New Ram truck?

Is anyone on here getting a new Ram truck? I heard the company was going to buy back 500,000 trucks, mostly 2500 and 3500 trucks

Gov't: Fiat Chrysler must offer to buy back 500,000 pickups -

We are looking at a New 3500 and we are rethinking our purchase. Just want to see where this is going...

I just bought a new 2015 RAM 3500 4x4 with the 6.7L Cummings about a month ago and have been towing the heck out of our big 42' 5er with it. We haven't had any problems but we only have about 2300 miles on it so far and 1500 of that has been towing with the 5er. Maybe they will give me another one.

Read the RECALL. If your vehicle is affected, it COULD LOSE STEERING!
And it is NOT all trucks and NOT 2x2 and NOT 2008 and older OR 2013 and newer!
Let's not start a panic thread here and provide fodder for other brand owners to attack the truck.
IF YOU OWN A VEHICLE IN THE GROUP, contact a dealer and do what you need to do to protect yourself and others in traffic!

After reading the article it looks like Chrysler will offer to buy back a recalled truck at a value that is to be determined by most likely the dealer. It is a pretty safe bet they then will offer to give you a better buy back deal if you buy a new truck. The article also says they will fix the recalled trucks and resell them which make me wonder why they just don't fix the problem in the first place instead of buying them back. This whole thing sounds like a money making opportunity rather than some kind of punishment!

My 2012 has been so far problem free.

My truck isn't listed, which is a good thing. I love my truck and have had no issues with it. I would be upset if I had to part with it.

unless you have a 2008-2012, you are clear

From the news release

"Models included in the buyback offer are certain Ram 1500s from 2009 to 2012; the Ram 1500 Mega Cab 4 by 4 from 2008; and the Ram 2500 4 by 4, 3500 4 by 4, 4500 4 by 4, and 5500 4 by 4, all from 2008 through 2012. Also part of the offer are 2009 Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango SUVs and the Dodge Dakota pickup from 2009 through 2011."
