#1

I have a 2008 Dodge 2500 Ram HD. I bought it new and before the warrenty went out some computer in the transmition went out. the truck would have no power and will not accelerate. They fixed but onec I got it back it started again on the way home. they fixed three times. Now I found out the the tie rods and stuff is cheap. One tie rod broke and they told me that they were installing a more stronger steering setup but I have to pay full price. There have been one after another problems with this truck and I have to drive over 100 miles to get a “FREE” fix. Now theres a clicking noise coming from under the vehical. What can I do?

You just don’t sound like a happy customer, and I don’t think you are ever going to be happy with this truck. Perhaps you should trade it in on a Ford or GMC 2500?

If you don’t trust it, fix everything and either sell it or trade it.

Yeah, my dad had a 2003 GMC serrea and that was a great truck. the dodge is supposed to be a heavy duty truck but it just keeps breaking down. I still need to pay thirty thousand dollars, so I can’t trade it in or sell it ( who want a heavy duty truck thats just not heavy duty).

You might be able to sell it for more than $30,000 if it’s a really high end truck with a diesel. What cab? What engine? What trim package? 2WD or 4WD? If you still owe $30,000 after paying on it for 2 years, it must have been a very expensive truck.

One more thing about the suspension: How were you driving it when the tie rods bent?


#7

Well it been on some rough dirt road, but we never abused it. The tie rod broke and we had to buy a new one, but not from dodge. They said they don’t sell them any more cause they brake and only sell thicker, more heavy duty upgrades"We had to go to a suspension shop". So we ask if this is a recall, and they said “no” we had to pay for the full upgrade our selves. The think is this is a heavy duty Ram Dodge and it feel like a piece of crap.


#8

Well its a quad cab 4 door, 5.7 hemi. Its a 4 wheel drive but it just seems like it was built for looks and not the actual heavy duty part. The original price was 48 thousand I think.

P.S. its gas and it gets 17 MPG.
