Traded my 2016 Ram RCSB for a new 2018 Quad cab last thursday . With all this rain here in Florida lately my week old truck has a major water leak that appears to be coming from the windshield. Called the dealer and have to drop it off. Hope they give me a loaner ! :confused:

Does it have a sunroof?


This is probably one of three things:


-sunroof drain tubes are plugged
-3rd brake light is leaking
-roof seals between the unisides and roof aren't seated.


The actual windshield may not be sealed, but I've only heard of that happening once

Great things to look for Thunderhorse, no sunroof, i bought a tradesman as i really like having the rubber floors. I can see the water coming from the right a pillar grab handle and running onto door panel and then floor. it is a large leak. I looked at the top of the windshield and there appears to be a void in the windshield buytl at the top right corner. I am torn about getting addressed now or wait another week. we are going camping next weekend and i need my truck to pull my camper .:Wow1:

I had my windshield replaced by Safelite and it didn't take very long, and I'd be hesitant to go any longer than necessary before addressing this with all the electronics in even a base model truck. Then again, the dealer may take a while getting it fixed.


Actually you're under warranty so they should provide you a loaner

You should have inquired about a loaner when you made the appointment. Most dealers don't have many loaners, and your chances of getting one decrease the closer you get to your appointment. Some dealers will let you "demo" one of their used vehicles if they are out of loaners. It just depends on the dealership. Make sure that you tell them you need a loaner, and not ask if you can have one. If you give them a choice they may tell you no.
