Ram 1500 SLT 5.7

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,000 miles

OK THIS IS MY SECOND ROUND WITH THIS PROBLEM. I HAD IT FIXED BY A DEALER AND A MONTH LATER MY BEARINGS WENT AND HAD TO HAVE THEM REPLACED. NOT YET A YEAR LATER AND THE EXACT THING IS HAPPENING AGAIN. THE DIFFERENTIAL IS A PIECE OF CRAP. NOW THEY TELL ME THE CLUTCH ES ARE WORN OUT ......WHAT THE HELL DID THEY REPLACE?. ANYWAY THE SOLUTION HERE IS TO BUY A DETROIT TRUE TRAC DIFFERENTIAL AND REPLACE THE DODGE CRAP THAT'S IN THERE. THE DETROIT IS ABOUT $420. AND THE LABOR TO REPLACE IS WHAT EVER THE PERSON DOING IT CHARGES. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO FIX THE PROBLEM, GOT THIS RIGHT FROM THE DODGE MECH MOUTH. OH BY THE WAY HE TOLD ME TO CHANGE THE REAR END FLUID EVERY 30,000 MILES AND PUT THE DODGE ADDITIVE IN WITH IT. WOW......REALLY......NO ONE TELLS YOU ANYTHING AND THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO? DETROIT TRUTRC.........CAN'T GO WRONG

Ram 1500 SLT 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles

My rear Differential went out on the way to Ill. Towed to Dealer. Have extended warrenty but they wouldnt cover, because I continued to drive after realizing there was a problem. I was in the middle of corn fields in winter and was trying to make it to next exit. Dealer replaced rear end with used. On way back to florida I realized there was a vibration in rear. Found out both back axles are bent. Now I have to take it back to dealer and they wont cover labor or rental car. Having to pay Dodge 2 times for same repair. Have to get fixed to get rid of it. Terrible service at Cornet Dodge in Peru Ill (using junkyard parts) and The people at Daytona Dodge in Florida just dont care. Will never buy from them again. You shouldnt either if you dont want to get ripped off.
