2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 6.7 diesel

Summary:

Needs the bugs worked out

Faults:

Check engine light is a constantly on.

General Comments:

The truck runs and drives very nice for the most part. It has a ton of power for pulling our large trailer. HOWEVER, the check engine light is constantly coming on.

This truck has only 3000 miles on it, and we have taken it to the dealer 6 times! The computer has been replaced twice already. The truck needs constant software updates.

When the check engine light comes on, the truck will not drive normally and often needs to be towed. This in inconvenient at best right now that the truck is under warranty, but I cannot imagine the costs involved if this continues past the warranty period.

I like the truck a lot when it is not at the dealer and I can actually drive it. I really hope Dodge can figure out these computer issues. It is a common problem with these trucks if you look around on the internet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Hope you get the issues sorted out.

My family has a 2005 with the 5.9 diesel and it's been perfect.

You're also still in that "break in" period which may be the cause of some problems...

I hope Dodge finds what is causing the problem. My dealer say's it is a pollution control issue. I have a 2007 Ram 3500 with the 6.7 My light came on the first time at less than 1000 miles. The dealer keeps turning it off and say's do not worry if light is not blinking. Last time in shop they had to replace turbo and other emission control parts at a price of over 5000 dollars. Thank goodness for warranty. The truck still has less than 20,000 miles on it. I am afraid to go more than 100 miles from home in it. I hope they figure something out on the engine light problem, because, otherwise I love my truck for comfort, power, and overall performance.

2007 Dodge RAM 3500 4x4 Quadcab Diesel 6.7 Laramie Dually.

It has some 48000 miles, and has performed flawlessly. We were moving from Los Angeles to Saint George with a 6x12 trailer, and did this 400 mile trip about 20 times without any problems.

This truck is so strong that the cruise control did all the work on our trips. ANY hills we encountered NEVER slowed the truck down, even with two tool boxes, MAC maximizer and Snapon rollaway. These tool boxes are like the ones you see on NASCAR shows. They have to be loaded using a forklift. Boxes are 7 ft high each, 10ft long, and full of tools.

As I said, the truck's performance is sheer amazing. Sheer expense is going to be replacing the 6 tires and the oil changes, but if you need a truck with this kind of class, you can't go wrong.
