problem #2

Ram 2500 8-cyl

  • 90,000 miles
Vehicle went into the dealership for repairs/replacement of the gas tank straps and also the exhaust straps. Was notified by dealership that the frame was rusted and they were able to put their fist through the hole. Car was never in a situation were rust like that could have occurred. At this time they are stating that straps are not covered due to rust. The dealership repaired the frame by welding a plate over the hole. Not sure how safe that is.
