I am so full of rage right now that I can barely formulate a proper thought.

Thats right folks! My RAM has been sitting dead as a door nail at the dealership for that last 2 days. It is just 4 months old at just over 6K.

Right now I am nothing but the object of ridicule from all the guys who warned me...."DONT BUY A CHRYSLER WHATEVER YOU DO!" including my co-worker who used to work for a Chrysler dealership!!!

I have instantly gone from converted Dodge booster to instant Dodge HATER...

...They were not even going to give me a loaner until I literally was on the edge of freaking out in front of customers in the dealership.

They use to call me Mr. Mopar, now if it's built after 1990 and is from Chrysler, you couldn't give it to me.

Yea, I agree there have been a lot of quality issues with MOPAR as of late. I didn't even consider buying the RAM.

My 96' Ram lost 1st gear in the automatic trans. with 150 miles on it. It was only 2weeks old. Since then I have had the trans. fixed or replaced 4 times. Not to mention all the other problems I've had. I will never go back to Dodge. You should see the file or repair orders I have. I could use it as a booster seat for a small child.

A friend of mine was a service tech at a Honda dealership that also sold Chrysler in the 90's and he told me that it seemed that 1 out of every 10 new Chryslers that were sold had transmissions replaced within the first year. As a comparison, he stated that he rarely saw any major repairs on Hondas while they were still relatively new.

II just sold my 1996 Dodge Ram that had 55,000 miles on it!!! Besides having it in the shop to fix a pressure sensor I just got it out 2 months ago after having to put in a rebuilt transmission. As they said" we have never seen this happen before". This truck was never abused, and still looked new. It had been in four wheel drive MAYBE 4 times. Loved the truck but after getting stuck outside of Grants. NM waiting for a tow truck for 2 ½ hours paying a $2800.00 dollar transmission bill and tow bill, low miles or not it had to go. Good luck getting anything from Chrysler. The dealership was decent. Hope I have better luck with the Titan. :crying:

chrysler

Static101: whew, that sucks about your Ram, but thank you for sharing the pain. i did seriously consider Ram 1500, Tundra, and the 2004 Sierra 2500 EC before we choose the Titan (the weaker Tundra was 2nd choice).

the only chrysler i'd get is a Wrangler v6 (have had two: they use old inefficient and weak engine, but it's realiable and that's what you want on top of snowy mountain trail, all alone with your "honey") or a Dodge Viper (don't need it, rather have a Hayabusa motorycycle)

Hey Static,
How much did you get for your Ram When you sold it. I will be selling mine in a few months, just curious...

Not as much as I would liked ot have since I had also just put $800.00 of new Big-O tires on it. I got $14,000.00. I think it was worth $16,000.00 but book was $12,900.00 and with the tranny issuie I guess I was lucky to get what I did. It was in awesome shape!! No Titan yet. Still looking!!!
