J.D. Power Study Shows Ford, Honda and Ram Buyers Are Happiest

13F150-Lariat_02_HR II

The annual J.D. Power Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) study attempts to gauge how well new vehicle owners like their car or pickup truck in 77 different areas. Of course, this is very different than J.D. Power's other studies that attempt to assess 90-day initial quality and three-year vehicle dependability. As you might imagine, opinions vary across the automotive spectrum but the 2014 results for those interested in pickup trucks are interesting.

In the pickup categories, the vehicles with the highest rankings were the Honda Ridgeline (Midsize Pickup), the Ford F-150 (Light-Duty Pickup) and the Ford F-250/350 Super Duty (Heavy-Duty Pickup). It's also worth noting that the highest-ranking brand that makes a pickup is Ram, falling between automotive brands Hyundai and Volkswagen, with a score well above the non-premium brand average score.

To check out the full story and see how all other categories and brands scored, see the full story by Cars.com's Consumer Affairs Editor Kelsey Mays.

Sorry, I didn't finish my sentence from above.

**Yet a BCM short that was caught on the 14,500 trucks that had the issue before most were sold to customers as a bigger deal than even a federal investigation?

@All1, obviously you didn't read my above post that's why i yell a lot. let me repost it for ya,


Not to minimize the Ram recall for the rear end. That could be a big problem if it occurs on the highway However, unlike Ford this has not involved multi millions of vehicles and 20 plus years like the Ford Ignition switch Fires, cruise control fires, and electrical Fires Fords are famous for. Don't take my word for it do some research. Also keep in mind Fords are also recalled for many other issues. Fire is the worst in all recalls in my mind. I guess because i experienced it first hand very scary.

P.S My 03 has NO RECALLS!

@Hemi v8


@R3NxSTONEx, So you want to compare a Ram in a wreck to A Ford that is parked. Sorry guy. : ( Their is no comparison.


Your right no comparison .... Ram does not protect occupants of their vehicles and other truck makers do.


Having your rear end lock up at freeway speeds also is not a concern.

Like Ford is the only truck to burn.... Dodge/rams have been burning for some time now just google it.

Motor Trend was testing a freaking Ram that started on fire and burnt to the ground.... Then they get an award? Tell me how much Fiat paid for that?

BREAKING NEWS.

Who needs steering in their Ford truck. They do so well in wrecks. lol

@ R3NxSTONEx, What Ford make model you got?

And what do past recalls from 20 or even 10 years ago have to do with current productions. So what is you point?

Have you researched all the Chrysler/Ram/Dodge/Jeep fire recalls over the years too? Those vehicles add up into the millions as well. Again, so what is your point?

Admit it, you just focus on fire recalls and other recalls because fan boy who has to do all he can to bash other for his beloved brand. You bring up recalls just out of the blue. Why? Are you doing it because you are weak in real life so you have to come her to be an internet tough guy as your only release or are you just naturally an anus in real life that loves to make everyone as miserable as you are by bashing everything? Why do you do it even when no one has provoked you to do it? Why d also have to keep bringing up the same old recall again and again like it is anything new or still valid. So you don't like Fords because of old fire recalls, move on with your life and enjoy your new Ram. It is like this hatred for all that is Ford and their old fire recalls controls you and your emotions so much that is compels you to bash them at every chance you get.

PS: My 11 has no recalls either. Oh and I have been in a building that was on fire too, but I maned up, got over it, and moved on since I wasn't hurt.

@All1, around and around we go. look at this post from the beginning. See who starts with the brand bashing. Then see why every f ing blog becomes a recall war. Why don't YOU answer the questions I ask?

@Hemi V8

I wouldn't be making fun of Fords on that steering recall. Your 2003 falls under NTHSA recall ID 10E013000 where the pit-man arm on 2003-2008 Ram 1500/2500/3500 models can fracture and break away from the steering gear box causing total loss of steering. You are making fun of Ford for a steering issue when your own truck year had one.

@Hemi V8

You betcha! Not to minimize the Ram recall for the rear end. That could be a big problem if it occurs on the highway However, unlike Ford this has not involved multi millions of vehicles and 20 plus years like the Ford Ignition switch Fires, cruise control fires, and electrical Fires Fords are famous for. Don't take my word for it do some research. Also keep in mind Fords are also recalled for many other issues. Fire is the worst in all recalls in my mind. I guess because i experienced it first hand very scary.

My Ram and current Ram trucks are more powerful,more options,more features, better gas mileage, better warranty,better looking and have an awesome 4x4 heritage compared to Ford. Most cases I can get more truck for the money. And that is why I bought and will continue to buy Ram trucks. Until someone make a better truck than Ram I will always buy Ram trucks. And as good as mine has been for the past 10 years why would I buy anything else?

