Lotsa misinformation.

The problem being addressed is a bad ball joint put on trucks between 2008 and 2012. There was a recall on this spring of 2013. As of now only 60% of the trucks were fixed, and that's what triggered the government mandated buyback. The buyback only applies to trucks that haven't complied with the recall, which is a number closer to 180,000.

Basically, if you haven't had your truck repaired under the recall, you'll have the option to either get the truck fixed, or have them buy it back for the original purchase price (not sticker) minus depreciation. That number will probably be around blue book. Bought back trucks will simply have the ball joint replaced and will be placed back on the dealer's lot.

Your statements sounds more logical. You can bet Dodge is not going to loose a lot of money. Later RJD

Other that that this simply has been the best truck I have ever owned. It pulls my 5er like it's not even there. If I ever buy another one it will be a Ram. The only real complaint I have is those Firestone tires, I have the Transforce HT they just plain SUCK. Going with Cooper Tires when it's time to replace.
X2. But 35k miles with general tires. Great truck. Would buy again.

Agreed. These details came out after this thread was started.

X3, here. I had the exact same 2 recalls and just hit 41k miles (of which, ~20k were towing miles).

The details were there at the beginning - just buried under the hyped up news stories!

Maybe so, but they weren't anywhere that I could.
