Some issues that I have with my 2018 Ram 1500.

No manual on/off switch on the overhead dome light. I am 6'1" tall and weigh 240#. The front seats have no lower lumbar support which causes lower back pain on long drives. This puts you in a "hunch back" position. I had to purchase a lumbar support type pillow to alleviate this issue. I believe this is caused by the over extension of the head rest. The truck "slams" into park when you open the door while backing. Yeah, I do use the mirrors to back up but, I like to open the door to look back on occasion.

It's great for people who need to get places no matter what the weather and road conditions may be. Also perfect for those who make a living doing any sort of manual labor and need to carry their supplies.

Unfortunately my boyfriend was a bit too anxious and antsy to get a new truck so he was unable to get any special features. It is so so roomy and comfortable and it's travels beautifully in the snow, hard rain, and so far any weather conditions I've come across with this truck. I just wish that we waited a little longer ger to get the truck so that we could afford even simple features like a light switch somewhere on the inside, or mirrors with lights on the sun blocker fold-down.

I love our new RAM pickup. It has great power and towing ability but also has a smooth ride. It is easy to drive and judge distances. The seats are comfortable and has a good size back seat. We like the extras in it too. It can carry a good size load in the back. Even if we do not tow, carry heavy loads and stay on highway roads, it has a great ride and style and built to last.

Power Train > Automatic Transmission Apr 30, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Apr 30, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V280000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2018 Dodge Charger, Durango and Challenger, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Wrangler, Chrysler 300, and RAM 1500 vehicles. An incorrect transmission park lock rod may have been installed in the transmission.
Consequence:
If the incorrect park lock rod is installed, the transmission may not shift into 'PARK' and keep the vehicle from moving, increasing the risk of unintended vehicle movement and the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct park lock rod, free of charge. The recall began June 28, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U43.

Power Train > Axle Assembly Aug 22, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 22, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V556000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2018-2019 RAM 1500 trucks. The rear differential may have been insufficiently filled, possibly resulting in its failure.
Consequence:
If the rear axle assembly fails, it can cause a loss of drive or the rear wheels may lock up. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear axle oil level. Rear axles with an insufficient amount of oil will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began September 26, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U88.

Electrical System > Wiring > Front Underhood Aug 8, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Aug 8, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V524000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2018 Jeep Renegade, Compass and Grand Cherokee, RAM 1500 and Promaster, Fiat 500x, Dodge Journey, Challenger, Charger and Durango and Chrysler 300x vehicles, 2017-2018 Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country vehicles and 2018-2019 Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler Pacifica vehicles. The powertrain control module may be equipped with a voltage regulator chip in the circuit board that may fail, causing a stall or a no start condition.
Consequence:
A vehicle stall can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall began October 2, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U87.

Back Over Prevention > Sensing System > Camera Jun 13, 2018
Report Receipt Date:

NHTSA Campaign:
18V398000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2018 Dodge Journey and RAM 1500, 2500, and 3500 vehicles. The backup camera may experience a loss of image display while backing up. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, "Rearview Mirrors."
Consequence:
A loss of image in the rearview camera while backing up can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rearview mirror, free of charge. The recall began August 2, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U56.

Power Train > Automatic Transmission Feb 7, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 7, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V100000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2017-2018 RAM 1500, 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis, 4500 Cab Chassis, and 5500 Cab Chassis vehicles, all equipped with a column shifter. Pushing the brake pedal for prolonged periods when the vehicle is running and in PARK may cause the Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI) pin to stick in the open position. With the pin in the open position, the transmission can be shifted out of PARK into any gear without pushing the brake pedal or having the key in the ignition.
Consequence:
Being able to shift the transmission without pushing the brake pedal and/or without a key in the ignition can increase the risk of an unintended vehicle rollaway that may result in personal injury or a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners and dealers will update the Body Control Module software. Dealers will also test the BTSI operation, replacing the solenoid as necessary. The recall began February 26, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is U11.

Electrical System > Wiring May 16, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
May 16, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V332000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Dodge Journey, Charger and Durango, RAM 2500, 3500, 3500 Cab Chassis (more than 10,000lb), 4500 Cab Chassis and 5500 Cab Chassis, Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, 2014-2019 RAM 1500, 2015-2018 Dodge Challenger, 2015-2017 Chrysler 200, 2016-2018 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis (less than 10,000 lb), 2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. These vehicles are being recalled to address a defect that could prevent the cruise control system from disengaging. If, when using cruise control, there is a short circuit within the vehicle's wiring, the driver may not be able to shut off the cruise control either by depressing the brake pedal or manually turning the system off once it has been engaged, resulting in either the vehicle maintaining its current speed or possibly accelerating.
Consequence:
If the vehicle maintains its speed or accelerates despite attempts to deactivate the cruise control, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the software, and perform a software flash on the engine or powertrain control module, free of charge. The recall began June 4, 2018. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Note: Owners are advised to stop using cruise control until the software update has been performed. In the event that cruise control cannot be disengaged while driving, owners should firmly and steadily apply the brakes and shift the transmission to neutral, placing the vehicle in park once it has stopped.
