Ram 1500

  • 1,200 miles
At about 1200 miles on vehicle noticed a low squeal sound from engine or transmission. At present there is 1500 miles on vehicle and the squeal has gotten worst. The noise begins after about one or two minutes of starting, and is contumely squealing. The dealer ship ran test and said it was normal. I drove another 2009 1500 Ram and the noise was not there, or in the next 1500 Ram from another dealership. Dealership refuses to go any further with the problem, quote: We can¿T figure where the noise is coming from, so it must be normal unquote. Vehicle is swb.
