Default 2014 RAM1500 new Transmission
Guys,

I was looking at this new 2014 RAM truck in a dealership, which has 99,100 kms and I heard whining noise when I accelerate and give gas. Finally after getting a good deal, I took the truck to dodge for a buy/sell inspection and they said the noise is due to transmission and they are changing to a new transmission without any cost from us.

The bad thing is if I buy this truck, I will not have any factory warranty after 800kms. Dodge gave me a report saying all other things are perfectly normal and no leaks. Is this new transmission good on a used truck and would you buy this truck?

Please advice.

Thanks,
AG

It had better be heavily discounted before I'd take it. Ask if the replacement transmission has warranty and if it's actually new- I would suspect a reman. A reman is fine, but I am of the opinion that they should be handled by the factories not in house.

Any chance they'll throw in a little extra warranty? I would proceed with caution.

The new trans should have it's own warranty. I would also Google Chrysler extended warranties, and see if one fits your budget.

if no extended warranty on the reman trans, then, no, I wouldn't buy it.

I’m not sure $28k CAD is that great of a price for a 2014 with 100,000km on it, unless it is a really high trim level. If it is a Sport or lower I would say walk away and find another truck that doesn’t have issues or has lower mileage with warranty remaining.

Is this the 8spd or 6spd transmission we're talking about.
