RE: Customer Satisfaction Is Not A Recall

Yes, but this is not a TSB where they may/will fix for free if you bring it in with the problem. In this letter they want you to bring it in. I know it is symantics. This is just for information. No reason to stress that it makes your brand look bad because it has a recall (they all do)...or rather please bring it in before it breaks letter.

RE: Customer Satisfaction Is Not A Recall

What years/engines does it cover? I haven’t seen anything on our ‘15 3.6L Durango Limited... I think 2017 and maybe 2016. My friend got the letter. I will take another look and confirm. It related to a software flash so the egr valve does not slam shut and damaging the valve.

Customer Satisfaction Is Not A Recall

Anyone with a Grand Cherokee or Durango get the customer satisfaction letter for the EGR? Looks like the new marketing trend is to not call it a recall. It is a customer satisfaction campaign. Interesting take on the process.

RE: Windy day reveals the 2019 Ram 1500...

The look of a truck is about #153 on the list of what motivates me to buy. For proof, I offer the fact that I bought one of the 1st year Nissan Titans that looked like a hearse :) Seriously, everyone gets all excited over these "leaked" photos that I'm sure the manufacturer throws out to get the buzz started. Here's a good question for all you Paparazzis - Why would a manufacturer badge a truck they were trying to keep secret???? They are pre-production testing the build process and quality. You would be surprised how many are built before the first actually get to the consumer.

RE: Windy day reveals the 2019 Ram 1500...

Somebody at FCA really messed up. Those probably should never have been outside without their camo even if they were covered. I'd argue that someone at FCA did their job exactly as they were told. Pretty easy to plan that on a day that was forecast to have some wind. I guess if you are under the theory it was a planned leak that would be possible. But I don't think that was the case here.

RE: Gear indicator blank

Is there an option in your settings to show gear indicator? I know in many of the FCA products you have the option on what you see for the gear selection. But that is with the electric shifter and I think you have the manual selector.

RE: Is Your Trailer "Tracking" True

The "look in your mirrors" comments are laughable. Its a 5er... All your goimg to see in your rear view is the pinbox. Nice of the OP to take the time to flag them down. Only way this would go noticed is by another motorist following behind. I think they meant side mirrors. You should be able to visualize a difference comparing the view from the right side mirror relative to the view of the left side mirror.

RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

High volume is suppose to equal lower price. Yet this simple law of economics has no place in the truck and SUV business apparently! In this category, high volume = higher prices. Pick-up trucks in particular are a hot trend over the last few years that shows no sign of declining and prices continue to increase significantly. OEM's are raking in the cash on these high margin sales...make no mistake about it. And there is no stopping the trend...until fuel hits $4-5 per gallon. You are confusing supply with demand. High demand yields higher prices. High supply without demand will yield lower prices. No confusion. Just a different "law" I was referring to. There's not enough demand to drive prices. And there is plenty of supply to keep up with demand. Generally higher volume production quanties = lower costs. What you are describing is a downward sloping supply curve. Yes in some industries like computers this is true. It does not apply in the automotive industry. In the automotive industry the input prices are generally increasing. Of course tooling and fixed costs are amortized over a larger quantity but variable costs do increase. "There's not enough demand to drive prices. And there is plenty of supply to keep up with demand. " The OEM's are simply meeting the demand at their price point but would gladly supply more if there was demand. If demand falls they will supply fewer at a lower price.

RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

That's why they make and XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum, King Ranch, etc. People can buy what they want. Amazing people cannot wrap their heads around that. Just like everyone that buys a house does not purchase a 10k square foot home on the beach. Everyone has options but some are fixated the most extreme choices available.

