If you have one please let me know. A week later the damn truck lost overdrive and drive so they go and rebuilt the tranny. The tranny was burnt so they finally put a new tranny and a new torque converter in it. However, with several years, and many miles under their belts, most of the manufacturers have determined the best methods to manufacture bullet proof replacement parts, leaving a wide selection of proven parts now available. This is the second of three Dodge brand vehicles that I have owned in my life and I am seriously considering switching brands when it comes to buying my next vehicle. Prior to the failure, around 2,400 miles, I had the transmission fluid cooler replaced with a new Ram 3500 transmission fluid cooler, the transmission fluid, and filters were also replaced.
At around 19000 miles after the warranty expired the transmission broke. They said they had to make a software update. I only have 16000 miles on the truck now and have only had the truck a year and 3 month and have been in and out of the dealership. . Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. In the past, the mediocre four speed transmissions were the inherent weak link for the powertrain. Is it going to break as well??? They would not give me a new one so they rebuilt it - put all new parts except a torque converter.
The car would pop out of reverse and you could only rev the engine. When I contacted my local dealer to ask for some assistance he told me that since I was not the original owner of the vehicle the chances of the district manager giving his approval for assistance was very very slim. Is this the customer service that they expect out of their people?

It would only thump once each time I braked. After this truck I will never buy another dodge product again - Josh J. They don't know why the tranny keeps going out so now I'm stuck paying for a truck I cannot drive.
Even under normal use and with factory horsepower levels, these transmissions would also fail in the 100-150K mile range. Immediately after buying it I noticed a sporadic problem that would occur when trying to go in reverse. Dodge set out to revise this attitude with the release of the 6. My frustration is overwhelmed by disappointment and sadness in this situation as I continue to work hard and come home to a truck I am making payments on but have no ability to drive because of the sad craftsmanship that Dodge has now become. And due to the extremely electronically controlled nature of these transmissions, the processes involved to build more robust replacement parts has been tedious for the aftermarket manufacturers. I was hoping my problem was finally over but I got 17,000 miles on it now and it's sitting at my mom and dad's house with transmission problems again.
We will see I still have customer complaints number she said call back if not fixed and she would reopen the case. It also concerns me about my 06 dodge charger that has around 50k miles. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. I will never buy another Chrysler product again. Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. I am very disappointed in this. It is because the expensive parts will break before 100000 miles! I knew it had to be a defect then I started to look for a case because it still works it just leaks.

You would have to put the truck back in park and try again to get it to work. Well, they told me that it was ok to drive until they got the part in. For some reason Dodge has something called 2nd gear Prime which will destroy the clutches to overdrive if you pass a vehicle over 45 miles per hour, and the transmission drops down to 2nd gear. They said it sounded like a transmission issue. This problem was finally fix after 2 visits to the dealer. It started not wanting to kick down in overdrive and I took it in after the check engine light came on. My truck, a 2007 Dodge Ram 1500, was purchased in Dec.
