2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Exhaust manifold bolts commonly break, exhaust manifold gaskets should be replaced and replace bolts as needed.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

On some models a void in the rear window seal may cause a water leak. Water may be present on or under the carpet. The seal will need to be replaced if that is the source.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

If the engine does not crank (or cranks but won't start), the wireless control module (WCM) may have locked up. This is due to static discharge through the ignition key. A revised model should be installed, but simply disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for thirty seconds will temporarily reset the module so you can start the car.

Engine -- Verified

The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.

2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Reviews

I have had mine for a little over 2 years, first truck I ever bought new, I have owned about every truck out there and this is by far the best looking and performing truck I had. I don’t pussyfoot around and never have with this truck either. Over 100 mph many times, sorry, but just couldn’t help it . Love the pickup it has and that sound of that HEMI!! What sold me on it mostly was the commercial where the guy is asked "that thing got a hemi" and his response was "you about to find out" LOVE IT.. Now I was bent over at the dealership and won't ever buy from them again, but that's another story... GOOD JOB DODGE

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 V 8 , 5.7 L and about 63000 Miles , it is a nice truck , the MPG suck's, it's not get it 20 MPG , now it is in the dealer for the last 2 months with a major problem ( it is get it stuck on 4th. gear and not shifting ) nobody and I mean NOBODY can figure out what is the problem , not even CHRYSLER they don't know . So I will check twice before to buy this truck.

I will have to say that I absolutely love the Dodge sound and ride. I had an 08 1500 HEMI and traded it off for a 2010 1500 HEMI for really only 1 reason....noises on the interior more so the driver door panel. On my 08, made a popping noise and a rattle noise. Was in the shop 7 times for a total of 23 days in the last year. When they finally said enough was enough, we did everything possible, I traded it off for a 2010 exactly like it, same color, same options, etc.....GUESS WHAT???? the new truck makes the same exact noises coming from the driver door panel/window area. The center top portion of the dash rattles, front part of the door/dash area rattles. Purchased the truck last weekend, 58 miles on it, now, I am back to the same way of driving, left arm pushing against the door panel and steering with my right... Does anyone have any solutions about making the noise go away other than pull off the radiator cap and drive a GMC Sierra under it?....?

I agree with that other guy. I too shopped around and i found the new Ram to be the best total package. The new Hemi has got awsome power with ok fuel milage. I never drove anything like it on the highway,also the quitest,smoothest truck I've ever drove.. Well done Dodge...

My experience with this vehicle is great. Dodge makes a good truck. Downsides are a small backseat area compared to a F150. second is a huge exhaust restriction which has to be stealing horsepower
