So I've had my new Ram for 1 month today. I've noticed 1 problem with it.
Going up hills. I can't seem to keep my speed. If the speed limit is 55 I constantly find myself going 60,65,70,75 without even noticing. Is it only me? Is it the way I drive.


Not really a problem. Just admiring the pure power of the hemi.

Might want to get the calibration on your right ankle and foot checked.

All i have to say is it is a common side effect off owning a HEMI! your right foot tends to gain the mass of lead symptoms should start to subside never!

until you get used to the fact that your right foot has more mass than you're used to, I recommend the frequent use of cruise control, especially when Johnny Law is likely to be present.

It's a sickness that only cruise control can cure! These HEMIs are great.

It's common. I got up to 80 on a test drive before buying and would never have known if it weren't for the speedometer.
