The other morning I started my Dodge Ram 1500 to warm up. I use it daily for construction work and it has been very reliable until that morning. I went back in my home and ten minutes later I walked out to find it on fire. My parents, who are in the their eighties and my three kids were inside the house. I had to jump into my truck that was fully ablaze and shift it into neutral to coast it away from my home so not to harm my family. I am writing to you so that you will take the initiative to warn others that own the same vehicle. I could have lost my family and my home. However, I did lose what helps provide for my family...all my tools and the truck that I used daily for work. No one should go through what my family and I are going through due to this incident. Please send a warning out to all of those who bought the same model. Owners of this model need to be warned for they may lose so much more than I did.
