Dodge Ram Truck Problems, Complaints, Defects
Are you experiencing Dodge Ram Truck Problems, Complaints, Defects? Do you own a 2012 – 2019 Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 truck that produces one or more of the following symptoms/problems, and at least one of the symptoms/problems has been subject to 4 or more repair attempts at the dealership during the original 3 year/36,000 mile factory warranty, (or 100,000 mile diesel engine warranty )? (some newer models also have a 75,000 or 100,000 mile “power-train” factory warranty). Also, if you purchased your Ram used from an authorized Dodge dealer, you may have received a free “CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED” warranty at no charge, which also is applicable to California lemon law protection. “Warranties” that you PURCHASE from the dealer are NOT applicable to California lemon law.
Also, if your Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 truck has spent a cumulative total of over 30 days in the shop for substantial mechanical or safety issues before the truck reached 18 months or 18,000 miles (whichever occurred first) from date of new purchase, this is yet another potential avenue to lemon law repurchase/replacement settlement. Is this the case with your truck? If you have repeated problems, you can potentially have a California Lemon Law claim/case all the way to 100,000 miles!
If so, you may have a 2012 – 2019 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 truck that qualifies for coverage under California’s Lemon Law. You could receive your money back or a new replacement truck! In some cases you can keep your truck and receive thousands of dollars in compensation for the problems you have experienced. Some common Dodge Ram truck problems, complaints, defects…

If you feel that you meet the “4 or more repair attempts” or “30 days cumulative in the shop” criteria noted above, please call us at the toll-free number below to receive a FREE Lemon Law case review and evaluation of your Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 truck. PLEASE NOTE: For engine/drive-ability/etc. cases, we do not accept cases for review in which the owner has modified the vehicle via installation of aftermarket performance “chips”, “mapping”, “intake systems” and “starting at the exhaust manifold” exhaust systems, etc. Cat-back systems are O.K. There must be less than 5 vehicles registered to same owner/business.
Cases that are accepted will be at either NO COST or a very low “contingency fee” to the consumer (attorney’s fees billable to auto manufacturer under statute if attorney settles case).
The California Lemon Law protects consumers that purchase or lease vehicles in the state of California, register them here via paying California tax and license (registration), and have their warranty repairs performed at factory authorized California dealership locations. Consumers must keep their warranty work receipts, or gain a “warranty repair history” printout from the dealership to prove the repairs/repair visits that have taken place.
We would like to stress that the Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500’s are one of the highest quality and most technologically advanced trucks lines on the market, and that the issues noted above will likely not happen to most owner’s of these trucks. That being said, despite a manufacturer’s best efforts, some Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500’s will turn out to be “lemons” by their qualifying warranty repair histories. For these Dodge Ram trucks California’s largest lemon law firm can be a great asset to consumers in getting their legal entitlement under the California Lemon Law.
Our lemon law statute in California provides the manufacturer of your vehicle with a “reasonable” number of repair attempts to rectify the problem/symptom. The number of repair visits necessary to be “reasonable” is relative to how many months the truck has been in warranty service, the description and substantiality of the symptom/problem, and the number of miles currently on the truck. It should be noted that contrary to what you may read in your vehicles warranty book, California has no requirement for “arbitration”, allowing the consumer to directly seek and retain legal counsel to represent them in a “lemon law” case.
Manufacturer’s “Customer Assistance Centers” give out “case numbers”, which are NOT a lemon law case, but rather simply a reference number for the next time you call in with a complaint.
Watch out for the age-old trick of the “dealer trade assist” or similar wording used by some car dealers if a customer complaints about his/her truck that has symptoms/problems. Customers are often told “we will get you out of your truck and into a new one”. Don’t fall for this time-worn consumer ploy. This is simply the dealer trying to take your truck in trade and sell you a new one, taking all the negative equity from your current truck and hiding it in the loan or lease on the new replacement truck.
Our California lemon law is the avenue truck buyers utilize to get their money back, or a new replacement 1500, 2500 or 3500 truck (replacement with a new truck only applies if the truck was purchased or leased as new and both consumer and manufacturer mutually agree to replacement).
Under our California statute, consumers who buy or lease a new truck (or a used truck that is still under the manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty or “Certified Pre-Owned” program) all get to exercise their California Lemon Law rights if they have a qualifying repair history.
