Overall,a pretty good vehicle, however I'm not very pleased with warranty repair response from Dodge Dealerships. Experienced two rear axle seal problems on same axle within 51,000 miles, which ruined the rear brakes, and Dodge would not repair. One recall for fuel boost pump(rebuild) which later failed and no consideration given.

This is a great truck. I've had no problems with it and will definiltely buy another one. The 5.9 liter engine has plenty of power and torque. The truck takes weight excellent, and with 3000 pounds of weight it isn't even on the helper springs. I think it is more of a rugged work truck than the Fords and Chevys.

Had nothing major go wrong except for a pressure sensor on the transmission, which was simple to fix. Cummins turbo is awesome. Haven't met a challenge it could not handle. Outside stance and overall look is awesome. Sharper than any Ford or Chevy in town. Dependable starting in the winter time and good fuel economy in the summer time. All I want is a newer model!
Electronic cruise control is now offered for the Cummings turbodiesel models with a manual transmission, improved braking systems with standard ABS come on all 2500 and 3500 Rams, two new exterior colors debut, and child seat anchors are mounted on the rear of the cab. A high-output Cummings turbodiesel model, with a six-speed transmission, 245 horsepower and 505 ft-lbs. of torque, is offered in addition to a slightly improved 235-horsepower/460 ft-lbs. version, available with a manual or automatic tranny.
