problem #1

  • 17,000 miles
While driving 25 mph the fiber glass cap that covers the pick up bed flipped up in the front, causing the hydraulic pistons to break free and fling into the road. This incident caused the cover to split straight down the middle. Dealer and the manufacturer had been notified of the problem.
