Buyer beware!!!!! We added this vehicle to our fleet in March 2018, new and today 8/15/18, we find out it needs a new engine!!! We are a cargo expediting company so needless to say we put a lot of miles on the vehicle in a short time, however engine blown!!!!!

Review

I own several of these. Very functional vehicle but I would never buy one again. These things have a great design for use, more storage, front wheel drive, better gas mileage, but break down all the time. The worst part is I purchased the 5yr/200k warranty on all of them (9) thinking this would take care of it, however, most dealerships give very little help and sit for days before they can even get looked at. Each dealer has one guy that works on these, maybe two if it is a big dealer. Radiator hose is a 3 day wait. This is a business killer if you have to depend on the vehicle to make money. They eat headlights like crazy, Ram knows there is a problem but does nothing. 2018 big fix was to no longer have daytime running lights and put manual light switch back in. Do yourself a huge favor and get something else. Crazy misdiagnosis repairs all the time. My current problem is a 2018 with 1511 miles, yes just over a 1500 miles. ABS/ECM /service engine lights and power loss. Dealer says.................................It will be a few days before we can look at it. Never again Ram!
