1800 miles.

Looks like I should select the "lots of problems" box above!

Edit: I should have mentioned my Ram was held at the factory for about 2 weeks in "100% Inspection Status"!
Update:
New radio installed. Good so far (fingers crossed!).
Oil leak fixed.
All loose bolts tightened. Engine mounts and front suspension bolts checked.

Engine still sending vibrations through steering wheel, gas pedal, and floor pan when in the 1800 - 2200 RPM range. Peaks at about 2000 RPMs. If anyone has had this problem and had it repaired, please let me know how it was fixed. Note this is totally independent of vehicle speed and is solely RPM based.

Dirt is in the paint, you have to look very close to see it, can't understand how dirt gets on the truck while they are painting it at the factory.

Fender Flares are peeling off.

Have a whistling sound when the ac or heater fan is off. I'm happy with the truck, but when you only have 1000 miles it makes me wonder.

OMG I have loads of problems with mine…….where to start??

1) I’m late everywhere I go because people with trucks want to talk to me about my truck

2) I get home from work late every night because I take the long way rather than the short way, just to spend more time in it.

3) Nose bleeds from sitting so much higher in traffic than most other vehicles.

4) Having to deal with the nasty looks of tired people on the buses when I pull up beside them and I’m all comfortable looking

5) Using the heated steering wheel function and eating my ice cream cone, causes my ice cream to melt a little too quickly

6) People want me to come by and visit them daily, oddly once there they have something that needs to be moved

7) I hate the fact that I can see people handling my food when I go through the drive –through, rather than just wondering what they are doing with my food

8) Having t o park far away from the mall doors, because I don’t want some dumb as to park to close to it…….or rip off my front bumper like it has happened to other members

9) Having to be the designated driver because my truck holds more people than my convertible does

10) I hate the fact that I enjoy driving the truck more than I do my convertible, and may have to sell my convertible to get another truck

Oh and there are a few tiny problems too, Uconnect isn’t the best especially when working with an iPhone, I do seem to have an alignment problem that can’t be solved, and my backup camera sucks at night………oh and I forgot about my jack not being able to be unscrewed from under the seat.

But ya, items 1 – 10 are a huge PAIN IN THE A$$

Wouldn't even call my issues problems through 18K miles...rear sliding window wouldn't close one day, but since has worked flawlessly, and XM seems to drop more than I'm used to.

This is my 4th Ram, including 2 2500 Cummins rigs, and by far it's the best.

6 days into new 1500 3.6 with 8 speed tranny, second day was rolling when in drive or reverse on a slight incline as if it was in neutral, then started clunking when coming to a stop, got pretty bad, dealer reset computer, hasn't rolled yet but clunking is slowing getting worse again, otherwise truck is good, so far!

I had only 1 problem with my '12 Hemi, it was very hard to keep my foot of the gas and that reflected really well at the pump. Besides that, best car I have ever had. Oh, baby, I miss you so much! We will be together once again, soon, very soon......

No problems yet. But had quite a few with my 2011 but they did fix them.....sort of. My only issue is trying to keep my finger off the air suspension buttons on the Longhorn. People seem to stare at me at the stop lights when I keep raising it and lowering it

I have had mine for a month, only a thousand miles on her and have no issues but for the money I would expect not to have any issues.

Just had my first problem yesterday. Went to move my truck, put the key in the ignition and nothing. Went WTF, took the key out and hit the lock/unlock, put the key back it and it started right up. Hope that was just a one off thing.
