2006 Dodge Ram HD

Engine not specified

Dodge in California, United States
Sep 2011 - Sep 2014
93000 mi US $150 Tach not getting correct signal...would show revs <500 rpm event at freeways speeds. Turns out sending unit from engine was not functioning correctly and the dash unit was replaced under aftermarket warranty for $100 deductible. Check engine light came on. 
102000   Took in initially for front-end alignment. Lo and behold, new service advisor informed me that the entire front suspension had to be replaced to the tune of $5K. He was shocked when I informed him I had an extended warranty. All was covered. Electric lock and window started working only intermittently on rear driver's side door. Required an entire new wiring harness for the truck. Luckily I paid only a single deductible of $100 for this and the suspension.

38000 mi   I noticed coolant under my wife's truck. It's under warranty (extended) but it's a $200 deductable....so I tightened up some fittings & now I'm good. I won't do anything to the vehicle if it voids the warranty.

We live where AC isn't an inconvenience unless we leave the area: dealership suspected a plugged coolant line & said the problem is resolved Diverter for blower not working: dealer maintained diverter door needed replacing. Repair done today....haven't been in the truck yet. My wife drove it home....after all, it's her truck. wiring harness for driver's side passenger door replaced
