RE: FCA Investigation Finds Inflated Sales/update page 2

The only thing Chrysler and GM needed was the Government to demand the banks who BTW got trillions of free money to loan both refinance their loans and there would have been no need for any government money or bankruptcy. The reason for the bankruptcy was to open our Union Contract and gut it. Mainly our health care and Jobs Bank. The only reason Ford wasn't in the same boat was their loans came due one year earlier. Otherwise they would have been in court right alongside of Chrysler and GM. The messed up part is everyone of you know this is true but still just can't help yourself can you. Don

RE: FCA Investigation Finds Inflated Sales/update page 2

First and the last time!... I count this as your fifth post on the subject of the accounting irregularities. Is math a problem at FCA? Sorry that fruit was just hanging low and irresistible. :W PS. my next truck will probably be a Ram, maybe I can buy a U.S. truck and pay with Canadian $ at 1:1? :B Don't fire those accountants yet. LOL your math is way off but that's ok.

RE: FCA Investigation Finds Inflated Sales/update page 2

First and the last time! If FCA is cooking the books then whoever is involved needs to be fired. But since nothing ever happens to the big boys and girls at the top (think GM and ignition switch here) it is all a big joke. Now on to this. From the DFP "The automaker stressed that its quarterly revenue figures have been accurately reported and unrelated to the way sales figures were being calculated and reported. After reviewing its sales reporting practices, FCA said it realized that it was possible for dealers to report sales one month and then "unwind" some transactions recorded in its system and return vehicles to the dealer's unsold inventory." "ronically, FCA now says its internal review discovered that it under-reported sales by nearly 19,000 cars and trucks since 2011. As a result of the changes, FCA's annual sales totals increased in three of the past six years by as many as 14,996 cars and trucks and decreased the other three years by as many as 8,991 vehicles, according to a sales chart the company released Tuesday." "The sales increase streak is meaningless, but it makes a headline and it’s nice for the company to tout itself,” said Peter Henning, a Wayne State University law professor and a former SEC investigator" So until the final report comes out the normal FCA haters are going to talk smack.

RE: FCA Investigation Finds Inflated Sales/update page 2

Right, fraud never hurts anyone but shareholders...:h From innocent employees that lose their jobs to worst case scenarios like Enron. Not that this is the case here but shareholders are not the only ones to feel the impact of things like this. The shareholders won't get hurt as dealer sales have nothing to do with them. Factory sales to dealers not the end consumer are what they care about. Don

RE: Old Truck Story

My Dad still has his 1991 D350 Cummins with a manual trans. At 87 he is no longer RVing but uses the truck all the time, just not through a drive thru lol. Man is that thing loud! Don

RE: Brain challenge

Frank your truck has heated and cooled rear seats? The Outdoorsman I had ordered had heated/cooled frt seats and heated rear if you ordered the comfort group package. The Laramie trim has standard Rear heated seats, but only with the bucket seat package. Some dealers will add a graphics package to vehicles on their lots to help sell older stock. Maybe that was what your buddy was seeing? Don

RE: FCA under investigation

As far as a dealer over charging you, did you get a quote on that $184 oil change and $136 fuel filter :E ? Not sure how a fuel filter on a 5.9 could cost that much, my 04 it took about 15 minutes to change out the factory filter. They didn't over charge you for the labor @ 0.5 hours but the factory filter for a 5.9 should be around $38 last time I bought one. But that was about six years ago. Don

RE: FCA under investigation

And why would someone take the words of an uninvolved party and assume they are privy to any facts of the case? Here are some scenarios about this dealer that seems to know all the facts: 1. They took the bribe and have a vested interest in this going away. 2. They didn't take the bribe but need FCA to survive so have a vested interest. 3. They think they are smarter than everyone else so qualified to speak on something without facts. 4. If they actually have facts or are involved it is a very poor decision to be discussing a case that may very well involve them. 5. They are just guessing but want to be part of the action. Dude where in this statement did I say what he said are the FACTS? " I talked with the owner of the dealership I go to and he said that it's just a dealer disgruntled about something FCA did." This is his opinion and being a long time dealer they all know each other and go to the dealer meetings! As a small time dealer I'm 100% sure it is #2 in your list, just like most other dealers. Funny JALLEN4 posted this about the dealer, "Napleton likes to keep his lawyers busy. He's also suing Volkswagen over the diesel scandal and sued Jaguar Land Rover over right of first refusal. At least the legal community will profit! " then this "Nope. If FCA did something wrong, they should be held accountable. But like a divorce, there's his side, her side, and the truth. We'll just have to wait and see what comes out of it." I agree 100% with his last statement and if FCA is cooking the books then whoever is involved needs to be fired. But since nothing ever happens to the big boys and girls at the top (think GM and ignition switch here) it is all a big joke. Don

RE: FCA under investigation

So we have one poster with a ram in his sig and the FCA truck guys circling the wagons fast? You funny. I talked with the owner of the dealership I go to and he said that it's just a dealer disgruntled about something FCA did. As for the DOJ finding any facts LOL they couldn't find their ASS with both hands and a road map! Don

