problem #3

Apr 012010

Ram 1500

  • 85,000 miles


The side panels of the truck bed started to rust through with 2 inch holes. Then a couple of months later we noticed the truck was making a funny noise underneath. Climbed under to find out that the frame was all rusted and large holes throughout and it was only hanging on by a thin piece of rusted metal. A mechanic welded a small plate underneath towards the front of the frame to try and hold things together.

Consumer called complaining about him just found out about a problem with the subframe on the vehicle and he just wants people to be aware of this probably which is that of someone drills or intends to make any type of hole on the truck it can fdamge the structure of the vehicle and will automaticly void the manufacture warranty on the vehicle.
