I have only had mine for 3 months, but so far everything is great. I love driving it and get lots of compliments on it every time I go somewhere.

I've had little issues but overall I think it is a GREAT truck. Find me one that is perfect and I'll dump the Ram and buy it. Good luck with that.

I have the rear view mirror issue, while I wish I didn't have it it's nothing major and I'll talk to the service guy about it. Over all I love my Ram and wouldn't trade it for any other model

I have some miinor paint and exterior trim issues and I'm not 100% thrilled with the whole new uconnect setup but I'll keep my fingers crossed for software updates. The MFT system in the new Fords is even worse though, lived with that mess for 6 months.

It would seem like the '13s have all kinds of problems if you read this '13 specific forum, but the paint/trim complaints, electrical/radio/nav complaints, MDS/kickdown complaints, torque converter noise/vibration issues, front end shaking in 4wd issues, the infamous hemi tick and quite a few others have been around since 2009. After a few more miles on the 13s and the tire wear and suspension noise complaints will start rolling in.

But at least they did make sure the rear diff is filled with fluid and they fixed the wrinkly cooled leather bucket seat material from the older ones

I have not had one issue in 8200 kms. 8spd and the hemi have worked flawlessly. No issues with the 8.4an at all. My gas mileage has averaged 19.6 mpg per cdn gallon hand calculated. Unloaded I average 22.5mpg. Traded my 2007 Cummins Laramie 4x4 and am very happy that I did.

1k miles and I'm happy as a clam with my 2013 Sport....my old 2011 Sport...not so much. Every car/truck has it's issues, especially when new technology is being introduced and the kinks are getting worked out. The only safe way to avoid some of the hiccups with the newer tech is to wait 2 years to buy a new one. Everyone wants the cutting edge stuff but doesn't want the risk associated with trying it out. Just like the other years they introduce something new, there will be fixes coming shortly (example: There were radio issues in early 2011 as well and those are now almost non-existent with the newer software flashes). Is it annoying when it happens to your vehicle? hell yeah, but it is unavoidable in a small % of trucks.

I drove the F150 (5.0 and 6.2), the 2014 Sierra, Tundra, etc... and nothing compared to the RAM. Even after a bad 2011 experience, I went back because I thought the RAM's were that much better than any other options right now. All the other brand's boards are lit up with issues as well. A certain % of trucks off the line are going to have issues no matter what brand it is. Those % of people that own those trucks come to the internet for help and to vent (as do I). It just makes it seem like an extraordinary amount of crappy product is coming out, but I'm guessing it's a very small fraction of the total produced.

I'm a happy RAM owner despite a few radio glitches (and what I consider an intrusive MDS system that doesn't add much benefit) and don't regret my $40k purchase at all.
