Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
I have placed three sets of rotors on my 2004 Dodge 1500 Ram quad cab in 65,000 miles. First set warped at about 18,000 miles, the dealership turned them and charged me $90. They in turn warped again at about 23,000 miles. Replaced them with waggner high performance rotors at about $110 a piece. The rotors and pads lasted about 35,000 and the rotors were so warped, they couldn't be turned. Dealership is absolutly no help what so ever. They deny even having a problem. I told the service writer type in Dodge brake problems and you'll get more than your share of info. He said he couldn't find anything. I've been driving Chrysler products for over 40 years... this lemon has ended all that.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,500 miles
2004 Ram 1500 hemi sport qc had terrible shimmy in front end upon stopping and truck was hard to control. Dealer stated rotors were warped and turned them. This was at 9500 miles. Again at 15000 miles truck is doing same thing. Dealer said they would turn them again but that was all. Said they could turn them as many times as they wanted. Said they turned them but the wheels haven't been removed from truck. Dealer or Dodge unwilling to fix problem even though both admit there is a problem. Back rotor is warped and has bad groves in it. Feel I am getting bum deal on 36000 dollar truck.
