Let's see,..................
I've mentioned it before, but it really ****** ****** me off, so I'm going to mention it again. lol

Squeaky driver window when going down, not all the time, but sometimes.
Rusty rear wheel well, not bad, but it's there.
The MDS is pretty much my biggest gripe. Along with the rust.
A couple other things that I'm not mentioning.

The kicker??!!? ONLY 26,500 miles on the truck. That's it.
The issues started wayyyyy before the 26,500 miles. Probably 10,000 miles ago. Pretty poor if you ask me for a rcsb Sport 4X4 that cost over 44k back in 2016.
I think my next vehicle will probably be an awd car. I LOVE the Audi cars as well as the Mercedes Benz AMG cars. NASTY!
We'll see what the future holds. :favorites13: :head3:

Any of you guys have your USB media not recognized every once in a while???

I use a thumbdrive for music as the radio doesn't play what I want to hear. Every once in a while, the truck doesn't recognize the media. For instance, I'll go to the bank after work and then when I get in, it automatically plays the radio and cannot recognize device, even though the device is connected properly. :crazy: :crazy: :gayfight: LOL
Add this to the list of stuff I hate about my current Ram truck.
I do kinda miss my last Ram truck, but it was getting dated. Not crappy, but dated. It was a '05 Daytona rcsb in GoMango Orange and was in great condition.

I haven't had that problem in either of my Rams. ('14 & '19)

Yep, I have an old iPod I use for music in the truck and every so often it doesn't recognize it. I have to unplug it from the USB cable and plug it back in again, then it recognizes it....

The HEMI Tick.. it's embarrassing when you fire it up next to a group of people and tick tick tick.
The UConnect.. buy a 50k truck and they want to rob you with monthly charges and $600 for navigation that is technically your property being that it already on it. I hate uconnect so much, I'm fixing to go aftermarket..

I have the same problem. Plus it doesn't charge it until it's in use or switch it off like my old trucks did. Have to plug it into the other USB in the console or the battery is dead every time. Probably just replace it with a USB stick.

Here's one that's kinda baffling.

Probably about once a week when I start the truck after being off for a few hours, the clock is off. On a very rare occasion it is exactly off by the DST vs ST difference - i.e. this morning it said 5:28 when it was actually 6:28. BUT MANY TIMES it is off by several hours, and not to the minute or even close to it.

After 1-3 minutes it re-sets to the correct time.

Here's what's puzzling to me.

* Where is it getting the correct time from? I could see GPS, although I don't have GPS "enabled" on my truck.
* To the above point, if it IS getting time from GPS, why does it allow me to change the time to whatever I want? Semi-related side note, I had a relatively late model Mercedes where you could change the time, but only in increments that aligned with standard time zones. IOW, +/- a half hour
