Ram 2500 6-cyl Diesel

  • 10,000 miles
Car was brought in 5 times to have various front end recalls performed, two different dealers bedard brothers in cheshire mass. And beterra for steering recall (now N49/NHTSA 13V-529) previously same recall had two or three different numbers. They have never had the parts and could never perform the recall. Because they say that the steering may fail at any moment I have used the vehicle only when I absolutely have no other transportation. Hence as of today the car has 17,200 miles only. The other problem is loss of coolant, the egr cooler has been leaking, I have had it at dealers three times and they have no clue how to repair. This is a common complaint. Because this internal leak goes into the turbocharger. The turbocharger failed and on 7/08/13 had to be replaced at 16,150 miles. That was the symptom of the egr cooler leak, but the cause (leaking egr cooler was not addressed then or on two following trips to the dealers. On to bedard and one to berterra. The Chrysler case number may be 24954056 after dealers worked on car two trouble codes appeared P052 and P0700 I don't want to continue driving a car that the steering will fail at any moment or the engine may blow because of coolant loss.
