4.

Wow I bought mine in May 26 with 23 miles on it and it now has 1680 miles on it.
Mine was a tad sluggish for the first 1000 miles too now it responsive and k gotta watch spinning the tires when turning from a stop.

I have the 6spd trans Irv.

Yeah the long wait on the downshift gets a little irritating.

Mine is on the up-shift, seems to take some extra to get it to fall into the proper gear.

Drove to work this morning and noticed it is getting better, the shifts aren't as harsh going into 3rd or 4th gear. (doesn't seem to rev as high just before it drops into gear)

I posted about it and it was suggested a couple times to take it to the dealer so that is likely what I am going to do as at the very least, I will have a record of it.

I just had my Magnaflow 18" put on Saturday. I know this has been beat to death in other threads but I have to say it again. This muffler is INCREDIBLE! I've heard a lot of exhaust tones in my life but this is unreal. The most perfect sound you can get. If you're on the fence about this muffler, get off NOW! you won't be disappointed. Just my 2 cents.
