Ram 2500 Power Wagon

  • 44,000 miles


My keys were able to be pulled out of ignition switch with just over 40000 miles on vehicle while vehicle was being drove. Now the vehicle was 8 years old when I bought from someone but only 40000 miles were on it. As time went on little things started happening, lights on dash would come on then shut off. Air would stay on even after shutting vehicle off. Then that would drain battery. The switch would become more loose over time. Keys wouldn't even stay in ignition, they would just fall out while I was driving.

Ram 2500 Power Wagon 8-cyl

  • 88,000 miles
Traveling on US93 out of kingman, AZ. Hit a patch of rough freeway and truck went into an uncontrollably death wobble. I was pulling a 12 foot haulmark motorcycle trailer when this occurred. It was a miracle we didn't crash. Got it slowed down and off the road everything appeared O.K. proceeded cautiously and now it was pulling hard to the right like something was out of line. After driving for appx 25 miles, whatever was causing it to pull to right corrected itself. Over the next 1500 miles this has occurred on three more occasions once with trailer and twice without trailer. Have new shocks and tires ordered. Have and appt with Dodge to have it checked out but have little faith in them.
