Ram 3500

  • 148,983 miles
I purchased a vehicle in October 2014. The miles was advertised as 81,000. The title and all of the paperwork shows 81,000. The title does not show true miles unknown or it does not show not actual miles. The Dodge dealership in covington, ga ran a carfax report of the vehicle in May 2017 and it had discrepancies of mileage rollback. Based on carfax and the calculations the vehicle has approximately 330,000 plus miles on it. I can not sell the truck. I can not trade it in because of the mileage rollback. This is something that I just found out in May 2017. I contacted the dealership and the owner would not talk to me about the issue. The owner had one of the employees to tell me that he will not be doing anything about it. This is against federal and state laws. Please help. Thank you.

Driving down the frwy at required speed when rt rear pass tire blew causing extensive damage to the wheel, rt rear panel & tailpipe. This tire had 3,000 mi. On it & we had chkd psig on all tires just previous to the blowout. This tire was a LT265/70R-17/10 terramax ht all position OWL made by dynamic tire. Les schwab replaced it with one just like it. We had a 4,000lb arctic fox cab over camper on the truck at the time. Dynamic states there is not enough evidence of poor quality or anything else that would name them as the responsible party.
