1500 Big Horn 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,000 miles


2014 RAM. Shakes on the highway 50+ MPH. There is no fix for this. This is an extremely common issue. Tires / Wheels / Driveshafts have been replaced. Do not buy this vehicle if you like a nice smooth ride. There are THOUSANDS of complaints about this issue. Dealer tried to fix it for a month.

This is the last of many attempts or get an answer on a rear vibration issue on my Ram 1500, 2014, which I bought as new March. 18. 2015. My dealer, Stockholm Pickup Center in Sweden have tried to solve it for the third time. Prior to this last, they send me 2 new tires, same brand, Goodyear, no change, then they replaced the drive shaft, no change, and now, 2 weeks back they call and say it's taken care of. They had replaced the rear rims and taken off the Magna Flow performance muffler, which they delivered. All good! I live 600 km away form Stockholm, so I had a friend that lives in Stockholm take it for a test drive, and the vibration is still there. The manager, Sebastian Lindgren, claims now that all Ram trucks comes with this vibration??? As far as I can figure out, this can not be right, regarding traffic safety and excessive wear on the truck. I also made an effort to get some input from dodge international customer care, but guess what? No can do. Anyone?

Worst care center ever!!!

Going round and round with them. The lies are unbelievable. They won't approve diagnostic charges OR TIME TO THE DEALERSHIP. Told me to take it elsewhere there is nothing more they do. The dealership (Artioli Dodge in CT) Best ever. Trying to figure out the problem.

so Far 3-4 sets of new tires. 1 new rim, rebuilt the rear differential unit (was told there was a bad pin in it when taken apart) new right ball joint assemble, balanced the drive shaft. Truck still shakes worse that ever. Asked about the buy back program. Honestly just want to get rid of this headache.

The shake started at 8k. and has gotten worse by the day. even with all the work. I now have 32000 on the truck and was told once I hit 36k they won't do anything more. I already had a fight with them as they told me I was out of warranty at 29000. I'm getting an ULCER over this. I now have to hand the phone to my husband when they call as it gets my blood boiling to hear the lies they tell.

1500 Big Horn 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles

Bad vibration at speeds between 50 - 70mph. I carried it to my local dealer for an oil change and have this checked out and they recommended getting the tires balanced. I had to take it to a local tire store because my Dodge Dealership did not have a balancing machine, imagine this first bad sign.

The tire store said the tires balanced out except one need a few more weights than the others. Left with the truck on vacation next morning same thing once I was on the interstate traveling at the same speeds. Carried the truck to the Dodge Dealership in Fort Walton, FL while on vacation left it for a day they could not find the problem. After returning home from vacation carried it to the Dodge Dealership in Huntsville, AL. Boy what a joke they have been so far.

Left it for 2 days and they did road force balancing and said it was a tire on the rear and I needed a new tire which they said was not under warranty. They put a new tire on which I paid for. Drove the truck 15-20 miles toward home and it started the same thing again. Called the dealership back they wanted me to bring it back the next morning knowing I was leaving out of town at 6am in my truck on a week long road trip.... Once I got back from the road trip it has now been in the shop 5 days they call and said that it needs tires on the front which they did not find the first time when they charged me for road force balancing of all 4 tires and one new tire. As of today it is still at the shop... Help!!!!

Update from Aug 7, 2015: Left with the truck on vacation next morning same thing once I was on the interstate traveling at the same speeds. Carried the truck to the Dodge dealership in Fort Walton, FL while on vacation left it for a day they could not find the problem.

1500 Express 5.7L

First off, HORRIBLE CARE CENTER!!!! I have been dealing with a vibration issue seen I bought the truck. They have gave me no solution as of this time. I have been around and around with the dealership and Ram about this issue, very annoyed to say the least..

It vibrates around 60-75mph, so bad my coffee spills in the center console. Dealership replaced drive shaft, front cv axles, rear pinion, and transfer case. Also road forced balanced my tires 4 times. SO SICK OF THE RUN AROUND.
