Carnut2 is on a distinguished road

Purchased my 2012 Ram 1500 4 mos. ago. Have had it back to repair a run of clear coat down the outer edge of the driver door. They had to sand it off and clear the door. Now , I have noticed areas of the front hood where it appears not enough color was put on under the clear. Flecks of gold/brown. Dealer said the hood will have to be painted and cleared. GREAT ! Starting to get really discouraged. Consumer Reports states a lot of problems with paint and power equipment ( windows, doors, etc.) on these vehicles. Left Ford for the styling and pricing. Maybe you really do get what you pay for.
