Fed up already!!

Bought new Ram 2500/6.7L less than a month ago. Has less than 600 miles on it and today makes the 4th time it has been back to the dealer. Every time it is the Electrical Failure light and the Engine light. They have loaded and reloaded software. Today they claim to have talked to the "Engineers" at Dodge and were informed to change the "Throttle Control Valve". Each time I have received a variation of the following problems. Loss of mileage, Jake brake engaging, split second hesitation at running speed (70). Has anyone else experienced these or similar problems? What was the out come.

Fed up in Biloxi, Ms.

Come on guys, dont have to tell him what to buy or waht he "should have bought". He came here for advice, he has an honest problem. No sense adding salt to the wound. I know the sick feeling of spending lots and lots of moeny on a brand new truck, thinking you got the world by the horns and then it turns out to be a lmeon. I got major problems w/my 07. Its a great truck when its running right. I lvoe it, I think ford dodge cummins all make godo trucks. But when you got cruddy dealers, and parts changers instead of mechanics, its frustrating. Not to hijack his thread at all. ONe thing make sure you document everythign. Get a clander, write down who you talk to what you said. DO NOT DO NOT LEAVE THE DEALER W/O A SIGNED WORK ORDER. I am going through a buy bakc w/gm right now (losign my shirt too), and documentation is everything

Hang in there I know where your at. Don't think though that a 5.9 is the answer, I had my 2006 5.9 Cummins Mega Cab 9,000 miles bought back by Dodge just last October for several issues I was having!

Ugh the new trucks are going to have issues! If you buy a brand new truck, you should know this, this is the risk you take. Some of the problems were having could be an easy fix later on down the line. (If you flow threw the other generations, you should know this).

I agree, that is one of the problems with buying a brand new product. They havent had the quantities to see what kinda of problems that they are going to have yet. Kinda like the quad steering with the GMC trucks. All the rage at first but then you dont hear anything about them anymore, dont know if it is because of problems that they may have had or what the deal is. In 2 years the new 6.7 will be awesome but it is going to take time for dodge and cummins to work through these little problems that they have now until they get a little time to figure out how to stop them before they start. This is just my opinion, i could be wrong.

First thing I would do is write down all the info you can remember to date. Write down the numbers of days in the shop and save all of your reciepts.
If it comes down to the point where you have to lemon it, and I really hope it doesn't, you'll be ready with the facts.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
