I'm truly sorry for you. I believe there will be more of us to follow you. This will not be good for the dealers or the customers.
My personal take on the situation is the problem is two fold.
1 The Thermal Management Systems that come when any 8 speed is ordered. The ZF is 2 years old and pretty much bullet proof by itself.
2 The Air Suspension System is part of the HFE model. Range Rover has been doing air suspension forever with auto leveling. The introduction of speed lowering along with vairable wt loading that a pickup has could be quite a challange.
I trully like the 2013 RAM I've ordered. It was my reason to change after 35 years of Fords.
I really like my dealer and as concerned for him as I am for me. Decisons to send customers away is not good for their business sort term and long term.
BTW Larmine Hemi/6 speeds are being ordered and delievered in 4 weeks. This has happened with my dealer.
Once again I'm sorry for your loss.
