problem #1

Dec 222016


  • 117,000 miles
I purchased my 2015 Ram 4500 new, within the first 3000 miles the front tires were showing uneven wear, by 50,000 miles the uneven wear was sever. I replaced front tires and had a front-end alignment performed. Within approx. 3000 miles again, the front tires were wearing unevenly. At approx. 117,000 the ABS service light came on, I called the dealership and they said to come N next week and they would change a wheel sensor but the vehicle was safe to drive until then. The day after the ABS light came on however, the hub bearings went out completely and caused a small fire. I had the hub bearing, brake caliber, brake pads and rotor changed as a result of the bearings failure. These have not changed the uneven wearing and has increased the occasionally sever wobble/shake that occurs at mid speeds when a rough spot in the road or a semi sharp curve is in the roadway.
