If I had to guess, I'd say it's the 2500.

I still ain't sure if mine in involved or not. If it is, I'll take the buy back and use the money to buy a smaller truck (Tacoma or Frontier), my 72 year old bones are getting tired of climbing into the Ram.

This "buy-back" ordeal is going to be a cluster you-know-what. Can you imagine what all the dealers are going to have to go through. With social media and the news media what it is, this thing is going to blow up big time.

I just ordered a 2016 megacab dually yesterday.

Ram just told them yesterday morning. They didn't know any details.

Will be interesting to see what kind of deal they give me on my 2011, and what kind of rebates will be on the 2016 in two months when it gets here.

I've got a 2007 Ram 2500. I just went to their website and searched my VIN for recalls and noticed that I have two still pending repair.

You may want to check and see if yours has anything listed for your truck. I had no idea.

I have had 2 recalls on my 2013 Wrangler. Both have been minor issues in my opinion. But, their recall process is terrible. Both fixes have taken 6+ months because "they aren't getting parts from corporate". Firstly, that's frigging ridiculous. What peaved me even more was that I called multiple stealerships and asked that I be notified when the parts were available. Not one of them ever called me back. I had to find out they were stocked up after I called again.

I don't think I would sell my 07 2500 back if they offered me full price what I paid for it. I have to much invested in it and it's paid for plus all the new ones are garbage and to expensive IMO.

I bought this one used and its given me quite a few problems, at 113000 its had new injectors and a transmission rebuild. The MPG has dropped to 10 with no load and still doesnt run quite right after the transmission rebuild. I bought it with intentions of never selling it but if I could get the payoff on it I'd probably get out before it breaks down again.

I think I inherited someone elses problem and they had enough lipstick on the pig that I couldnt see them until it was too late.

I've got a 2007.5 6.7 that I deleted and put a KORE lift on when it had less than 30K on it. They'd have to offer me a dang good price for me to sell it back. It's been (and still is) a great truck.

I have the early 07 with the last line of the 5.9s. It has a 6spd transmission and I have only had to put a water pump on it no other problems thankfully so far. I just put new nittos on it and a rear antisway bar. I bought it new and I have just under 75,000 miles on it so I plan on keeping it for a long time.

I believe they're around $58000 to $72000 before any rebates. I glanced at them yesterday.

My 06 5.9 has the same recalls issued but I called to try and request reimbursement for what I paid to have the front steering assembly upgraded and they declined. I guess 800 bucks is worth more to them than my future business.

My truck is paid for and I have invested the money to finally get it right and plan on keeping it for a while. Ram or fiat or whatever Obama dealership it's called will no longer get a dime from this ol boy.

I have an 09 1500 crew cab. It's had 2 recalls that I know of all ready. I think I'm getting the wobble also. My problem is that it's paid off, and has 230K miles on it. They won't offer me what I want, so I guess I'll see if they will pay for the repairs.
