Ram 1500 4WD

  • miles
Replacement of both driver and passenger side front disc rotors required due to cracking of the actual rotors. After only 23000 miles this is not expected wear. No excessive use of brakes during this time. Due to safety reasons, rotors were replaced. Local Dodge dealer was informed (marin Dodge, san rafael, ca). I am awaiting a response from Dodge/dealer as to wether I shall be recompensed some/all of the cost of replacing this failed component.
