  • This happened to me back in 2013 and I had to pay to repair it - while it was in the shop Chrysler said there IS NO problem with situation and that I must have done something to the truck.. I said yea right, I only drive it ..

    I called them today and they told me I DON'T QUALIFY after I asked if Dodge was going to pay me back for their mistake!
  • i already replaced 2 rearends and believe me they are not cheap or easy to find maybe ill get reimbursed
  • This recall has not officially launched and is still being investigated. Once the recall officially launches, you will be notified via mail if your vehicle is in the affected population.

    I have a 2011 Dodge Ram Big Horn 4x4 Crew Cab that is on the recall list as I verified this with FCA. I was also told that if I get the retention feature installed to the pinion nut then Chrysler will not buy back my vehicle minus depreciation. I was told by the dealership I purchased the pickup from that when I receive the letter, bring it to them and the service manager will see if the affected part can be fixed. I guess then that Chrysler and the dealership won't be out any monies. I have parked the pickup in my yard and don't plan on driving it until I get the letter from Chrysler, but I will not keep this vehicle either way because I do not trust the fix. I just took my family up to Pikes Peak and when I returned home I seen the recall notice in my mail. I don't even want to think about what could have happened and because of that, I don't trust my pickup any longer.

    I also purchased this vehicle because I have a Safety Consulting business and I couldn't afford a new one, so I thought I was getting a good deal on the used one and I have taken potential clients and customers in this vehicle. This could have had a bad ending.
  • Still no word. Dealer still has no idea when the repairs can be made. My driveshaft sounds like it has a metel clothes hanger wrapped around it.

    I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 and when it shifts into overdrive it slams like it goes into low or reverse for a split second. Anyone have any ideas on this? Thank you
