Good question, and this is what has been published:

How much will I get for my car?
According to NHTSA, the buyback program requires FCA to give a refund of the purchase price minus depreciation plus an additional 10 percent.


They do not define how they figure "depreciation".

It's only the 2500, 3500, and 4500 4WD trucks that have these problems. The 1500's 4WD and all the 2WD have no more front suspension problems than any of the other brands.

And it is model years 2008-2012. Further, I believe that the result will be a recall to replace the tie rods (which is the problem) and not a buy back.

Only if you run Premium Fuel which has the same cost or higher than diesel. Found this out on another TRUCK site; low grade regular gas will not provide the fuel mileage that is quoted by Ford or the performance.

A lot of end users do not realize that the newly designed series of engines being built by the vehicle manufactures. Are now requiring that the engines must run on premium fuel to obtain the best performance/fuel mileage of the engine.

My neighbor fun this out with his new 2015 Ford Escape and Mustang that they bought.

I just got Diesel at Costco for $2.37.
My 2WD 2500 is not recalled, makes twice the torque of a ecoboost and actually get 24mpg highway, 18mpg city and 16mpg towing our TT.
I know several people who are very dispointed in the real-world mpg on the v6 ecoboost and none that get anywhere near the epa numbers, even with premium.

We traded our 2010 4.7 Ram 1500 on our current 2013 5.7 Ram 1500. I remember in the car fax on the 2010 the tie rods had been replaced, guess that was the recall ???

So happy with the 2013 5.7, much more power and as good if not better gas mileage than the 2010 4.7

Yes Dodge Man Thru & Thru

Probably, but some of the replacement parts were also bad early on.

Did a search on depreciation rates. They aren't consistent. Curious what FCA will come up with.