I think you let blind love for a brand sway your research, argument and the facts.

Run a search on Ram recalls and Chrysler recalls.

Check what the majority of motor authorities say about Ram/Dodge or Chrysler reliability ....they are not anywhere near the top.

Your letting your brand love speak when you suggest ram is more powerful.. options is debateable as ram needs air bags to have a suspension to compete and that is known to cause issues in cold climates.

Better mileage.... you do know that no vehicle gets the advertised mileage right? my 2009 ram got 13 in the city when I drove it like a little old lady.

better warranty.. that is a laugh and I think I stated my last three trucks were Dodges and Ram. 2009 chrome bumper issue of rust... check the ram forums and how ram has avoided this. Neighbors 2013 Laramie rusted bumper ... 4 years later and he gets no where on warranty. I had bulbs burning out left right and center.... service and warranty could not find a problem. rear end recall... three return visits after recall as now their is some mighty strange noises coming out of the rear end... everything is fine we did nothing to the truck yet noise still their and service manager and mechanic brought out to listen to the clunk and grinding.

brakes done at dealership... two blocks away truck returned as the squealing sounds like a train stopping... they turn rotors... problem still there. they replace all four rotors and discover the Mopar supplied rotors are all warped...not one or two...all four! tell me what kind of a service department tell you pick up your vehicle and the problem remains... obviously numerous times it was not test driven as I could rarely get two blocks from dealership.

I bet you didn`t know getting rotors from your dealer is like a lottery... service manager told me this has become a huge issue as the rotors coming in are warped and when they turn factory rotors they warp. talked to a friend who is a mechanic at a Chrysler DEALERSHIP... His words were they are experiencing this problem with several lines and not just ram. He indicated it used to be a huge problem with the jeep line now it is in several vehicles.

Ask ram and jeep owners how their warranty deals with the high speed wobble problems.

Ask Ram owners with the Cummins how their great warranty covers injector pump failures accusing owners of using poor diesel fuel.

awesome 4x4 heritage.... jeep sure. ram no different then ay other truck.

No vehicle is perfect but to make false claims or be blind to the truth because you have brand loyalty is arrogant and misleading.

I apologize to Hemi and the rest of the Ram community but I laughed when he said the worst was a but in the rear of Ram. My mind must be f'd-up cause that sounded like a huge problem.

Consumer Reports has named the 2014 Ram 1500 a "top pick" in its 2014 Autos Spotlight released Tuesday.

ADVERTISEMENT
Ford Transit Tour, Click Here....
The publication called the Ram 1500 "surprisingly refined and inviting" and said its coil-spring rear suspension "makes it the most comfortable-riding truck." The publication evaluated a Ram equipped with a 5.7L V-8 engine that returned a combined 15 miles per gallon in testing. The pickup is also offered with a 3.0L V-6 diesel engine that gets an EPA-rated 28 mpg highway. The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel began shipping to dealers on Wednesday, Chrysler announced.

@ R3NxSTONEx, What Ford make model you got?

@All1, Still havent answered my questions. Do i need to ask them again?

I see Ford and GM owners being honest with faults in their trucks on this site and many others.

I see Ram owners desperately trying to change facts and out right lying about their trucks. I almost sense that they are trying to sell Ram then express a true truck ownership.

Ram supporters here claiming many firsts then having this dispelled by the truth of other manufacturers having done it first. I say Ram supporters because I think it is clear many do not own Ram and their agenda here is to rewrite the facts to put ram in a better light.

Oh Ram sales are up by this percentage.... yeah based on what they previously sold. fact is GM and Ford are miles ahead in total numbers sold.

Ram has awards... motor trend and some journalistic nobodies in Texas. Okay explain to me how ram wins a award when the staff at motor trend take out the Ram and it burns to the ground?

http://www.dallasnews.com/business/columnists/terry-box/20130326-terry-box-freak-pickup-fire-on-test-drive-taught-me-vehicles-dont-burn-like-they-used-to.ece

You tell me do you give a award to a truck that almost killed you?


Ram owners fail to recognize leading motor authorities who indicate RAM has the worst reliability of the three top North American truck makers.

Ram owners immediately change the subject when they are caught in their lies of Ram First or issues with their brand. immediately the subject is changed to what's wrong with other brands and the original question is never answered and avoided at all costs.

Ram owners have the nerve to make fun of GM for bail outs calling them government motors.... lets have a history lesson should we? Chrysler bankrupt in 1979...1998 to 2007 Daimler Chrysler ...2007-2009 Cerberus ...

