Default 2010 Dodge Ram Problem

Hellow everyone. I am posting my problem on here to see if anyone else has experienced this same issue. About two weeks after I bought my 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT it starting having an issue. The problem is about 1 to 2 seconds after the truck comes to a complete stop something underneath towards the rear of the truck bumps so hard that you feel it through the seats in your back. It also does this in reverse now more than ever. I have taken it back to Hunter Dodge in Lancaster CA twice. They said they did a recall and a quicklearn the first time and that fixed it. After that the problem was still there but not as much. The second time I brought it back they said they couldn't repeat the problem and told me I was just going to have to deal with the issue. Any thoughts???

Nope. Just checked and the spare tire is secured.

It is probably some type of misbehavior in the 545RFE transmission. We have the same transmission in our 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee (with HEMI) and there are a few times I've had that same exact experience. Usually when I'm coming off the interstate and hitting the stoplight at the ramp is when it has happened. I have no idea why it happens or how to fix it.

My '09 does the same thing, but, it is hardly noticeable.

I roll up to a STOP, gently pushing the brake pedal to stop at the Stop bar, the Ram stops rolling & then a second later i feel a very slight bump, it feels like the rear brakes had hung up & finally grabbed.
If i then release the brake pedal & let it roll say 2 feet & push in the pedal again, it sometimes does it a second time.
by the way, i hardly ever brake hard, except when someone or something causes me to

lol, Your going to think this is funny but I bet its your compartment cover behind the driver seat. You probably don't have it snapped down and have the seat up.

Mine was doing it yesterday and scared the crap out of me at a red light

Big Blue and GT,

Did you take your vehicle in to be repaired? I took mine in and the mechanic and service manager noticed it and said it was not supposed to be doing that. I have contacted Dodge headquarters and filed the vehicle complaint as requested by my local dealer. I have never had a bran new vehicle have any problems. I love my truck but this problem is making me question the quality of Dodge Trucks. One more question I have for everyone is gas mileage. I have the 32 gallon tank and I get exactly 400 miles to every tank before it is within 25 DTE. Does that seem right??

i believe when mine was under 2000 miles, it did the same thing. as i put more mileage on it I noticed that if i pulled off the highway & had been using cruise control, filled the tank & pulled right back onto the highway to continue my trip using cruise control again. sometimes i would see as much as 500 miles until empty on the dash readout. its just an approximate, you will notice that in hilly areas that it will drop & on the flats it may even climb. I just sort of go by it, if it reads 100 miles until empty, i pull into the closest station

I also have the larger tank & another 30 gallon auxiliary tank, I drive a lot, 600 - 800 miles some days

The same thing is happening to mine, I think there is another thread on here with someone saying it's a bad torque converter? I'm going to let my service department know about it when I take it in to have my lift installed.
