New Ram Eco-Diesel Making Owners Sick!

It has been reported that new Ram pickups with the 3.0L eco-diesel has "literally" been making their owners sick. Fiat-Chrysler has determined the cause to be "carbon monoxide poisoning!" Some trucks have already been repaired, however at this time FC has not issued a recall. The problem seems to only be on 4X2 trucks at this time. Owners of such trucks should contact their Dealers.

2WD models only, apparently, and "levels well below OSHA standards."

Hey, I like your truck. Are you sure you meant "all"?

To bad no one makes an electric vehicle with a 500 miles range, cargo capacity of 1000lbs and a towing capacity of 10,000lbs. Really does not matter, someone here would still find something to complain about.

RAM and Ford are the contenders for me, considering the current crop of vehicles. If the Colorado diesel turns out well and has the stones to do what I need I may add that to the candidates. Forced induction is high on my list, and being able to look at it inside and out over the long term is important, as well as being able to park it where I need to take it.

Yes, as a matter of fact I can cite a source! "Detroit - ABC News Station WXYZ!" Now you can climb down off your "high horse." No rumor here. They have done several reports on this, beginning last November. In a recent update, Chrysler spokesman Eric Mayne "said that problem affects more trucks than previously thought, owners will be notified by a Technical Service Bulletin." So far they have been replacing "exhaust coupling." Satisfied? Or do you need more?

I'll just leave this here-
Heavy (Ram 1500) | Fuelly
The worst possible combination of the RAM EcoDIESEL for economy (Crew Cab, 4x4, 6'4" bed 3.92 gears) and I've averaged over 20 MPG. That includes towing a 29' 6,500lb Airstream 2,000 of the 15,000 mile average.

Hi, what makes me sick is your stinking diesel fumes. I think all prospective diesel vehicle buyers should be required to drive 1,000 miles behind a diesel vehicle with their fresh air vents open. Then decide how much you like to pretend that you're Joe Kenworth. To me this is like when you drive thousands of miles to see the Grand Canyon or the Delicate Arch, Etc. and some @$$ less than ten feet away from you, at this beautiful sight, lights up a stinking cigar.
