Not bad at least things have improved. Do keep us posted on how things go as you drive it more.
My 2014 Laramie limited Ecodiesel has been plagued with issues. I want to share my experience and get your feedback.
1. 05/14 dealer informs me that the truck shipped from factory but needs a fuel level sensor replaced. A week later it is fixed and I take a delivery.
2. 06/14 minor glitches with radio volume disappearing, bluetooth phone connectivity, cruise control not turning on, auto lights not turning off in bright daylight, etc. I choose to wait.
3. 09/14 7000k miles. Engine working rough in 1500 rpm range. Soon after check engine light comes on. I take it in. They diagnose oxygen sensor failure, order a new one, put me in a brand new ram hemi loaner. 2 weeks later sensor gets fixed, software re flashed under some recall, all back to normal.
4. 10/14 a week after last dealer visit, cruise control starts acting up. Doesn't want to turn on at all. I call the dealer. They promise to take a look. I'm getting a bit uneasy.
5. 10/04/14 disaster strikes. I go to park on a side of street in downtown Chicago when my onboard computer says "throttle control malfunction" and check engine light comes on. I loose the throttle entirely. Truck is disabled. Can't go too far on idle. I call the dealer. They again promise to look into it. I turn the engine off and back on after 20 minutes. The throttle is back to normal but check engine light stays on. I'm late to my appointment and pissed beyond belief.
So, obviously this impressive list doesn't reflect good on my truck considering it is a $56k, 5 month old vehicle. I love the way it looks outside and in especially in my limited package, I love fuel economy (avg 23 MPG mostly city), love the way it sounds and drives but I am totally loosing confidence in overall quality of Ram. These are not glitches anymore. These are serious problems that are costing me lost business and major inconvenience. Today I started thinking about Toyota Tundra Diesel.
I don't know the statistics about which model is more prone to fail but usually more complicated stuff has a higher probability of going bad. So far though my most serious issues have been isolated to oxygen sensor, catalytic converter, throttle controller and this most recent one: main computer. I believe these components are present in all Ram models regardless of the level of additional equipment. So back to statistics. Are you the lucky one and the rest have to deal with issues or are we the unlucky ones and the rest is happy? Good luck with your truck man! I guess I'm just going to get an extra computer and throw it in the glow box, just in case.Hello All! I am new here. Bought my Ram eco big horn in October. I have just shy of 10,000 miles on it and I have had zero issues. As I read through the threads, I am noticing a lot of the trucks with serious issues seem to be the high end Larime models. Anyone else notice that? I have read through several other forums out of curiosity and found a rather high amount of the issues are coming from the really loaded up versions. Any thoughts?