On March 30, 2009 President Barack Obama issued a US Government guarantee of Chrysler's warranty liabilities, and publicly stated the U.S. Government will back the warranties on Chrysler vehicles if the company were to go out of business

On January 20, 2009 Chapter 11 reorganization.

Ram owners you live in a glass house so I wouldn't be throwing rocks.

Ownership has change often and financial woes set the stage .... This is a Ram/Dodge/Chrysler first claim that has truth.

Poor Quality and Mismanagement loom heavily over this brand regardless of ownership.

Germans walked away knowing full well what they got themselves into.... now it is Fiats turn... Italian quality just doesn't carry the same value as German engineering and quality.

Ram is leading the market in saturation of advertising much like lee Iacocca did to hammer sales.... in the end quality, reliability and value came to the forefront and no amount of advertising or claims could save the day.

Ram numbers are up right now and we will surely see how many of these owners love the experience and repurchase this brand... in five to 7 years the telltale signs of quality and service issues, ignored warranty will paint a clear fact of customers deciding their are better products to spend their money on.

One only has to read up on Fiat and the product to discover this is a match made in heaven for two auto makers struggling and producing less then top quality vehicles.

I am a former Ram/Dodge owner who speaks from experience of three consecutive vehicles with quality issues and ignored warranty concerns... not one vehicle but three in a row... I was stubborn and stupid to put brand loyalty ahead of common sense.

I learned a valuable lesson to read about vehicles, research and best of all talk to people who own trucks. it will not take long to discover who has brand loyalty and who speaks the truth about trucks.

Read the commentary on this site... are these really Ram owners or are they trying to sell the brand?

Why do these people who defend Ram fail to answer questions and instead launch into this is what wrong with Ford, GM or Toyota?

Why do Ram owners have to avoid questions with Guts, Glory Ram? That is the ram commercial... as a truck owner do you respond to questions and recite the commercial for your truck?

I don't see Ford tough or Like a rock being posted here? Are these Ram owners or people pretending to be owners selling a brand? you decide.

"awesome 4x4 heritage.... jeep sure. ram no different then ay other truck."

Really? So you didn't know Dodge was making 4x4 trucks before jeep was ever created?
So you didn't know Dodge had the first civilian 4x4 truck ever offered to the public 10 years before ford and chevy?
So you didn't know Chrysler supplied transfer cases to Ford and Chevy? Seems you don't know much if it isn't a Ford.

So you didn't know the Dodge brothers built Fords first vehicles?

Dodge if you know you know.

@ R3NxSTONEx, What Ford make model you got?

2013 F150 XTR super crew Eco boost. 500 to 600 lbs in the bed and getting 17 mpg in the city. drops to about 15mpg when I pull my trailer to site.

I almost went for a FX4 but didn't like the blacked out look. looked at a lariat and a king ranch and I am not one for leather in a truck because I use it for work. wife tried talking me into leather as hers has stood up well but a guess im old school.

last truck was a 2009 ram SLT with every option except leather or moon roof. hemi,3.92 gears.

Ford tows better and gets better mileage.... hemi was 13 city and 11 towing trailer. ford has only had oil changes and tire rotation with no service issues.... my ram lived in service.

Now in its second generation, the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine has once again earned a place on Ward’s distinguished “2009 10 Best Engines” list. Relentlessly delivering powertrain excellence, Chrysler LLC has earned Ward’s “10 Best” award six times in the last seven years with the iconic 5.7-liter HEMI engine.
“The HEMI earns the honor not on pure emotion or brute force but with advanced new technology such as variable valve timing, which allows cruising in four-cylinder mode about 40 percent of the time, which is twice as much as the previous-generation Multi-Displacement System cylinder-deactivation system,” said Tom Murphy – Executive Director of Ward’s AutoWorld magazine. “A number of Ward’s testers managed to top 19 mpg (12.3 L/100 km) with the HEMI, putting it in line with certain premium V-6s tested.”

oh I get 27mpg or 29mpg on the highway depending on the hills

Great. Want some honest advice. go talk to the fleet manager or the GM of the dealership. Tell them you want to take the truck for not a five minute test drive but for a few hours. Drive it like you normally drive and record the mileage because then you will have a true indication. Altitude, road surfaces, level ground, traffic, climate, humidity all play factors in the fuel economy. most trucks I have seen are very close in mileage regardless of the brand... if mileage was that huge of a issue then maybe a truck isn't what your after.

@hemi V8

My sister in law just bought a Hemi outdoorsman with the 8 spd.... she is getting 15mpg city and hopes it will do better once broken in. truck has about 2000 miles. I know my 2009 hemi mileage improved and so did the power at about 12 to 14000 miles.

so many factors in what fuel mileage you will get... climate, road surfaces, level ground, traffic and then driving habits.

