    Chrysler Capital Ram Lease Impossible to Trade at Lease-End w/Equity

    As the OP, yes I do understand Leasing, I have leased many vehicles including from my own dealerships. I have approved a few hundred lease contracts in Ford and GM stores. But I am retired now, I still lease my vehicles and I don't walk in and announce that I was in the car business for 40...

    Chrysler Capital Ram Lease Impossible to Trade at Lease-End w/Equity

    Anyone currently leasing or thinking about leasing, Ram or otherwise, needs to read this and understand it, as thousands of dollars in your real money could be lost. I've leased quite a few vehicles over the years. Mostly Ram 1500 trucks, but also Chrysler cars and Lexus. I've never had a...

    Rear diff blew, locked up, snapped driveshaft

    Things are gonna happen regardless of age, miles, maintenance performed (or not) .... My thoughts always go back to 1- You can't plan for this, and 2- Not everyone has 10 grand extra cash lying around. These vehicles are obscenely expensive to buy, ridiculously expensive to maintain and...

    Passenger front tire just fell off!

    Non-OEM / AFTERMARKET Equipment makes for an easy warranty coverage denial every time. Complete engines, transmissions, and differentials have been denied.

    Life already has a sufficient number of obstacles to overcome without bringing an EV into the mix.

    2021 ram 1500 etorque problems

    No one has hated it so much to learn the process of eliminating the etorque and once you develop the parts list going back, I guarantee that is where etorque hate mysteriously is never to exist again.

    Can we please get past the dealership model?

    As a dealer sales manager or general sales manager for 35 years I preferred to work the deal desk, train salespeople and meet our customers. Working for high volume stores is where the real "car guys" were in the '70's to early 2000's. Dealers today are not that way. Young sales forces with...

    Can we please get past the dealership model?

    A man entered the showroom and was greeted by a salesperson. The man announced that he would be buying a new Crown Victoria and said that he would be "taking the salesperson to school on how to beat the dealer into making no money on this sale". He pointed to the 5 year old Vic that he owned...

    Brand new 2023 Limited catastrophic transmission failure at 1200 miles

    I have to agree wholeheartedly. You bought a new truck with a new transmission and now you have a new truck with a used transmission. It's not what you bought !! I will say that you have a beautiful truck . I would be so pissed I couldn't see straight !! Either get a new transmission or a new...

    Pricing is out of control

    Damn, it took 6 years for highway miles per gallon to increase by 1. Only 1 mpg. 6 years. WoW !

    2023 Ram 1500 Etorque problem

    I've had both. A 2019 1500 Hemi and a 2021 1500 Hemi etorque. Of the two, I have no issues with the etorque and would buy another by choice. I really like it as it seems to have more on quick acceleration. The 2021 is clearly a more advanced product over the 2019 and with improved quality. With...

    I Gotta Ask...

    I agree. Mine is the one you see first when you pull into Walmart and is parked the furthest distance from the front doors. I've had 3 Rams in 20 years and never a door ding. They all got washed every week year round. My current Ram had a sticker of 53K .... how can you not take care of...

    2023 5.7L V8 HEMI MDS VVT eTorque Engine 3.21 Rear Axle Ratio

    Anyone who buys a Ram Hemi is more concerned with speed and performance and no thought of gas cost and miles per gallon. (I'm getting the usual 11 mpg around town). This guy only needs to get the right foot down and drive according to conditions and posted speed vs rpm worries. Towing safely...
