So this issue has been a curse for my truck.
I've got a 2009 1500 4x4 CC Laramie, and I have had to deal with this 5 times. The first time, it was of course covered by the recall. Time #2, I argued with the service guys and they covered the fix at no cost because it obviously wasn't done right the first time. Time #3, I was deployed and my wife brought it in and they charged her $250 to fix it. Occurrence #4, I was home and brought it in and the young service guy just said, oh this is the recall and didn't charge me.
Now, for the 5th time, I brought my truck in and they want to charge me $870. The service rep told me, oh this is the drivers side gear this time not the recall issue. I told him he was full of crap, then he tells me maybe we can negotiate the cost of the fix. I tell him well that must mean you truly are trying to screw me.
I'm calling the number on the recall sheet today. Wish I had seen the phone number before (eh, stupid me). Although the do it yourself fix is really looking interesting to me! I may give it a try, after I drive to a different dodge dealer to buy a new actuator!
Anybody have any thoughts or recommendations ? So far, I'm the only person Ive seen on the forum to need multi-fixes and it never solves the issue?
Thanks for the help!
