Hey fellas,

I have an '08 RAM 1500 4x4 with the Hemi. It's been a very good truck with very few problems.

I use it for work and may need to replace it for a new business write off.

I also have a 2013 VW Jetta sportwagen TDI. The fuel economy is spectacular at 50 mph on the highway.

I've seen the ads on TV and the truck sounds interesting. A friend who follows auto forums told me that there are reported problems with the how the diesel vapors are recirculated and utilized. I believe it has something to do with problems with the emissions systems. He said there are reports that there are known problems with this engine.

I don't know anything about it. What can you fellas tell me about your experiences with this ecodiesel engine. And how many miles have you put on it?

Firemist hit the nail on the head. Don't get me wrong, the hemi is a darn near bullet proof set up, but I personally keep vehicles for quite awhile ( 10 years or so). The math was simple....the diesel upgrade would easily pay for itself and some in my uses.
I ordered a laramie crew 6'4" bed 4x4 in July and took delivery in September. About 8300 miles and only issue so far was nothing related to the driveline. I personally know 2 other locals that both have well over 15000 miles of near zero issues (1 had a cel that was cleared within the first 100 miles...no problems since).
Msrp on mine was 53, but between rebates, incentives, & some working on the price I was able to get about 11 grand off ( not including my trade). Good luck!
Mine was pretty loaded minus air suspension and ram box.