So Your one year old Ford truck is awesome compared to your old Ram. What a surprise. lol Why don't you wait a few years before telling Ram owners like me with a 10 year old Ram their trucks are garbage?

Less face the facts bud your Eco boost hasn't gotten off to a great start. I mean with all the law suits and owner complaints.

Dodge if you know you know.

Okay and what exactly is your point? Did dodge also invent the first horse before the automobile?

Fact is everyone today produces 4X4's.

where are you going with this? are we going to start talking about the first electric starter, first powered widow, first aut transmission, first hemi engine?

Alan R. Welch and his brothers, owners of the Welch Motor Car Company, are credited for pioneering the hemispherical engine. The power plant was a simple 20-horsepower, 2-cylinder engine with a single overhead camshaft. Although the General Motors discontinued the HEMI in 1910 when it bought Welch, Peugeot developed its own hemispherical engine. BMW mass-produced a HEMI version before Chrysler engineered it for modern use.

Kind of redundant now don't cha think?

"There's nothing more American than the V8, and we think the modern Hemi is the best of the breed,” said senior technical editor for Ward’s AutoWorld Bill Visnic. “The Hemi is power-dense, perfectly sized and incorporates sophisticated-yet-straightforward efficiency-enhancing technology to help it stay relevant in a market that is becoming increasingly conscious of fuel economy. But above all else, the Hemi is just plain fun."

@Hemi v8 I don't know when you drive so when did I say it was garbage?

Ram has two engines with better mileage? the gutless V6 ...yeah how does that tow in a full sized ram? and what is the mileage towing?

The VM diesel... it should get mileage it's a diesel. claimed $2850 option although it is only coming with a $4000 upgrade to premium models. the price of diesel is higher in most parts of north America... it will be a while before you see a cash return. speaking of the VM diesel did you know about the issue of the EGR's plugging up with city driving and idling?

Have you seen or test driven a Ram VM diesel? they have one at my buddies dealership and you cannot test drive it. he said they have sold the only other one they received. I have yet to see it or any other on the road. have you heard the costs should you need repairs done on this diesel? Makes cummins look like a bargain.

Maybe you should trade your old Ram in cause it sure sounds like the new ones are ram terrific by your accounts.... get the VM diesel and let me know when you start saving money .

@R3NxSTONE, "Fact is everyone today produces 4X4's."

And Dodge and jeep make the most capable 4x4's

Dodge Power Wagon

Jeep Rubicon

@ Hemi V8 my Eco boost is fine no issues what so ever. You are correct when the ecoboost was first brought in their was issues with the intercooler being to efficient and that was corrected quite some time ago. a handful of complaints for the millions and millions sold.

You should drive a eco boost... you'd be surprised how efficient and the power it makes. I fear no hemi and do not miss my hemi.

you do know future plans at Ram call for a turbo charged pentastar v6 right?

@R3NxSTONEx "Ram has two engines with better mileage? the gutless V6 ...yeah how does that tow in a full sized ram? and what is the mileage towing?"

Better than Fords gutless overheating V6.

Dodge Power Wagon

Jeep Rubicon

@Hemi V8 yeah I read about the power wagon losing the 4x4 shoot out here. How is the fuel mileage in the power wagon? or is it just people that own gas stations that buy one?

Jeep Rubicon... They are tough but in my mind over priced.

Have you read about the up roar amongst die hard jeep lovers... fiat announced the next jeep will have independent suspension or rumor of it anyways.... went over like a lead balloon.. they do that and the prices of the older jeeps will definitely rise.

They talk crap about Fords next truck being aluminum and in the same breath mention the next jeep could move to aluminium because of all the advantages.... is that like insert foot in mouth here?

@R3NxSTONEx "Ram has two engines with better mileage? the gutless V6 ...yeah how does that tow in a full sized ram? and what is the mileage towing?"

Better than Fords gutless overheating V6.

@Hemi v8 then you should buy a pentastar V6 Ram or mini van if you like them.

@R3NxSTONE,"You should drive a eco boost... you'd be surprised how efficient and the power it makes. I fear no hemi and do not miss my hemi."

Don't need to PUTC did. The Hemi spanked the Eco boost loaded and unloaded.

"From the outset, we knew the Ram would be the one to watch. The Hemi V-8 is rated with the highest horsepower of our group at 395 at 5,600 rpm, and when combined with the deep 1st gear of an eight-speed transmission (4.71:1) and a compliant air suspension, we had a feeling it would be the one to beat. That's exactly what happened."

