Dave532 is on a distinguished road

My new torque converter arrived last week Thursday. I dropped the truck off this morning. They gave me a free rental (Caravan) due to the "early failure" of the torque converter. Picked up my truck this afternoon and found the noise gone.

Impressed with:
How quick they diagnosed the issue.
They didn't argue with me at all.
Quick repair.
Problem appears to be solved the first attempt.
Free rental car.

Dissappointed with:
truck was not washed when I picked it up

This all occured at Burnsville Dodge in Minnesota.

I was aware of the Starz case but I feigned ignorance to gauge how they would react to the noise.
After a test drive, they initiated the Starz case discussion with me and ordered a new torque converter the same day. I was impressed.

I noticed the noise around 3000 miles but it was very subdued and there was no associated vibration.

Since new, my truck is daily driven, has towed 3 cars less than 500 miles total. Build month is June.
