Hello folks, newbie here and this is my first post. I just picked up a Ram 1500 Big Horn. Have had it for an entire 6 weeks now, LOL! And almost 1000 miles. Nothing major to speak of BUT these are the issues I have noticed so far:
1) Those front seat headrests are the worst. Not sure how many of you feel the same way but I had to switch the rear headrests to the front. They pretty much made the truck un-drivable from discomfort. Have spoke to dodge about this but only solution I have been given is to buy a new pair of rears for the front ($300 for the pair).
2) The Uconnect voice commands is all but useless. This describes the issue perfect:

I do love this truck. With the rear headrests in the front comfort can not be beaten, for a truck. I do notice the tranny will wind pretty high in second gear, when driving normal not WOT, but I don't think that is an issue. Another thing I have noticed is that sometimes I get a Rear End Clunk. Had that same issue with my '93 Dakota. After a while it ended up being the rear gear box and it blew out, that's how I discovered what it was. With the lifetime warrantee I will not worry so much about it but will bring it up to the dealer. Other than that I can't say much bad about this new 2012 RAM 1500. I am a little disappointed with the HEMI. Just thought it would be more responsive and not so sluggish off the line. I know, CAI, Cat Back and the Diablo Chip... On the list folks. Is there something I missed as far as modifications? Saw some headers out there too, would those void my warrantee? Do not want to void my (lifetime) warrantee so I need to keep it "Mopar Legal", so to speak. Any input on these issues and upgades would be helpful. Thanks all, nice to be a member here...
