Purchased used June 2010, 34K miles, now have 68K. Con's: Have heard clicking/grinding noise under pedals when traction breaks. I suspect universal to transfer case, but dealer will verify. Other issue is the Uconnect / radio, cuts out, pops, this too will be dealt with at dealer. No cabin air filter for these trucks, guess that was a cost savings from manufacturer, I installed my own in 15 min. at a cost of $28.00 great investment. Glad I purchased the warranty. Pro's: Drove on vacation, I always use cruise, 19 MPG avg for trip of 2600 miles.
ECO boost saves on fuel. I do see where others have complained of this feature, however I have not had the same problems. Yes it does rumble / growl some but not to the point of annoyance.
Cruise control should be on steering wheel, not on separate column stick. Storage under rear seat should be boxed in contour, not slopped, this restricts use.
This is my husband's truck but since I have driven it on numerous occasions, I thought I would write a review.
First of all, I am a petite woman (5ft) and this big truck is moderately comfortable for my small stature.
My husband is over 6ft tall and it suites him just fine, as well.
The truck is an animal in the snow with great traction control and handling.
We have 4 wheel drive and hemi option.
The mileage is great for a big truck with a big engine.
We average about 20mpg and the eco mode urges economical driving habits.
Love the dark green color we have.
Interior is stylish with silver accents
Power of the Hemi engine
We've had the truck for about 10 months.
The rear seats are very straight, typical of crew cabs. Not a lot of leg room in the rear as well.
I bought my truck used, with about 20k miles, I have driven it around 4 k with absolutely NO problems.
Driving the speed limit on the highway, using cruise, very little hard acceleration or braking, I am getting around 23 mpg.
I have owned 4 Dodges and several Fords and Chevys, and so far, this is the best.
I would recommend it to anyone.
I bought a 2011 used Ram 1500 Quad (SLT). I've had it 8 weeks now, so I'm still in the "honeymoon stage". That said; so far it's a great truck. The ride is exceptional in the front seats. The rear seat is cramped (it's a quad not a crew). The quad has more bed length. I have the 4.7, not the Hemi (5.7). On the highway, I get 22mph. With easy city driving, I'm avg. 17 (with the AC off). It has a quiet, smooth ride. The quality apppears to be there inside and out. I have not towed with it yet.
Quiet comfortable ride. Great gas mileage for a full size truck. The SLT has the chrome package.
The towing light connections are built into the bumpter, but not a quality hitch. I had that added by Dodge for $350. It should come with a quality hitch.
If you don't mind a "growly" engine and a vibration in the undercarriage in the "constantly seeking eco mode"..this is your truck. If you don't mind poor sight lines over the fenders, this is your truck..if you don't mind poor gas mileage, ( and, I'm talking 11mpg pure city and 16mpg max on long trips), this is your truck. If you don't mind poor paint quality, and poor customer service at the dealership, this is your truck. Never mind the deal you're going to get....it will cost you dearly when you go to sell it a few months later, when you don't enjoy even driving it anymore.
Improve paint quality, be honest about gas mileage...it guzzles. Drop the 8/4 engine technology until it matches General Motors seemless engine performance. Where is bluetooth? That's just wrong.
