I have 7500 trouble free miles so far. I get compliments all the time especially right after I wash and wax it. I really love the interior after I did the katskinz upgrade in all black. Only time mine has been back to dealer so far is free oil change.. I better go knock on wood lol.

My 3rd Ram, 2013 has approx. 1,700 miles. Nothing major except some original electronic issues due, I believe, to the battery not being up to full charge after transporter and lot time. Since I brought it up to snuff no more gremlins. Fit and finish is probably 8 out of 10. A few paint runs and sand "nubs" but not too bad. Mileage on the 1500 4x4 with hemi, 6spd and 3.92 ratio on the first road trip of 750 miles after 1st oil and filter change was just a shade over 18 mpg. Mostly freeway driving between 65 and 75.

first time Ram owner, been buying GM trucks for 15 years. 2 1/2 months and 2500 miles on the Sport with no problems, nothing i dont like about it.
was really disappointed in the new 14 GM's. after a test drive of the RAM, i was sold.

Oh, there is another thing. Checking the oil level is a bit of a challenge. Bottom line, with air suspension, set it on "normal driving mode", not entry/exit. And read the dipstick on the side opposite the cross-hatched "safe" side. Reason, with the high viscosity oils the two "crinks" in the stick do a great job of pulling the oil up on the stick and giving an overfull reading. If you look on the opposite side you can easily see where the two holes are that mark the upper and lower "safe" levels and will give a more accurate reading.

Chrysler put those "crinks" in the dipstick presumably to keep the stick in an optimal position as it goes down the tube. It does have unintended consequences, at least from my perspective.
