2013 Ram 1500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (3.6L 6cyl 8A)


I bought a brand new 2013 RAM 1500 and must admit that it was my first brand new purchase for a vehicle. I got a couple blocks away from the dealership when all of a sudden steam and smoke started pouring out from under the hood. I looked down at the temp guage and it was slightly below the red mark. I pulled over and popped the hood and found a rad hose not attached to engine. I called the dealership who sent a tech out to meet me (later found out that the hose is given a plastic peice at the factory to assit in assembly and it was never removed causing the hose to fall off under pressure). I spoke with the dealership and Chrysler Canada and was told too bad basically, your stuck with it.

Best Features

Ipod control, seats, overall look of truck and MPG.

Worst Features

After more research I have learnt that there is a lot of people complaining of problems that seem to stem from poor quality at the manufacturing level. Everything from paint imperfections to my scenario, a lot of problems with the big screen radio units causing truck malfunctions.
