RE: 2001 Dashboard Cracks
I'm glad I have an '02!
Seriously - Dodge does not care.
My original rack went out by 20,000 km's.
My current one was leaking again at 64,000 km's. Over warranty by 4,000km's.
Dodge did not give a ****. Dealer offered to drop the price by about $100 - on $1K.
The kick in the nards - is that they switched to a difference supplier because of the failures - kept it quiet.
If I were to replace it again - it would probably last. Will have to in winter when it gets cold again.
If the import guys could make a decent full sized pickup - the big 3 would be toast.
They wanted me to trade-in - I noted the following reasons:
1) The Hemi can't properly tow a 5th due to the lack of low-end torque and the fact that it tries to tow in "overdrive" (545rfe 4th is the same ratios as my 46re 4th).
2) I have had warranty issues to deal with - but at least my 5.9 does not through valve springs or stall.
3) $45K CAD to replace mine at $38K three years ago.
So - I bought the 7/160km extended warranty at lease buy-out and have 5 more years of payments...