RE: Ram 6 vs 8 speed

Page 1 of this thread Wilbur1 asked why don't they offer the eight speed with the 6.4 2500. Useing the the Ram reps comments in the link above was to answer the question posed & being bantered in this thread. At least that was my understanding. I didn't copy paste and read the link. I suppose the question there was more general as in with Duallys and using the Cummins. I may have misinterpreted your comment. I thought you meant the rep was incorrect about the statement " Ram reps comments is that the 2500 gas HD isn't rated to tow 30k or carry 7K" where they never mentioned 2500 only the HD lineup.

RE: Ram 6 vs 8 speed

The stupid part of the Ram reps comments is that the 2500 gas HD isn't rated to tow 30k or carry 7K either. At least he got the part right about the eight speed not being able to hold greater weights in Park on a hill without the risk of it breaking & rolling down the hill. The question wasn't why not in the 2500 but in the HD lineup.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla banruptcy on the horizon. Musk is running out of money so fast that he is not even testing the 3. This is a move of desperation. Even a company as good as Toyota can't do this. The water is coming over the dam.Again an old article from March. The capital raise was supposed to be in 2016 but was delayed because Tesla was doing so well. Then Tesla went to market for a loan instead of equity and it was way over subscribed. Ya, and the reason they couldn't premier the semi was because Tesla was helping Puerto Rico! ROTFLMAO, I have heard some bovine excrement in my life but that was one of the biggest I believe! They are hand making each car because they are WAY behind. Look at Musk's schedule. None of the cars are tested. It's going to get ugly for them real soon. Or in your time table time, about 6 months to a year. They seem to be in damage control. They have been posting pictures of the working production line trying to dispel the stories the Model 3 is being hand built. Seen here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cwzung6gagt9r8q/fake-moon-landing_545.jpg?raw=1 Oops, posted the wrong image. The story is here So based on that photo, are you saying Richard Nixon lied to us? Yes one big sales job. It was all an illusion :B

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Will the real Elon Musk stand up.,I would tend to use another word other than Ironman He is now abandoning Tesla for the Bitcoin Business. Real life ironman - Elon Musk, has just announced that he is about to quit his position in Tesla in order to make room for a new business venture which he believes will change world more than Tesla, SpaceX and Solar City ever could. His new venture is an Bitcoin Trading System and, although he didn't come up with the idea, he invested $770 Million in it which allowed him to control all of the The Bitcoin Code decisions. He has his problems and seemingly lack of reality of timelines required for mass production but that reads like an Onion story. I would file that under satire or fake news.

RE: Tire wear a bit uneven - pos camber adjustment?

... I've always heard not to reverse tires, even if they aren't directional. Is it a valid option to try? Hmmm, never heard that before. Always thought you could mount either side on a non-directional tire. Mine have white letters on the outside, and the same lettering but in black on the inside. Always just assumed that was so you could choose one or the other? Never heard that. How would you do the standard tire rotation if that was true? Oh, meant remount the opposite. Should still be able to do that unless one side is White lettered like you said.

RE: Different radius tires on truck

AFAIK it is quite common for the manufacturer to supply a spare with a different size rim so I don't think the previous owner pulled a fast one on you. As said above it's the overall size that matters, not the size of the rim. Their may be some difference but I don't think the spare is meant for long-term use. While this is certainly true I cannot understand why manufacturers don't offer a matching spare tire option including tire pressure monitor. I would have gladly paid for it. Seriously, how much trouble could it possibly be to grab all 5 tires from the same bin? Cost is a big one. Plus these are not full time 4x4 so treat it as a temporary solution like other temporary spares and get the damaged tire replaced ASAP.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

And another delay but nothing a few more subsidies won't fix :) I have to hand it to him he quickly saw the opportunity for another potential handout after Maria struck Puerto Rico http://money.cnn.com/2017/10/06/technology/tesla-semi-delay/index.html At the stratospheric multiples investors are giving this company one has to wonder how many more missed deadlines, quality issues and production problems they are willing to take before pulling the rug out. I think car production is not the main aim of Mr Musk, but making money on the short term money market is. Unless he is trying to corner the market on moving out deadlines he still has to execute on some items.
