Default Warranty or Wear & Tear?

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram and I noticed yesterday the steering wheel is coming apart where I hold my hand when I drive. The cover is peeling off in my hand. I am thinking dodge would consider this wear & tear, but it seems a little soon for the steering wheel covering to be failing. If anybody else has seen this issue please let me know. Thanks.

I think it's reasonable to expect the cover to hold up more than a year. I've owned 20 year old vehicles that had no problems with a steering wheel cover. Unless you have 100k on the odometer I would say you have a reasonable bitch.

If your truck is within the warranty period of time and mileage, it should be covered under warranty with no issues.

I guess I need to stop by Dodge and see what they say. The truck only has 10,000 miles, so its still under the initial warranty.

The steering wheel is under the pre-authorization process the Chrysler has. Meaning that your dealership will need to take pictures of the steering wheel and send them in to get authorization to replace the steering wheel.