RE: 3.0 VM EcoDiesel Oil Requirement has Changed

The dealer corrected themselves and said we can run either oil but it has to be 5W-40. They are putting in the Shell Rotella 5W-40 We recommend you use 5W-40 synthetic engine oil such as MOPAR or Shell Rotella that meets FCA Material Standard MS-10902 and the API CJ-4 or ACEA E9/E7 or ACEA A3/B4 engine oil category is required. Here are the specs for the Euro Pennzoil. PENNZOIL PLATINUM ® EURO SAE 5W-40 FULL SYNTHETIC MOTOR OIL meets or exceeds the performance requirements of API SN/CF and ACEA A3/B3-10, A3/B4-10 Don

RE: 3.0 VM EcoDiesel Oil Requirement has Changed

Wait, so you can't run regular 15W40 diesel oil in the Ecodiesel? I could have swore I saw my cousin filled his with 15W40. I guess I better tell him that he is using the wrong oil. We still have to run the Euro blend oil!

RE: 3.0 VM EcoDiesel Oil Requirement has Changed

Yep downloaded the 2015 diesel supplement from your link and it now reads (from page 104 now) We recommend you use 5W-40 synthetic engine oil such as MOPAR or Shell Rotella that meets FCA Material Standard MS-10902 and the API CJ-4 or ACEA E9/E7 or ACEA A3/B4 engine oil category is required. Not the CEAC3 SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Low Ash engine oil meeting FCA US Material Standard MS-11106 or Pennzoil Ultra Euro L full synthetic 5W-30 motor oil. Thanks Troy Don

RE: 3.0 VM EcoDiesel Oil Requirement has Changed

If this is indeed true, this is fantastic news for EcoDiesel owners. I know that the current standard is technically ACEA C3 5w-30 or something like that which is almost like finding unicorn tears in the US. All oils meeting this spec were at minimum $8.00 per quart, or worse. This would actually make things cheaper for Ecodiesel owners. Get 2 gallons and 2 quarts and now your oil costs only 50 bucks instead of 80 to 120 bucks for ACEA C3 meeting 5w-30. Source would be nice though. NAPA and Auto Zone both have it around here, but at a price of 9.35 and 8.99. I can get the Penn for 6.85 at the dealer with my discount. Filters are the thing that is hard to find. There are NO oil filter that meet the factory specs as of three months ago. There are filters out there but both companies have yet provided an data the there filter has been tested and meets the factory spec. Don

RE: 3.0 VM EcoDiesel Oil Requirement has Changed

Can't find anything about the new spec where did you hear this Troy? Is it for the 2016 engines or does it back date to all of them? Don This is from page 103 of the "Diesel Engine" supplement. Engine Oil Viscosity (SAE Grade) "Only use ACEAC3 SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Low Ash engine oil meeting FCA US Material Standard MS-11106 or Pennzoil Ultra Euro L full synthetic 5W-30 motor oil, which is recommended for all operating temperatures. This engine oil improves low temperature starting and vehicle fuel economy. My truck goes in Wednesday for an oil change.

RE: Ram owners; Ram 1500/2500 ownership question

Norfla71 have you driven a 2500 since they changed them over to coils in the rear? With the tires aired down they ride very well. If you were thinking of keeping the currant RV I would say jump into the 2500. Since you are going with a Airsstream the 1500 will be fine. As I said i tow a 6600# with no sway or power issues at all. I do think you are over thinking the powertrain cost after warranty IMO. As for the Mopar Factory extended coverage you are correct the diesels do not qualify for the Lifetime Max Care Coverage but you can get a bumper to bumper 7/120,000 plan that covers everything the factory bumper to bumper covers. I'm not as worried about the engine and or emissions as I am the high dollar electronics that are in my truck. Start adding things like Ford's trailer park assist and you are in the thousands of dollar range to repair that thing. Same with the new hands free park and un-park assist garbage. Forward collision warning and avoidance systems big dollar ticket items to repair. The list goes on and on and at the trim level you want you will want the Lifetime BB coverage if this is going to be your last truck. Good luck with whatever you get I'm sure you will love either one. Don

RE: DEF Issues

Glad you got it straighten out. I have always ran my def down until the "Fill DEF" light comes on. It is sitting just under 1/4 of a tank in the red with 1000 miles until the next oil change. Will fill it next week and then change the oil. Mine uses one tank every 10,000 miles or every oil change. Don

RE: Ram owners; Ram 1500/2500 ownership question

Since he is towing an Airstream after retirement and that is when they will be towing the 10,000 miles not now ("we will be towing maybe 10k a year once we hit the road, and only a few weeks total before retirement"). Beings the Airstream is aerodynamic like my boat, towing it with the 5.7 will not be an issue at all. I'm towing a 6600# boat and is not a problem for my EcoD and I was doing that without any brakes on the boat trailer (unknown to me). Sounds to me like the OP has already made up his mind and just wanted a little reinforcement on his decision. Don

RE: Step Mod

Just remember the steps are not going to protect the "hips" unless you happen to hit something with the steps. Can't tell from the pic but it looks like they are set back about an inch or so from the outside of the tire? This would put them inside the outer must part of the rear fender. The shop did do a great job fabricating them up for you. How are they attached to the truck? Don
