Do people really not fill up the tank? I don't know how many people run it the entire way full ---> empty, but it seems pretty common to fill at 1/4 tank. So maybe they just don't let it get down all the way?
Even though new cars have gotten exponentially more reliable in the last 10-20 years, batteries are still pretty much the same as ever. They have not made similar increases in quality.
From my experience there's a lot of die-hard GM/Ford guys who would never drive the other brand. However, both of those groups are willing to consider Ram. It's sort of a neutral third party that's still a big beefy American truck. I've also noticed the new Ram seems to be the most popular with first time truck buyers, which considering the tremendous brand loyalty with trucks is a smart move by FCA.
2018+. 15-17 have the abysmal 8-speed trans. 15s in particular have terrible reliability. A brand new one would be the best bet as all of the bugs have been worked out of the platform by now.
All vehicles with the 5.3 have a 6-speed. Pre-2018 vehicles with the 6.2 have the 8-speed.
Stay away from the 8-speed trans. Otherwise, keep an eye out for the same minor issues you would on any other used vehicle.
