there is no place to put my spare sunglasses the cab of that truck is huge the overhead console is also huge yet there is no compartment for anything. I traded off a 2010 tundra (nice truck poop mpg) it had compartments everywhere enough room even for all my wifes junk and 20 packages of clean x . but the dodge which i love has no sunglass holder dang it

I agree about the hassle of putting on car seats. In a crew cab its almost impossible to hook up the upper mounts. The damned wiper blades SUCK! $40k and we get shitty wiper blades? Come on! The oil filter location sucks too. Drains right onto the rack boot on the passenger side. Other than that, I love my truck. Just turned 1 year old last month.

Well I have noticed slot of chips in the paint(rugged brown pearl). I do not like the noise the housing around the steering colum makes when u use your turn signal. The passenger seat belt buckle makes noise if not turned in the right position and the materials around cup holders, that flat black material is very cheap. The last thing is the slosh in the gas tank that occurs when u have about 3/4 of a tank , when u bring the truck to a dead stop about a second after your stopped u feel like somebody is hitting u from the back or the trans is downshifting late the dealership told me because of the type of gas tank that I have it's the slosh effect because dodge took the baffles out of the tank for 2010.

That's a good one! I forgot about adding that one to my list. I couldn't have come up with a worse placement for an oil filter if it was my job to do so. WTF

Yes sir that "thump" at stoplights with anything but a full tank on mine too. My last truck, with the long range fuel tank, {H3 SUT} did the same thing. Learned from it so knew instantly what it was on this one. And the passenger seat belt rattle is a little annoying too. Neither a big deal. Truck 1 1/2 year old and holding up pretty well for what it cost.

I like to save gasoline whenever possible. On downhill grades, My Ram seems to experience engine/trans hold back even though I have set the + at max.
My old Silverado dropped into O/D immediately and accelerated rapidly on the downhill almost as if freewheeling. I've noticed an approximate 5 plus decrease in gas mileage between my new truck and the Silverado though similiarly equipped. Some holdback is great on long steep mountain downhill grades, but for everyday driving I'd rather have the better gas mileage.

yeah I've noticed it on mine too. when I let off the accelerator to coast it reacts almost like I have a manual trans.

Yeah I believe it is a good thing though as if you ever tow it will really help you out. I think the harder you brake the quicker (higher rpm) it downshifts as well to help you slow down. It would be nice to sort of have a on off button for this so if you didn't want it on (coasting down a hill) you could turn it off, but when you have a load you could leave it on...

seeing as how i just recently got mine, i cant find anything i dont like about it...other than the lack of high income to buy all the fun things i want for it. i know it wasnt gonna be spectacular on gas, but my 71 mustang i used to have wasnt really either.