Posted by: R3NxSTONEx | Jul 28, 2014 3:10:23 AM

Soooooo, which one is it?

This is fun.

I bought 1 chrysler product several years back. The first night I drove it ( had a paper route) halfway through the route it wouldn't go into reverse. Also the radio quit working. Took it back the next day, service said it was just a loose cable. Even back then poor quality was acceptable as far as they were concerned. Had to pay 250 to get my old car back because they had painted it. I will never buy from that company again. BTW, the service dept called about 6 months later and said my radio had come in. Think about it, chrysler had to offer better warranties and still are far behind in domestic sales. How are they taking sales from Ford and GM when they both have sales increases? What is more likely, customers with older dodge trucks are trading them in with hopes of better quality. From Fiat, a company known for poor quality. Ram customers surely have more guts than I do, risking 10s of thousands of dollars on these trucks. If quality hasn't improved, which I suspect, they are done this time.

@R3NxSTONE,"You should drive a eco boost... you'd be surprised how efficient and the power it makes. I fear no hemi and do not miss my hemi."

Don't need to PUTC did. The Hemi spanked the Eco boost loaded and unloaded.

That's exactly what happened."

@Hemi V8 not much of a difference when you factor in a V8 8 spd compared to a tiny V6 with 6 gears.

I will take the Ford because it will not be in service any where near what the Ram will be.

My sister inlaw has the outdoorsman hemi 8 spd ... gas mileage on the same roads I drive 15 mpg empty box... my F150 ecoboost is getting 17 MPG with 500 to 600 in the box.

Been there and done the Ram advantage... trouble is there was no advantage only sorrow having to visit the service department. Ram could tow ten seconds faster and get five miles per gallon better and this truck owner would still be happy with moving to Ford because my last three rams were service nightmares... been there done that will not repeat!


@ R3NxSTONEx, I would have been blessed if my Ford would have made it to the service department. It burnt to the ground with not much left to service. Been there done that. Good luck with that Ford bud. Hope it's every thing and more. : )

My employer is not happy with their Ford F350! It just cost them $5800 at the local Ford dealership to get the truck running again. It only has 81,000 miles on it. My Silverado just rolled over 345,000 miles on it and I told them what I think about their Ford.

I can't speak for the rest of you guys, but I've NEVER been a "happy" Ford owner.

(Ford Motor Co. is threatening legal action if Ram keeps claiming that its pickups offer "best-in-class" towing.

Ram's response? In so many words, it's telling Ford to go pound sand.

At issue is Ford's claim in mid-July that a 2015 F-450 4x4 Crew Cab pickup can tow 31,200 pounds.

That is 1,200 pounds -- about the weight of a good-sized horse -- more than the Ram 3500's highest towing capacity of 30,000 pounds in a 4x2 Regular Cab pickup. So Ford claims the "best-in-class" towing crown for heavy-duty pickups.)

HAHA Ram tells Ford to pound sand that funny as hell!

@To all.
You can discuss reliability and better trucks as long as you want, but numbers don't lie.
You see that every month after months. July is going to be no exception and RAM will crush competition. Gaining 2 digits , best July in 10 years . Ford is gonna post a loss again. Let market to speak.
BTW : New aluminum Ford is not going to save them. RAM weight is nothing to talk about compare to the new Ford. It's very close.
Little weigh saving is not going to ofset extra price, insurance and body panel repair cost. But on other hand, sucker is born every minute.

Can't beat the facts better toss a insult... Just like a typical Ram owner.

When Ram owner are presented facts and they can't win a argument three things happen:

They go off subject avoiding the truth and present a new question about another Brand

They provide a link that is so dumb and they call it gospel

Or their limited IQ's try to find insults.

The Ram Jihad is in full swing.

If it isn't Mohammed Zviera it is Mohammed Hemi-V-BinLaden.

WTF?

I'm not surprised Mohammed Hemi-V-BinLaden didn't answer my post as it makes total sense.

Not every truck or vehicle in a recall will have a failure just like not every smoker will get cancer.
It is a matter of playing the odds and safety people in government i.e. NHTSA would not play the odds.

Do this recalls affect reliability or durability?
Only if they are not remediated or caught in a timely fashion.

Like I said earlier, JD Power, Vincentric, and Consumer Reports all tend to give Ram a poor rating.
If all three say similar things then the odds are they aren't as good as the rest.

The gap has closed between Ram and the competition.

Funny, when Ford sales get posted and they are in 1st once again it is pointed out by the Jihadists that sales do not show reliability.........................

BUT

it does for Ram...........

Guts

Glory

Jihad
