2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)

Review

I had a check engine the 2nd. week of purchase; and they haven't quit. I am now waiting for a new and improved turbo, jacob brake,what ever you call it, burned up the first one. Old turbo had been cleaned and reassembled, reset light, and regenerated, to only come back on again! I wish that I had my 05 5.9 back! I was told to drive with turbo on always until the new one comes in. I am pissed off about all of the trips to dealer. I was suckered into buying the "free" 3000 mile oil changes. Not anymore! They can shove their oil changes! Some mech. wallowed my cooling fins flat and to top it off I was 2(two)quarts over the full line! I am investigating the Lemon laws in Oregon.

Favorite Features

Can't put a lot of mileage on a truck in the shop. Turbo on in town jerks to oldies music. Paint color is all that I have as a favorite.

Suggested Improvements

Give me my 05 5.9 Quad back and credit the payments I have been making on this junk. I don't dare wander too far away from a dealer, ie, go on vacation or over 20 miles from home.
