    I'd agree if each failure was uniquely random. But these are fairly low mileage, high proportion in Canada, 2014's and 2015's, and maybe have similar causes. Just a few things that make you go hmmm...

    Hi 2KR88, welcome to the forum and sorry to hear of your misfortune. This subject has been discussed in the past and my estimate of engine failures is very much like yours. I am estimating around 20 catastrophic failures, but we don't know for sure. With the number of failures as low as we have estimated, I have a couple of thoughts regarding this. The very low number suggests that this is not a design problem, though we don't have a large sample of engines with high mileage yet. It is more likely, IMO, that the issues are primarily ones of quality control. That would include assembly issues or bad components, in other words, poor quality control.

    Please keep us posted as to the resolution of your engine replacement. Best of luck!

    Add me to the list. 2014 with 1700 miles blew up last November. I got a buyback and replaced with 2015 EcoD. 15000 on the 2015 and so far so good (knocking on wood).

    Extended warranty provides me with rental at least. Got a 2015 or 16 ram1500 with the Hemi. I miss my diesel gas mileage. Just did 1600km round trip up north and averaged 15L/100km. My Eco did it at 9.4
