I think it would be informative if we had an on-going thread noting issues members have had on their brand new trucks. I've seen plenty of threads noting single or multiple issues or another, but they drop off eventually into "search mode". I've communicated with "The Stig", and if it's worthy, he will make it a "Sticky". It would then be helpful for members to help steer those who post "issues" to log them into the "Sticky" Thread. :thumbsup:

There seems to be a lot of biased towards 2013 models having more than their far share of issues. But that may be simply because there are so many more of them on the road (than 2014 models). And of course we are probably only seeing a very small percentage overall. But it begs the question - did the 2014 models benefit from those issues and they were addressed by Chrysler in one form or another for the new model year? Also, the inconsistency of bringing it in for one issue (re-flash), and leaving or noticing new issues after the initial issues were addressed!

Anyway, I think if the issues were kept condensed down to what the issue was/is, if it was addressed, and/or if it created other issues, it could be a worthy thread of information for all (imho).

My 2014 - No issues - Purchased 11/2013 - 7500 miles.

My 2013 3500- purchased 4/2013 with 15K miles- no significant issues. Occasionally have an issue that required resetting the 8.4AN. (3 times so far)

I have not been in for flashes/updates etc. Since I'm not having issues, I don't want to start any by getting the "latest and greatest."

This is a good idea.

Wow, lot of issues on such a new truck.
This wouldn't be acceptable on a Toyota or Honda yet it's expected on a domestic (or mexican/italian now?).

Not huge issues but it's really annoying to waste time going back to the dealer for warranty work.

About to pull the trigger on a 2014 3500 but perhaps I need to stick to my 2011 that is pretty much sorted out...

My truck in sig; Vibrations 60 and up, 8.4AN seems glitchy, not really impressed with these head lights other than they way they look, trans seems to shift a lot and is not very smooth. Hooked it up to my car hauler the other day maybe 9000 lbs, pulls nice seems to have balls until you get into sixth and every little hill causes it to shift to fifth.

Still on the fence with this truck.

Yep. Lots of issues. That's why this thread was created. It's not acceptable to any manufacture, but don't think for a minute that any other manufacture is exempt from having issues....

13k Miles Evic shows ~3k towing

Fuel heater not turned on. Gelled up. Dealer Fixed

Power Steering hose leak. Sat at dealer for a week till repaired.

Quirky 8.4an behavior early on, much better now, still not perfect.

Seems to downshift alot while towing.

With that said I love the truck, just hoping for a flash to improve throttle response.

Domestics really needs to step up, if there were this many issues on a new toyota truck, there will be hell to pay, different expectations.
We expect toyota to be reliable and nearly perfect, yet we expect nagging issues on a brand new truck to be a norm in domestics.

I love big 1 ton trucks so I don't have a choice in the arena but for a company that's been making full size trucks for decades, it's unacceptable that they still haven't figured out how to bring forward a new quality product with engineering and manufacturing quality sorted out.

With my ranting aside, I'll likely suck it up like the rest of us and get a 2014 3500.
