We have had nothing but trouble from our Ram 2500. Bought new in 2009. At 15k miles, the DPF clogged and backed up into/burned up the turbo. 8 months later Dodge did a recall. Apparently, the computer doesn't tell the DPF to regenerate. At 27k miles, the water pump leaked (spewed may be a better word) and the head gasket blew before we could get it to a safe place to pull over. The engine brake doesn't work all the time. The truck has spent 2 and a half of the 15 months we've had it, in the shop!
Love the interior roominess. Acceleration is great. Would love this truck if it were reliable.
Dodge needs to just recall the entire DPF/exhaust system. Go back the 5.9L Cummins without all the emissions *improvements*!
