So im going on my 4th dealer visit today

Problems are drop to 500rpm at redlights,squeeky dash,wierd steering noises lost steering once"

Replaced my throttle body so far. my tech said he test drove another 08 hemi that had the same rpm drop and he said he called dodge and there is no fix.

It is a software issue they say. This is REALLY getting old when someone rides in my truck they think its a 20 year old farm truck.

I cant be the only one with these issues

do i just have a lemon :./

Mine idles at 600 on the dot. No squeeky dash (thank the lord). But I do have a squeek in my drivers seat. What I do to fix that is slam my seat all the way back and hit the handle once good and it goes away for a month or two.

I have an 08 too and I haven't had one problem that I haven't caused myself because I beat the hell out of it runs like a champ starts no matter how hot or cold no noises or anything. Sounds like you guys picked out the wrong trucks from the lot.

Is it when you first start going or is the squeek always there in the passenger seat because I know once my truck warms up the squeek in my drivers seat is gone.

First I'd tell the dealer you think you've got a lemon, and ask them if they'll swap you out for another one. If not, then lemon law it, and don't necessarily hold it against dodge that one slipped through.

I think the reason they sold so well was because Dodge whacked almost 50% off the MSRP...I'm gonna knock on wood, my truck has been great!
